We'll done documentary like Festival Express, 4 January 2015
Author: sburch2 from USA

This is a fantastic music documentary. If you ever have seen and loved Festival Express you will love this too! For the next generation of music lovers who missed out on the 60's & 70's life on the road. It is not to involved in he drug and drinking culture as Festival but more concentrated on the traveling and music they all play together and with other they meet on the way through their travels. Live concerts and private sessions on the train are very interesting and entertaining. They travel from California to New Orleans and show the landscapes along the way and a few stops. Concerts are played individual and all bands mixed. Kind of cool to see this type of once in a lifetime show documented for all to see! Shot on film gives it an authentic real feel doc. I wasn't even a big fan of these bands but now I am : )
