This music documentary is produced and directed by the same filmmaker who brought Monterrey Pop to the screen. It features performances from a 1969 Toronto rock 'n roll festival. The film shows performers Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Eric Clapton, Bo Diddley, Alan White, Klaus Voorman and John Lennon and Yoko Ono with the Plastic Ono Band.
Another concert/document from director D.A. Pennebaker, this one looking at Lennon's set at the Toronto Peace Festival. There's a lot to talk about in this hour long film but Lennon's set is decent, although I found the band to be quiet lame and that includes the playing by Lennon and Eric Clapton. I'm curious to know how many drugs were taken before jumping on stage. The stuff with Yoko Ono was absolutely horrible. Her high pitches squeals and screams grounded my nerves and nearly pushed me over the edge. The best moments happen at the start of the show when we see clips from Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry.
