To get substance, sometimes it takes pain. I wished this episode had been about ten times as long. With the coming of the Beatles to the US, we had something that only comes along in a century. Following the Fab Four, came the Rolling Stones and a whole host of Britishers. Of course, the music evolved to address the issues of the time, particularly, the war. This presentation gives us a glimpse at the likes of Bob Dylan and others who made the most gravity laden singers and performers. Their work became the anthems for the youth generation. We are made privy to the angst of a generation that could be drafted and dead within a few weeks...and for what? There is some nice music here, but the strength of the offering is in how it melded the underlying sickness in the country with the growth of music. Nicely done.
