Just listen to the LP/CD
13 October 2017 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

10/13/17. We are talking about one of Rock's greatest LP of all time, and this documentary doesn't even play any of it? Fifty years ago today? The legacy is in the music itself, not all this gibberish! A discussion of the inspiration for the songs that were on the LP would have been a lot more interesting to listen to and add to the enjoyment of the music than the reminiscing of - who are these people??? Don't even bother with this one, just listen to the LP - really.
