Musical history lesson
10 June 2019 | by ccorral419See all my reviews

Relative new comer to the Director/Writer/Producer arena (Andrew Slater) grabs hold of the 1965-1967 LA (Laurel Canyon) music experience, showing us first hand how and when folk music went electric under the guidance of groups like The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas. Jakob Dylan (son of Bob Dylan) gathers a group of contemporaries (Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Regina Spektor and Norah Jones) in a Laurel Canyon home, as they look over 60's albums and discuss how music changed, all in preparation for a future live concert featuring the music of that time. While the contemporaries discuss the past, Dylan interviews the characters who lived the experience (Brian Wilson Michelle Phillips, Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Roger McGuinn, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Graham Nash, Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, John Sebastian and Lou Adler). As an interviewer, Dylan is rather and lifeless. However, his list of start studded interviewees are full of intriguing historical music stories that will keep you glued to the screen. Where Dylan succeeds is his live 2015 LA's Orpheum Theatre concert with Jade Castrinos, Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Regina Spektor and Norah Jones, as they bring the music of the past into the present. If you are at all a music fan, and even better yet you have any relationship with the Laurel Canyon neighborhood, you will not want to miss "Echo in the Canyon". Stick around for the credits as Bob Dylan makes a musical camera appearance.
