A segment of Buffalo Springfield performing a medley of "For What Its Worth" and "Mr Soul" is shown. Neil Young is shown playing to the bassist, who is sitting just barely inside the range of camera and with his back to the camera. Buffalo Springfield's bassist Bruce Palmer had recently been deported to Canada on drug charges and one of the roadies had to stand in for him at the last moment. Although they were lip syncing to the song, they didn't want to reveal that the roadie couldn't play the bass; thus, he was seated with his back to the camera. See more »
The entire closing credits sequence plays over footage of one of the musicians playing guitar in a recording booth (the song is credited to Neil Young, near the end of the credit roll), See more »
Film was interesting strictly from an anecdotal point of view. Some interesting tidbits, archival footage and new versions of the old songs. Jakob Dylan was too fawning and not enough probing with his questions and the group session with Beck, Regina Spektor and Cat Power added nothing to the proceedings. As a result the doc lost some of it's focus at time.
Also, can someone tell me how the song 12:30 (Young Girls Coming To the Canyon)! was not included either in the film or over the closing credits. I mean, come on!
