Trivia

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 »

User Reviews

 
Needed more of the actual artists less of 2nd generation Dylan
6 November 2019 | by jellopukeSee all my reviews

Unless you really want to see Jakob Dylan's monotonous voice singing all the classic 60's songs, then you're better off fast forwarding every time he's on screen and just watching the archival stuff. Better yet, find someone else to make this movie about the scene and not have a lame concert of knock offs. It has some merit though, it'll make you go back and re-listen to all that great music by the original artists!
