The California Sound came out of Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s, when folk went electric. Jakob Dylan interviews prominent band members from the period (David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Michelle Phillips, Ringo Starr, John Sebastian, Brian Wilson), as well as musicians who were influenced by them (Tom Petty, Jackson Browne, Beck). He also recorded an album of seminal songs and produced a concert honoring them, but the most fun is hearing these legends talk about the creative explosion and cross-pollination that occurred. For those of us who lived thru this period, this proves a fascinating, informative look at an important era in American pop culture. For those younger, it’s essential in appreciating the time and the music. (Criterion Cinemas only)
