User Reviews: Don’t go expecting to see a cool documentary about a wonderful era of pop music and culture. Yes, there are interviews and archival footage but way too much time is devoted to Jakob Dylan and some concert he put together featuring thinly talented contemporary musicians singing those songs and offering banal observations about an era before they were born. It might have been interesting to hear how current performers have been influenced by the California sound, but all they do is imitate the sounds without any of the depth. Very disappointing and very incomplete.
