LEGENDS OF THE CANYON delivers the story of the advent of rock music spawned in the garden of the Hollywood Hills, Laurel Canyon. Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, The Mamas and the Papas, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt and many other great artists of the era were all inhabitants of Laurel Canyon and brought to life the anthems of a generation from the hills of this idyllic, commune-like setting in the late 1960s. Their songs continue to inspire and LEGENDS OF THE CANYON takes you there. Adding depth, color and authenticity to the film, famed rock photographer Henry Diltz (CSNY's official photographer) contributes a variety of original photographs, some never before exhibited as well as rare footage shot amongst the musicians that were the tribe of the Canyon.
Legends of the Canyon is a very interesting documentary if you are a child of the 60's and 70's. Would like to hear more about Joni Mitchell and some commentary by Neil Young but it is still worth watching.
Excellent, very interesting to hear the behind the scenes stories of Laurel Canyon in the late sixties and early seventies. It's a shame that Neil Young didn't offer his version of events from that time.
