Episode 18 - “Echo in the Canyon” Review Pt. 1

August 8, 2019

Welcome Back! This week is a short review on the musical documentary: "Echo in the Canyon". This impressive doc follows Jakob Dylan through Los Angeles (NY and London) to interview the boomers of 1960's Laurel Canyon music scene. From interviewees like Roger McGuinn, to Ringo Starr, Stephen Stills to Jackson Browne, and the late/great Tom Petty, to Jakob and pals like Fiona Apple and Beck portraying their own versions of these foundational songs to a night at the Orpheum Theater in LA is a true gem. Segments of different groups that coincide with the evolution of the folk to pop/rock integration is laced together perfectly, and editing with the revised versions from Jakob Dylan and co. help to add significance. I give my brief summary of the film and all the things I loved! There's a small spoiler at the end so be warned, but all in all, I highly recommend this documentary to anyone with ears for music.
