- Short clips from Model Shop (1969) are used throughout to help set the feeling of mid- to late-60's Los Angeles.
- Other musicians not mentioned in the documentary who were living in Laurel Canyon at the time include Jim Morrison, Joni Mitchell, and Linda Ronstadt. As well, members of the Monkees are briefly mentioned.
- 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.
- Graham Nash lived in Laurel Canyon with Joni Mitchell, and amazingly he never mentions her. She definitely was missed in this movie
- The film is framed with the beginning when the Chris Hillman of the Byrds moved to Laurel Canyon sometime in 1964 and ending with Neil Young quitting Buffalo Springfield on May 5, 1968.
