Grew up during this era. Huge Byrds fan. Good to see them recognized. No Doors? No Joni Mitchell? Did not enjoy the J Dylan covers nor his questionable interviewing skills. Many statements about how exciting the Vera was but movie did not capture it. So miss Tom Petty!

Love this music...loved this film! Would’ve given 4.5 stars if possible. As much as my fam (me, hubby, & teen dd) really enjoyed JDylan and the live concert/studio band, we were all really hoping for more of the original musIc/vocals/footage. Interviews with “The Greats” were fantastic! RIP Petty.

Rich with revealing observations and engaging anecdotes, Slater’s documentary skirts the nostalgia trap by entertainingly connecting with an impressive lineup of contemporary singer-songwriters referencing the influential '60s pop style with their own releases.

Even if Echo in the Canyon feels slightly anemic at 85 minutes or so, there are worse ways to revisit this epochal artistic moment than via Andrew Slater’s affectionate, intimate documentary.

I have a feeling Echo in the Canyon will be watched for decades into the future as the essential document of a very specific time and place that changed music forever.
