Now showing on Netflix - - -

 

Echo in the Canyon  -  Documentary film, 2018 w / Jakob Dylan

 

A look back at the origins of the California sound, featuring many artists interviewed by JD. If you liked the Laurel Canyon documentary on Epix, this is a nice complement, as it is a much different format. The film also has clips of Dylan and other contemporary artists recreating many of the 60's songs in a way that's fresh and modern. The soundtrack is here on YT . . . 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30j5B_f4zOQ&list=PLpbShmf-5Ec0NryNkuelK-kygc5AJfGLd

 

It's nice to see that younger generations have taken an interest in these songs some 50 years later. When I was their age, I doubt I could have named one 50 year old song!

Happy 80th Birthday to Sir Cliff!

 

In honor of his 80th birthday, his YT Channel is posting premiere videos of past performances throughout the day, mostly from the 70's and 80's. Some are with The Shadows.

 

He had planned an 80th Birthday Tour around the UK, but covid canceled those plans. Now he is set to release his new autobiography at the end of October. He's an amazing artist.
