A new documentary film called Echo in the Canyon details how the folk-rock movement helped make L.A the center of the recording world in the late 1960s and '70s.
Michelle Phillips, Brian Wilson, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Jackson Browne, Ringo Starr, John Sebastian and Eric Clapton offer eyewitness accounts to the history made in the Laurel Canyon neighborhood of Los Angeles. They're combined with archival clips, photos and footage from a 2015 tribute concert.
Set to open the Los Angeles Film Festival, director Andrew Slater's project focuses on how The Byrds, The Mamas & the Papas and Buffalo Springfield changed the sound of rock and roll. (The Hollywood Reporter)
