Indeed, as my fellow reviewer's agree, an incredible snapshot of how we were in 1968, and hat's off, still, to Tony Palmer for capturing the images which are wonderful for any young person studying our musical heritage, and indeed, for us to look back upon.
Although Patrick Allen (RIP) was THE 'in' voice-over man of the time, both this and Cream's 'Farewell Concert' have unfortunately been marred by his observations. Fair play, he may well have just been reading someone else's words from a script, but even when 'All My Loving' was originally broadcast, Allen's commentary gives the impression, but only during Cream's fiesty live clip from 'We're Going Wrong' that WE AS A GENERATION were going / had gone wrong. This was most objectionable at the time, and as a survivor from the era I still find it so today. But I am now old enough and most certainly ugly enough to be able to cope with this faux-pas, where Jack Bruce's song title and lyric, written after a falling out with his wife, was completely misconstrued, and thus gave the impression my /our generation were complete idiots for being Hippies.
However, the doc is well worth seeing for the Sixties music student, as it is charged with the fraught, tenseness associated with both the Vietnam War and the radical changes taking place as our music was abruptly evolving from pop to rock with a fiery attitude.
