Because there isn’t quite enough of the original music, either informally played or in classic concert footage, this can’t quite go down as one of the truly great rockumentaries, but for anyone who formed their musical tastes around these big talents, this is a delightful wallow.

By keeping things short, sweet and dutifully tuneful, Echo in the Canyon is like the doc version of one of the period’s sonic nuggets, leaving you with a peace/love/understanding high and a desire to break out the vinyl for more of the same.

Echo in the Canyon appears all too content in banking on our nostalgia for the formidable roster of artists it has assembled, relying solely on our familiarity with their work to keep our attention rapt.
