Here's one more documentary that's worth a look... The movie still includes extensive chats with [many artists], along with generous doses of their music. How wrong can you go?

While Echo In The Canyon was probably made with the best of intentions, it ultimately fails to satisfy or do justice to its source material.

For a music guy, Slater keeps his rock doc visually captivating with rare photographs, vintage TV performances and clips... the true stars of Echo in the Canyon are the timeless songs...

Divided almost equally between talking heads and musical performances, this doc is tuneful, insightful and, yeah, awesomely nostalgic.

Bob Dylan's son Jakob Dylan, 49, is the star performer in Andrew Slater's delightful movie...

As infectiously fun as it is to watch musicians talking about music they love by other bands, you can't help but wish that they would explore that love in a little more depth.
July 11, 2019
Roller coaster of emotion that ultimately proves how incomparable the originals are. While today's artists honoring them reinforces this, it's perhaps not [how] they intended.

A musical earthquake happened and Laurel Canyon was the epicenter.
July 5, 2019
The long sections of a tribute concert were distracting from the musical story of the classic bands...Still I enjoyed it well enough to recommend to any music fan

"Echo in the Canyon" tells a story about a very specific time and place in music, and Young lets the music do the talking for him.

"Echo in the Canyon" works more as a fond tribute than the kind of documentary that breaks new ground, but it's hard to imagine anyone being disappointed by the results.

Echo in the Canyon is a narrative, organizational mess. It's as if a drunken sailor is navigating the seas, wobbling from story port to story port. And that drunken sailor is Jakob Dylan.

The problem... is that [the movie] never shows us any reason why Jakob Dylan's presence shouldn't be considered a legacy hire.

The tunes are great, the stories are great, but Jakob Dylan keeps getting in the way, stealing the spotlight to the point of frustration.
