- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsEveryone has a favorite album. This is mine now. Not a bad song and so amazingly remade. Thank you!
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsWas so pleased they didn't butcher this material and idea. REALLY well done.
- Rating: 3.5 out of 5 starsMost of the cover songs were pretty unsuccessful, wah ... but the stories and the original recordings used were brilliant.
- Rating: 3.5 out of 5 starsI find it amazing that Bob Dylan's name wouldn't even be mentioned. OK, he wasn't a Californian but his influence is all over the 60s and subsequent decades. Quite bizarre.
- Rating: 0.5 out of 5 starsMan this movie was terrible. All the conversations felt forced and Jacob Dylan did not stay behind the camera even once. A lot of the movie is focused on Dylan singing these great artist songs. It felt more like Jacob Dylan PR than a documentary. I went into it liking Jacob Dylan and I do not care for his music anymore after watching this.
- Rating: 4 out of 5 starsI really enjoyed this flashback in time, with Bob Dylan's son Jakob, to California in the 1960's and all the great music and bands that came together to create it.
- Rating: 0.5 out of 5 starsSelf-indulgent vehicle for Jacob Dylan's ego. There are some (few) interesting bits but mostly feels like he was trying pretty hard to get time in front of the camera. I'd rather hear classic songs by the original artists, not lame covers.
- Rating: 2 out of 5 starsThe interviews were great. But Jakob Dylan sings entire cover songs of theses 60's hits. I kept my remove handy and just fast forward through his lengthy and terrible covers.
- Rating: 3.5 out of 5 starsIf you're into music history of that era. I was and I enjoyed it.
- Rating: 4 out of 5 starsEcho in the Canyon is a loving tribute to a golden age of music. The music of Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles in the late 1960s. It's not comprehensive but it's definitely a great snapshot of a great era. Hosted by Jakob Dylan it's a little history lesson of that era interspersed with interviews from some of the greats of that era. Plus vision from a tribute concert held in 2015 that included luminaries such as Beck, Cat Power and Fiona Apple. The era was the birth of rock exploding with folk and even country. The main acts featured are The Beach Boys, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas. We see great interviews with Roger McGuinn, David Cassidy, Stephen Stills, Michelle Phillips and many others. It was a golden age of big hits, glorious melodies and breaking the rules.
