Top Customer Reviews
filmed for CALIFORNIA CLASSIC ROCK are competent recapitulations
of the songs that made Canned Heat, Eric Burdon,The Standells,
The Chambers Brothers, Peter Noone and others famous during the
'60's. Although the concert that is the focal point of the dvd
took place in the summer of 1986, it's easy to imagine that it
would have been fun to be there.
For the most part, CALIFORNIA CLASSIC ROCK was filmed, fduring
daylight hours and this does take away some of the mystique
of seeing and hearing familiar music played under the cloak of
darkness, under an open sky.
Seeming to enjoy itself (or liking the fact of being on camera)
the audience is full of middle-aged people still up for some fun
and a party atmosphere in an outdoor setting. The close-up
camera work is well suited to bringing the spirit of this kind of
eventto the viewer.
ERic Burdon performs edgy versions of the Animals hits Don't Let Me
Be Misunderstood and Don't Bring Me Down (one of his personal in-
concert favourites) and Canned Heat, with Going Up The Country
and On The Road Again demonstrate that later line-ups of once
well-known bands can deliver authentic and appealing renditions
of these songs.
Buffalo Springfield Revisited does Mr. Soul and For What It's
Worth--there are some welcome opportunities to catch glimpses of the
original Springfield's rhythm section of Dewey Martin and
the animated Bruce Palmer. For some odd reason, The Standells'
strong reading of Dirty Water is punctuated by the presence of a bikini-
clad young woman in spangly white boots, joining on stage and gyrating
to the music.Read more ›
