"Laurel Canyon" is celebratory and intimate, and the constant barrage of photos and footage does its trick.

Laurel Canyon is a nearly four-hour exercise in bliss, throwing us back to a fleeting time when musical warmth and formal excellence went hand in hand and made the whole world want to go "California Dreamin'."

One of the joys in the two-part, Epix documentary series is hearing the stories about the music movement that sprang from the canyon in the 1960s and the 1970s - even if we've heard some of these stories before.

[Director Alison Ellwood] stitched together a consistently stimulating collection of previously unseen film clips, home movies and television appearances... for a sumptuous visual feast, even for people who think they've seen it all already.

[Director Alison] Ellwood serves up a sun-dappled, quarantine dream of a place whose significance to the era's music scene can't be overstated.

Laurel Canyon is a warm remembrance of things past for anybody who was part of the 1960s, and an instructive text about why we loved it so much for anybody who wasn't. It's history, it's gossip, it's a love letter, and you can dance to it.

Laurel Canyon: A Place in Time may offer nostalgia for a different time in America but the music remains awesome.

Jun 1, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Whether you're a huge fan of the music or just someone who likes a few Eagles songs, LAUREL CANYON: A PLACE IN TIME is absolutely worth a watch.

If you're only a casual listener, then the totally solid Laurel Canyon might not make it to the top of your playlist.

May 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Make no mistake, while it doesn't boast any earth-shattering revelations that aficionados of the era are not already familiar with, there is still so much that's worthwhile about Laurel Canyon.

    It was great seeing the home movies and interviews of the rock stars during that era and the recent interviews and narration now.

    Es un buen tributo a ese crisol de creación que se formó en ese barrio alejado del centro de Los Angeles. Muchas figuras del arte confluyeron allí en medio de una orgía de sexo, drogas y rock and roll, los finales de los 60 y principios de los 70 en todo su esplendor.

    Laurel Canyon was euphoria for rock stars… I love the show, all nostalgic footage and photos are amazing. Soundtrack brings back memories of the Magic of music! If you're from that era you will absolutely love this show, actually I'm re-watching it right now!
