Hippy Days Revisited DVD
It was a rock'n'roll era that will never be forgotten. This one city, at this one time, captured the hearts and souls of a generation like never before and none since. San Francisco. The late 1960s.
Both discs originally aired as one-hour television shows and were produced and hosted by Gleason in an effort to show that something was really happening here and most viewers didn't know exactly what it was. Go Ride The Music features Jefferson Airplane performing at an intimate indoor venue and Quicksilver Messenger Service performing live in concert in the open air. There are also cameo appearances from David Crosby and Jerry Garcia.
The second disc, West Pole, features a diverse range of acts including Grateful Dead, Steve Miller Band and others, including Ace of Cups, the first all-female electric rock band, in various settings, and takes a more analytical look of the music and the times.
It's almost a cliché in this day and age to recall how a communal sense of revolution and political activism transcended the rock'n'roll aesthetic back in the day. Go Ride The Music provides a living snapshot of the spirit of the 1960's counter-culture, and gives the viewer a first-hand look of the San Francisco movement in its prominent years.
