What a treat. As a "child of the '60's" my college years had the background music of folk and rock and roll. To see a documentary of the "singer - songwriter" as they became acclaimed performers took me back 50+ years. I loved / love Carole King, Eagles ( not "the" Eagles as pointed out in the film ), James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson, Bob Dylan and more. Marvelous documentary for me. Highly recommend to all ages who are fans of the 1960's folk / rock. The accompanying CD is also great!! Kristi & Abby Tabby
