The comparatively small but — in musical terms — hugely important geographical area called Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles is profiled in the documentary, “Echo in the Canyon.”
Directed by Andrew Slater, the film details how the Byrds, the Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and the Mamas and the Papas birthed the still influential “California sound” there in the mid-1960s.
The film features contributions from Brian Wilson, Michelle Phillips, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Stephen Stills, Roger McGuinn, Graham Nash, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, and the late Tom Petty in his final on-camera interview.
“Echo in the Canyon” opens in Los Angeles on May 24 and New York City on May 31.
