All You Need Is Love Vol 14 - All Along The Watchtower: Sour Rock (DVD)
Release Date: 12/08/09
Volume 14 in the acclaimed series All You Need Is Love concentrates on the end of the '60s.
In this episode we turn our attention to the end of the sixties; a time when there was dissent and war in the world and the chaos was reflected in the music with bands splitting up and moving on. The sixties began, according to Eric Burdon as 'a party'. 'The aim of all of us, Hendrix, The Who, The Stones', Burdon goes on, 'was to ball every chick in sight'. Unfortunately, the party went sour. After the death of Epstein, the Beatles quarreled and split up. Jagger was arrested. Drugs became fashionable. The swinging sixties tore itself apart in an orgy of self-congratulation and self-indulgence. Told through interviews with many of the main players of the time such as Eric Burdon, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, John Lennon and Paul McCartney this episode shows the other side of the carefree sixties.
