This documentary is great (legal) way to participate in the tripped out lives of some of the iconic bands of the 60s and 70s. The live shows are great but what really lights the movie up are the improved jam sessions on the train as it traveled from venue to venue. It's also neat to see one group of hippies (the bands) fighting against another group (the people that wanted into the concert free of charge) and how they resolved the issue--additional free concerts! Even the 'made' bands today that are supposedly in it for the music wouldn't go to such lengths!
