A feature-length documentary, Laurel Canyon, is set to premiere later this year. The film, according to a press release, “will pull back the curtain on a mythical world and provide an up-close look at the lives of the musicians who inhabited it. Through rare and newly unearthed footage and audio recordings, the documentary will feature an intimate portrait of the artists who created a music revolution of the ’60s and ’70s that would change popular culture.” Alison Ellwood (History of the Eagles) will direct; the film will premiere later this year on EPIX.
Among the artists who will be featured are Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, the Eagles, the Mamas and the Papas, Carole King, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, James Taylor, the Doors, Frank Zappa and more. Says the press release, “The film will be uniquely immersive and experiential, taking us back in time to a place where a rustic canyon in the heart of Los Angeles became a musical petri dish.”
