This documentary Inside Pop – The Rock Revolution (a CBS News special) is legendary in Beach Boys circles for featuring Smile era footage of Brian Wilson singing ‘Surf’s Up’ alone at a grand piano.

I’d wanted to see the full programme for ages, but it was impossible to track down, and rumoured to be lost apart from snippets. It’s now up on youtube in 6 parts.

Features music by The Left Banke, Janis Ian, Hermans Hermits, and some great interviews with hip young things.

  1. There are some amazing quotes in this, and some very groovy kids. nnIt’s really funny seeing something like this now, Bernstein is sort of explaining “the youth” to his own generation, as if they (and their music and ideals) are from outer space.
