Comment of the Moment: Documentary Film of CSNY Freedom of Speech Tour
A Comment of the Moment on Documentary Film of CSNY Freedom of Speech Tour. Simpson said...
"I don't know about the rest of you guys...but I'm rather disappointed in learning that the CSNY movie will be a documentary and not a straight concert film...which I had been hoping for.
I know this was a very controversial tour and all...but the very first official movie with all four members in it is going to be a documentary?
I do have to admit that I am political...and on the Republican side...but I still have both versions of Young's 'Living With War' album and saw the guys at their last stop of the '06 tour in Burgettstown.
Here's what I have to say. Each concert was about 3 1/2 hours long. I loved every single song they played at my concert. I was hoping to get just a straight concert film with concert footage of most of the songs they played.
With a documentary we're gonna get less concert footage for more interviews and opinionated stuff which I probably won't want to watch after the first or second viewings. I understand the meaning of this tour and all...but I was mainly hoping to get a concert film.
I honestly don't care about the documentary aspect of it...that's fine with me...but a documentary means less concert footage."
Hopefully, a DVD release will have a full concert recording.
