Psychedelia in the UK: "A Technicolor Dream"

Any of you that have been interested by my burblings on "psychedelia"—by which I mean the whole gestation, birth and decay of the flower-power movement—will be interested in a video I streamed from Netflix last night: "A Technicolor Dream." It documents the UK scene: the Albert Hall poetry reading in 1965; the Indica bookstore; IT; The London Free School; UFO; and finally the Fourteen Hour Technicolor Dream on April 30, 1967.

Lots of Beatles-related stuff in here, from McCartney's right-hand Miles, to footage of a very stoned John Lennon. Here's the trailer…

yea I watched this program a few months ago. Fantastic! It so made me miss that era. What a wonderful time to be alive (although the experience was a bit blunted for us hippies living in Texas)
