Episodes

1. Episode 1
Laurel Canyon was a rural oasis that brought out the talents of young musicians. They formed bands together, broke up those bands, and formed new ones. They perfected their music at local clubs and pretty soon the world took notice.

2. Episode 2
With hard drugs, bigger paychecks, and the Manson murders, the once neighborly music scene began to shift. In spite of it all, a new wave of troubadours came in and continued to captivate those beyond their rustic home.
