I found this while reading a bio about Tandyn Almer on Wikipedia (he wrote the hit "Along Comes Mary", which launched The Association to fame). It's titled Inside Pop: The Rock Revolution, a 1967 CBS TV News feature presented by Leonard Bernstein. Featuring Frank Zappa, Tandyn Almer, Graham Nash, Roger McGuinn, and Brian Wilson.

Thanks for posting, McMick, I enjoyed that!

For anyone who chooses to watch, it should be mentioned that there are no musical examples from FZ, and his contribution is limited to a few short but excellent quotes throughout, the best, imo, being at around the 48 minute mark. I was hoping to see a conversation between Bernstein and Zappa, but alas...

I'm a huge Leonard Bernstein fan (he was a true musical genius, imo), so I enjoyed seeing him analyze those pop songs, and seeing Brian Wilson perform Surf's Up near the end was phenomenal.

Also enjoyed seeing a teenage Janis Ian play Society's Child.

Some unintentionally funny and dated stuff, and also some interesting and still relevant commentary on state of the music business as well as the acceptance of those who are "different".

Graham Nash really believed they could change the world.
