San Francisco was at the center of an explosion of artistic creation during the mid-to-late '60s. Whether it was art, poetry or music, the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco was the place for like-minded individuals to explore and create. Renowned jazz columnist and television producer Ralph J. Gleason took note of the exploding rock music scene and created several groundbreaking television documentaries spotlighting the music emerging from San Francisco.
A Night at the Family Dog was videotaped in February 1970 at Family Dog on the Great Highway in San Francisco. The show captures the heyday and diversity of the San Francisco sound with live performances from Santana, The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane.
Go Ride the Music was recorded in 1969, focusing on two of the Bay Area's biggest bands at the time - Jefferson Airplane and Quicksilver Messenger Service.
Westpole is an essay on the San Francisco music scene, originally airing in 1969. It features rare performances from local and national favorites, including the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Steve Miller Band, Ace of Cups and Sons of Champlin.
