The whole crowd is square, cluelessly so, Even the room is, unless some Brady Bunch bachelor pad full of swinging squares happens to be your thing. then I suppose it wouldn't bug you. Just consider that these performances are from 1969-'72. Half the bands probably played the Fillmore in the same week, so playing this room was, for most, an alien venture. I like watching the reaction of the beautiful people, particularly interesting when they try to make sense of the scuzzier bands. I haven't watched the whole thing, but it's worth skipping around. The first Canned Heat song, "Turpentine Howl" is pretty cool (at 27:50). The guitar solos are both sufficiently dirty, the tone and sloppiness of the second solo was enough to watch a second time. You'll want to stick around for Hefner interviewing Bob "Bear" Hite about his 78 collection, and, of course, Hefner's gem "You guys are really throwing out a wild sound". But do skip around for some of the whitest freak out dancing you're likely to see. Plus, where else are you going to see a well dressed asshole curled up in front of a speaker cabinet sucking his thumb? This is two worlds colliding. It's not pretty, but it is funny,
