Review: Stamping Ground (1971)

Image credit:
This absorbing documentary about the 1970 Kralingen Music Festival, Rotterdam, really does have the funk, kicking off with Santana and featuring performances by Canned Heat, Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds, Soft Machine, Pink Floyd and many more.
It's completely immersive, with close-ups of the artistes and psychedelic shots, as well as lots of candid festival crowd action. The music does the talking, although there are a couple of memorable interviews - Grace Slick's comments on war ring very true today.
By the end of it, you'll be dancing around your living room or at least tapping your toes along to Jingo by Santana.
