Overview

As the cultural tumult of the late 1960s gave way to the malaise of the early 1970s, the tone of American popular music began to change, and the rabble-rousing sound of the psychedelic era evolved into a more personal and contemplative approach.

Overview

As the cultural tumult of the late 1960s gave way to the malaise of the early 1970s, the tone of American popular music began to change, and the rabble-rousing sound of the psychedelic era evolved into a more personal and contemplative approach. Two of the artists who defined this change were Carole King, who went from writing pop hits for The Shirelles, Little Eva and The Monkees to stepping out as a solo artist and releasing the top-selling Tapestry, and James Taylor, who after enjoying minor success with the band The Flying Machine became a superstar on the strength of songs like "Fire and Rain" and "You've Got A Friend." The documentary Troubadours examines the rise of the singer/songwriter scene in the 1970s, focusing on King and Taylor as well as artists such as Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Elton John and Kris Kristofferson, and also profiling Doug Weston, whose Los Angeles nightclub The Troubadour became a launching pad for many major artists. Troubadours was an official selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
