    In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever <http://www.perfectsoundforever.com>, you'll find (among other things):

    JOHN CASSAVETES - Faces soundtrack revisted by Ben Dyment
    "One of the more interesting aspects of the film is the relative dearth of extraneous music; except for a few poignant moments, the characters are given a greater freedom to fill the screen without the safety net of a constant soundtrack. All the more
    reason then, to wonder how Columbia Masterworks managed to release an official soundtrack album in light of the film's success..."

    DAVID CROSBY- Byrd, dreamer, madman by David Chirko
    "I will detail how the 'madness' of '60's pop/rock music, reflecting corresponding social and political values, through words and tunes, played a role here; where the goals and nature of contemporary groups or "tribes," and their dreams of paradise--
    living by the pleasure principle-- coalesced. I will illustrate all this by analyzing two dulcet pop/rock songs- "Renaissance Fair" and "Tribal Gathering" by the Byrds."
