Note-for-note, harmonies and riffs- every song is played live with nothing pre-recorded and to the standard set by McCartney himself in the early 1970s.

Love Canon doesn't cover the music of the '80s as much as kidnap it and take it on a bluegrass-tinged joyride. Think Rocky IV, Kenny Loggins, Cyndi Lauper, Toto, ZZ Top, Aha and Dire Straits played with banjo, bass, mandolin, dobro, fiddle and high lonesome vocals. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you dance, it'll blind you with science!

Surrounding the great inland sea, called Superior, is some of the most beautiful and exciting wilderness country in North America. The haunting cry of the loon is symbolic of this wilderness; but another sound, familiar to fewer people, is the territorial drumming of the Ruffed Grouse. Its spectacular courtship display is but one of the stories included in this film. The viewer will also enjoy intimate visits with eagles, otters, loons, Canada Jays, warblers, wolves, the elusive Fisher, and a family of bears.
