By Craig Hubert | This isn’t your normal rock ‘n’ roll story. In the early 1970s, James Edward Baker, a veteran of the US Marines and a jujitsu expert, moved out to California and opened the Source restaurant on the Sunset Strip, which quickly attracted a celebrity clientele due to its menu of organic food. Soon after, Baker, a charismatic leader, changed his name to Father Yod. He created his own religion and moved in with a group of young likeminded individuals to a mansion in the Hollywood Hills, a makeshift commune dedicated to utopian living – and psychedelic rock. “The Source Family,” and new documentary about Father Yod and his fellow travelers, will be released on May 1 via Drag City. The film, directed by Maria Demopoulos and Jodi Wille, features interviews with former members of the group and never before seen footage from the period, archived by Isis Aquarian, one of Father Yod’s wives. Did we mention psychedelic rock? The group also had a band that produced blistering jams, and the musicians have reunited for the film. A wild ride, for sure. Watch the trailer below.
