Awareness of THE SOURCE FAMILY, YaHoWa13 and FATHER YOD has been growing since their early 1970s heyday. A spiritual commune dedicated to a wide-ranging blend of eastern and western mysticism, the Source Family were very much a part of the infamous era of tuning in, turning on and dropping out in the late 1960s and '70s. The Source Family's celebrity-hang-out vegetarian restaurant, rock band, utopian commune, and beautiful women made them darlings of Hollywood's Sunset Strip; but their outsider ideals and controversial spiritual leader Father Yod provoked local authorities, leading to their dramatic demise. Still, Yod's spirit lives on-in the hearts and souls of Family members, and in the music that he and the family's various bands made during his life, much of which remains in circulation. Additionally, new finds from the many hours of tapes they left behind are released every year. This incredible true story-told largely through home movies and photographs maintained by archivist ISIS AQUARIAN, one of Father Yod's fourteen wives, features a soundtrack comprised entirely of original Source Family music. The Source Family provides an unparalleled insider's view into the cult/commune phenomenon and wild social experimentation of the '70s; a penetrating and bittersweet examination of the joys of the free love generation and the contradictions that lay beneath the surface of their peaceful, easy feelings. In this, it is a uniquely Californian story as well.
