If ever a movie begged for expanded DVD...
22 September 2004 | by (Ann Arbor, Michigan) – See all my reviews

Yes, friends and IL' hippies, if ever there was a movie begging for an expanded edition wide-screen DVD release, this is the one. I haven't seen it since '72, granted, and my mental awareness at that time was probably a bit...different...but based on the soundtrack CD set I'd wager this is still a great look at the crazy IL' daze, with some wonderful music and a fun backstage look at the music culture of the time. Yes, it's true, I do have the added motivation that I had the astounding good fortune to attend a couple of these shows (the Dead/New Riders/Rowan Brothers show and the Hot Tuna/Quicksilver show), and would thus particularly get a kick out of seeing the film again. Let's hope "Festival Express" does really well; maybe that will punch somebody's button and wake 'em up to the potential market for this film.
