Goofs

The band is shown playing a Love-in in 1967. The PA system is a modern style that didn't exist at the time. Wedge monitor speakers were virtually non-existent. The Shure SM-58 microphone hadn't been introduced yet, though similar Shure microphones were in common usage. Marshall amplifiers were quite rare, expensive and hard to get. A band like Sweetwater would have used Fender, Vox or Standell amps. The microphones used at Woodstock were Shure SM 56 models, not the SM 58 models used in the film. See more »

A 'Behind the Music' Movie
18 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

I just finished watching this TV movie & couldn't believe that people hadn't already began to comment about it. I loved it, personally. Amy Jo Johnson shows she's more than Julie (of "Felicity"), giving a wonderful performance. I have to admit, the working in of the reporter's storyline seemed a little inappropriate. They barely touched it, but tried to make it seem like a big thing. All in all, this was really good, I thought.
