great supplement to the original Woodstock movie
30 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Alongside 'Woodstock' itself, this film presents further performances and alternate cuts (rehearsals?) from the three days of the legendary 1968 festival.

From Friday, we have Richie Havens, Country Joe MacDonald, John Sebastian, Incredible String Band (but not much of them!), Bert Sommers (with the lilting 'Jennifer', a lovely song), Tim Hardin, Ravi Shankar, Arlo Guthrie (clearly stoned and rather embarrassing), and Joan Baez.

From Saturday, there's Quill (dull), Santana, Canned Heat (not enough of them considering their set on the original film was so cropped), Mountain, Sly and the Family Stone, Janis Joplin (great performance of 'Try'), The Who (their best stuff was on the original film), and Jefferson Airplane (the ubiquitous 'White Rabbit').

From Sunday, the artists presented are Joe Cocker, Country Joe and the Fish, Ten Years After (boring), The Band, Johnny Winter (forgettable), Crosby Stills and Nash (very good), Paul Butterfield, Sha Na Na (fun), and Jimi Hendrix (again better served on the original film).

More a companion piece than something you would view in isolation, there are three hours, largely of music, but some of it comment, here for you to enjoy, and I am glad to see it available again.
