Trivia

Contains leftover footage that was not used in the original film Woodstock (1970). One of the performances consists of unused footage of Janis Joplin singing "Work Me, Lord". While the song does appear in Woodstock (1970), the footage used in this collection is of shots (some using a primitive video camera) that were not used in the documentary. See more »

Fantastic and a must see if you like the film!

I finally got my hands on this out of print gem. I prefer this full screen version as it seems like you see a lot more during the 68 min. What's great is the cutaway footage of the crowd (most are not in the movie) and a lot of nudie shots during Canned Heat Going Up The Country. Melanie really belts out Birthday of the Sun. Janis Joplin Work Me Lord is in color and they added different angle camera shots in B&W. The only footage that looks like it's the same as Woodstock Diary is Arlo Guthrie, Tim Hardin, Blood, Sweat and Tears. The Paul Butterfield Drifting Blues footage is very dark and on Diary it's looks good. The audio is stereo and sounds great. I can rec this to DVD but why Warner Bros never released it on DVD is beyond me.
