Hard to find in the US, but well worth it!
15 September 1999 | by Casey-52See all my reviews

I have seen only a good portion of this film, but can judge right now (and by the CD it is based on) that the performances are pure gold! Janis Joplin and Joe Cocker are the true highlights of the film, with Mountain and Johnny Winter a close second. This film contains the filmed performances of the songs from that CD, I have only seen those, but judging by the running time, there must be extra long-lost footage!!! The performers I saw were: Joe Cocker, The Band, Johnny Winter, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Janis Joplin, Richie Havens, The Jefferson Airplane, Tim Hardin, Mountain, Sly and the Family Stone, and Jimi Hendrix. The worst were Tim Hardin, Richie Havens, and Jefferson Airplane, their sets being either boring or full of flaws. As said before, Joe Cocker, Janis Joplin, Mountain, and Johnny Winter steal the show. The Jimi Hendrix song isn't his best, check out the JIMI HENDRIX: WOODSTOCK video instead. Look around for this, it is a wonderful addition to the original film and will look great beside your Woodstock Director's Cut!
