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 »

Not much of a plot or storyline...or even that much of a documentary. Just a collection of musical numbers that didn't make it into the final cut of the original "Woodstock" documentary. This collection includes unused footage from the "rain chant" sequence, and alternative footage of Janis Joplin's powerful performance of "Work Me, Lord" (parts of which are shown in black and white videotape). Why the editors saw fit to roll the credits over Ritchie Havens singing "Strawberry Fields Forever" and not include the entire song (unless that was all that existed of the performance) goes beyond me.

Still, for those who want to see what didn't make the final cut, this is a must. Note that some of the footage wasn't carefully stored, and there is noticeable wear in some parts.
