I will probably go with this, too. I can't wait to see the additional performances for the Grateful Dead. I'm assuming the clips of Johnny Winter and The Band are included as well.

I'm glad that the Grateful Dead is finally getting onto the Woodstock bandwagon! Their set has been omitted from EVERY Woodstock album and video compilation since the distant days of the Age of Aquarius!!! Of course it has been easy to come by due to its relative popularity in trader's circles.

Quite a lot of other footage has been circulated for years so I wonder how rare the extras are going to be.

Does this new DVD contain the Lost Woodstock tapes? PBS ran it one week and there is some d@mn good music that got left out of the original movie. Speaking of the original, we just watched it last week. Sure brings back what memories I have from that period.

I don't think so. However there was a VHS release in the 90s called THE LOST PERFORMANCES which you might find on Ebay.

Also on Ebay you can find the three DVD set WOODSTOCK DIARY which also contains some nice footage.

One of the reasons the Dead refused to give permission to have this released is that they felt it was one of their worst performances ever, as did The Who.

All the info you need....and then some.

Think i gonna pick this up as well.


1969 was a year unlike any other. Man first set foot on the moon. The New York Mets won the World Series against all odds. And for three days in the rural town of Bethel, New York, half a million people experienced the single most defining moment of their generation; a concert unprecedented in scope and influence, a coming together of people from all walks of life with a single common goal: Peace and music. They called it Woodstock. One year later, a landmark Oscar?-winning documentary captured the essence of the music, the electricity of the performances, and the experience of those who lived it. Newly remastered, the film features legendary performances by 17 best selling artists.

Celebrating the Greatest Rock Concert in History! On Blu-ray and DVD June 9 from Warner Home Video…

Remastered 4-hour Director’s Cut and over 3 hours of extras (includes newly discovered performances), and these collectibles:
• LUCITE display with images from the festival
• 60-Page Commemorative LIFE MAGAZINE Reprint
• Iron-on WOODSTOCK PATCH
• Festival Memorabilia including Reproductions of HANDWRITTEN NOTES and a Three-Day Ticket
Numbered, Limited-Edition Sets for Enhanced Collectibility

“Few documentaries have captured a time and place more completely, poignantly, and … entertainingly.”
–Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“Not just a great slice-of-time documentary but the ultimate rock concert movie.”
–Chris Willman, Los Angeles Times

Burbank, CA – the four-hour Director’s Cut of the 1970 Oscar®-winning documentary about the landmark music event that featured some of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll performers in history – will be released June 9 in a spectacular new limited, numbered Blu-ray and DVD Ultimate Collector’s Edition (UCE). With two extra hours of rare performance footage – some of it newly-discovered, some only seen in part and some never seen at all – the UCE is destined to make its own history. Details of the new releases will be featured at the South by Southwest Music + Film Festival where Warner Home Video will offer festival goers a first look at the new high definition picture and sound on March 21.

Today, four decades later, Woodstock still resonates deeply with those that attended and those that wished they had. Director Michael Wadleigh notes, “Based on the vast e-mails and calls I’ve received, many from young people, it’s very evident that people still relate so much to the film and view the ’60s as an age when anything and everything was possible, mostly good. Many hope for a new Woodstock generation since what people loved back then was spontaneity, originality, innocence and honesty - even in superstars; that’s why Woodstock, with its open and natural philosophy, has become timeless.”

The two extra hours of rare performance footage features 18 new performances as never before seen from 13 groups, including Joan Baez, Country Joe McDonald, Santana, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, Canned Heat, Joe Cocker and five (Paul Butterfield, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Grateful Dead, Johnny Winter and Mountain) who played at Woodstock but never appeared in any film version.

A third hour of bonus material also on the UCE includes a featurette gallery showcasing interviews with Martin Scorsese, producer Michael Lang, director Michael Wadleigh, Hugh Hefner, Eddie Kramer (the concert’s original chief on-site engineer and producer-engineer for Jimi Hendrix) and others who chronicle the making of the festival and the film. Included are such segments as 3 Days in a Truck, No Rain! No Rain! and Living Up To Idealism. Additionally, exclusive to Blu-ray a Customize Your Own Woodstock Playlist from the 18 bonus performances and other special features like Media Center, My WB Commentary and Live Community Screening.

The WOODSTOCK UCE will be packaged in a unique giftbox, numbered as part of a limited run with an array of collectibles that include a 60+ page reprint of a Life magazine commemorative issue, a lucite lenticular display of vintage festival photos, festival memorabilia and an iron-on patch with the classic dove and guitar Woodstock emblem.

Jeff Baker, WHV’s Executive VP and General Manager, Theatrical Catalog, stated, “As I reviewed Woodstock interviews and some of the newly discovered concert footage, it struck me how historically relevant this project has become to all of us who have been privileged to be a part of it. The new ‘content’ we have created, almost 40 years later, and the live performances we’ve restored in high definition, some in extended cuts, will live on as studio assets forever, and as a testimony to a time and a set of circumstances which will never again repeat themselves.”

Woodstock 3 Days of Peace & Music was newly remastered from original elements and scanned at 2K with an audio 5.1 mix. Eddie Kramer, Woodstock sound engineer, assisted with the 5.1 audio mix of recently found additional footage. The Ultimate Collector’s Edition will be available in Blu-ray™ Hi-Def as well as DVD. Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music will also be available on DVD as a Two-Disc Special Edition.

WOODSTOCK (From Festival to Feature highlights) –
• The Camera: The Éclair NPR was the best camera around in 1969; Michael Wadleigh talks about why the Éclair was the right camera for this film.

• 365,000 Feet of Film: The stories of how Dale Bell and his crew begged, borrowed and stole just enough film to document the festival.

• Shooting Stage: Those up-close shots of performers didn’t just happen by magic; see how Wadleigh and his cameramen got those up close and personal shots of the performers.

• The Line Up: The Who, Sha Na Na, Santana, Ten Years After, Jefferson Airplane and many more; how did all these bands get on the roster for the festival of a life time?

• Holding the Negative Hostage: What does a filmmaker do when Technicolor is sending a copy of your negative to the studio without your permission? Well, you lock up the film and hire a lawyer.

• Announcements: “Don’t take the brown acid” or maybe it was green. We’ll hear about all the strange and informative announcements heard during those three days of peace, love and enlightenment.

• Suits VS. Longhairs: The clash between the hippie filmmakers and the Warner executives who didn’t understand what this film meant.

• Documenting History: Find out from Michael Wadleigh and Dale Bell, along with filmmakers, where the idea of capturing this event on film came from.

• Pre-Production: We’ll find out how this production got off the ground and meet the members of the crew that made it happen.

• Production: How many cameras were used? How much film did they go through? Did anyone sleep? All these questions and more will be answered here as we explore how Woodstock was captured on film.
