Not nearly as good as Monterey Pop, or Woodstock, but, the film is enjoyable, as much for the "event", as the performances. When was the last time you thought of Ian & Sylvia.

When was the last time you thought of Ian & Sylvia. I thought it was a bit too much train/track/scenery footage, and could've used another couple performances. It's very like FESTIVAL-ISLE OF WIGHT. but, not as good. However, I highly recommend this, and am sure it's better then 100% of the stuff that's out, today. Expand

I'm actually old enough to remember the event, and love the music and the period. Yes, it's a nostalgia trip, and yes, some of the music is memorable and there are fun bar-car scenes. But I found the film curiously devoid of energy and very slow-paced. The main redeeming feature - Janis Joplin's performances. She is incendiary, and seems to almost explode off the screen and into the theatre. What a tragic loss her early death was. Expand

I loved this walk into the past. Seeing Janis, Jerry and Pigpen was like spending time with old friends. When it was over all I could do was "CRY BABY."
