    Subject: Where are the heads?
    Date: Jan 17, 2005
    Sender: UptownPrevious | Next

    I was born into a musical family and The Grateful Dead was the house band! I was raised on the sounds of The Dead along with many of the greats in this here gem of a film. For the fans of the bands here this is even more of a gem because this footage was lost until just a few years ago. I wouldn't call this the "Canadian Woodstock" as it's been tagged but it is a unique look at some of the best bands from the "60's era" in their prime. Sadly on a few of those are still with us.Janis Joplin, shown here at her most natural, died just a few months after the train ride. Jerry Garcia died in 1995 and in 1970 he was still a young, fairly thin and jovial Jerry. 1970 was still considered and "innocent" period in the Dead's history, if you want to call it that, as heroin and hard drugs were still years away from the mix. But besides the Dead the standout performances are by Janis and Big Brother, The Band, and Buddy Guy. I found it a slight bit humorous that rapepr Shawnna is Guy's daughter...but at least she is not doing POP! I love hop myself just not the particualr kind that she does! Mostly this a film for fans of the bands and music appreciators, rock n roll is just not made like this anymore!
