WOODSTOCK






at Woodstock (Foto: Henry Diltz)


"This is the Incredible String Band at Woodstock. I was a huge fan of their music; I was just as thrilled to shoot them as practically anybody at Woodstock. This was in the performers area out behind the stage; they were sitting there before they went on. All four of ‘em were right there at the table and I went up to them and asked if I could take a picture of ‘em. So I was thrilled to do that -- I totally loved their music." Henry Diltz




Joe Boyd: ... "We were booked to go on on Friday night. We had a perfect slot - we were after Joan Baez, 10.30 in the evening - but they didn't have a proper stage roof, (...) - and it started to rain. At that time the ISB had started very actively with amps, so they had a pick-up on the sitar, pick up on the gimbri etc. and the electric bass. Of course you couldn't play in the rain with all these electric instruments - so we were struck. I said " just go on with your acoustic instruments and play" and they said "we can't, wait 'til it's stopped raining"....

"What happened then was I said, "you don't know what's going to happen - you may never get on stage" but they wanted to wait for the rain to stop and so someone else went on - Melanie - who triumphed in that slot and wrote "Candles in the Rain" about that exact moment!  (...) We ended up going on the following afternoon after Canned Heat in the baking sun. People were ready for something heavy and loud and they came on and just - died!"

Joe Boyd: "It was Joe Boyd's Greatest Mistake. If I could do it all over again I would put them on in the rain. They would have triumphed like Melanie. They would have been in the movie, and everyone who was in the movie had a huge break. Who know what would have happened...." (beGlad Winter 1994)










" ... konnten gleich zu Beginn Jefferson Airplane (US$ 10.000), Creedance Clearwater Revival (US$ 10.000) und Canned Heat (US$ 12.000) für Woodstock gewonnen werden. Früh wurden auch die gerade erst sich formierende Supergruppe Crosby, Stills & Nash für US$ 10.000 unter Vertrag genommen – später gesellte sich dann auch noch Neil Young dazu.

Anfang Juni war dann der Folk-Freitag bis auf Tim Hardin (US$ 2.000) bereits vollständig gebucht: The Incredible String Band (US$ 4.500), Ravi Shankar (US$ 4.500), Ritchie Havens (US$ 6.000), Arlo Guthrie (US$ 5.000) und Joan Baez (US$ 10.000). Donovan und Johnny Cash schlugen das Angebot aus.

... The Grateful Dead (US$ 7.500), Janis Joplin (US$ 15.000) und Santana (US$ 1.000) ..."

The festival featured Joan Baez, Carol Ann Cisneros,
The Comb Sisters, Chris Etheridge, Mimi Farina, Ruth Ann Friedman, James Hendricks, The Incredible String Band, Dave Mason, Joni Mitchell, Dorothy Morrison, Julie Payne, John Sebastian, Sal Valentino. ... and CSN&Y.
(Concert chronology CSN&Y)

"(...) ... filmmakers Baird Bryant and Johanna Demetrakas decided to capture on film the 6th annual concert at Big Sur. Bryant had five cameras to film the event (...) About 12,000 people attended the two day event so this is a vastly scaled back outdoor concert from Woodstock that had happened only one month before. Crosby, Stills, Nash along with Neil Young who had joined CSN in their debut as a foursome at Woodstock are the featured act still working on their play list. Joan Baez who in her late teens lived at the Esalen Institute is a performer here as well as her sister Mimi Farina. Joni Mitchell, John Sebastian and Dorothy Morrison of the Edwin Hawkins Singers are the other nationally known acts on the bill. (...) The Flying Burrito Brothers and The Incredible String Band also performed at the festival but are not in the film."  MDb user comment for the film "Celebration at Bg Sur"
