OK,
I see what you mean.
First the spoken words of Grace, than a few seconds of "Other side"
and than
- Saturday on the woodstock directors cut
- Somebody to love on the Woodstock diaries.
D´acord.

But now:
The few seconds of "Other side" are great. Where do I found this version complete?

Hey guys, didn't anyone get Take Me To A Circus Tent??? According to Craig the Woodstock set panned out like this:
    Stage Intro > Tune-Up>
    Grace Talks>
    The Other Side Of This Life
    Plastic Fantastic Lover
    Volunteers
    Tune-Up> Won't You Try/Saturday Afternoon
    Tune-Up>Grace Talks>Eskimo Blue Day
    Grace Thanks crowd>Tune-up
    Uncle Sam Blues
    Sombody To Love

According to Craing there is no full recording of "The Other Side Of This Life", which is the song in question.

All that stuff from Grace and "Volunteers" is how it's heard on the original Woodstock album(s). But they all ocurred at different times and was all cut and spliced together.

As Dave correctly quotes from Craig's book, the Airplane's opening song was actually "The Other Side of This Life," not Volunteers.

The (primarily) solo bass intro (off of the notes G and F) was the common way to open the song at that time and yes it is similar to the version at Altamont.

Speaking of JA at Woodstock.

Postby miketouhy on Thu Oct 18, 2007 8:22 pm

I saw the moive one when it aired on MTV in 1989 durring its 20th aniversary and didn't see any JA footage along with not seeing various of others artists who were there.

I know CCR for whatever reasons wouldn't give their consent to use their footage for the film or fro the alBum so what's the story on JA?

I've heard it and I think it's the best version.

I found it on Lime Wire back in 2003-2004 ...I'm not sure if I still have the cd I put it on though : (

No CCR footage, or performances by Grateful Dead, or Janis Joplin or MANY other groups from Woodstock exists anywhere that I know of, and JA was NOT in the original theatrical movie either.

BUTT a few years ago, a "Director's Cut" was issued that does contain one or two JA songs... Pretty cool stuff...


GRACE: "OK... You have heard all the heavy groups, now it is time for Morning Maniac Music"...

Then they proceeded to rip some ear-drums and eye-balls...

... Especially if you can imagine that they played at sunrise Saturday a.m. after still tripping from Friday night...

Beautiful.

Janis is on the directors cut as well, and there is footage of the Dead's show out there on the various file-sharing sites. I've got about 20 minutes worth of the Dead. It's poor quality because the lights were out while they were playing. Songs include Mama Tried, St. Stephen, and Love Light.
