Festival Express review Product Description



Festival Express movie was released Sep 27, 2005 by the Warner Home Video studio. Festival Express is a rousing record of a little-known, but monumental, moment in rock n' roll history, starring such music legends as Janis Joplin, The Band, and the Grateful Dead. Set in 1970, Festival Express was a multi-band, multi-day extravaganza that captured the spirit and imagination of a generation and a nation. Festival Express DVD for sale What made it unique was that it was portable; for five days, the bands and performers lived, slept, rehearsed and did countless unmentionable things aboard a customized train that traveled from Toronto, to Calgary, to Winnipeg, with each stop culminating in a mega-concert.   ...See Full Description

A near perfect time capsule of a time to be cherised
Festival Express film I was pleasantly surprised how well this DVD was done. Festival Express review After seeing the movie in theatres earlier this year, it was a pleasure to be able to watch this at home. Festival Express DVD for sale The transfer to digital from the original film was done very well, it doesn't look quite as granular now as it did at the cinema. Of course, the film itself is very well done and is a must for any rock enthusiast (even better if you are a fan of the Band, Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead). Since so little footage is available of these bands around the same time, especially the Dead, it is a treat to see these groups in their prime. The performances for the most part are great, as is the footage on the train itself, although i suppose there could be more interview segments. The bonus footage available for the first time on the DVD is great too. The highlight for me is the two bonus Grateful Dead songs, both featuring the much-missed Pigpen on lead vocals. Why these didn't make the movie is beyond me - the 'Easy Wind' is quite spectacular. Which isn't to say the rest of the bonus footage isn't great as well. It is, and this is one historial time capsule that is worth taking the time to investigate.

ĦĦĦTHE COOLEST RIDE BY FAR!!!!
Festival Express movie This is probably one of the best visual documents of the festival era, Imagine!!! The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Buddy Guy, The Band, and a lot more musicians in a train having jams all the time and eventually stopping to play a concert,,,great music,,,I love Janis Joplin, Cry Baby, she is sweeter than honey,in Grateful Dead "New Speedway Boogie" you can see how far was Garcia from our dimension, you can see his eyes looking further in space. Festival Express video The Jams in the train are incredible,there is one with Rick Danko from the Band,Janis,Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir. Its like being there, actually for the Garcia fans that never got to see it, this is it, you will see how he flirt with Janis while they play. Buddy Guy perfomance is hot, it burns. To See Levon Helm from The Band singing the Weight and Richard Manuel singing I Shall be released is incredible. Pigpen at his best doing "Easy Wind",he died 2 years later,,here he is full of power ... I think Its the coolest ride I have ever saw....

A great trip back through time
You know, I could watch Janis Joplin all night long. I could listen to that B3 in the Band all night long. I only wish the movie was longer! Pretty chincy on the second disc, but that wasn't why I bought it. Highly recommend to all current and ex-hippies of the era.

excellent footage of excellent moments
This video contains some absolutely classic renditions of favorites like New Speedway Boogie (complete with Nobody's Fault jam), as well as intimate footage of the bands just hanging out and jamming on the train. A must have for any music video collection.

Festival Express is a rousing record of a little-known, but monumental, moment in rock n' roll history, starring such music legends as Janis Joplin, The Band, and the Grateful Dead. Set in 1970, Festival Express was a multi-band, multi-day extravaganza that captured the spirit and imagination of a generation and a nation. What made it unique was that it was portable; for five days, the bands and performers lived, slept, rehearsed and did countless unmentionable things aboard a customized train that traveled from Toronto, to Calgary, to Winnipeg, with each stop culminating in a mega-concert. The entire experience, both off-stage and on, was filmed but the extensive footage remained locked away -- until now. A momentous achievement in rock film archeology, Festival Express combines this long-lost material with contemporary interviews nearly 35 years after it was first filmed. Source: Warner Home Video
