Mama tried and lovelight were not included since officially released. This is a very short and “novelty” project.

==== Donor Rap ====
This page 100% depends on the generosity of others to continue the work that is being done here to restore and remaster all existing video sources (we even do new transfers on a lot of stuff and uncirculated stuff these days). The postproduction work takes a lot of time, a lot of specialized equipment and software, eats up a ton of money in overhead, continuously increasing storage demands, and a high-speed fiber connection is on the way.

For full disclosure, if you see commercials on this page, this page is NOT MONETIZED in any way. Any commercial you see is either placed there by copyright owners (which they have every right to do) or by Youtube. We don’t want people to have to see commercials any more than they want to see them. On the other hand, we are lucky enough be able to post all of these videos without being crushed off of Youtube from copyright violations. (Which also took a lot of effort to make happen)
With that said, this page would have ceased to exist in December 2020 if it were not for the massive outpouring of people who stepped up and offered to help when i put up the notice that I would no longer be able to maintain this page because of the time and the financial burden. If you are able, consider making a one-time donation or joining the patreon if you find this page to be something of value — every dollar genuinely helps a ton. We do not want anyone to feel any sense of obligation. We are like everyone else and want to keep the music alive, at the highest quality possible.
~Thank you~

– with Ken Babbs rapping at the start*
– This is an upgrade, there is one less analogue generation in the transfer
– There were repeated sections which have been removed.
– A couple of small patches of hum have been attenuated.
– I also removed several loud high pitched feedback squeals to save your ears.
– “Love Light” has a cut around 24:11
Thanks to Rich and Charlie

Mix of Pro-shot video and graphics

Saint Stephen ~
Mama Tried ~
High Time false start Stage Banter. Technical Difficulties (1)
Dark Star ~ (2)
High Time
Turn On Your Lovelight (3) (missing)

The Main Menu is a short clip of Jerry playing backstage with Rosalie Sorrels, in the field behind the main stage, early Friday evening, 8/15/69. It is suggested in comments that I’ve read that Dave Bromburg is one of the other musicians.

(1) This has been shortend to just over 1 minute so that you are not subjected to 10 minutes of graphics without Jerry playing. The complete audio of this is included as the audio used for the Song Menu

(2) Unfortunately, the bulk of this Dark Star is missing. The first 13 minutes are BHP graphics afterwhich there are 5 black and white clips that make up about 5 minutes of 7 minutes remaining.

(3) Not included as this is an official release as part of the Woodstock 40th Anniversary Box Set that is well worth having.
