Trivia

Eric Clapton missed rehearsals, because he was suffering from heroin withdrawal the week of the show. His performance was described by some critics as "well below par". This was one of Clapton's last appearances for two years, as he battled his addiction.


Goofs

In between 'Blowin' in the Wind' and 'Just Like a Woman', Bob Dylan attaches his capo to the second fret of his guitar. George Harrison then leans over to speak to Leon Russell, but immediately in the next shot, Dylan's guitar is capoed on the fourth fret and George is back in his regular position. (This is most likely due to the deletion of another Dylan song, 'Mr. Tambourine Man', which was played with a capo on the 2nd fret and is included on the film's soundtrack album.)
