Seminal Guest & Co. mockumentary of Woodstock, burnt out musicians, and the drug sub-culture.
Yes the print is terrible, the audio worse. Yes it's obviously not the studio session the album came from. It's amateurish, silly at first glance, and almost obnoxious. That's the first 10 seconds. It's dark. Daaark. Vampiric, hyper-stoned lashing out at all of the hippie culture and icons. Now I know why those guys are so famous. It's the most straight-faced, vicious satire, delivered in dead-pan wasted modality. From the 'surgeons on acid' on, my jaw was on the floor... The music, sloppy and cruelly sycophantic, is awesome, for want of a better term. Belushi's "Bottom Of The Barrel?" Wow.
"Just dig yourself." "Where you're comin' from, man, no one wants to be!"
