At The Hollywood Festival North West England 1970

As John Peel so rightly says Hollywood Festival and the arrival of the Grateful Dead for their first performance in the UK was a defining moment. The late sixties / early seventies counter culture and music scene in the UK had always aspired to West Coast USA bands and their ideology of large outdoor concerts. North West England with a strong counter culture, arts and music scene would go on after Hollywood Festival in subsequent years to see festival events and large outdoor rock concerts no longer just held in the south of England.

In the same spirit as the Grateful Dead and crowd gathering at Hollywood in1970 the North West would go on to stage Bickershaw Festival 1972 (Grateful Dead again) , Deeply Vale Festivals 1976-1979, Rivington Pike Free Festival 1976 and 1977, the Northern Carnival Against the Nazis, Alexandra Park Manchester 1978, and the Northern Carnival Against Cruise Missiles, Alexandra Park Manchester 1981. Some archive film exists of these other great music/counter culture events and if they haven't been covered yet by DVD they may well be soon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ripoff! May 23, 2010
By baxlap
The DVD consists of unwatchable, out-of-focus home movie quality footage that doesn't match the corresponding audio. For example, the footage shows Pigpen singing during the verses of Casey Jones, which Garcia sang. The CD is a chopped up, out-of-seqence soundboard recording with several midsong cuts. Surely there must be better documents of the Dead in 1970. Save your money!

The fact someone managed to salvage footage of the Grateful Dead's first performance in the UK deserves a pat on the back for the company issuing this DVD and CD set. Out of synch it might be but then the film crew and sound crew were spiked with acid. You get 17 tracks on the audio cd as well as the 5 tracks of Grateful Dead on the DVD and some great images in the DVD booklet. I collect all films and recording to do with 60s and 70s counter culture and I think it is great that this item has been released. Definitely buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars I attended this festival in 1970 January 30, 2014
And still have vivid memories of the 2 days spent there. I expected much more from this product and have to say I'm disappointed in the extreme. It's a grade z shambles and those making it should have spent the production costs on a Mars bar instead.
