They ran out of film during TYA's performance at Woodstock, that's why they blended 3 images into 1 during the final cut from the 35 mm film.,Recording administered by: WMG.
I never really tried to play fast. It kind of developed from the adrenalin rush of the hundreds of gigs I did long before Woodstock. They called me "Captain Speedfingers" and such, but I didn't take it seriously. There were many guitarists faster than me -- Django Reinhardt, Barney Kessel, John McLaughlin and Joe Pass to name a few.
The solo in the movie sounds pretty rough to me these days, but it had the energy, and that was what Ten Years After were all about at the time. However, I often wonder what would have happened if they had used "I Can't Keep From Crying, Sometimes" in the movie instead of "I'm Going Home."
