This is a great DVD which I play over and over. Watching Eric Clapton barely walking onto the stage, Bob Dylan shows up unexpectedly, and George Harrison is never better! The show is fantastic.

This great concert film ranks up there with Woodstock and Monterey Pop. It was the first real benefit concert and it features some of the best performances of some of the greatest artists of the late 60's and early 70's. This movie is Amazing!!
