Canada, 2003, 90 min, color

The last great rockumentary of an era, with unique recordings of Janis Joplin, the Band, the Grateful Dead, et al. This material, shot in cinéma-vérité style, celebrating musicians, psychedelia and spontaneous jam sessions was shelved for thirty years for legal reasons. Its Woodstock on wheels. Lets roll!

In the summer of 1970, a motley collection of musicians travelled by train through Canada. The most unusual recordings, however, were made on board the train: partying musicians, psychedelics and spontaneous jam sessions.
