Product Description

Completely revamped version of the old Bickershaw dvd. There is now a lot of new archive film, archive stills and archive audio making this new version over four hours long rather than one and a half. The original sections from the first dvd have been completely re edited and appended- the only interview that stays from the first dvd is the Jerry Garcia one in the Grateful Dead section. There is film of artists on this volume two that weren't on the first volume. There were only 2 great multi-day greenfield music festivals with camping in North West England in the 70 s, Bickershaw and Deeply Vale. Bickershaw, held on a fairly wet May weekend in 1972 was around £2.25 in advance for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Around 40,000 people attended and the festival inspired many audience members to pursue careers in the music industry Chapter listing : Chapter 1 The Festival, Harry the count talks pre festival about time & money invested -campers arrive pitch tents make fire wash & dry clothes. Jeremy Beadle & friends talk about problems and resolutions. Stage is erected. Promoter & stage manager talk about managing the festival + much more. Chapter 2 Donovan. 3 Country Joe. 4 Incredible string band. 5 Captain Beefheart. 6 The Kinks. 7 Captain Beyond. 8 Cheech & Chong. 9 Grateful Dead. 10 New riders of the purple sage. 11 Family. 12 Flamin Groovies. 13 High Divers. 14 Haydock Brass Band. 15 After The Festival. Harry the count recollects moments. Jeremy Beadle talks with festival goers + much more. If you were amongst the 40,000 hedonists who went to this great festival you will probably see you or your friends in this amazing raggle taggle collection of film footage and stills. The following tracks are used on the new dvd, note not all are complete tracks. 1 grateful dead going down the road feelin bad 2 incredible string band adam & eve 3 captain beyond lazy people 4 captain beyond see your face again 5 kinks lola 6 grateful dead good lovin 7 captain beyond instrumental 8 family don t let them stand 9 captain beyond instrumental lead 10 family as sure as a feelin tyne & ware 11 new riders of the purple sage willie & the hand jive 12 kinks lola reprise 13 incredible string band grandma clears the trash 14 grateful dead one more saturday night 15 donovan you & I 16 donovan yellow 17 donovan some of your love 18 donovan the ordinary family 19 donovan tired & weiry 20 donovan try for the sun 21 country joe sweet Lorraine 22 country joe entertainment is my business 23 incredible string band this moment 24 incredible string band weather the storm 25 incredible string band country & western theme 26 incredible string band medley of jigs 27 captain beefheart click clack 28 captain beefheart spitball scalped a baby 29 captain beefheart bass & drum solo 30 captain beefheart black snake 31 kinks you nearly got me 32 kinks all day & all of the night 33 captain beyond better than nothing 34 captain beyond spaced out instrumental 35 cheech & chong funky washington rare sketch 36 grateful dead jerrys opinion 37 grateful dead me & my baby 38 grateful dead ask me for mercy askin for water 39 grateful dead cafes & bars black throated wind 40 grateful dead while mother america cries 41 grateful dead plant black throated wind 42 grateful dead next time you see me 43 grateful dead goin down the line 44 grateful dead goodbye tell the sailors 45 grateful dead march you up & down 46 new riders of the purple sage sailing 47 new riders of the purple sage contract 48 new riders of the purple sage watcha gonna say 49 new riders of the purple sage jam improvisation 50 family wait there in the distance 51 family write & yours & mine 52 family ships set sail 53 family am on the road 54 flamin groovies hurricane jumpin jack flash 55 grateful dead not fade away 56 grateful dead instrumental improvisation 57 family good times bad times 58 family hey now easy star

4.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first... 9 Dec 2010
I must say that this is somewhat even better than the first DVD. There is simply more to it and even some of the original footage has been improved upon having been re-cut and re-edited. Even if you own the first, I can still recommend purchasing this latest volume. Can't wait to see if any more footage turns up out of the dust pile.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic archive film and stills 1 Dec 2010
I was at Bickershaw and I already have the first DVD and thought the rare footage of the crowd and festival in that was amazing. This Volume 2 (which I managed to buy in advance as I wanted to review it for a couple of mags) runs out at over four hours. To see the hippies and music fans camping in the fields around Wigan in advance of the festival, to see a young nervous Jeremy Beadle in his guise as creator of the West Coast dream on the fields of Wigan is all pretty amazing.The short sections on stage of Donovan,Incredible String Band,Family,Flamin Groovies and Haydock Brass Band are a welcome addition to Volume 2 and the improved sections on Volume 2 of all the other bands from Volume 1 make the new DVD even better. Don't expect Woodstock filmed with loads of cameras- do expect the counter culture has a week in Wigan filmed by lots of stoned enthusiasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars It feels like I was there watching it 13 Dec 2010
It was chaotic, it was muddy, it was apparently organised by Jeremy Beadle who appears in the four hour dvd several times as the worried young festival promoter.It was the Grateful Dead's second festival visit to the UK ever and the weather and site were apalling but this dvd shows that the fantastic haphazard line up and organisation was why 40,000 people who went cited it as one of the best rock festivals ever despite the mud and rain. The grainy bits of daytime film of Donovan and Incredible String Band are amazing. The short night time footage of Family and Flamin Groovies have apparently not be seen for nearly 40 years since they were filmed ( neither have the Donovan and ISB come to that) the crowd footage and the footage of pre festival and post festival is amazing,The grateful Dead footage is a mixture of rare cine and stills and there is a gret interview with Garcia. The Haydock Brass Band playing to an awakening morning hippy crowd. The DVD sleeve did worry me because it warns that it is for archive film fans and people who went to the festival only but congatulations to Jeremy and Ozit Morpheus who pulled the new four hour version out of the hat apparently in late 2007 and it's sad that Jeremy didn't see it finally come out a couple of years later. Well worth buying if you are into the history of rock festivals.
