FEAST OF FRIENDS:



Hollywood Bowl

Info:

The final segment of the finished 'Feast of Friends' film is performance footage of 'The End' captured live at the Hollywood Bowl on July 5th, 1968. A full version of the entire concert was officially released in 1987 as 'Live At The Hollywood Bowl'. The filmwork is a mix of 3 different 16mm Airiflex cameras, one high speed 16mm camera, and features professional 8-track audio of the concert recorded by Paul Rothchild and Bruce Botnick in the Wally Heider remote truck. As a full concert film release was never intended, portions of audio and film from this show are missing or disrupted.
