Woodstock: Return to the Planet of the 60's (1989) (TV)

This is absolutely great and completely forgotten. From the original hour-long CBS primetime broadcast, this selection has no listing info anywhere, it's not even in Mr. Hesseman's bio. Weird, man. Hosted by Howard Hesseman and featuring lost performances by; Joan Baez, The Band, Country Joe McDonald, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Arlo Guthrie, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, John Sebastian, Sly & The Family Stone, and Johnny Winter and special Woodstock-times remembrances from Penn Jilette, Robert Klein, Martin Mull, Susan St. James, Judy Tenuta, Steven Wright and the legendary Henny Youngman. There's also a funny segment with Mr. Vassmer of Vassmer's market, he was still there as of '89. Personal favorite is Johnny Winter strangulizing a bitchin' electric 12-string guitar. Awesome!
