On Aug. 17, 1969, THE BAND played at Woodstock. One year later on the same date, they released their third LP “Stage Fright”.
Engineered by an up-and-coming Todd Rundgren, and produced by the group themselves for the first time, the album was recorded at the Woodstock Playhouse in their home base of Woodstock, New York.
Two different mixes of the album were prepared, one in the US by Rundgren and one in the UK by Glyn Johns. The Johns mix was selected for the original LP release and all subsequent reissues on Capitol (including the expanded 2000 remaster), while Rundgren’s mix was eventually released on a 24k gold CD reissue of the album by the DCC Compact Classics label in 1994.
How many of you have heard both mixes?
Happy 48th Birthday to “Stage Fright”!!!
