Woodstock – Dig It Dig It! Arlo Guthrie on Today’s Vinyl Vault
“Like I was rappin’ to the fuzz man…” Some unforgettable lines from a stoned Arlo Guthrie during his appearance at the 1969 Woodstock festival, which we’ll get into today. Sort of. A popular number from any Arlo gig is Coming Into Los Angeles, but the actual version from Woodstock was so bad that the producers had to find another version from a completely different Arlo show and sneak it on the album as if he did it there. Cheating! Well, the one they found is great, and fits. The classic stage banter is from Woodstock. 5:20pm today. Out of town? Listen live on-line.
