Garcia can be heard saying "Marijuana - Exhibit A" prior to the Arlo Guthrie track Coming Into Los Angeles. This brief moment is also included in the original Woodstock film.

The Woodstock Music and Art Festival was held on the August 15 to 18, 1969. The Grateful Dead played on the second day of the festival but no part of their set has appeared on the various film and audio releases associated with the festival.

This album reached #1 in the US Top 200 on July 11, 1970 and remained in that position for four weeks.
