Three days of peace and music and squalor are a lot to fit into one movie. The Lost Performances is a collection of performances that didn’t make it into Woodstock, the movie, and four that did appear on Woodstock, the two albums: excruciating numbers by Canned Heat and Melanie, the infamous rain chant, plus a worthier reprise from Crosby, Stills & Nash (too bad they blow the lyrics on Lennon-McCartney’s ”Blackbird”). The real finds are Joe Cocker’s ”Let’s Go Get Stoned,” Arlo Guthrie’s whimsical cover of Dylan’s ”Walkin’ Down the Line,” in which he seems to have taken Cocker’s advice, and Janis Joplin’s torrid ”Work Me Lord.” B+
