Product Description

Product Description

A documentary chronicling the once-in-a-lifetime rock concert to which hippies and beautiful people flocked from all over the world in August 1969. Rock icons caught in performance include the Who, Santana, Crosby, Stills and Nash and Jimi Hendrix. The film won an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature.

Synopsis

1969 was a year unlike any other. Man first set foot on the moon. The New York Mets won the World Series against all odds. And for three days in the rural town of Bethel, New York, half a million people experienced the single most defining moment of their generation; a concert unprecedented in scope and influence, a coming together of people from all walks of life with a single common goal: Peace and music. They called it Woodstock. One year later, a landmark Oscar®-winning documentary captured the essence of the music, the electricity of the performances, and the experience of those who lived it. Newly remastered, the film features legendary performances by 17 best selling artists.

I don't think anyone can expect a film made over 40 years ago to have the same picture and sound quality as one made in recent years however the 4 hour directors film is much better than the standard DVD version was. To me, this is more about the content than the picture quality and the real benefits of buying the Ultimate Collectors Edition is the film content and extras that include:

The 'Woodstock: Untold Stories' feature which includes all of the never before seen performances:

Joan Baez - One Day At A Time
Country Joe McDonald - Flying High
Santana - Evil Ways
Canned Heat - I'm Her Man
Canned Heat - On The Road Again
Mountain - Beside The Sea
Mountain - Southbound Train
Grateful Dead - Turn On Your Love Light
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Born On The bayou
Creedence Clearwater Revival - I Put A Spell on You
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Keep On Choogling
The Who - We're Not Gonna take It
The Who - My Generation
Jefferson Airplane - 3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds
Joe Cocker - Something's Coming On
Johnny Winter - Mean Time Blues
Paul Butterield - Morning Sunrise
Sha Na Na - Teen Angel
Canned Heat - Woodstock Boogie
The Who - Sparks
Jimi Hendrix - Spanish Castle Magic

These performances have variable video quality and are in 4:3 format but are great additions to what's already been formally released. The Grateful Dead's 'Turn On Your Love Light' is one of those that the picture quality isn't brilliant but its 36 minutes long and a great performance.

There are several other bonus extras that include:

Woodstock from Festival To Feature
Reflections Of An Era
A Farm In Bethel
Cinematic Revolution
Woodstock Generation

A must have for any Woodstock fan. This is worth getting just for the extras and to have the full extended version. If you already have the directors cut and are not too bothered about extra features then it's not essential to have this. If you've never seen the film but are a fan of the era or the music from that era it's great to watch and well worth buying. It really gives you a sense of being there.

I am from the States and picked this up because I assumed that it had the stateside 'Target Store' extras. As it turns out all 6 exclusive songs and all 7 featurettes from Amazon.com AND Target are included. As far as I know this is the only place to pick up a version with all these extras. A great version of this blu-ray!!! Highly recommended.

I love this DVD for it's really excellent value for money and because there is so much content (4 separate DVDs in total). The first couple of discs have the main editor's cut of the filming of the event. Starting from the crew setting up the venue (building the stage, lighting rigs etc.) in the rolling green countryside, then watching as thousands of people turn up for the event (with all the associated problems) and finally the scene after it's all over and the acres of litter and mud. Interspersed throughout the film you get to see some of the acts from the likes of Richie Havens, The Who, Crosby Stills and Nash and the awesome Jimi Hendrix. You get a glimpse also of how the event affected the local residents of Bethel Woods. You really feel the atmosphere and what it would have been like to have been there, including the moment when there is a huge rainstorm and people get soaked and some of them have fun making a mud-slide. In many places the screen splits into 2 or 3 individual shots, so you get even more content! There is also a short film about the museum that has been set up in recent years.
The second couple of DVDs have individual acts that you can listen to in any order, accessed through a number of screens with individual links. Some of the acts are a bit long-winded and a little unrehearsed, but on the whole there are some cracking performances.
My only wish was that I could have been there.

So far I've only watched one performance and that's the mesmerising 37+ minute 'Turn On Your Love Light' by the Grateful Dead.
Okay, I'm a fan so slightly biased, but that performance along is enough for me to warrant this a 5 star rating.
Just another 6+ hours of sheer delight to go.

Just fantastic. The original movie had a profound effect on my life when i saw it on its first release in 1970 in Leicester Square, London... the audience sang along and I was hooked. It's a film to which i've returned time after time, being the essence of my hippie generation at its peak.

What this 4 disc DVD collection does (along with Woodstock Diaries) is give us glimpses of some of the sets the original movie missed, and it's fascinating stuff. Here'smy points to watch out for:

1) We get to see the Grateful Dead (who spent years not allowing their performance to be publically released) performing "Lovelight" and you can see why it was never part of the movie. Pigpen, their earthy singer before he died in 1973 and on-off lover of Janis Joplin, could not really command the crowd, and his usual facility with words fails him here ...he's reduced to repeating "now wait a minute" way too many times. Babbs, a Prankster,stumbles on stage to provide a stoned and pointless monologue, and Garcia looks discomforted, with Lesh virtually out of camera shot. The song rises eventually to a fiery climax, but its an opportunity missed.

2) Canned Heat are a revelation. Fantastic performance from them. They made it into the director's Cut, but here you see them in greater detail. What a band.

3) Bert Sommers shows up on the Woodstock Diaries. Worth checking out... a great missed Woodstock legend.

4) Hendrix? I'm one of those who thought his performance sloppy... which is what people thought at the time.

5) Joan Baez shines out, a great star of the era.

Lots of mini documentaries about the filming of the movie, its cultural significance and so on.

Cynics have scoffed, the entire hippie ideal rapidly became a sort of easy historical joke: but it was no joke, and all those flower children produced seeds...

Love it.
