Woodstock Nation Beware!!!
on 3 August 2009
This release called "Woodstock Diary 1969" is not new but the old "Woodstock Diaries" that were released in 1994!!!!
So for all of you who have the Original DVD don't buy this...
All you get is a new cover and a new name. The DVD is exactly the same!But you pay double the price, what a rip off!
Oh yes there is one difference,they did put subtitles on this release: French, Dutch and German only! Since I am German I checked out the subtitles and they turned out to be the poorest ones I've ever came across! In Arlo Guthrie's Stage anouncements "Far out" is translated to "Madness" and "Freaks" into "Half witts". But the peak is to translate "Walking down the line" into "Marching in a Military Order"!!!
If you haven't got the original "Woodstock Diaries" I sugest you get them because they do have a lot of previously(before 1994) unreleased Performances on them and lots of information. But stay away from this Re-release that only cost more money!
