5.0 out of 5 stars The End of an Era, 14 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Woodstock (Audio CD)
Those who participated as performer, audience or organiser in the Woodstock festival in 1969 were probably unaware that these three days were to mark the end of an era. Altamont was just around the corner, Vietnam would escalate and the idealism and spirit of 1967 could not last. The Woodstock festival drew together some of the greatest performers of the era and many of these performances went on to achieve iconic status as did the artists themselves. This 2CD set replicates the original issue on three vinyl LPs. The sound has been remastered and is much improved. The 'scars in fine leather' comparison of the original vinyl release still holds true but the scars are not much harder to identify. There is no additional material on this release. For that you will have to seek out the 4CD set or 'Woodstock 2'. This recording improves on a historic musical artefact and is as such, an essential addition to any collection.Woodstock
