Having seen the documentary / concert that was Woodstock I recommend this ebook. The whole period that the concert took place in was one filled with expectation and new found advancements in technology and science. The line up of stars, the atmosphere of the threee days depicted set the bar for any major concerts considered to follow it. Yes there was the mud, the drinking and drug taking but most importantly there was the music. I definitely would not have liked to have lived too close to the actual concert but gee whiz what an occasion.

Strewn with inaccurate information and very basic errors. A complete waste of time and money. Quite possibly one of the worst accounts of an event I have ever read..

HASH(0x9859a1ec) out of 5 stars Interesting 19 Mar. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have heard about Woodstock but did not know a lot about what happened there. The book gave so much information that anyone that was not born during that time can also have the knowledge. I like the fact that it was neutrally written, so that one can make your own conclusion. I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys relevant history.
HASH(0x9859a438) out of 5 stars Great accounting of The Festival, lots of supporting information 29 May 2014
By zzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Excellent accounting of the planning of the Festival, what artists participated, and how it played out (no pun intended). The event was followed day-by-day, act-by-act. Many interesting anecdotes about those in the audience, how certain musicians got included or excluded, how they performed, what they performed, and whether their participation helped or hurt their career. The last chapter was a wrap-up of "where are they now?" Many have died, many continue their careers. Mostly, I read this to learn about the cultural impact of Woodstock, and the book offered that and so much more. It's not a long book, but it was packed full of interesting information, delivering exactly what I was looking for.
HASH(0x9859a3fc) out of 5 stars get you ya-yas here 25 Mar. 2014
By Mark Hem - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The writers dissect Woodstock into its true, clear parts. This ranges from the description of the high and dirty hippies to the strung out muscians. Mention is even made of all the songs in each set for each musician (s). The very last portion of the book explains the fate of the Woodstock muscians. As someone who had lived through that time (1969), I thought the book was quite interesting. For Gen X and the Millenials, I don't know, but, hey! It is an important piece of history!
HASH(0x9859a9d8) out of 5 stars Brief but enjoyable history of the most iconic music festival of all time. 24 July 2014
By James S. McEvoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book for several reasons. One is that it described the history of Woodstock from inception to aftermath in a readable succinct style. Another is that it showed the humanity of all involved. Finally, it generated a desire to do more research about the festival itself as well as the artists who were there. I also look forward to acquiring and enjoying the music. I recommend this book.
HASH(0x9859a78c) out of 5 stars Definitive reading for Music enthusiasts and Music Fans 26 Mar. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It is delightful to read about America's most Famous Music festival which took place during a time of
social foment. The Vietnam war was expanding , the Hippy movement was on ,and of course drug experimentation was on .
It is interesting to find out behind the scenes anecdotes of this iconic event;where some of the best of Music legends either debuted or performed.
