Editorial Reviews

A generation began in his backyard…. From Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), comes Taking Woodstock, a new comedy inspired by the true story of Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin) and his family, who inadvertently played a pivotal role in making the famed Woodstock Music and Arts Festival into the happening that it was. The Soundtrack CD features songs from a collection of music icons including Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Doors, Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, and more. Many of the tracks are by artists who performed at Woodstock and are of the era.The soundtrack also includes a newly recorded version of 'Freedom' called 'Freedom 2009' by Richie Havens and scores elections by Danny Elfman. All songs and score are from the movie. Taking Woodstock is a joyous voyage to a moment in time when everything seemed possible.

Format: Audio CD
This CD starts things off right with a brand-new recording of Richie Havens' "Freedom 2009," which is a little slower and more deliberate in approach and attack than the original version from 1969 that Mr. Havens totally improvised in the moment - but I think the slightly slower rhythms of this new track give everything an extra shade of contemplation . . . which is what Ang Lee's new film invites as well. Folks who attack this disc because a few of the tracks are not directly from Woodstock miss the point (and they can simply buy the actual Woodstock CDs if that's what they're looking to get) . . . this CD captures the spirit and the groove of the times (along with some well-placed new music tracks from film composer Danny Elfman, the "Main Titles" being my favorite of those offered) . . . use of the song "Maggie M'Gill" from THE DOORS' Morrison Hotel is a little anachronistic because the song wasn't released until 1970 (months after Woodstock happened) . . . but so what? Again, it's about the feeling of those times . . . and it was (and IS) a good feeling . . . isn't it nice to feel good about something these days?! This CD puts across a good feeling all on its own, and it's an especially nice counterpoint to the film (and this CD's live track of Grateful Dead's "China Cat Sunflower" kicks much jammin' ass - with an especially sweet tone on Jerry Garcia's leads) . . . Enjoy this CD, and then see the movie and read the book on which it's based . . . there's a lot of America to find in there.

Nice to have the great songs, artists from Woodstock on CD. Even the un-bleeped Fish Cheer!!
I was a little too young to be able to make it to Max's farm back then ... my parents and I had
a bit of a falling out over that!
