I wish I didn't spend my money on this.
As a Woodstock 69 fan who bought almost anything affordable refering to Woodstock 69, I was excited to order this book. Supposedly it "examines the various audio and video documents that captured and preserved the 1969 Woodstock Festival. Recordings made by both official documentary crews and audience members". A real promise indeed.
Well, Is it really? NO! Not at all. There is nothing that is not easily found elsewhere. Easily - I mean it.
Major point of disappointment is the fact the writer does not mention THE BEST source of it all - The 20+ cd's of the Woodstock Complete series, now I think already Ver.4. He deals in more shallow than deep research in all the comercially issued versions, paying apecial lick in the a** to Rhino Records for their disappointing yet another cash milking cow 40th anniversary edition.
The 200 pages, if used with the right font size (we are not blind yet) could use less than 100 pages. What a waste of trees!!
And I will finalize my review with a mistake I found in no time: He mentions 1 Santana track that was captured on camera, but - if he had taken the effort to watch the 40th anniversary DVD set he would have realised that there are 2 songs (at least) captured on camera.
This is just to show you - this is a worthless book. I wish I could refund, on principle.
My recommandation: Don't buy!!

The authors zealously solicit accounting and relentless pursuit; results in this fine chronicle of the Woodstock Music Festival. From the commercial enterprises to the later bloom of individual private sources; the presentation of information maintains a what-is-what, and by whom perspective.

Scott Parker's endeavor was composed to enlighten and chronologically document the visual and audible recorded media sources originating from the 1969 Woodstock Festival. Effectively articulate this well written book is a compendium of the music of Woodstock. This is a reference sourcebook to the sights and sounds of history.

There is no finer example available and it would certainly be a valuable requisite for any Music History Collector or Woodstock library.

An incredibly researched work detailing the officially released and unreleased music of the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival. In addition, the book is a great read!
