Woodstock Revisited after 40 years,
This review is from: Woodstock: The Oral History (Paperback)
The music doesn't start until page 187, almost halfway through the book... Published 20 years ago with a text from interviews 20 years after the festival closed, those interviewed had a chance to talk about their personal experiences with the hindsight of the 70's and most of the 80's behind them.
Now that we are approaching the 40th anniversary, this book is a source for remembering how fresh and new the concept was and how the People were motivated to make it work, because we thought the music was that important.
'Build it and they will play' could have been the mission statement for the organizers, who had to invent their roles and miraculously provide resources in order to make it happen.
Let's hope that the publishers,will recognize the opprotunity of the anniversary and reprint this marvelous retelling of a sentinel event in the cultural and politcal history of the 60's, 70's and beyond.
