Makes the whole event more real-some
on January 13, 2014
I'm 67, old hippy, and I concurrently read both books about the events leading up to the festival: Elliot Tyber's Taking Woodstock and Michael Lange's The Road to Woodstock. And I watched both movies: 'Taking Woodstock' and the doc '3 Days of Peace and Music', and I would try to keep the dates of everything constant as skipped from books to movies; There are many events in the movie 'Taking Woodstock' that didn't really occur and Michael Lange's partner in Woodstock is in '3Days of Music and...", in 'Taking Woodstock, Artie Cornfeld appears twice but is not really at all like Artie. It was really fun, however, to follow the trail to Woodstock through all these mediums, and conclude that it was all worth doing, and I love the movie so much, it takes me back to that time; I was on the west coast doing the same thing, turning on, tuning in, grooving on the sounds and camradery with friends. Where have all the flowers gone? Long time passing. I loved the movie Taking Woodstock, but keep in mind it is not about the concert, it's about events leading up to it. People who didn't live back then may not be able to relate to it. I think this movie is about 30 years in coming.
