Woodstock Diary 1969 DVDs up for grabs

August 15th 1969 was a day that went down in popular music culture when nearly 500,000 people descended on the infamous site of Woodstock to listen to 26 now-legendary artists over a 3 day period.

Woodstock Diary 1969 comprises some three hours of music and features appearances from Joan Baez with Drugstore Truck Drivin’ Man and Sir Galahad, The Who with My Generation, Janis Joplin giving a heart-stopping rendition of Ball & Chain, Arlo Guthrie performing Dylan’s Walking Down The Line, Tim Hardin’s tender reading of his own classic song If I Were A Carpenter, Jefferson Airplane with Somebody To Love and White Rabbit and Jimi Hendrix with Star-Spangled Banner, Woodstock Improvisation and Villanova Junction.

Richie Havens, Sha Na Na, Incredible String Band, Sly and the Family Stone, Johnny Winter, Crosby Stills & Nash, Jo Cocker and Country Joe and The Fish also turn in classic performances which have ensured that, while there have been subsequent attempts to imitate the event, the original electrifying Woodstock Festival has never been emulated.

This is an enthralling "fly on the wall" rockumentary about the creation of Woodstock and of the actual three day event itself. It contains drama, humour and even pathos and recaptures those heady days of the hippie movement when young people really believed that they could change the world. And yet incredibly this historic event almost never happened. A series of near-catastrophes conspired to derail the Woodstock Festival and but for the sheer perseverance and chutzpah of several key characters, the whole course of rock music could have been drastically different.

Re-released to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of this momentous event, Woodstock Diary 1969 features electrifying live footage performances of many of the bands and performers who appeared. Directed and filmed by D.A. Pennebaker and produced by Alan Douglas, this is a 180 minute blast from the past – a must have DVD title!
