The Summer of 1969 gave us "Woodstock" 3 days of Peace and Music. What a fitting tribute to such a great concert that the whole event was filmed for all of us some 45 years later. You won't want to miss such acts as Sly and the Family Stone. Sly no longer performs and the band rarely plays. Richie Havens was the last minute choice to open the concert. I guess looking out at several hundred thousand people gave some performers stage fright. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young made their first appearance together at Woodstock and said they were scared. There are just great performance throughout the film. The weather and the way the crowd bonded are also a big part of the story. See the whole story in "Woodstock"!
P.S. If you haven't seen the movie in years, the latest copy comes as close to the original as we will ever get!

Seen both the original and most recently the "Director's Cut". I was too young to attend but got some sense of the excitement and importance of the event at the time through the media.

I found the camera work disappointing with too many close up shots and the tendency to focus on certain musicians-usually the vocalists. Pete Townshend and Keith Moon were just as important, if not moreso than Roger Daltrey in The Who! I also would have liked to seen all the bands who played (even if it was a single song) and just more music versus the people/activities shots. Decisions had to be made editing and what's done is done. Possibly a reason to release a long version music only (if the original film exists)?

Announcing that the Movie Woodstock, 3 Days of Peace and Music, has a 40th Anniversary Edition. This includes footage not seen in the original DVD release. Best of all, this is the only Woodstock DVD that has what at the time was brand new format in video. Now you can watch Woodstock as it originally played in the theaters with widescreen multi-image format. We have only been seeing a part of the movie up until now. You will be amazed how great widescreen multi image formatting looks on your flat screen deluxe TV's. This is a must for the music collectors of 1960 rock and roll!
