Woodstock Diary 1969:: Friday Saturday Sunday

Layout 1While there have been lackluster attempts to imitate the event, the original Woodstock Festival was far more than fires, hordes of dudes in backwards hats, and other idiocy.  In honor of the 40th Anniversary, Woodstock Diary 1969: Friday Saturday Sunday will see a DVD Release on September 22nd via MVD Visual and Wienerworld. Directed and filmed by D.A. Pennebaker, and produced by Alan Douglas (who actually shot Woodstock), this is a 180-minutes that can never be repeated. 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. It recaptures the days of the hippie movement when young people really believed that they could change the world.

Woodstock Diary 1969: Friday Saturday Sunday features appearances from The Who with ‘My Generation’, Janis Joplin giving a heart-stopping rendition of “Ball & Chain”, Arlo Guthrie performing Dylan’s “Walking Down The Line” and Tim Hardin’s tender reading of his own classic song “If I Were A Carpenter.” Richie Havens, Sha Na Na, Incredible String Band, Jefferson Airplane, Sly and the Family Stone, Johnny Winter, Crosby Stills & Nash, Jo Cocker, Country Joe and The Fish and Jimi Hendrix also turn in classic performances.
