For three days in the summer of 1969, 500,000 people spontaneously gathered like no others had before or since then, bringing together peace, love, aromatic smoke and the sounds of the greatest rock 'n' roll show in history. Sounds and smells wafted through the air, making this legendary event one that has never been duplicated. Barry Z Levine, a member of the Academy Award-winning Woodstock documentary film team, captured this entire event. Levine arrived days before the crowds when Woodstock was still a green, grassy pasture and continued to photograph long after the last person had departed the debris-strewn mud hole. Over the course of that tumultuous week, Levine had taken so many pictures, he had blisters on his index finger and thumb from clicking the shutter and advancing the film. Levine stopped only once, for a 45 minute nap on top of a piano cover that was on stage while Blood, Sweat & Tears performed. Along with 240 full-color photographs, the text by Linanne G. Sacket presents a chronological account of this historical event, capturing the performers, personalities, audience, excitement, mood, and actions. The Woodstock Story Book is a must for anyone who was at Woodstock, wishes they had gone, or just wanted a bird's eye view at the greatest historical event of the 1960s.

On August 15, 1969, a music festival called Woodstock transformed one small dairy farm in upstate New York into a gathering place for over 400,000 young music fans. Concert-goers, called hippies, traveled from all over the country to see their favorite musicians perform. Famous artists like The Grateful Dead played day and night in a celebration of peace, love, and happiness. Although Woodstock lasted only three days, the spirit of the festival has defined a generation and become a symbol of the hippie life.

Singing in the Rain The Definitive Story of Woodstock at 50

Singing in the Rain  The Definitive Story of Woodstock at 50

This is the Woodstock that comes to life when reading Singing in the Rain.

Woodstock has often been called the coming of age of a generation, but that was a convenient spin. Woodstock was the opportunity that a half-million people took to show the world that they were of age, and quite capable of demonstrating that living in peace, love, and kindness was a model the world should follow, that theirs were the footsteps that could change everything, for the better. Singing in the Rain: The Definitive Story of Woodstock at Fifty is an inside look at the creative energy and performances that formed the legacy of Woodstock. Citing hundreds of sources, Singing in the Rain provides a delightfully-meticulous rendering of one of the most important events in living history. It can take decades for all the details of a transformational event such as Woodstock to come to the forefront, and it takes a patient, rock-loving investigator to frame it with the same sardonic humor that characterized much of the events of that weekend in August, 1969. Any student of rock history, anyone interested in popular music, any Woodstock attendee, anyone who has seen the movie will have wondered "what else took place?" from August 15-18, 1969. Readers will be astounded by the chronology of events that shaped the festival. The trials and tribulations the producers and staff faced, the songs that were played during that wonderful weekend, the comments made by lucky fans who attended the festival have been mapped out and presented in this fascinating, critical and historical analysis. This book clarifies what happened before, during, and after a festival that has withstood the test of time, and remains one of the iconic events in our history. The author brings the event back for us in ways we did not consider, demonstrating why Woodstock was the shooting star that remains forever etched in our memories. Plecki counters the erroneous concepts fostered by mass media, by other Woodstock authors, by statements of musicians who performed and did not perform at Woodstock, by politicians bent on preserving what they viewed to be a "healthier" status quo, and by some of the festival's producers themselves. This book connects the dots, dispelling fake news from fact, combining first-hand accounts of the festival's chronology with stories that will delight readers, easing them back into a time before rain delays would have been so micro-managed that they would have been sponsored by the weather channel. It is within this fascinating milieu that the reader will come to understand and appreciate all the music, magic, and hijinks that formed the nonpolitical, political tableau that was Woodstock. Singing in the Rain gives us a very specific, humorous, and heart-warming look at a never-to-be-forgotten era, when, for a brief moment, horizons were unlimited and possibilities were endless--a time when all people, hippies or straight, draft resisters and war veterans, lived for four days in peace and harmony, while being entertained by the best music the rock world has ever witnessed. This is the Woodstock that comes to life when reading Singing in the Rain.

Since August 1969, the Woodstock Music and Art Fair looms large when recounting the history and impact of the baby boom generation and the societal upheavals of the Sixties. Scholars study the sociological, political, musical, and artistic impact of the event and use it as a cultural touchstone when exploring alternative perspectives or seeking clarity. This interdisciplinary annotated bibliography records the details of over 400 English-language resources on the Festival, including books, chapters, articles, websites, transcriptions and videos. Divided into six main subsections―Culture & Society, History, Biography, Music, Film, Arts & Literature―for ease of consultation Woodstock Scholarship sheds light on all facets of a key happening in our collective history. Throughout the 1960s, popular music became increasingly reflective and suggestive of the rising political and social consciousness of the youth culture. Examples can be seen in the development of the protest song genre within the folk music boom of the early Sixties and the marriage of lifestyle to music first reflected by The Beatles with fashion, followed by psychedelic music with the emerging drug culture. Woodstock was where these themes coalesced, thus becoming the defining and last great moment of the 1960s. However, Woodstock also represented an abundant amount of experiences and ideas and moments. Thus, when exploring the complicated accounts and numerous facets of America during the turbulent Sixties one discovers scholarship on the key subjects, such as the Vietnam War or the Civil Rights Movement, often considering and debating the importance, relevance, and epic nature of Woodstock. Multiple narratives emerge: a radical engagement of the hippie movement, an overt commercial exploitation of youth culture, a political statement. Woodstock scholarship does not stand alone as field of study, but it is at the cross-road of a number of disciplines―music history, cultural studies, sociology, arts and literature, media studies, politics and economics. Providing full bibliographical details and concise, informative annotation for each entry, Woodstock Scholarship is an essential tool for students, scholars, teachers, and librarians in all these areas, as well as for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of both the Woodstock Music and Art Fair phenomenon and of the confluence of music, commerce and politics.

The Woodstock Story eBook brings the hard-cover version to life with the spirit of Woodstock today and with first-hand observations by Barry Z Levine, Photographer on the Academy Award Winning Documentary Film Woodstock by Warner Brothers, 1970. It includes many more pages, hundreds of color photos and hundreds of active links to the celebrities, their lives, stories and music. For three world-famous days in August 1969, 500,000 people spontaneously gathered for a happening like nothing before or since. Peace and love, aromatic smoke and the sounds of the greatest rock n roll show wafted through the air to become the legendary event that's never been duplicated. Fifty years later, Woodstock is still celebrated world-wide for the spirit it represents. As part of the Academy Award-winning "Woodstock" documentary team, still photographer Barry Z Levine captured it all. Arriving days before the crowd, when the site was still a grassy cow pasture and continuing to photograph long after the last of them had departed, when it had become a debris strew mud hole, Levine took so many pictures that he had blisters on his index finger and thumb from clicking the shutter and advancing the film. Over the course of that tumultuous week, the only time he stopped was for a 45-minute nap on the piano cover on stage during the Blood, Sweat & Tears performance.
