Woodstock Diary 1969 : Friday Saturday Sunday, 1 DVD, 180 minutes
Ce DVD de presque trois heures va vous permettre de vivre de l'intérieur le festival de Woodstock. Ces trois jours de concerts attirèrent plus d'un demi-million de spectateurs sur les 300 hectares d'une ferme, dans le nord de l'Etat de New York. L'affiche du festival est à couper le souffle par la profusion et la qualité des artistes et des groupes qui répondirent présents. Dire que cet événement historique a bien failli ne pas avoir lieu. Une série de catastrophes se ligua pour mettre à mal le festival de Woodstock. C'était sans compter sur la persévérance et l'abnégation de certains de ses personnages clés, qui permirent au rock de prendre cette ampleur nouvelle. Woodstock Diary est le documentaire incontournable sur la réalisation du festival de Woodstock et de ses trois jours de festivités. Dramatique, comique et même parfois tragique, ce film témoigne de ces temps si particuliers du mouvement hippie quand la jeunesse pensait vraiment pouvoir changer le monde.Voir l'ensemble des Descriptions du produit

Other than the opening 10 minutes or so of Woodstock Diary 1969 (which explains how the event was put together) and throughout its entire run includes some current day comments from the organizers, the rest of this film is mainly all performances. Yes, they do show a lot of the crowd, and some of the shots are the same that we saw in Woodstock. But the main thing the viewer gets to enjoy here is the music, and again, mostly performances of songs not seen before. The only repeats from the movie Woodstock are: One song from Richie Havens' opening act, "Freedom". But we also see him doing "I Can't Make It Anynmore", which wasn't shown before. Country Joe McDonald, who followed Havens, only played one song, "Fixin' to Die Rag", and that is also shown again here. Country Joe wasn't suppose to play solo, and his band The Fish was not scheduled to play till Sunday. He was just up there to fill time since the acts that should had been playing were stuck in traffic (Richie Havens, who opened Woodstock, had to do so for the same reason, as he wasn't suppose to go on until later Friday night).
Other repeated songs already shown in the movie Woodstock came from Santana, Ten Years After, and one part of Jimi Hendrix's performance. Only difference this time around for these repeats are some different camera angles. All of the rest of the songs we get to see in Woodstock Diary were not in the movie Woodstock.
There were several highlights here for me that I very much enjoyed. Janis Joplin, who's performance wasn't even in the movie (except for the director's cut) is shown singing "Try (Just A Little Bit Harder)" and "Ball & Chain". Man was she on fire and what a joy to watch! Then The Who does a nice take of "My Generation". Only problem here is the camera shots are not that great, we don't get to see too much of Keith Moon and almost nothing of John Entwistle.
Also wonderful to view is Canned Heat doing "Leaving This Town"; Joe Cocker belting out "Let's Get Stoned"; The Band with a great take of "The Weight"; and Johnny Winter doing "Mean Town Blues". Another nice bit is Joan Baez singing a duet with Jeffrey Shurtleff on "Drug Store Truck Driving Man"
I can see why Jefferson Airplane's performance wasn't in the movie. They didn't really seem to have it together in the two songs shown here. "Somebody To Love" is awful, and the easy to play "White Rabbit" is simply okay at best. Grace Slick actually doesn't sound bad at all, but the band sounds off. They were suppose to play Saturday night, but because of all the delays, which wasn't their fault, they didn't take the stage till after sunrise on Sunday morning. Yes, they had been up all night waiting to go on, and it showed.
Woodstock closed out with Hendrix. The one song repeated here from the movie is "Star Spangled Banner", which is fine with me, as nobody has ever played it better! Then next up is Jimi just jamming away with what is titled "Woodstock Improvisation" and man, this is just out of sight! I could watch Hendrix play guitar like this all day long and never grow tired of what this shooting star left us with.
If you liked the movie Woodstock, especially for the music, then you will love Woodstock Diary 1969. This DVD is for sure something you will want to get your hands on, so do check it out!
