Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music

By Michael Lang.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music.'

The official 50th-anniversary book on the festival that epitomizes the '60s

This is the official 50th-anniversary celebration of Woodstock, by the festival's co-creator and co-founder, Michael Lang. A large illustrated edition, it includes hundreds of photographs and documents accompanied by Lang's fascinating memories and insights into the most famous and influential festival of all time, with images of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Crosby, Stills Nash & Young, Richie Havens, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Santana, Janis Joplin, Joan Baez, Country Joe McDonald and the Grateful Dead. The ephemera from Lang's largely unseen archive include the original designs and plans for the event, correspondence, set-lists, information on artists' fees and much more. This wealth of information is accompanied by the best photographs of the event by famous and unknown photographers such as Ralph Ackerman, John Dominis, Bill Eppridge, Dan Garson, Barry Z. Levine, Elliott Landy, Lee Marshall and Baron Wolman, and notably featuring the archive of Henry Diltz. Diltz was the only official photographer at Woodstock and was there for two weeks, from an empty field of cows to first construction, crowds arriving and the aftermath. He also captured onstage performances and behind-the-scenes moments with the many artists involved. Woodstock is an exuberant volume that conveys the vision, hard work and elusive magic that made up "three days of peace and music."

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Interview

Devon Ivie

Consider [Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music] a scrapbook of sorts—it has enough photos, historical documents, and even more photos to make it feel like you were actually there.

New York Post

Michael Kaplan

“Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace and Music” [...] reveals that it wasn’t all good karma and rainbows. There was also plenty of mischief, skinny-dipping, public fornication — and trash.

Huck

Sara Rosen

Replete with images of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Richie Havens, Santana, Janis Joplin, Joan Baez, the Grateful Dead, and candid shots of festival-goers living out scenes of pure hippie bliss, [Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music] also features rare archival ephemera including set-lists, correspondence, and designs for the event.

Publishers Weekly

Lela Nargi

Billed as the official commemoration of Woodstock’s 50th anniversary, this book, written by festival co-creator Lang (who’s had a hand in several titles on the subject), is heavy on photos and a positive framing of the weekend.

Rolling Stone

[Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music] is a wonderful reminder of a time when you could still carry on a historic event while facing such setbacks.

Midwest Book Review

A coffee table style volume that is a pure nostalgia experience for those members of the baby boomer generation who were there, and offering insightfully visual and informational insights to those who were not, "Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music" is guaranteed to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to personal, community, and academic library collections.
