Woodstock : 3 days of peace & music by Michael Wadleigh( Visual )

47 editions published between 1969 and 2016 in English and held by 1,912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For three days in the summer of 1969, a rock concert was held on an upstate New York farm, and 400,000 people attended -- far more than were anticipated, far more than paid, far more than could be fed or sheltered or cared for after injuries or drug overdoses. It rained, there was mud, all traffic in and out was gridlocked, and the music continued, night and day. "Woodstock Nation" existed for three days and was absorbed into American myth. As depicted in this film, in roughly chronological order, the elusive memory of that nation is cemented into a pungent social documentary. Few documentaries have captured a time and place more completely--in the full flower of its moment, youth, and hope--than this one. It is also one of the finest musical documentaries ever made--if not the best--utilizing adventurous camera work, daring editing, frame mirroring, freeze frames, blackouts, and multi-angle perspectives widening the 1.33:1 image to 2.20:1 to capture flamboyant, riveting, career-defining performances, within an amazing chronicle of how the musicians interact onstage as audience members react to the musicians' performances

Festival express by Bob Smeaton( Visual )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the summer of 1970, a series of music festivals took place across Canada. After the first festival in Toronto, the musicians, their roadies and a film crew traveled by private train to the remaining festivals in Winnipeg and Calgary. This is the story of the Festival Express. The tour was a financial flop, and thanks of a fight between the festival promoters and the film producers, no film was edited or exhibited. So this film is, in effect, a brand new film from 1970. If the tour itself was not a success, the party that accompanied it became legend: take one private train, add eight bands full of talented musicians get impromptu jams fueled by drugs and liquor in every car. The main attraction is two now deceased headliners, Janis Joplin and Jerry Garcia, seen both on stage and off. Filmed only two months before Joplin's death, the sequences involving her are truly electrifying and capture her at the height of her self-consuming talent. The Grateful Dead are captured while in the midst of recording and releasing its two essential albums (Workingman's Dead and American Beauty). It captures a pure moment in time when musical hearts and minds beat as one, when musicians of all stripes--without benefit of publicists, handlers, or security goons--came together to work and play hard and leave behind one damn fine-looking corpse

Pearl by Janis Joplin( Recording )

80 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pearl was Janis Joplin's valedictory. It was also her masterpiece. Originally released posthumously in 1971, Pearl encapsulates Janis's greatness. The first female superstar of the modern rock era, Janis was not only powerhouse performer of rock and blues but also showed an innate affinity for sould, country-inflected folk and even the Great American Songbook. This two-disc edition of Pearl features bonus tracks including the touching tribute 'Pearl' composed by Full Tilt Boggie, while Disc Two chronicles Jamis's 1970 trans-Canada Festival Express tour, and is sequenced to recreate one of the spellbinding shows from that summer. Pearl is further enhanced by hones, lovingly written liner notes by John Byrne Cook, who was Joplin's road manager from late 1967 until her passing. Through it was to be her final recording, Pearl is proof positive that Janis Joplin left this world on a resoundingly high note"--Container
