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

33 editions published between 1969 and 2016 in English and held by 1,945 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

Love is the song we sing : San Francisco nuggets, 1965-1970( Recording )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four decades ago, legions of young people trekked to San Francisco and its famed Haight Asbury district, the epicenter for the youth-driven counterculture revolution that was transforming American culture. They came for peace, politics, community, love ... and they came for the music, the most enduring legacy of that very special place and time. It has proven to be the element that really tells the true story of San Francisco in the 1960s. The city, and the Bay Area overall, were exploding with spectacular talent, including pre-eminent icons the Grateful Dead, Santana and the Jefferson Airplane as well as countless other acts that brought San Francisco's expansive sonic vibe to national, and ultimately worldwide, prominence. And, just as aspiring hippies and youthful seekers of summer lovin' flocked westward to savor the Golden State's golden age, musical talent from across the country descended on the City by the Bay including Texan Janis Joplin and Chicagoan Steve Miller. They all added to the amazing stash of sounds that remains a cornerstone of contemporary music, and they're all featured here, superstars and lesser known talents alike. The set's four discs explore this musical phenomenon from diverse vantage points for a kaleidoscopic sonic tapestry that is both vintage and timeless
