    I wans't there either, but I wished I was. I got this DVD of Jimi Hendrix at woodstock. It is totally awsome. a friend of mine's got a documentary wich is sweet too. But isn't there something like a DVD set of like 8 DVD's containing the full 3 days. I mean they have a lot of video material. I would sit for 3 days non-stop :D
     
  5. I want the video man! That is soo cool. How much is it and how many tapes?

    I don't know, I belief it doen't even excist. It was a thought I had with some friends. At least I had that thought. So we were all like woow that's so cool than you could sleep with all the woodstock hippies together and wake up with some dude dressed like a cowboy telling stuff about a guy whose food stand got trashed and if we would help him :D That'd be great. So I hope some video dude sees this tread and makes it possible. If you ask me it would be possible since there's a looooot of video material as far as I know that is.

    I wasn't at Woodstock but I can tell you just about anything you want to know. The DVD idea is sweet but there is going to be a 22 cd release through a yahoo group which has about 80 percent of the festival on them. The groupe is called Woodstock69.

    I haven't been to any of the Woodstock concerts but I have been to the field where they had the festival. It really sucks that the Gerry Foundation is going to build on it as soon as they pass the section 106 review. Ground breaking is set for July or August. Here's a picture of what the field looks like now.
     
  8. It's terrible that they would build on the place where woodstock was built!!! I can't believe it!!! It's like a historic site, a part of our history, a peice of our culture. I don't know man... How can people sit around and let that happen?

    There is a group of preservationists working on preserving the field called the Woodstock Preservation Alliance (which I'm a member of) the website is www.thewoodstockspirit.org if you want to learn more. Check out the message board too.

    if they decide to build, we should all like lay on the field and stuff so they cant bring in their construction equipment. and like thousands of us! i need sleep..
     
  12. I would definitely do that. I'd lay there for a week if that's what it takes

    I was'nt born yet but i have the Woodstock DVD, Woodstock three days of peace and music. Saw some artist on there who arent alive today such as Jerri Garcia, Janis Joplin and Jimmy Hendrix. It was an awesome dvd but i to would like to see the whole thing on dvd. i would think they probably have video of all of it. They need to put more of it together into a platnium series. that would be cool.

    ergh. it's almost painful to watch the video, i wish i was there so bad!
    well i'm going to see Arlo Guthrie soon, so that'll be my first time seeing someone who played Woodstock! Yay!!!

    Building on the field is just wrong. wrong wrong wrong.

    I have got the "Woodstock - DIrectors Cut" DVD and the "Woodstock Diaries", and they are both just, just wonderful... I wish I had been there, it sometimes makes me really sad when I watch the video :( Releasing the whole festival on DVD would be really cool, I'd pay every price for it...

    Hi there, Here I am, looking for information about woodstock. I keep coming to this site : http://www.woodstockproject.com/ I never actually bothered to totally read it (I'm a lazy computer screen reader) But since I had totally nothing to do, I read it. And discoverd that the image is actually clickable. So in excitment I clicked on "woodstock" And I read the stuff. The guy/girl who did this tottaly rocks! If you're on this forum: please make an comment I would feel honoured, you managed to collect almost complete woodstock;) anywayz. I read it and came to the horrible conclusion that I've been living in a dreamworld. The fact is that I thought to have seen Jimi Hendrix on woodstock. In fact I haven't. They fucked it tottaly up. They erased parts, set "fire" at the beginning while it is much more closer to the end, they errased like complete songs. What is this vandalism! Can't they just bring it out totally. I mean if I want to hear it complete I'd have to buy 3 to 4 CD's and for 2 off 'em I'd have to search a whole damn lot. What is this trickery. Is this some sort of system, to let us buy like 50 cd's before we can read it :confused:

    I damand an explanation!!!! :mad:

    I wish I could say that I was there, but I was sitting at home in Gary when it happened. I remember seeing a photo in the newspaper of the traffic jam it caused; that was really the first I heard of it. I was just 18, and about to head off to college.

    I do know two people who went. Does that count? They describe it in absolutely glowing terms.
     
  18. I'd love to hear what they have to say about it.

    I wasn't there as I was only 11 years old and living in the UK (as I still do). But, I still remember it vividly, seeing it on news programmes at home and REALLY REALLY wishing I was there - even at that age!

    I`m lucky....I have a good friend who was not only at Woodstock, but also saw Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival in `65, and I`ve been fortunate to hear eye witness accounts. We don`t get together as much as we would like on account of my friend lives in the US and I`m here in England.

    I think it is tragic that the Woodstockl site is threatened. I`ve never forgiven the Liverpool authorities for destroying the original Cavern. Ok, there is a "rebuilt" Cavern Club in Matthew Street that I have been to on a number of occasions, but for me that is no compensation ( the one in the Beatles Story Museum at Albert Dock is better). And here we are threatened with the loss of another irreplaceable piece of rock history. Can`t help feeling someone somewhere gets satisfaction out of this sort of thing.
