Descripción

This 248 page jewel is presented in the pub's original glossy color photographic covers. Since 1931 Hirschfield Galleries has maintained a reputation for not bragging, but, at this time, we would be remiss if we did not mention that both binding and text block are rock solid tight and clean, AAA all the way. Totally unbumped and unmarked, save for very light rubs to corners. Held over three days in August 1969, the Woodstock festival was, for many, the culmination of the counterculture movement. More than 45 years later, the word Woodstock conjures notions of Edenic peace and love, a landmark moment from the Sixties that is both unforgettable and inimitable. In this authoritative reference guide the first of its kind, historian James Perone presents encyclopedic entries on all the performers who played Woodstock, including Joan Baez, Country Joe and the Fish, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Ten Years After, The Whoeven Sha Na Naas well as the organizers and decision makers behind the event, from Michael Langer, governor Nelson Rockefeller, documentary film director Michael Wadleigh, and even the Concerned Citizens Committee who prevented Woodstock Ventures from holding the fair at the original site in Walkill, New York. Historical chapters trace the history of the festival from its inception and planning to its aftermathincluding the infamous Altamont concert in December 1969 and the ill-fated 30th anniversary concert held in Rome, New York, in 1999. A wealth of historic photos plus an appendix of recordings and a subject index round out this wonderful reference for any scholar of 20th-century American music, history, and culture. Wowee! Son of a gun! Enough said of offerings which speak loudly for themselves. Acquire, enjoy, and share what the self-actualized author has discovered in his extensive intellectual travels to prepare this very informative writing for public edification. Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a permanent charact er lacking in transitory electronic renderings. As always, more photos and/or info will be sent on request. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 011023
