... by Linanne G. Sackett (photos by Barry Z. Levine)
Picture, if you will, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in one place with no immediate clue as to why they are really there. Then, the music starts and it all becomes clear.
I was just 14 years old when Woodstock happened, so I wasn’t one of those many music fans who showed up in the little town that no one had heard about before. But I did know most of the music. Some of the bands I liked; others I could take or leave.
So, I did want to take a peek at this book when it was offered to me for review. And I’m glad I did.
What wonderful photos that truly prove a picture is worth a thousand words! This oversize book is page after page of images taken before, during and after this spectacular event.
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, Sackett and Levine have given rock and roll fans a way to remember a special time in the history of music and, indeed, of the country … even those of us who weren’t there.
I give this 4 books because of the marvelous photos!
