In August 1969, half a million hippies flocked to attend a huge rock music event at Woodstock, USA. It was an event destined to become the definitive document on the freaked-out craziness of the peace and love era. The line-up includes The Who, Joan Baez, Santana, Joe Cocker, Ten Years After, Country Joe And The Fish, Crosby, Stills And Nash, and Jimi Hendrix.

I am normally not a big fan of music documentaries nor of music videos/concerts on film. This was more of a historical documentary, filled with some of the best music from the era.

The standard blue plastic Blu-Ray case comes wrapped in a red cardboard cover-case.

The sound is AMAZING and the video quality is top notch for what they had to work with.

The first disk is only the film (3 hours 40 minutes), the second is full of the extras.

There are chapter breaks at all the right moments: following each performance and each segment, which makes it easy to skip to the end of any excessively long musical numbers and on to the next sequence.

Subtitles are English SDH, French, Spanish, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, German, Italian, Norwegian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Swedish, Thai.

Side trivial note: Martin Scorsese was Assistant Director and Editor of this film and is included in some of the interviews on the bonus disk. The film won OSCAR for best Documentary in 1970 and was a huge smash hit in the United States.

Play's price for this is so much better than anything the U.S. offers, as U.S. customers are forced to buy the set with a whole bunch of paraphernalia crap (cardboard ads, fake ticket stubs, booklets, fancy wrappings, etc.) and the going price is like $50 (£30)!

Take advantage of this deal if you have any appreciation for history or music and especially for both! :)
