For three days in the summer of 1969, 500,000 people spontaneously gathered like no others had before or since then, bringing together peace, love, aromatic smoke and the sounds of the greatest rock 'n' roll show in history. Sounds and smells wafted through the air, making this legendary event one that has never been duplicated. Barry Z Levine, a member of the Academy Award-winning Woodstock documentary film team, captured this entire event. Levine arrived days before the crowds when Woodstock was still a green, grassy pasture and continued to photograph long after the last person had departed the debris-strewn mud hole. Over the course of that tumultuous week, Levine had taken so many pictures, he had blisters on his index finger and thumb from clicking the shutter and advancing the film. Levine stopped only once, for a 45 minute nap on top of a piano cover that was on stage while Blood, Sweat & Tears performed. Along with 240 full-color photographs, the text by Linanne G. Sacket presents a chronological account of this historical event, capturing the performers, personalities, audience, excitement, mood, and actions. The Woodstock Story Book is a must for anyone who was at Woodstock, wishes they had gone, or just wanted a bird's eye view at the greatest historical event of the 1960s.

The pictures tell the story.

The words tie the story together.

Makes one appreciate the wonder of this event.

When I look at some of the photos I sit with my mouth open. Example: a photo of 500K people is worth a million words.

Most of the photos I have not seen elsewhere, apparently taken by the author and not available to others.

Close-up pictures of the now-famous persons tell tales.

How did this event - against all probability - out of the control of the "organizers", come to pass? Remarkable!

Preparations were not adequate for any crowd, let alone the huge numbers that converged on this farmer's field. In spite of this, (or because of it?) a remarkable moment in time for an entire generation. A return to basics of human nature. Pictures tell the story.

Put this on your coffee table,
or keep it on your night stand.

A great way for the Woodstock Generation to "relate" to any younger generation... or visa-versa. Was this an event to imitate?? To fear?? Both??

My daughter loves Woodstock, so this may have been her favorite Christmas present this year.

I bought this book as a gift, the recipient and I myself were totally disappointed in it. It's title should be more like "Picture Book" as it definitely is not a story book. It's all pictures (and most of them are poor photography)..who wants to see the backside of a band?!?!? and poetry that reads like it was written by a 3 year old! HUGE THUMBS DOWN - DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

Cool book!

Can you remember what your life was like in 1969? Were you even born yet? I was around, and I can remember. I wasn't at Woodstock, but I read all about it, watched on television, and talked about with all my friends.

Forty years ago in 1969, on the site of a grassy pasture in upstate New York, three famous days August 15th, 16th and 17th, made world history. At a time when there were no cell phones, no email, no blogs, no GPS, word still traveled, and some 500,000 people traveled far and wide for this historic event. No one anticipate a crowd this large would show up. People parked as far as fifteen miles away, expecting music and fun. The tickets were free, and what resulted no one could have anticipated. The music flowed almost continuously while people got high, some bathed in ponds and just about all enjoyed the music of: Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Joan Baez, Joe Cocker, Santana, Grace Slick, Jefferson Airplane, Creedance Clearwater Revival, The Who, Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and so so many more musical talents that would define this generation. This historical event defined the hippie generation; a generation who wanted peace not war.

Barry Levine captured the entire event in photographs. From setting up for the performers, until the last of the attendees departed. His photos documented the entire event, including the mud soaked pastures and mountains of debris left behind after the event. So incredible was the photography that Woodstock won the Academy Award for Best Documentary.

The Woodstock Story Book is an awesome coffee table sized book, with some 240 fabulous color photographs, along with poetic verse. There was some nudity in a few of the photos, but nothing that I found offensive. This fabulous book would make a great gift item for someone who attended the event, or just someone like myself who grew up with the music and the culture of this generation.
RECOMMENDED - 4.5/5 stars

The Woodstock Story Book by Linanne G. Sackett and Barry Z. Levine is much more than photographs of the infamous peace concert called Woodstock. It's a chronicle of the festival from its inception to its completion. Levine's images are immediate, palpable, and candid, while Sackett's storytelling is clipped, providing only the essential details readers will need to grasp the photos before them. The foreward, written by Wavy Gravy, discusses the nostalgia he felt after seeing the book in its completion, and he notes that even though the outdoor festival ended, the principals and dreams of Woodstock live on.

Through poetic lines, The Woodstock Story Book tells a lyrical account of the days leading up to the festival, the struggles with locating a large enough venue, and the community created in just a few days. The festival's stages were not even completed before the crowds started arriving.

The Woodstock Story Book is an essential photographic history of a tumultuous time in our nation's history.

I was ten years old when Woodstock took place forty years ago, so I don't remember much about the event itself, but I sure do remember the music from it. I was goofy even back then, and would strap my transistor radio on to the handlebars of my bike and listen to music as I pedaled around the neighborhood.

I really enjoyed looking through the coffee table book, The Woodstock Story Book by Linanne G. Sackett, and reminiscing about those days and the music back then. The book is approximately 11 inches square and contains almost 300 color photographs (taken by Barry Z. Levine) and a poem about Woodstock. Even though there's not a lot of text in this book, I managed to learn a few things about the famous music festival:

* The event was organized by four friends - Michael Lang, Joel Rosenman, John Roberts, and Artie Kornfeld.
* The crowd was so peaceful, police and security had little to do and were called "Polites."
* One of my favorite bands, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young performed together for the first time.
* 500,000 people attended the three day event.

I think most people would enjoy looking through this book since it documents music that has stood the test of time.
