Well, at least one thing related to the 50th anniversary of Woodstock seems to be organized.
Just announced in honor of the golden anniversary of the legendary festival is Woodstock - Back to the Garden: The Definitive 50th Anniversary Archive, which contains 38 CDs made up of 432 tracks of which 267 are previously unreleased. As Rolling Stone put it, this box set contains literally every single note of music from the original Woodstock, with the exception of three songs.
...BUT WAIT! THERE'S SOMEHOW MORE!
This obscene box set, which is due out August 2 and priced at $799.98, is housed in a screen-printed plywood box and contains the following:
-Blu-ray director's cut of the Woodstock film
-Woodstock hardcover book by Michael Lang
-Ephemera including Replica Original Program, Replica Posters, Henry Diltz Photo Prints, Guitar Strap
This summer marks the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, the defining event of a generation and one of the most iconic moments in popular music history. No one has ever attempted to document the historic festival as it unfolded in real time. Until now. LEARN MORE: https://www.rhino.com/woodstock50 Subscribe to the Rhino Channel!
