Summary
"1969 was a time of euphoria and freedom, revolution and retribution, moonwalks and Manson. By the Time We Got to Woodstock captures the frenzy of this insane, wonderful, and often frightening year in glorious, blistering fashion, placing the greatest rock 'n' roll ever made against the landscape of Age of Aquarius optimism, druggy hedonism, and militant indignation." "This was the year that saw more music-as-manifesto and rock-as-revolution than ever before. At one mad outdoor party after another - from Miami to Denver, and from Woodstock to Altamont - cracks in the promised hippie utopia quickly turned to canyons. This was the year that saw the Beatles go supernova while Bob Dylan hightailed it to Nashville. From the Byrds, Joan Baez, Jimi Hendrix, the Airplane, and Janis Joplin to the Velvet Underground, the Mothers of Invention, Funkadelic, and the Fugs, 1969 stands up as a decade-smashing anomaly in the annals of rock 'n' roll captured in this book."--Jacket
