Woodstock: The Oral History is the definitive, electrifying account of the rock festival that shook the world and defined a generation.

In 1969 four young men - two budding entrepreneurs who really wanted to write sitcoms, a former head shop proprietor turned rock band manager, and a record company executive who smoked hash in his office - had a dream: to produce the greatest rock concert ever held. Little did they know how enormous a reality their dream would become - and what overwhelming hurdles they'd have to overcome, from crazed radicals to spoiled rockers to Governor Rockefeller.

Woodstock: The Oral History is the fascinating story of how it all came together - and almost fell apart - told by the men and women who made it happen.

It shares the adventures of a ragtag bunch of businessmen and bohemians, of hippies, hucksters, handymen, and hangers-on, working against all odds to unite a generation for one wild, glorious weekend in August 1969.

You'll hear the voices and get behind-the-scenes stories from such people as Abbie Hoffman; Miriam Yasgur (who, along with her husband, Max, owned the land on which the festival was held); Joe Cocker; Richie Havens; Wavy Gravy; Chip Monck; and dozens of other producers, performers, and key players in this rich tale of 1960s music, culture, politics, and hip capitalism.
