The Woodstock 6 CD set went on sale today. It is not every show complete (that would be 30 days worth and worth day $250 as a cultural heirloom) and it is not available on Itunes and with a price tag of eighty seven bucks after taxes at Borders it appears to be a complete waste of money as the record business does what it has always done to Woodstock since the day after it ended. Made bucks from it. It averages to $14.50 a CD for an average of 14 songs (and four or five completely irrelant shout outs from the intensely irritating Chip Monck -he’s like a camp counselor in a strip club) on if you prefer, 99 cents a song. This is huckesterism and hype but no surprises here.
I bought it because I wanted to review it -I wanted to take a closer look. If I wasn’t writing a music blog I would never have. At Borders I felt that I might have been better off getting the Joplin and the Sly complete set CDs. Oh, and as Robert Nevin, where’s Ten Years After?
At some point I am going to review and rate every song and then give you a scientifically proven final rate and grade and an accurate value in dollars based upon a dollar a holla. Till then? BUYER BEWARE!!
Busted to the side
an easier separation in seasons as the summer of 2023 failed to prove itself musically
has never quite caught on in the USA
Jean making a name for himself and SZA stealing it
a pretty solid starter kit
the song of the summer that wasn’t one
Sinatra remained his aloof, superstar self
my list syncs up pretty well with the 1979 Village Voice Pazz and Jop
a special collection
Taty is an incredible portrait artist
