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!!
