Book Review: Woodstock - Back to Yasgur's Farm

Observing the 50th anniversary of the milestone music event, Greenblatt gives us not only a detailed compendium of all the performers—both the immortals and the obscurities—but he shares a very personal, first-hand take on what it was like to be there. Greenblatt was not only there to enjoy the three-day event, he was one of those unlucky souls who took the now infamous "brown acid" that wreaked havoc on the psyches of those who ingested it. Terrific photos illustrate this attractive book whose foreword is written by Woodstock legend Country Joe McDonald.
