Product Description

Amazon.ca

For all but the most apathetic viewers, this concert souvenir is enjoyable in inverse proportion to familiarity with the real-life Woodstock '99 festival: the less you know about the hour-to-hour experiences of the audience and the event's violent denouement, the more you can enjoy the show. This 2½-hour summation, which offers one song each from 29 of the artists that appeared, can be viewed as a grab bag of funk, rock, hip-hop, and pop spanning several generations of performers, from show opener James Brown ("Sex Machine") to bad-boy rockers Limp Bizkit ("Show Me What You Got"), congregating under the would-be "brand" (as event promoters have baldly called it) first established on Yasgur's farm 30 years earlier.

The '99 edition, however, wasn't your father's Woodstock, despite the involvement of one of the original event's promoters. Moved to a decommissioned military airfield, cordoned by pricey concession and crafts stands, and designed to feed pay-per-view and cable TV (and, of course, the eventual home video version), Woodstock '99 seems far removed from the "peace, love, and music" mission of its namesake. Shooting on videotape, the production crew delivers a smoothly edited, crisply rendered concert with equally good audio resolution; if the team of directors occasionally cuts to the crowd, and to such mild (and mildly exploitative) provocations as topless female fans, dancing to the nonstop music, this is much less a cultural document than a straightforward concert video largely shorn of the drama. Given that the program's executive producers were the event's promoters, no one would reasonably expect them to 'fess up to deteriorating site sanitation or the eventual rape and riot that cast a dark shadow over the event.

With those indignities edited out, we're left with a lineup including G. Love & Special Sauce, Jamiroquai, Lit, Live, Sheryl Crow, DMX, the Offspring, Korn, Bush, Kid Rock, Everclear, Dave Matthews Band, Alanis Morissette, Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Everlast, Elvis Costello, Jewel, Megadeth, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, among others. Even with some individually lackluster turns, the sheer length of the bill is impressive--and, unlike the real event, you can fast-forward through the occasional "feel-good" interludes that try to graft some semblance of community onto the event, or such musical low points as the "feel-bad" rap-rock of Insane Clown Posse ("F* the World," an utterly pointless exercise in obscenity).

Die-hard fans of the headliners will probably want to take a peek at the stronger performances, however. But parents should be forewarned that the title carries an advisory sticker for lyric contents and those clips of less inhibited fans. --Sam Sutherland --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The video captures the music part of it. Unfortunatly all people are talking about is the late sunday afternoon. I was there and never in my life could i imagine a quarter million people getting along so well. I respected and got respected as if i was a brother to everybody. I met some the most coolest people in the world from canada, england, to alaska. It was all about having fun and I'll never forget it. It has changed my life forever. When I asked a woodstock clean up crew how much they were making they had told me it was 7.00. Seven dollars , give me a break . Charge us 5 for a water but pay a clean up crew 7. What do you expect the grounds to look like when you are not paying to keep it clean.You get what you pay for. Words can't express how much fun i had. Where else can you walk around naked in front of a quarter million people and not even bat and eye. Not to mention it was the hottest weekend of the year. HMMM....Lets see , pay 5 dollars for a beer or 5 dollars for a water? tough choice! All and all i think woodstock 99 was a remarkable experience. Don't let some yay hole reporter who's idea of having fun is waching the bubles disolve out of diswater tell you what went wrong. I was there and can't wait till the next one. email me your thoughts woodsy054@aol.com

The name says it all, "Woodstock 99"!! We all heard about it, it was on every news channel, newspaper, MTV, etc. But most of us could not go, and many of us did not want to pay $29.95 per day for Pay-Per-View. See it now for an affordable price. The fact that you are reading this means you want it, so buy it. The tape is very professionally done (SONY MUSIC), most of the footage seems to be from Pay-Per-View (camera shots could not be any better, and the sound was flawless), and it was a very good editing job to put the highlights of three days in a 2-1/2 hour tape. It is non-stop action. Great fun. Never boring. Invite your friends for a Woodstock party, order pizza & beer, and turn up the volume. PARTY! PARTY! I liked Sheryl Crow, KORN, Kid Rock, Dave Matthews Band, Alanis Morissette, Metallica, Megadeath, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and all of the topless girls. There were thousands of topless girls at the concert, and the tape captured quite a few (...too many to count). The tape has a NR rating, but deserves either a PG-14 or R rating. While there is lots of nudity, it would not be offensive to most women (I think?), it is just good fun; most of the nudity goes by quickly (guys be ready with your remote control). The ladies might like the guitarist for Red Hot Chili Peppers who performed in the nude. Something for everybody. Good music, good fun, and lots of topless girls! Everything that you expected and wanted from Woodstock for a cheap price, and in a tape that you will watch or listen to again and again. A multi-volume set of tapes of Woodstock would have been nice, but this tape does a good job of capturing the highlights and gives a good taste and feel for the event. You won't be disappointed.

This concert was the most amazing experience i have ever had. I loved every minute of it. The music, the excitement, the nudity, everything was wonderful, especially the raves. The movie didn't do the concert justice, all you see is the music...the woodstock experience wasn't the music alone. It was the people and the love that people had...it wasn't this horrible world of fire and rape. It was beauty, love, music and serentity all rapped in one package-woodstock. And the movie captured none of the drama.

I read one of the review's on here for woodstock 99
and I'm sick of people writing review's and they don't
even know the difference between rock and pop.
First of all Limp Bizkit, Korn and Kid rock are not pop
bands they are rock and metal bands.Sure they are mainstream
bands but they are still rock and metal bands.It's obvious
that future woodstock concert's won't be the same as the first.
That was then this now and there is a whole new generation
of band's out there waiting to be heard. wether it'd be metal,
hard rock, blues, Jazz, rap/hip hop,alternative and etc.a big
concert like this has to please everybody.They are not putting
on a concert just for you it's for everybody.I've never been
to woodstock but even I know that not everybody listen's to
the same music.I love rock n roll, blues, heavy metal , alternative, rap and Jazz and if I were to attend woodstock
if there's a band I don't like playing I'll walk away from
the stage and wait to hear who's next.I wish people would
respect music even if they don't like it.The reviewer who I'm
talking about must be old because he or she only care's
about the first woodstock and doesn't appreciate any other
music.Like I said that was then this is now and well if you
don't like it well don't buy a ticket. Woodstock 99' was
an awesome event with alot of great new music and a whole
new generation of people.It's ok to remember the first
woodstock but now there will be more and better woodstock's
in the future.
