3 Days Of Peace & Music

WOODSTOCK 3 Days Of Peace & Music (One of the most astonishing & delightful items to ever pass through my hands & difficult to describe in a way to do it true justice, but here goes ... In 1969 the world witnessed an event that, for a short period of time, seemed to display a new hope to a younger generation raised on the horrors of Korea, Vietnam & the Cuban missile crisis. That was the three day event held at Max Yasgur's dairy farm in Bethel, New York, between August 15th & 18th that year entitled 'The Woodstock Music And Art Fair'. Events at the festival have been documented at great length, the film & soundtrack have been released, so that part is well known. What is less well known is that the organisers produced a fifty four page programme for the event, lovingly crafted in detail & printed on high quality paper stock. What we have here is one of those programmes that, apart from some incredibly minor rubbing to the front & back cover & a little rust staining at the staples, is in astonishing near 'as new' condition. This is NOT a repro, but a 1969 original & the first one that we have ever seen!)

Tracklisting & More Information

This is an original, not a modern repro.

There were reproductions printed during the eighties, including some in very high quality by MFSL, but this is not one of those.

So, how can you tell ?

For starters, the MFSL reproductions that were produced for their Woodstock sets had one of the articles replaced with an article headed 'Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs', which detailed their part in the restoration & remastering of the original concert audio. This does not have that article, so an MFSL reprint it is not.

Here it starts to get more tricky ....

The paper inside is of high quality textured stock with the first & last page of printed semi transparent rice paper. The plain white pages have a 'coated' smooth feel, while the coloured pages are quite obviously high quality textured ragpaper or similar.

How To Spot An Original :-

1) The 'f' in '3 days of peace & music' on the cover must be on the yellow daisy.

This one quite clearly is. Repros have tended to vary the placement & font of the text. This is probably the easiest test, although there are further confirmations

2) The back cover text full stops [periods] are ROUND, where the reproductions are squared. These are quite clearly round.

3) The programme should be exactly 10 7/8 inches long and 8 3/8 inches in width. This programme is exactly those dimensions.

4) The staples should be exactly 2 5/16 inch from the top & bottom of the program. These are.

5) On The Grateful Dead page, all text should be in RED. Many of the repros had this text in black for ease of [cheaper] printing. The text on this is red.

6) The first & last pages should be printed on semi transparent rice paper/onion skin. These are.

7) There should be a selection of occasional & random small white dots in the black printed pages as a result of dust getting into the printing process. This in itself would not be enough to prove authenticity, but suffice to say there are indeed random dust spots present in the black printed pages.

8) Provenance. Often understated, this can be key in knowing exactly what you are looking at. This programme came from a collection of US programmes that mostly dated from the early sixties to the late seventies, so it is not a stranger found amongst a collection of modern programmes, but dates to the period covered by most of the rest of the collection.

Given the above tests, which this programme passed 100%, we can therefore be confident that this is the real deal from over forty years ago when the world briefly woke to a brighter new dawn.

An amazing item. A first for us & almost certainly in as good [or better] condition as you could ever hope to find without the aid of a time machine. Uncreased, untorn, no writing ... Beautiful !
