Another Little Bit of History RepeatingAugust 15-18 marks the anniversary of the Woodstock festival, an event Rolling Stone called "the most famous event in rock history." The Woodstock Music and Art Fair, on a 600-acre farm in the township of Bethel, New York, from August 15-18, 1969, was a peaceful gathering of more than 500,000 people and 32 musical performances. The festival took place against a backdrop of the Vietnam War, and one of the artists, Country Joe McDonald, took the opportunity to voice the anti-war sentiments of the time.
Forty-one years later against the backdrop of an ‘eerily similar war’, Alabama 3 have reworked the song. Respect, for the timely reminder of the connection.
