A generation began in his backyard..., From Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), comes Taking Woodstock, a new comedy inspired by the true story of Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin) and his family, who inadvertently played a pivotal role in making the famed Woodstock Music and Arts Festival into the happening that it was. The Soundtrack CD features songs from a collection of music icons including Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Doors, Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, and more. Many of the tracks are by artists who performed at Woodstock and are of the era. The soundtrack also includes a newly recorded version of "Freedom" called "Freedom 2009" by Richie Havens and score selections by Danny Elfman. All songs and score are from the movie. Taking Woodstock is a joyous voyage to a moment in time when everything seemed possible.

Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Photographer: Ken Regan.
Muze PNote TAKING WOODSTOCK, the 2009 comedy by director Ang Lee, was inspired by the diaries of Elliot Tiber, whose family was, by happenstance, a big part of making the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival the cultural event it was. The original score was written by Danny Elfman and is a separate release from this accompanying soundtrack. Many of the acts that performed at the festival are present here, along with some that were not and some of Elfman's own cues. The disc opens with a new recording of Richie Havens' "Freedom," which closed his set at Woodstock. It's different, but just as powerful, and certainly one of the better things here. A Hendrixian cut by Elfman follows this and then enters the studio version of Crosby, Stills & Nash's cover of "Wooden Ships." The Grateful Dead perform a live "China Cat Sunflower" (that sounds too pristine to have been recorded at the festival itself), and the Band plays a live "I Shall Be Released." Inexplicably, the Doors are here, as is Love with studio tracks we are all familiar with--"Maggie McGill" and "Red Telephone," respectively. Country Joe McDonald's "I-Feel-Like I'm Fixin'-to-Die Rag" is here, as are cuts by Janis Joplin, Canned Heat, the Jefferson Airplane, and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band (the latter two are studio cuts). In sum, this is an enjoyable collection of songs that reflects the era more than the festival itself, but then it's a soundtrack. It also feels like a solid memento from the film.
