That's gold alright. Looks pristine.

Congrats on having it.

1969 was certainly a year for high flying.

Great doco..hearing all the voice overs from actual attendees and staffers
Amazing to see how calm,farm owner Max Yasgur was after his fields were devastated  Shocked

That doco is still available to watch on SBS On Demand..really worth a watch folks

Wowsers! Tickets to the biggest drug and orgy fest in our  history.
I wonder how many abortions and illegitimate bubs resulted from that shindig, aside from introducing thousands of teenagers to drugs and in particular LSD.

Having lived in a small Victorian country town we heard about hippies and Woodstock but I never did see a real hippy until the 1980s. All us young blokes did like the idea of making love and not war but most of us never got a chance at either. We actually laughed at the idea of being a free loading hippy but some of the music was good.

Yeah I did like some of the music and in particular the sound track from Easy Rider by Bob Dylan.(I think ?) Too bad it was about a couple of dead beats who travel through the American Southwest and  carrying the proceeds from a cocaine deal. ......But then they introduced the Harley Chopper to the world. So that was a good thing aye!.

I used to play Born to be Wild as the first track of any big trip away. It got me in the mood pretty quickly.

'If six was nine' is probably my favorite Hendrix song of all the great stuff he did. One of the most unique guitar players of all time, on one of my favorite albums. I used to play that soundtrack in my motorbike shop in the seventies. It still gives me goosebumps.
