TOTAL MUSIC MAGAZINE: Dutch Woodstock Compy

One of the most successful of the first generation of European rock festivals was the Kralingen Music Festival, which was held less than a year after Woodstock and spread over three days in June 1970 (26th, 27th & 28th). The line-up, a stellar mix of the upper echelons of both British and American rock royalty included Tyrannosaurus Rex, The Byrds, Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Soft Machine, Family, Canned Heat, Al Stweart, Country Joe, Dr John, headliners Pink Floyd and many more. The festival was filmed for a movie and some, but certainly not all, of the footage originally surfaced on the Stamping Ground video however Gonzo, who have something of a repuation for unearthing this sort of stuff, have uncovered plenty that didn't ever feature and they have bundled it all together on The Dutch Woodstock (2xCD+DVD) boxset and we have six of 'em to give away.

To get your hands on a copy of The Dutch Woodstock just answer this idiotically simple question…

Who was the gravel gargling vocalist of Family?

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
