Annotations for Max Said Yes! : The Woodstock Story


Baker & Taylor
When young people want to get together to hold a giant music celebration, they ask many farmers if they can use their land to hold it, but everyone says no except one man, Max Yasgur.

Dufour Editions
From an idea to a reality facilitated by Farmer Max Yasgur's YES! to open his land so kids could have a concert. Includes lyrics to the song written by Joni Mitchell "Woodstock"

With lively verse and illustrations reminiscent of the era's album covers, this tale commemorates the historic three-day music festival that became a symbol of the peace and love mantras of an entire generation: Woodstock. Dairy farmer Max Yasgur made rock 'n' roll history when he allowed a group of flower children to gather on his farm. Thousands from across the land flocked to listen to the rock groups of the day--the Grateful Dead, Richie Havens, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Santana. They pitched a tent village, danced joyfully in front of the giant stage blasting music celebrating the Aquarian age; and when it was over, they set out to rebuild the universe.
