Elliott Landy’s Woodstock photographs

Though the current Woodstock 40th anniversary “celebrations” (aka commercial exploitation) leave me cold, the new edition of Elliott Landy’s book, Woodstock Vision, looks like a must-have.

It’s a feast of 300 of Landy’s wonderful photographs. The famous Dylan shot – hat, guitar, vintage car – dominates the cover.

It’s not obvious how many Dylan pics are in the book, but the Landy website has 50 Dylan thumbnails, many of which were new to me:

Thanks to Jim Linderman whose blog alerted me to the new Landy book:
