The Dutch Woodstock 1970 2CD/DVD setIn April, Dutch Woodstock 1970, a new look at the June 1970 Kralingen Music Festival, was released as a 2 CD and 1 DVD set.

The concert, held in a neighbourhood of the Dutch city of Rotterdam, had in the region of 120,000 in the audience, and a video giving a taste of it - Stamping Ground - has been around for many years. Other than the likes of Al Stewart, Marc Bolan, The Byrds, Santana and Jefferson Airplane, the film included Pink Floyd performing Set The Controls, and A Saucerful of Secrets live, albeit in quite an edited fashion.

But quite a lot of music was recorded that wasn't in the film, and this new set is said to include a lot more of the live material than has been heard before. We've not seen or heard this new set, so we don't know if the Floyd tracks are finally presented in full. In the concert, Set The Controls ran for some eleven and a half minutes, and Saucerful was almost twenty minutes long! We've been promised a review copy, so once that arrives, we will take a very close look - and listen - for you all.

In the meantime, if you don't already have a previous version of this, and you fancy giving it a try, you can order through all the normal outlets, including Amazon UK,,, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Espana and Amazon Italy.
