Longtime readers of this blog will recall that about a year ago I reviewed an excellent book on the legendary 1969 Isle of Wight Festival called Stealing Dylan From Woodstock. It was written by one of the organizers of the festival, Ray Foulk, and was one of the most interesting and enjoyable books I've ever read, really capturing a special moment in time while giving a glimpse of what the concert promotion business was like in those heady, more innocent days of the 1960s. I'm in the process of readying a review of its soon-to-be-released sequel, The Last Great Event, which chronicles the even more legendary 1970 Isle of Wight Festival.
So why does this warrant a new post? Well, right now the folks at Medina Publishing, who produced both of these great books, have a special sale going on right now to celebrate the 75th birthday of the 1969 Festival's headliner, Bob Dylan!
On May 23rd and 24th, you can get the print edition of Stealing Dylan From Woodstock for 25% off by using the special offer code DYLAN75. Just head straight to their site by clicking HERE and grab this fantastic book...what a deal! If you need any more convincing, go read my review again, but I can assure you that if you're a fan of Dylan, the Who, or any of the other bands who played at that first festival, or just a fan of the 1960s in general, this is a book you will thoroughly enjoy.
