These are 2 special "in-house" promotional DVDs.  The first is from the History Channel.  Sealed AND mint conditon.  Includes the full documentary "Woodstock: Now and Then."  The DVD comes inside a plain jewel case with no inserts or artwork.  The qulaity of the audio and video is perfect.

The second DVD contains a special episode of the Dick Cavett Show taped the day after Woodstock.  It's also a promotional DVD.  The DVD is not sealed.  It's in mint conditon and comes inside a plain jewel case.  

1st DVD: “Woodstock: 40 Years Later” explores the frenzied days leading up to and throughout the festival, from how the planners scrambled to find a concert site and the traffic jams that shut down the New York State thruway to the infamously bad “brown acid,” the thunderous rain and mud and, of course, the music. Weaving together first-hand accounts with rare archival images and an iconic soundtrack, the documentary allows those who were there a chance to relive the experience and gives an entirely new generation an opportunity to feel the magic of that time.

The film will also take an important look at Woodstock’s legacy through the eyes of today’s musicians and activists examining why Woodstock and all it symbolizes is still relevant in today’s culture.

2nd DVD: The Dick Cavett Show.  It consists entirely of performances by and interviews with Jefferson Airplane and Joni Mitchell, with Stephen Stills and David Crosby also dropping by. The show was taped hours after the Woodstock Festival ended and, thus, has become known as "The Woodstock Show." And Cavett's show was in part responsible for a Woodstock irony. Mitchell, who would pen the song "Woodstock," did not perform at the festival. The reason? Her manager at the time feared she would miss her appearance on this Cavett show if she went to Woodstock.

The episode captures a unique time in American rock music. The audience is young, many sitting on the floor. Cavett, in his early 30s at the time, is a bit more establishment than the audience or his guests. Semi-seriously, he asks the artists generally, "Do your parents all know where you are?" and follows up by asking Grace Slick what her parents do for a living. Then, when bassist Jack Casady entices the Airplane into a show-closing jam, audience members get to their feet, many dancing, while Cavett stands in the centrally located interview area, looking somewhat bewildered or adrift.

The audience reaction to the jam and the tenor of the artists' discussion seem to capture the emotional resonance generated by Woodstock. The freedom and spirit of the time is also reflected by an incident that would cause a seismic uproar today. Although ABC was concerned about what any rock artist might do or say, the censors were asleep at the switch during the Airplane's performance of "We Can Be Together." As a result, the show may be the first and only one in network television history to air the phrase, "Up against the wall, motherfu*ker." (The same phrase was causing controversy with Airplane's record label before the band managed to have the song released in its unexpurgated form on Volunteers three months later.) Throw in the psychedelic light show accompanying the Airplane's opening performance —
