Analyze the counter-culture effect of Woodstock on the American music industry in the late 1960's. Evaluation Of Sources "Acomplishments of Woodstock of 69" was the source we used to get most of the information. It was written by a scholar with book sources and a interview of a man who was attending the festival. We couldnt base the information on a primary source but a secondary source from interview. This document was written to inform people on the festival and not to swing view points so it can be taken in any viewpoint. Our other main source "The Road To Woodstock" written by Michael Lang who was the co-creater of Woodstock 69'. It is a primary source from the man who himself was at Woodstock. It is generally limited because it from the man who created it and not a actual preformer or attendee. Its a valuable source since its mainly primary source. "Hippie" organized by Barry Miles was another source we used. In this book, there are many short articles about various things between 1960-71 including Woodstock. "Singer-Songwriters" was the article's name and it was written by James Taylor. So it is a secondary source. Written in early 1970, this was just after Woodstock ended. The purpose was to inform others [Hippies, bystanders, everyone who cared] about his interest and his style in music. The author probably wrote this being influenced by music and wrote this during the era of Woodstock. Obviously, this is from the author's point of view and he is giving his opinion on the subject. arrow roulette Conclusion Analysis Lang, Michael, and Holly George-Warren. The Road to Woodstock.
