ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is certainly our most ambitious recording to date. Presented in multi-layered audio collage form and featuring a dozen Runaway originals and 30 tunes from the festival (including Janis, Jimi, CCR, CSN&Y, The Band, The Dead, and The Who), it’s a cinematic, technicolor explosion of music and memories. “Woodstock” celebrates this historic event in a romantic fashion, appropriate to the fantasy it became. Idealistic hope plays a greater role in our presentation than mud or insufficiant sanitary facilities. We commemorate this festival because it allows us to explore the period and the youth culture that gave it such power. Stage announcements, poetry, sound effects, musical montages, radio reports and audience response invites involvement in our production. It’s really an audio movie, allowing the listener to play the role of cinematographer. Once you respond to the record’s initial plea to “Come On!”, you are in for an uninterrupted 80 minutes of concentrated Sixties, featuring the music, attitude and dreams of the era. Take a journey with Runaway Express back to the garden.

quotes from fans who understand....

"I'm holding you responsible for me waking up naked in a tree with balloons tied to my eyelids and the local fire department trying to talk me down…"

"Woodstock captures the essence of the experience. If you were there, it will speak to you deeply and vibrantly. If you thought you were there, it will make that experience even more real. If you weren't there, it will move you in a way that allows you to be there. If you were too young to be there, then this is the next best thing."

"I just wanted you to know how thrilled I am to hold such extraordinary work."

"What an amazing and incredible accomplishment for you to encapture the entire "Woodstock Experience" in 80 non-stop minutes."

"Woodstock... the telling of a concert that defined a generation, and most importantly, needs to be heard today. Jim Ratts and Runaway Express have created a vehicle to remember and reclaim a vision of peace, of love, of freedom, of tolerance and of music... really great music. Let's not forget. Come back to Woodstock... as if you ever really left it. It could happen again."

"If I was forced to live on a desert island for the rest of my life with just one CD your Woodstock CD would be it! I genuinely mean that, without a doubt your CD has to be the most enjoyable CD that I have ever listened to. I own: Blonde on Blonde, Sgt. Pepper, Sticky Fingers, Tommy, Tapestry, Deja Vu, Surrealistic Pillow, etc.… and your CD tops them all."

"… And that noise you heard last night, was us - on our feet, applauding what you have accomplished."
