The Oscar-winning 1970 concert documentary Woodstock celebrated its 40th anniversary a few years ago, but Warner Bros. is already re-revisiting. The new three-disc Blu-ray set, fittingly titled Woodstock 40th Anniversary Limited Edition Revisited, features the film’s four-hour director’s cut, two discs of extras, and a souvenir pack filled with reproductions of articles on the concert from Life magazine and The New York Times, a pair of reproduction concert tickets, and an embroidered iron-on patch with the classic dove-and-guitar logo.

While 40 years seems like a long time for footage from the festival to remain unreleased–especially when you consider that nostalgia for Woodstock seems to have kicked in before everyone had even exited the grounds–the set features a clutch of previously un-issued performances from some of the lineup’s biggest names (as well as Sha Na Na).

Ten Years After's guitarist Alvin Lee, dead at 68 after surgery complications

British rock guitarist Alvin Lee, founder of the band Ten Years After who burst to stardom with a memorable Woodstock performance, has died. He was 68.

A statement posted on Lee’s official website said he died Wednesday unexpectedly from complications following a routine surgical procedure. Lee’s manager, Ron Rainey, said the guitarist died in Spain.

“We have lost a wonderful, much loved father and companion,” said the statement signed by his daughter Jasmin, wife Evi and former companion Suzanne. “The world has lost a truly great and gifted musician.”

The Nottingham, England-born Lee founded the band Ten Years After in 1967. The group first toured the U.S. in 1967, but its popularity exploded following Lee’s rousing performance of the song “I’m Going Home” at Woodstock in 1969. Lee’s epic and electrifying solos on his Gibson guitar for the 11-minute performance were immortalized in the documentary film about the legendary festival. READ FULL STORY
