Warner’s upcoming Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music Blu-ray Disc set showed up on my doorstep this past week and a review is already well underway.
Per Warner’s request a review cannot, and will not, be published until Tuesday, May 26. You’ll find our review here bright and early that morning.
What I can do right now is take you through a quick pictorial tour of the elaborate packaging and “what’s in the box.”
There are four total layers to the Woodstock Blu-ray Disc packaging starting with a translucent outer sleeve taped shut at the top and bottom. There’s a small portion cut out from the sleeve on the front so you can touch the “leather fringe” from the second layer.
That second layer is the coolest as the aforementioned leather fringe is on top of a thick, heavy case. A patch is stuck onto the front and the limited edition number of 140,000 total sets is on the side. It is a striking case reminiscent of something plucked from Woodstock’s era.
The only downside to this leather case is the skirt part of the fringe is cut into strips that make it difficult to get back into the plastic case. That is, unless you open the bottom of the plastic case instead of the top so that the solid part of the leather case can go in first.
The third and weakest layer is a flimsy yet ornate cardboard box that slips inside the leather case. Rammed into this box are all the pack-in goodies and the fourth layer, the standard Blu-ray snap case that houses the two-disc set.
Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music (Ultimate Collectors’ Edition) will arrive June 9 on Blu-ray and DVD. Click here to pre-order Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music on Blu-ray for $48.99 from Amazon.com.
