Book Description Newport Folk Foundation, New York, 1968. Soft cover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL 1968: PROGRAM. Published by the Newport Folk Foundation, New York, 1968. Softcover Program, side-stapled, 8.5x11", 44 pages. Scarce memorabilia from the legendary 1968 Newport Folk Festival. The 1968 festival marked the early appearances of Janis Joplin with Big Brother and the Holding Company (Janis Joplin died in 1970 at the age of 27), Tim Buckley (Tim Buckley died in 1975 at the age of 28), Richie Havens, Janis Ian, Joan Baez, Taj Mahal, Elizabeth Cotton, B.B. King, Doc Watson, and Junior Wells, among others. The program provides brief biographies and small photographs of many of the performers. GOOD condition. There is a nickel-size scrape to the upper corner of the front cover, probably from the removal of a label; the covers have some creasing to the fold from handling, light soiling, and some edge and corner wear; internally nice, one page has ink on its front margin - but that was a printing error and as issued - overall the pages are just lightly used and still tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A solid, nice copy of this rare original Program of the 1968 Newport Folk Festival. 1968. Ah, that was the year of great music and great hopes. Then came 1969, 1970, 1971. 2015.
