Most widely held works by Who (Musical group)
Woodstock : 3 days of peace & music by Michael Wadleigh( visu )
45 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in English and held by 2,168 libraries worldwide
For three days in the summer of 1969, a rock concert was held on an upstate New York farm, and 400,000 people attended -- far more than were anticipated, far more than paid, far more than could be fed or sheltered or cared for after injuries or drug overdoses. It rained, there was mud, all traffic in and out was gridlocked, and the music continued, night and day. "Woodstock Nation" existed for three days and was absorbed into American myth. As depicted in this film, in roughly chronological order, the elusive memory of that nation is cemented into a pungent social documentary. Few documentaries have captured a time and place more completely--in the full flower of its moment, youth, and hope--than this one. It is also one of the finest musical documentaries ever made--if not the best--utilizing adventurous camera work, daring editing, frame mirroring, freeze frames, blackouts, and multi-angle perspectives widening the 1.33:1 image to 2.20:1 to capture flamboyant, riveting, career-defining performances, within an amazing chronicle of how the musicians interact onstage as audience members react to the musicians' performances

Who's next by Who (Musical group)( Sound Recording )
88 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,220 libraries worldwide
Who's Next is the fifth studio album by English rock band The Who, released in August 1971. The album has origins in a rock opera conceived by Pete Townshend called Lifehouse. The ambitious, complex project did not come to fruition at the time and instead, many of the songs written for the project were compiled onto Who's Next as a collection of unrelated songs. Who's Next was a critical and commercial success when it was released, and has been certified 3x platinum by the RIAA
