Editorial Reviews

Originally released in 1970 as a triple-LP, MUSIC FROM THE ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK AND MORE: WOODSTOCK topped Billboard's pop albums chart for four weeks, and was a Top 20 R&B album as well. As potent a musical time capsule as ever existed, it captures the three-day, 1969 concert event that united close to half a million members of what came to be known as the 'Woodstock Generation.' Rhino's deluxe, 40th anniversary, 2-CD reissue of this sprawling and era-defining sonic document-featuring CSN&Y, The Who, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, and much more is remastered from the original analog
soundboard tapes. It s the ideal way to take a trip back to Yasgur's farm and performances that shaped music and popular culture for years to come.

Customer Reviews

Good to hear all them songs again.
Axe
And yes, the tracks are remixed and remastered from the original 8-track master tapes so they will appear in their unedited form.

I have listened to the CD's and it brought back all of the memories!

When I saw that the Woodstock soundtrack was going to be remastered and reissued along with the new DVD set I was hoping that the previous edits of certain songs would be done away with finally. I mean this is CD technology we're talking about here, not the limited space of a vinyl record (don't get me wrong, I LOVE VINYL). I got my set just this last week and cued up Santana's "Soul Sacrifice." The edits remained. BUT, as I listened to the 2-CD set in it's entirety, sounding clear and better than ever I might add, my initial disappointment with the edits soon disappeared. The "Soundtrack and More" 3 LP/2 Cassette/2 CD set is an experience all it's own and as I listened, I got so caught up in the music that no "edit" ruined it for me one bit. I hear a box set is due out in August and maybe that set will be REMIXED and remastered so as to include the songs in their unedited form. But as for the ORIGINAL Woodstock Soundtrack, the same one you purchased in the summer of 1970, this is the best it's ever sounded. Thank you Rhino for leaving it the way it was.

EPILOGUE - A six-CD box set IS due out on August 18th! And yes, the tracks are remixed and remastered from the original 8-track master tapes so they will appear in their unedited form. BUT, one problem. The 11 minute version of "I'm Going Home" by Ten Years After will not be on the box set (for reasons unstated Ten Years After didn't clear the track for inclusion). So if you still have your 4-CD 25th Anniversary box set, KEEP IT! However, we will all be treated to Canned Heat's full length "Woodstock Boogie," all 30 minutes of it! And lots and lots of previously unreleased performances from the festival's lesser known acts like Bert Sommer, Quill, and Incredible String Band.

"Sea Of Madness" is performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash, And Young as indicated in the liner notes. However, this performance is not from the Woodstock Festival, but from Fillmore East, one month later. This scam was pulled on the original album release as well. The original correct recording can be heard on the 6-CD box set, Woodstock: 40 Years on: Back to Yasgur's Farm (6CD, Limited Edition).

I have been fascinated with the 60s and 70s since I was a little kid (22 years old now) and I remember listening to this album as a middle schooler and loving the Hendrix and everything else. Listening to it now still stirs up the same fascination and love of the music of the era. Some of the songs might not have top-notch sound quality, but I think that adds to the recordings and makes them feel much more raw and thrown together, much like the festival itself. The CSN (and sometimes Y) songs on this album are great to listen to, especially if you are very familiar with the originals. Also, all of the dialog and singing about protesting, peace, and stopping the war really lets you know what and when you are listening to. I am sure some people will scoff at me for not being old enough to really know about how this all happened and the significance of it; they are probably right, but I feel like I can still appreciate (to an extent) the gravity of the situation and the beauty of the music. If you like this kind of music and want to have a taste of one of the pivotal moments in popular music history, get this CD. Worth every penny.

Since it's been 40 yrs, I wanted to get a better understanding of the music from Woodstock. A recent summer issue of the Smithsonian magazine about the iconic Woodstock picture & story of Nick & Bobbi sparked my interest! I really like the CD, and have listened to it a lot. I wish I would've been there in August, 1969 to hear all the groovy music live. :D

The 2009 Rhino remastered "Music from the original soundtrack and more-Woodstock" is an album that I would advise anyone who loves the movie and does not own the soundtrack to purchase. The sound is excellent and the collection includes many of the now legendary performances from the festival, including Richie Haven's great opening to the festival with "Freedom", Crosby, Stills, and Nash performing "Suite:Judy Blue Eyes", The Who, Santana's show stealing "Soul Sacrifice", Sly & The Family Stone's medley (probably my personal favorite), and Jimi Hendrix's show closing performance that cemented his legend. Also included are various announcments and dialogue, including Max Yasgur's message to the crowd. A great soundtrack to a great movie and event in music and American history. I would highly recommend this album.

I have the three album set and have used many of the tracks on various mix tapes. I found the track splitting here to be more than unfortunate--for example the Joe Cocker intro to Little Help is inexplicably divided between two tracks so you need an mp3 editor to re-splice it.

are the songs still edited?!?!
I don't know. I haven't heard my copy yet, but if I can get to it soon and hear, I'll let you know. Unfortunately, the CD (and "Woodstock 2") come in those thin, crappy cardboard containers, instead of a digi-pak or hard-plastic jewel case. Ugh. Good luck in trying to retrieve the CDs... Read More
