The former vinyl release of this double CD was my first approach to the famous event and since then, that it has become a real obsession to get everything about it (full performances, different releases and memorabilia)
I actually love this set, BUT it just give you a very small part of the 210 plus songs performed at Woodstock. Also it's presented in the wrong order, it's uncomplete and edited. Nevertheless I still recommended it as an starting point.
You won't find here other artists that actually performed at the event such as: Ravi Shankar (there's a deleted CD containing the full performance); Sweetwater (1 track on a deleted CD); Incredible String Band (just some seconds on a DVD); Keef Hartley (unavailable performance info.); Quill; Mountain (see Woodstock 25 ann., and Woodstock two); Bert Sommer (1 track on DVD); The Band (see Woodstock 25 ann., and Woodstock two); Blood Sweat and Tears; Tim Hardin (only "If I were a Carpenter" was available later); Grateful Dead; Melanie (see Woodstock 25 ann., and Woodstock two); Credence Clearwater Revival (see Woodstock 25 ann.); and Janis Joplin (see Woodstock 25 ann.).
Let me intoduce to you some remarks of the set:
1. John Sebastián - I Had a Dream
Third artist to appear or at least forced to. He was just hanging around. His full set is on "Faithful Virtue" CD on Rhino Recs. (long deleted). This track is actually live.
2. Canned Heat - Going Up the Country
They performed on Saturday. Their full performance of 5 songs is not available (just parts on video).Read more ›
Without question the best:
2. Joe Cocker
3. Sly and Family Stone
4. Richie Havens
5. Jimi Hendrix
6. Ten Years After
7. Balance of the set
I'm not sure if it was the event, the mass of people or realizing in the seventh grade that something like this could happen that hit me like a ton of bricks. Frankly, this is some of the finest live music that has been recorded at one of the greatest gatherings to ever take place.
