It was almost exactly 40 years ago that the most momentous weekend of peace, love and music took place in upstate New York. Many believe that the festival was the unique manifestation of a generation that questioned social norms and political processes and that, as such, the spirit of the event can never be re-created. But at the center of that change was the music, and the music remains.
Though there are no actual Woodstock recordings in the Concert Vault, I did my best here to re-create the entire weekend's worth of music. Of the 32 acts to perform at the festival, there are 24 who have concerts in the Vault. Those 24 are represented over the three individual day's worth of playlists, presented in the order they played during the weekend. I've also tried to choose songs from the artists that were included in their Woodstock setlists, though these were not always available.
Anyway, blah blah blah...Enjoy!
-Missing music from Quill, Keef Hartley Band (there is a concert from John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers that features Keef Hartley on drums, but that is not included here)
-Janis Joplin played with the Kozmic Blues Band
-Because of delays, Jefferson Airplane didn't take the stage until after sunrise on Sunday morning, for which Grace Slick promised some "morning mania music."
