    A trip back in time

    I purchased this cd set for my sister as a birthday gift. I had it delivered and when she opened it and saw what it was she squealed with delight. She said it wasn't what she would have thought of in a million years but when she saw it she knew it was the perfect gift. She got in her car, rolled the windows down, cranked up the cd and went back in time to being a carefree teenager. The sound, the music, everything was just great. Totally recommend to any "boomer" or anyone wanting to revisit that era.

    Woodstock CD

    I bought the movie soundtrack in honor of its anniversary and was immediately hooked! Because of my age I was too young to appreciate the event when it happened so I have to live it through the music. I have the albums but the CD's were far superior. It gave me such a hunger for more that I returned to Barnes and Noble and bought the DVD! It was great and I recommend both to everyone, you actually feel like your there!

    I recently found a listing of the original Woodstock reel to reel, this matches it.

    Don't know what happened to the tape, but this sure sounds somewhat the same. This might be a little more tinny but by far and all it is nice to hear these sounds again.

    40 years ago when Hendrix ended the festival, we thought we would be doing festivals three or four times every summer for the rest of our lives and constantly re-creating the spirit of the gathering, the camaraderie, and most importantly the music. This remaster, even more than the directors cut movie, has allowed me to re-create that sacred moment in my soul and even feel the mud ooze between my toes again!!! I cannot believe that I am hearing things for the first time with music that basically I have been listening to for my entire adult(???)life . Just a magnificent job on the mastering, especially considering how difficult the original recording process was. This essential music, the announcements, and the crowd really brings the crowning moment of the '60s generation to life. If you were at Woodstock, either in person or in spirit or really want to get the feel of what it was like to be part of the "Woodstock Nation," this two disc set is absolutely essential, the sound far better than I expected, and having said all that,the price actually a bargain!!! 100 years from now, people will be listening to this music when they look at the 60s!!!!!!!
