Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Simply put, this whopping ten-CD collection contains all five deluxe volumes in Sony Legacy's Woodstock Experience set. The artists -- Sly & the Family Stone, Johnny Winter, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, and Janis Joplin -- are each represented by a double-disc collection: the first album in each set is a classic studio album from the same period as the Woodstock Festival -- in Sly's case, it was Stand!, in Santana's it was their debut set which wasn't out yet, in Joplin's, I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again, Mama!, in the Airplane's it was Volunteers also not out yet, and Johnny Winter's representing his debut as well as a preview of his forthcoming Second Winter LP.

Each of these classic albums is the standard remastered edition but packaged in an LP sleeve. The second disc in most cases -- the Airplane, whose set was much longer than anyone else represented here is the exception -- is the complete, unexpurgated Woodstock performance wonderfully remastered and mixed by Eddie Kramer. For classic rock fans this is the mother lode; however, given the price tag, most folks will more than likely pick and choose the volumes by their favorite artists and let the box slide for now.

    Woodstock plus albums of the era

    This box collects the five Woodstock Experience albums. What you should know is that for each Woodstock performance they have added an important album along with it. So for Santana you get his Woodstock performance along with his first Santana studio album. With Johnny Winter's woodstock performance, you get his first studio album. With Jefferson Airplane you get their woodstock performance along with their Volunteers album. With Janis Joplin's woodstock performance you get the "I got dem ol kozmic Blues again mama" album. And with the Sly Stone woodstock performance you get his Stand album. So for those who already have those classic studio albums from these artists it might seem a pain to buy them all over again just to get the complete Woodstock performance of each artist, but the Woodstock CD's are so good, and the remastered classic studio albums are so clean, that it should not stop you from getting this box. However, it would be nice if they made the Woodstock CD available without the old studio album, but I have not heard of any plans to do this.
