All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
In a year filled with them, Rhino offers its own homage to Woodstock's 40th anniversary by rolling out this lavish six-CD box set. It can be argued that this is merely a cash-in, but a number of things should be considered when critically looking at a set of this size, covering one of the most important events in rock music history. Perhaps the most significant aspect of this set is that it contains tracks by almost every single artist who appeared on the Woodstock stage in their proper sequence. The exceptions are the Band and Ten Years After, the Keef Hartley Bandas well as the introductory speech by Swami Satchidananda. The reason for this is simple: Imagine the ...

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
In a year filled with them, Rhino offers its own homage to Woodstock's 40th anniversary by rolling out this lavish six-CD box set. It can be argued that this is merely a cash-in, but a number of things should be considered when critically looking at a set of this size, covering one of the most important events in rock music history. Perhaps the most significant aspect of this set is that it contains tracks by almost every single artist who appeared on the Woodstock stage in their proper sequence. The exceptions are the Band and Ten Years After, the Keef Hartley Bandas well as the introductory speech by Swami Satchidananda. The reason for this is simple: Imagine the nightmarish lisencing process the set's compilers and producers had to go through to make this happen. This challenges the assertion of the original soundtrack recording. We also hear from artists such as Sweetwater, Tim Hardin, Johnny Winter, Mountain, Ravi Shankar Quill, the Incredible String Band, the Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Joe Cocker, and Blood, Sweat & Tears, and, of course, stage announcements by Chip Monck, John Morris, and Wavy Gravy. In presenting a historical document of this proportion there are some interesting judgment calls to make. Producers Andy Zax, Mason Williams, and Cheryl Pawleski researched the original set lists exhaustively and present them here along with the music and their choices. This is terrific not only because we can "see" what we're missing, but because those of us who aren't necessarily rock historians will finally know. The sound, which was done by Zax and mastering engineer Dave Schultz, is as good as it can possibly get. The book is a monster, loaded with photos and featuring Bud Scoppa's wonderfully researched and presented liner essay, whose chapters account for each day, act by act. Ultimately, however, it all comes down to the music. While we only get "Dark Star" by the Dead, we get a bit more music from the Who. The three tracks by CCR are all monsters, and hearing the five tracks by Crosby, Stills & Nash and then Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young all in correct sequence between BS&T and the Butterfield Blues Band makes total sense. One of the more welcome surprises is the expanded set by Sha Na Na. Fans of individual acts here will be delighted or complain about the treatment individual artists receive. Even though there is a bit more music, the Who still get short-sheeted but we do get to hear the infamous row between Pete Townshend and Abbie Hoffman, as do the Dead. We didn't need more of Arlo Guthrie than we already had, and why we still needed three tracks by Melanie or more by the completely unmusical Country Joe & the Fish is a mystery. We could have used more of the Incredible String Band or Richie Havens! But these are individual complaints. The set as it stands is the ultimate document -- thus far -- and will likely be for some time to come.

    Idiocy Above in first review

    How can one review something that has not been released yet and worse show your ignorance by not knowing who the Incredible String Band was? This collection will be for serious fans of music and not the obvious dilettante above. Before you comment publicly, do your research about music.

    A great box designed for the Woodstock fan

    This Great set seems to be designed for the Woodstock fan who already has the Movie as this Box concentrates more on the acts that didn't make it into the Movie or got left out of, edited, or minimal representation in the earlier audio releases. Yet it also includes many (but not all) key elements from those earlier releases. This box set is a revelation! They present the acts AS they actually performed that weekend, warts and all, and it's a joy to listen to. Of all the releases that have come out this year in celebration of the 40th Anniversary, this box is the best of the bunch. The included book is good, not great, but a fun read. It does include the much needed list of Acts and songs in their correct order. The original intentions of the makers (as expressed in the book) was to create a 30 CD box with the entire 3 days included, but trying to get the legal permissions established may keep such a mammoth box from seeing the light of day for another 40 years. I do agree with an earlier reviewer that "Goin Home" from Ten Years After should have been included, but what they have given us in this 6 CD set is certainly cause for celebration. It gives the best representation of the event so far. There is room for improvement and hopefully when the 50th comes around, we will get even more of the 3 days in audio and in video (hope I'm still around in 2019) but this set will keep me happy for the next decade.

    Wounderfull memory on the history of rock!

    Well produced music, original sound tracks, comments which back a listener to challening time of 60's and 70's, to great wish to make this world better. It is amazing to hear very young voices of Joan Baez or Janis Joplin, non-crashed voice of Joe Cocker and many others. It is the music for ever!

    You saved me 60 bucks!

    What, no Ten Years After!?! And way too many "Country Joes" and "Incredible String Bands" (whatever that is?).

    Thanks Mr. Zax, you saved me 60 bucks!
