This is the first time I've felt impelled to write a review. Woodstock influenced my tastes in music at the time (I was 18) and ever since. I don't know about anyone else but one of the highlights of the original set was the spellbinding performance of I'm Going Home by Ten Years After. It was certainly one of the highlights of the movie; arguably THE highlight. Amazingly, for some reason, it has been omitted from this, what should have been the ultimate record of the event. There's no space for it on six jampacked CDs. Obviously perfomances by Quill (who?) , Sweetwater (who?) and Bert Sommer (WHO?) rate a higher priority. Nothing else seems to be missing from the original. I'm still shaking my head in disbelief.

That said, it's otherwise a package worth investing in, with some never-before released performances and an informative booklet which includes, for the first time, the playlist for the entire three days. Turn on, tune in, drop out.

If you have Woodstock One and Two then you may not want this but it does have performances by artists not on those albums and extended performances by some of the ones who were. Good piece of nostalgia

It's Christmas,I feel like a wallow in nostalgia,so for the incredible price of £9(!!!) I bought this.Perfect selection?Of course not,there are omissions and inclusions I would personally quibble with,but,on the whole,how can I complain about all of this(£1.50 per disc) for the price?Takes me right back,and remember folks,don't touch the brown acid!

Nearly twenty years before I was born but for music these were the times. A stellar line up. For me personally, Bert Sommer steals the show with a superb vocal display! The bands here cover a music and a time that will not and can not be repeated. Again, for me personally the 60's early 70's bands/musicians were more about the music. Recording 2 albums a year was quite common for many bands, but the quality was still there. Woodstock epitomised so much to so many people. A wonderful collection, a wonderful time!

Beautifully packaged with well written and informative notes.

The actual music content is ok, however some of the track choices are a bit obscure and there is a fair bit of filler.

The remix, which the notes seldom miss a chance to congratulate themselves on, is at best average and on some of the tracks is no better than listening to the 60s album. Some of the tracks are thin and reedy and others sound as if they are being played in a bucket of mud. All of the electronic enhancements available on modern cd players need to be employed along with a higher than normal volume setting to get an acceptable playback quality.

Overall a bit dissapointing

a great tribute to the festival that changed the world(sort of).
loads of stuff on the album that makes great listening.
the sound quality is really good.the track listings and liner notes are very good.
this is right up there with the who's live at leeds album,which i always thought was the best live album ever,
but i think woodstock has just topped it.
buy the album it's a must have.

As has already been posted - a truly great set that so outshines the original double album on vinyl that it should be a no brainer addition to the collection of anyone who likes the original.
