It topped the Billboard Charts for four weeks and sold two million copies. It sold so well that Cotillion issued a sequel double album of more music from the festival that never appeared in the film. The LPs took the music out of the historical sequence of the festival and re-ordered and edited it for a sense of flow. Whether or not it accomplished its objective has been the subject of much debate and beyond this review's scope.
What is relevant is that these performances signified via their spotty recording quality -- and sometimes dodgy performances -- that there was an amazing array of legendary talent on hand at Woodstock; though not all of it is captured here. Rhino's remastered edition of this set on a double CD is the cleanest edition yet, but even it has problems: the source tapes were problematic at best. It restores the original LP order, features new liners by Gene Sculatti, and has more photos in the booklet.
Disc one is more complex. Richie Havens' 'Freedom' is still thrilling, especially since it is preceded by Sebastian opening the entire set up with another duller-than-dull 'I Had a Dream. Woodstock: Music from the Original Soundtrack and More is a live album of selected performances from the Woodstock counterculture festival.
Originally released on Atlantic Records ' Cotillion label as a triple album on May 11, ,  it was re-released as a two-CD set in Veteran producer Eddie Kramer was the sound engineer during the three-day event. A second collection of recordings from the festival, Woodstock Two , was released a year later.
In , the songs from both albums, as well as numerous additional, previously unreleased performances from the festival but not the stage announcements and crowd noises were reissued by Atlantic as a four-CD box set titled Woodstock: Three Days of Peace and Music. In , Rhino Records issued a six-CD box set, Woodstock: 40 Years On: Back to Yasgur's Farm , which includes further musical performances as well as stage announcements and other ancillary material. Target issued a version exclusive to their stores that included a bonus disc of 14 tracks, including one previously unreleased track, " Misty Roses " by Tim Hardin.
The couple on the album cover were photographed by Burk Uzzle  for the Magnum agency. He took at least two pictures of the couple, one of which shows the woman's face and the other which appears on the cover; however, he never got the couple's names. The advantage of this selection is precisely that it reveals a broader spectrum than the zouk music style that are badly defined.

SM , Aug 28, Sandstrom , Hep Alien and Warren Hawk like this. Scott- I love this this!! I need to read it in much more depth next week. Reason being, I keep looking for which release has the most Who.
I think it's the 40 years on set now. Location: LA. Great post Scott. Learned things I did not know! Location: west milford, nj. Sly Stone's entire unedited performance can be found on the "Woodstock Edition" CD set that came out a few months ago. Great job otherwise, as far as I can tell!
Very nice writeup. Location: Southern, USA. Very nice read. Location: Between the known and the unknown A very informative read that needs a bump among all this Beatles' hysteria.
PhantomStranger , Aug 29, Sandstrom likes this. Location: Houston. Great informative list Scott! Location: Bucks County, PA. A great, great piece of writing. Thanks for sharing it here! Location: Sunshine State. That was great.
Thanks man. Thanks everyone! I really appreciate the positive comments and feedback. The corrections have been duly noted. As I've said, I plan on eventually getting these articles out in book form. A few things: Yes, I am working on a video section--I'm also about to post a lengthy piece on the various recordings--both official and unofficial--made at Woodstock. I did get to talk to Eddie Kramer a few months ago for the book.
I know that there were two recording machines used on-site, which I guess would be two 4-track machines linked together. Kevin--timings are a VERY good idea. I'll start working on that this week! SM , Aug 30, Scott, thanks so much for providing this info, which is very helpful.
I just wish all the bonus stuff QVC, Target bonus disc would get a proper release for everybody, I would love to have these tracks also, but I missed the Target CD sale and I am not re-buying the whole box set on QVC just for the four extra tracks Location: New Brunswick, Canada.
Hey Scott I know a lot of the material here has been replicated on the 4 CD box, but are they different mixes or same as what's found on the 4 CD box. You had also mentioned "I know that there were two recording machines used on-site, which I guess would be two 4-track machines linked together Or else many performances would have been totally unusable.
Using 2 4-track recorders in sync would have been more of a nightmare and seeing how 8-track was easily avaliable in '69, it would have made sense. Also, remember that only 7 of the 8 tracks were used for the audio recording. The last track was used as a sync track for the film crew. I think Kramer stated this in one of the bonus features on the new DVD box.
Location: Bangor, Maine. Scott, That was great! Thanks for taking the time to put all of this together. I'm looking forward to your book! Mike Dow , Aug 30, I don't know about that one. Let us know, OK?Info for Woodstock: Music From The Original Soundtrack And More, Vol. 1. It's almost impossible to regard the soundtrack albums for the Michael Wadleigh documentary Woodstock, simply as music, apart from the event that inspired them or what that event has come to represent.
