Next week marks the 50th anniversary of the most important music festival of all time: Woodstock. The fest, whether we’d like to admit it or not, set the bar for every festival that has come since; if you’re going to Coachella each year, you’re, in your subconscious, hoping for something approaching Jimi Hendrix playing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at sunrise. We might not ever get to experience anything as transcendent as that, but luckily, thanks to Rhino and Vinyl Me, Please, we can get close.
In A Vinyl Box Set For The First Time
Woodstock 50th Anniversary
LP Collection (10 LPs) (LTD. to 1000)
Out in a box set for the first time, Vinyl Me, Please has a new 10 LP, tie-dye vinyl box set that combines the four released soundtrack albums from the festival and its accompanying film, Woodstocks 1-4. These four soundtracks are spread across the 10 records, and feature Jimi Hendrix’s legendary performance, along with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young doing “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” Paul Butterfield Blues Band doing “Born Under A Bad Sign,” and performances from a who’s who of who was at Woodstock, including The Who, Joan Baez, Jefferson Airplane, Sly and the Family Stone, and many more. You can buy the box set here.
