I remember being so completely blown away seeing the movie when it first came out. Pretty amazed that most of the stuff still moves me still. Anyway, what are your personal favorites? Tops for me is Santana with Sly right behind. Most startling single performance was/is Jimi's version of the Star Bangled Banner which not only epically reflected on the tumultuous state of the country but in the end, was a prophetic statement about the ending of the ideals of a generation when it seemed the party had just started.

Ten Years After ! Santana . Joe Cocker and The Who killed me when I first saw the film. My friend and I sat through it twice we were so blown away by it . It was the first time we'd seen some of the bands before . No internet / youtube yet so it was a revalation of sorts . I'll never forget that day !

Santana was riveting-just to think he was "peaking" on mescaline when they went on....

I was/am a big Mountain fan so I enjoyed that set and the Who

Joe Cocker "With A Little Help From My Friends"

Probably the best cover of a Beatles tune that may actually
surpass the orig.

I just read a long article on the woodstock recordings and most of the artists hated their performances..in fact the who said it was the worst performance of their career and they were embarrassed by them...apparently they had LSD spiked in their drinks or something like that and could barely perform.....i think a lot of peoples evaluation of the performances were more tied up in the surroundings and history of it all than anything having to do with the performances....

Seeing this movie on PBS in the early 80's inspired me to play guitar - particularly Hendrix. I had never heard him before that (I was young). I was also blown away by Ten Years After. I wore out their spot on my VHS tape. We used to watch it and laugh at the bass player who was bopping his head in double time even in the quieter parts of the song - and Alvin Lee was just fantastic.

Leo Lyons was known to do that all the time!!

I love how after TYA finishes the tune, a huge watermelon rolls from nowhere onto the stage. Where the hell did that watermelon come from? I wonder if Alvin Lee ate some of it after their set!

at the ripe age of 20 i went to woodstock with 8 people in my 1964 ford van.when we left there were 4 of us left, the music i remember the who, janis,csny, airplane , country joe and creedence.we were not close to the stage until hendrix came on.that started me on the never ending love of live music. and i still have the tickets i picked up on the ground there.it was a weekend to remember.

Although the new box set is great in sound quality and contains a great share of unissued recordings, it is by no means definitive. It's still missing several previously released tracks and some others that have been presented elsewhere (mostly on bootleg). So it's not time yet to throw away any of your previous Woostock albums and box sets.

Santana, The Who, and Sly Stone were the performances which really did it for me. But anyone seriously interested in Woodstock needs to get the Hendrix at Woodstock DVD if you don't have it, 57 minutes of nothing but Jimi. Just mindblowing stuff...........hard to comprehend where he would have taken things if he were alive today. Thinking about it makes me think of Derek Trucks, maybe the closest anyone has come to the genius of Jimi.
