Woodstock Music and Art Fair was a historic event held at Max Yasgur's 600 acre (2.4 km²) dairy farm in the rural town of Bethel, New York from August 15 to August 18, 1969. Bethel (Sullivan County) is 43 miles southwest of the town of Woodstock, New York, which is in adjoining Ulster County.

To many, the festival exemplified the counterculture of the 1960s and the "hippie era." Thirty-two of the best-known musicians of this time period appeared during the sometimes rainy weekend. Though attempts have been made over the years to recreate the festival, the original event has proven to be unique and legendary. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest concerts in music history and was listed on Rolling Stone's 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.

The event was captured in a successful 1970 movie, Woodstock, and Joni Mitchell's song "Woodstock", which memorialized the event, became a major hit for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The concert signaled the end of the so-called "Flower Generation."

Does anybody know if there are woodstock versions of the above songs on here, I am particularly looking for CSN&Y and Santana's soul sacrifice, oh and Sly & the family stone.....heck I'm just looking for it all!! Anybody got any ideas?

    Good work. It's great to see someone being creative with the tools last.fm have provided. Even better if you could play the tracks in the order they were played at the festival? Must have taken some time to compile too?
