WOODSTOCK 40TH ANNIVERSARY: New Rhino Boxed Set Full of Unreleased Bonuses



Woodstock: 40 Years on Back to Yasgur's Farm

$79.98 CD

In celebration of the landmark festival’s 40th anniversary, Rhino is set to release WOODSTOCK—40 YEARS ON: BACK TO YASGUR’S FARM BOXED SET, the most comprehensive collection of Woodstock performances ever.
Sequenced in the chronological order in which they occurred, the 77-song, six-CD boxed set contains 38 previously unreleased recordings.
After a labor-intensive process of reviewing every inch of multi-track tape, co-producer Andy Zax selected the very best from each of the 33 sets and furthered the collection’s authenticity by including stage announcements, set banter, the sounds of rain, a cameo appearance by Abbie Hoffman, and the graciousness of Max Yasgur’s address to the crowd, heard for the first time in its entirety.
Also for the first time ever, the complete and accurate set lists will be included in the box’s booklet.
