Woodstock: Back to the Garden: 50th Anniversary Various Artists Vinyl 5LP Box Set

50th Anniversary Vinyl 5LP Box Set Documenting 42 of the Finest Performances Recorded at the Landmark 1969 Festival!

Summer 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, the defining event of a generation and one of the most iconic moments in popular music history. Between August 15-18, 1969, more than 400,000 people converged on Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm in upstate New York for Woodstock. Thirty-two acts performed including some of the most popular and influential musicians of the era such as Joan Baez, Richie Havens, The Band, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, Sly & the Family Stone, The Who, Joe Cocker, Country Joe McDonald, Canned Heat and Blood, Sweat & Tears.

The vinyl 5LP box set, Woodstock - Back to the Garden: 50th Anniversary Collection features 42 of the finest performances recorded at the legendary festival! As the cliché goes: If you can remember the 1960s, you weren't there. Back To The Garden provides a way for people who weren't there to remember them. And for anyone who was there, perhaps this will jog their memory.

The time-consuming challenge of reconstructing the concert audio began with locating the more than 60 multi-track reels recorded by Eddie Kramer and Lee Osborne, as well as the 100 or so soundboard reels recorded by the onstage crew. Sorting through those tapes – some of which had been edited, mislabeled or lost – and then reassembling them properly was a process that, in some cases, took years to complete. Producer Andy Zax, sound producer Brian Kehew and mastering engineer Dave Schultz avoided interfering with the tapes as much as possible in order to preserve their authenticity.

Throughout Back To The Garden, you'll also hear the cavalcade of stage announcements made by stage manager John Morris and lighting director Chip Monck, who were drafted as emcees for the festival because no one hired one. You can hear them between songs making announcements about everything from lost keys to warnings about "flat blue acid."
