We've all seen it over and over, or lived it, but who do you think shredded or captivated the audience the best at Woodstock?
Obviously the boys had a tough go of it, electrocution issues and what not. Just lookin' for discussion.
I think that under the radar, Ten Years After tore it up! Plus late night, CSN&Y being newbies on a stage of such proportion.
Richie Havens, Country Joe, Janis, Jimi, the Who, I could spout, but I want to hear from everyone else.....

I voted for Jimi based on the question. Jimi playing the Star Spangled Banner is etched into the collective psyche of an entire generation. Memorable.
Personally I think The Who was stunning. Perhaps the pinnacle of the event. In the movie when they start "See Me, Feel Me" with the still photos....that's Rock and Roll divinty.

Maybe it should'nt be a poll question, just threw that out there.
Richie Havens staying on and covering for whoever wasn't ready was awesome.
CSNY playing Wooden Ships, N Suite Judy Blue Eyes while saying they're scared shitless, for their 1st performance to a real crowd (understatement), in the dark of night.
Country Joe got the sing-along going.
and of course Jimi.

That performance put Richie Havens on the map. Before that he was a folkie. So great...you feel dosed when you watch him walk off the stage still furiously playing. wowsville.

Jimmy

Star Spangled Banner - Purple haze

This is just the flag of Woodstock on my opinion!

Never heard the GD set at Woodstock

Embarassed

Don't worry about it! There are about 1000 other concerts of theirs I would recommend you listen to first before that abortion of a show.

I believe that abortion is not the correct word here. That would mean that they purposly fucked it up. Kinda like some of those 3 song sets the JGB pushed on us in 82-84. Ya know, went something like this:

Promoter: Uh Jerry it's about 2 hrs after you said you would go onstage what do you think?

Jerry: Well I'm watching the Gong Show and Gene Gene the Dancin Machine hasn't made it yet and I ain't going on until he does! And don't think I'm playing 1 minute past 11 o'clock cuz there is an awesome rerun of the Mod Squad coming on then.

No, Woodstock was a messy miscarriage.

Tough choice,


My 2 faves are Ten Years After and Sly, with sly over the top from an energy POV.

I am sorry the Dark Star from Woodstock is worth listening to, STAY AS FAR AS YOU CAN FROM LOVELIGHT!!!!! I dig longer versions of songs but Jesus H Christ, you would think with Weir being electrocuted the whole set that they would have tried to get off that stage as fast as they could. If you want to listen to a big festival Dead show check out the Montery Pop Fest. The Dead were between The Who and Jimi. The Dead knew what they were up against and they tried their damnest to pull it off, which I personally think they did.
