Recording information: Bethel, NY (08/18/1969). Photographers: Dan McCoy; Leonard Eisenberg; Allan Koss; Peter Menzel; Barry Levine. Jimi Hendrix was the headliner at the 1969 Woodstock Festival. Ironically, he got to go on around dawn on Monday morning, by which time there were only (...only) 60,000 remaining parishoners--the last act. Hendrix's Gypsy Sun & Rainbows emerged from a communal summer of jamming in the upstate arts community, but these other musicians are largely inauidble.

Rolling Stone (1/25/95, p.51) - Voted Best Reissue Album in the 1995 Reader's Poll. Rolling Stone (8/19/99, p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...LIVE AT WOODSTOCK somehow humanizes this deity....a glimpse of an artist consumed by the pursuit...and underscores the supreme difficulty of his nightly quest." Q (9/99, p.132) - 3 stars (out of 5) - "...[a] loud and enthusiastic set, where a new band add a smidgeon of funkiness to the Experience sound...which on the plus side features the superb 'Star Spangled Banner', a zippy 'Lover Man' and some hilarious introductions..."
