With thousands of hopefuls unable to witness the 50th anniversary of the famous Woodstock music festival, people were understandably let down and wanted something in its place.
While a Philadelphia radio station played the entirety of the gathering’s recordings concurrent with the time and date of the original 1969 August show, there’s now a way that fans can take the recordings with them. Evan Weinstein has put together a complete compilation of all the songs played at the inaugural Woodstock music festival, in order, from start to finish. The massive playlist features Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, and many more.
Woodstock 1969’s complete Spotify playlist includes 267 songs and 23 hours worth of music and to put that into perspective, it would take an entire day to hear all of the sonic beauty within. Fifty years later, this music has stood the test of time and it’s amazing to listen back. Check it out below.
