Format/Rating/Source: LP - D- - Audience

Date/Location/Venue: 08/17/69 - Bethel, NY - Woodstock

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1975 - USA - Unknown

Comments: Bad... I had this one and "Gather Your Wits" (Dallas '69) and couldn't decide which one was worse, so I got rid of both of them. Somehow, this one seemed to make its way back! Unless you like the cover, don't even bother. There's much better stuff out there.

Date/Location/Venue: 08/17/69 - Bethel, NY - Woodstock

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1993 - Germany - Silver Rarities

Comments: Very good, mono soundboard (no stereo soundboards from Woodstock have been released to date). The speed is about 7.5% too fast, but the sound is very clean.

Track Listing: Heaven & Hell, I Can't Explain, It's A Boy, 1921, Amazing Journey, Sparks, The Hawker, Christmas, The Acid Queen, Pinball Wizard, Abbie Hoffman Incident, Do You Think It's Alright?, Fiddle About, There's A Doctor, Go To The Mirror, Smash The Mirror, I'm Free, Tommy's Holiday Camp, We're Not Going To Take It, Summertime Blues, Shakin' All Over, My Generation, Naked Eye

Format/Rating/Source: CD - B - Soundboard

Date/Location/Venue: 08/17/69 - Bethel, NY - Woodstock

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1993 - Germany - Hallmark

Comments: Unfortunately, this CD suffers the high frequencies cutting in and out. Speed is too fast by ~7.5%. Apparently, whoever created this CD had a bad tape deck. "Starring The Who" (CD) or "The Violent Side" are better.

Track Listing: Heaven & Hell, I Can't Explain, It's A Boy, 1921, Amazing Journey, Sparks, The Hawker, Christmas, The Acid Queen, Pinball Wizard, Do You Think It's Alright?, Fiddle About, There's A Doctor, Go To The Mirror, Smash The Mirror, I'm Free, Tommy's Holiday Camp, We're Not Going To Take It, Summertime Blues, Shakin' All Over, My Generation

Date/Location/Venue:  08/17/69 - Bethel, NY - Woodstock, 04/26/71 - London, UK - Young Vic Theatre

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1995 - Japan - CF

Comments: I found this to be the best sounding of the Woodstock '69 boots. My only complaint is that they didn't fit all of the Woodstock performance on one CD. The speed is fast (but I haven't measured exactly how fast). The Young Vic material actually sounds better on other boots.

Track Listing:

Woodstock '69:
Heaven & Hell, I Can't Explain, It's A Boy, 1921, Amazing Journey, Sparks, The Hawker, Christmas, The Acid Queen, Pinball Wizard, Do You Think It's Alright?, Fiddle About, There's A Doctor, Go To The Mirror, Smash The Mirror, I'm Free, Tommy's Holiday Camp, We're Not Going To Take It, Summertime Blues, Shakin' All Over, My Generation

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2020 - UK - Eat To The Beat

Comments: 3 CD package trying to pretend its a legit release of "radio broadcasts", vs. recordings from videos, BBC, Woodstock boot and a combo of officially released tracks ("View From A Backstage Pass") from San Francisco, 1971, sprinkled in with unreleased, lesser quality tracks. Overall a nice package, but pointless since all of the contents have been released elsewhere.

Date/Location/Venue: 09/29/69 - Amsterdam, NL - Concertgebouw

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1990 - Belgium - Unknown

Comments: Great cover! Good soundboard recording, but the CD versions sound better. I'm not a big fan of this particular concert, as all the copies I've heard to date seem to suffer from the same bad mix - whereas Pete's guitar is very high in the mix and Keith's drums are relatively low, giving you the impression of a "watered down" performance (vs. just a bad mix).

Track Listing: Heaven And Hell, I Can't Explain, Fortune Teller, Tattoo, Young Man Blues, Substitute, Happy Jack, I'm A Boy, Overture, It's A Boy, You Didn't Hear It (1921), Amazing Journey, Sparks, Eyesight To The Blind, Christmas, Cousin Kevin, The Acid Queen, Underture, Do You Think It's Alright, Fiddle About, Pinball Wizard, There's A Doctor I've Found, Go To The Mirror Boy, Tommy Can You Hear Me, Smash The Mirror, Sensation, Miracle Cure, Sally Simpson, I'm Free, Welcome, Tommy's Holiday Camp, We're Not Gonna Take It, Summertime Blues, Shakin' All Over, My Generation

Comments: This recording of the concert appears to be <mostly> remastered. The biggest issue with most of the Amsterdam recordings is the lack of bass and excessive guitar sound (poor mix/mastering). This version has a much more balanced feel after "Heaven And Hell"...

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1995 - Japan - Hiwatt

Comments: An interesting alternative to "Live At Leeds" in terms of time period and feel. Most of the sound quality on this boot is excellent, with an occasional dropout, thin sounding track, or downright "wobbly" ("A Quick One While He's Away). However, on balance, this is one of the better ones to have.

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1992 - Italy - Big M

Comments: While the CD cover says, "Live In San Francisco 1969", this show is actually the Fillmore East. While not a complete show, the sound quality on this CD is excellent, but only AFTER you "fix" it. (The speed needs to be corrected by ~ +3.5% (~+8.5% on "Summertime Blues" & "Shakin' All Over") and the left and right channels need to be swapped.)

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1999 - EEC - Dandelion

Comments: Another case of "a boot of a boot" (See "Cops & Robbers" above). However, the cover is worth the price alone! The speed is ~8.5% too fast throughout most of this CD and then changes to ~6% for "My Generation" and "See Me, Feel Me". Channels are reversed on the DC tracks. Speed and channels seem fine on the "Hull" tracks (which are actually not "Hull" but from an unknown source).

Track Listing:

DC 1969 *: Overture, It's A Boy, 1921, Amazing Journey, Sparks, Eyesight To The Blind, Heaven & Hell, I Can't Explain, Fortune Teller, Tattoo, Summertime Blues, Shakin' All Over, My Generation, See Me, Feel Me

Comments: An 8 CD package featuring 5 concerts (all previously released).
