"There must be a better chronicle of the Woodstock festival than this CD. Many of the songs are severely edited. Santana's wonderful "Soul Sacrifice" is greatly shortened (you can get the full complete performance on the 30th anniversary CD of Santana's debut album), as well as Ten Years After's amazing performance of "I'm Going Home". "I'm Going Home" was MUCH longer than the version that's on this CD. They completely butchered a classic performance.I really can't recommend this CD, it could have been so much more. They could have at least included the complete songs without editing them so drastically. It would have been much better as a 2-disc set. I have to give them kudos for including Richie Havens and Canned Heat, though.If you want the best of Woodstock, then the 4-disc Woodstock box set would be your best bet."

"Great songs, lousy recording. Unfortunatly the entire CD is a flat, no-fi transfer. Editing could have been better to. 3 minutes of obnoxiuos crowd chant before "Soul Sacrifice" taints slightly one of the greatest songs in Rock and Roll history. Engineer dude must have fallen asleep while putting this CD together. Break out your old WS Lp if you still have it, you'd be better off."

"Overall this is a good selection from the first Woodstock-Double-CD (or triple-LP), but it should be retitled:"Best of Woodstock, Sly Stone not included...".So my advice is to buy the Double-CD, because Sly's performance (almost 15 minutes, so that is maybe the reason why it isn't included on this CD) is absolutely essential!"
