The (Kind Of) Complete Woodstock: The Grateful Dead

The Dead’s Saturday night set is long and noodly, which I reckon is what Deadheads like.

I’ve always heard that the band didn’t think too much of it, though, and that’s why the Grateful Dead didn’t make the original Woodstock album or movie.

Regardless, the Dead’s complete set is available on a few bootlegs.  The best I’ve found is Grateful Dead: 1969-08-16 Woodstock, Bethel, NY (Warlock Stock).  Here are a couple of non-bootleg options:

1. St. Stephen
2. Mama Tried (Youtube)
3. Dark Star (Woodstock: 40 Years on: Back to Yasgur’s Farm (CD))
4. High Time
5. Turn On Your Lovelight (Woodstock: The Director’s Cut Ultimate Collector’s Edition (DVD))

Your official Woodstock soundtrack song count to date: 74

Next week: Creedence Clearwater Revival

    • I will say this for the Grateful Dead: their graphics were unquestionably among the best. I wore a “Blues For Allah” pin in the middle of my punk and new wave bands just because the art was so cool.
