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
Update: On August 2, 2019, Rhino Records released Woodstock – Back to the Garden: The Definitive 50th Anniversary Archive and changed the game forever. With exception to two Hendrix tracks and one Sha Na Na cut, the massive box set contains complete sets from every Woodstock artist—even those long believed lost or never recorded.
Here is the Dead‘s set as it appears on the Back to the Garden archive, including announcements, etc.:
1. Ken Babbs, Chip Monck, et. al. – “It’s the ninth wave”
2. ST. STEPHEN
3. MAMA TRIED
4. Ken Babbs, Country Joe McDonald, Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Pigpen, Owsley Stanley, et. al. – “All us people from the Bay Area, we’re real LSD freaks!”
5. DARK STAR
6. HIGH TIME
7. TURN ON YOUR LOVELIGHT
8. Ken Babbs & Chip Monck – “This is Richie and he’s lost his chick”
