As the historic festival marks its 40-year anniversary, Rhino presents Woodstock - 40 Years On: Back to Yasgur's Farm, a 77-song, six-CD box set that features the most comprehensive lineup of artists who performed at the original festival. The collection is sequenced in chronological order of performance, featuring 38 previously unreleased recordings, including the Grateful Dead, the Who, Tim Hardin, Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe & the Fish, and others. To assemble this musical retrospective of the myth-steeped weekend, the set's co-producer Andy Zax pored over every inch of multitrack tape in search of the strongest parts of each of the 33 sets. "The way we approached all of the material was as if it was a cinema verité documentary -- the raw record of the event," Zax says. In addition to the music, the set offers a considerable amount of ancillary material sprinkled throughout the discs -- stage announcements, psychedelic musings, the sounds of rain, a cameo appearance by Abbie Hoffman, and the graciousness of Max Yasgur's address to the crowd, heard for the first time in its entirety.
