Woodstock 2
The Best of Woodstock (1994)

Woodstock 2 (or woodstock two as on the cover) is the second live album released of the 1969 Woodstock Festival concert. The 2-LP set contains more material from many acts featured on the first Woodstock album with additional performances from Mountain and Melanie.

Woodstock 2 was originally released in 1971 as a double LP set and was re-released as a double CD in 1994. Also in 1994 the songs from both albums, as well as numerous additional, previously unreleased performances from the festival, but not the stage announcements and crowd noises, were reissued on a 4-CD box set titled Woodstock: Three Days of Peace and Music. An even more comprehensive 6-CD set, Woodstock: 40 Years On: Back to Yasgur's Farm, was issued by Rhino Records in 2009.

  • 1 According to the booklet included with the Woodstock 2 – 40th Anniversary 2-disc set CD (remastered from original analog tapes) "(f)or many years, it was rumored that Mountain's Woodstock Two selections weren't even from the festival. But the New York trio, then consisting of guitarist Leslie West, bassist (and former Cream producer) Felix Pappalardi, and drummer N. D. Smart, did in fact play these versions of "Blood of the Sun" and "Theme for an Imaginary Western" at Woodstock, in a set sandwiched between the Day 2 slots of Canned Heat and the Grateful Dead."
