“As the cliché goes: ‘If you can remember the 1960s, you weren’t there.’ BACK TO THE GARDEN provides a way for people who weren’t there to remember them. And for anyone who was there, perhaps this will jog their memory,” according to Rhino Entertainment, who just announced in this video, a new boxed set of ALL the audio from the original festival. The audio CD set (complete track list here) includes the opening address by Swami Satchidananda and as Rolling Stone described it, “The massive 38-disc box includes nearly every note of music played during the festival’s three days in 1969.”
The boxed set features 38 CDs, 432 tracks, Blu-ray of the Director’s Cut of the Woodstock film, Woodstock Hardbound Book by Michael Lang, and much more—all housed in a box designed by Grammy®-winning graphic designer Masaki Koike. The limited edition (1,969 copies!) releases in early August and is expected to sell out. But, you can pre-order here. Special thanks goes out to Andy Zax, the Los Angeles producer and archivist who co-produced the set with Steve Woolard, for his incredible vision and for collaborating with Integral Yoga Media/Archives on Swami Satchidananda’s track.
