So sit back and ENJOY. No doubt some pictures I post will disappear and because of You Tube many songs I originally posted have already been removed, so I won’t find all the footage of all the actual Woodstock appearances. But I’ll do my best to show 100% of it as I can.

First Version and video of Woodstock is my favorite. And is playing
