Woodstock 69

Max Yasgur's Farm
Woodstock Festival
Bethel, NY
Aug 16th, 1969

Although this show has been proclaimed by the band as one of their worst performances and many, I suppose would agree with them. I on the other hand have always loved this performance, maybe it is my secret love for flawed or damaged things or the fact that this show was one of my first introductions to the Dead. Many people search for the definitive versions or the shows with the highest energy and those shows are great, but for me this show will always be special for what makes it not definitive.
