Happy Anniversary to Woodstock!

The legendary fest opened 43 years ago today.  Me, I had to work at my summer job at a daily newspaper a couple of hundred miles west--but kept tearing news about it off the AP wire.  The first day was folkie-focused and included the sadly much-forgotten Tim "Reason to Believe" Hardin, another too-early death.  No footage for him from the festival but I did find this completely unexpected rarity:  Tim doing his great song "Lady Came from Baltimore" with...'60s fashion icon Twiggy! And she ain't bad.
