Special Woodstock edition, marking 45th anniversary of the famous fest coming later this week. So, below, all from performers who performed, and all live, though not necessarily from Woodstock. (See, earlier today, my two cuts from The Band.) First up, The Who, talking bout their/our/my generation. Next, Creedence (like The Band and Janis Joplin, they were cut of the film version) visit the bayou.
Next, Janis at Monterey on the night that made her career. Many forget the opening day Woodstock was folkie-oriented, including the great Tim Hardin. Here he is a few years later in a live duet with...Twiggy.
