Woodstock is probably the most famous rock festival ever held.
It happened at Max Yasgur’s farm in the Catskills near Bethel, New York, from August 15 to August 18, 1969 and it featured a who’s who of rock artists.
It was popularised by a movie and a movie soundtrack and that is the album that is being looked at here.
In recent years, a number of live albums have been released featuring teh full sets of groups that appeared at Woodstock.
Live At The Apollo 2 is a live album by James Brown recorded in Harlem, New York in June 1967.
The original Live At The Apollo recorded in 1962 was a huge success. It presented James Brown as the soul singer.
By 1967, he had started experimenting with funk rhythms and this presents more of the James Brown sound that you probably expect.
