The Woodstock Experience by Sly & The Family Stone was recorded in August 1969 at the world famous Woodstock festival.
I don’t understand the marketing but this is a two CD set. The first CD is the studio version of the Stand album, the second is the Woodstock recording. There is a series of these Woodstock albums including Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin and Johnny Winter.
It’s taken us a long time to get a live Sly & The Family Stone album because this was first released in 2009.

Ummagumma is the first Pink Floyd live album recorded in 1969 with early psychedelic space rock classics.
It was a double LP with one LP live and the other recorded in the studio and featuring compositions by the individual members of the group. Only one song, Grantchester Meadows is really worthwhile.

Live At Woodstock is the most comprehensive recording of Jimi Hendrix performance at the Woodstock festival on August 18, 1969.
A previous album, simply called Woodstock was released five years earlier with fewer of the songs. Radical editing means that three of the musicians in the Gypsy Sun and Rainbows group were mixed out on the Live At Woodstock version.

Live At Monterey is a reworking of the Jimi Plays Monterey recording of Jimi Hendrix live at the Monterey festival in June 1967 with the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
It’s the same set but with different mixing.
This concert is famous for the time during the last track – Wild Thing – Hendrix sets his guitar on fire and then smashes it. That explains the album covers.
