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.
