Woodstock and The Band Box Sets To Be Released

(Classic Rock) The 40th anniversary Woodstock six-disc box set and The Band's The Last Waltz four-disc set are to be made available in a format that makes them more affordable to fans. Rhino UK will launch both 'fat pack' sets on September 25.

Originally released in 2009, Woodstock 40 Years On: Back To Yasgur's Farm is a selection of the best moments from the 33-set, three-day iconic festival that took place in 1969. It includes performances by Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Grateful Dead and many others including the sound of rain, stage announcements and musicians' banter.

Meanwhile, The Last Waltz, recorded at The Band's final show in 1976, contains all the audio that appeared on the 2002 edition, featuring guests Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Dr John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Neil Young and others.

The 'fat pack' format is described as "a neat way to own these incredible compendia of work from some of the greatest songwriters of our time." more on this story
