Listening Theme 56 – Woodstock Festival

by Paul Adams on Saturday, April 9, 2011 at 3:34pm

Hi all,

For the next couple of weeks I’m going to focus on the Woodstock Festival of 1969. The idea being to go through the list of acts (in performance order – starting with Richie Havens and finishing with Hendrix) and listen to two or three albums from each.

There are a few acts there that I’ve not heard of before so I’m looking forward to this one. As with my Live Aid theme last year I’m going to try to stick with albums that were already released at the time (although that may not be possible, I’ll see how I go). So let’s begin with Richie Havens (someone I’ve only recently started listening to) and his ‘67 album ‘Mixed Bag’. Let me know if you’ve got any other recommendations.

Cheers,

Paul

the small print:

If you’re new to this little project of mine it’s basically an opportunity for me to listen to and discover music and artists I wouldn’t normally listen to by asking my Facebook friends to give me their recommendations (albums and artists that influenced them maybe). I choose a particular music genre or theme or artiste and listen to just that for a week or two. I’ve discovered some great music over the past couple of¬†years (see my previous notes and you’ll get the idea) and I value any contributions you can make.

If you’ve been tagged, you are under no obligation to take part but if you can spare a couple of minutes to recommend some great albums I’ll be most grateful and if you’re reading this and not been tagged (nothing personal) please feel free to participate anyway, the more recommendations the better.
