Fav. Tracks: Woodstock Two – Various Artists

jimi-hendrix-woodstock-two-4231451 Woodstock Two – Marrakesh Express (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young).

This is an old vinyl double-album dating back to 1971 and is a second release of material from the famous Woodstock Festival and, as such, is perhaps not quite as good as the first album, but still has some important bands and music and remains an important recording of this historical event that gave birth to all other music festivals (and saw the development of the peace movement so tightly associated with hippies and the youth of the time in general).

Picking a favourite track from this album was not too difficult and I immediately chose this classic hit from the brilliant Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.  I love the catchy tune and the lyrics are brilliant and tell the tale of that early 70s era.

Catch a bit more of the era with the closing song sung by most of the artists who appeared and featuring a track made famous by the musical stage play “Hair”
