    The Band - Music From Big Pink

    The backing band of Bob Dylan starts a 'solo' career? That can't be bad! The Band created music that defined a rather new rock sound. But in 2009 the music sounds like many rock bands have already made it after them... Again I wish I could have heard these albums in the list at the moment they came out. An advantage however is that this music still sounds fresh, not dated at all. It's music that creates a hot and sultry atmosphere, as if you're in Southern America somewhere... a mix of country and rock and high voices and excellent guitars...

Though attempts have been made over the years to recreate the festival, the original event has proven to be unique and legendary. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest concerts in music history and was listed on Rolling Stone's 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.

    The event was captured in a successful 1970 movie, Woodstock…
