This album is good, but it ain't THAT good. I am a big fan of Ravi Shankar's work and a fan of the Woodstock Festival as well, but I bought this CD several years ago for seven dollars. I am glad I bought it, but if it had not been an economy disc, I would have passed it by. If you do not have this CD, wait for it to be re-released (if it ever is). It is better not to have this album at all than to pay a rip-off price. First off, this may have been recorded at Woodstock, but it is not rock, pop, folk or any other "popular" music. Also, because it was recorded at an overcrowded concert in the middle of a farm, during a rainstorm, the recording itself is not the best. That being said, this album contains some brilliant playing. Ravi is spectacular, Alla Rakha is unbelivable, especially on his solo, and the interplay between them at the climax of Raga Manj Khamaj is breathtaking.
