VH1 The Leak Previews Sly & The Family Stone Woodstock Experience

VH1 and Rhapsody are giving you the opportunity to hear Sly & The Family Stone Woodstock Experience before you can buy it through The Leak. Simply to go VH1 The Leak to preview this great album. And look for all five Woodstock Experience releases on Tuesday, June 30.

This summer celebrates the 40th Anniversary or what Rolling Stone called “the most famous event in rock history”, of the original Woodstock Music & Art Fair. In the summer of 1969, 500,000 people and 32 musical performances came together in Bethel, New York, for an event that sufused our culture, politically and socially, as much as musically.

During that summer, five of those acts, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Johnny Winter, Santana, and Sly & the Family Stone, had also recorded albums for Sony Music Entertainment labels, and for the first time next Tuesday, the Woodstock Experience series combines those albums along with the music from their festival performance.
