May 11, 1970 -- 46 years ago the Woodstock album was released in record stores. It contained three discs. For those who attended the festival in 1969, it was a fond memory. For those who wished they could have been there, it was a close second.

21 songs were placed over six sides of the three-album set. Songs included Jimi Hendirx's Star Spangled Banner and Purple Haze, Wooden Ships and Suite: Judy Blue Eyes by Crosby, Stills and Nash, The Who's Were Not Gonna Take It, The Fish Cheer by Country Joe McDonald, Going Up the Country by Canned Heat and The Jefferson Airplane's Volunteers.

It only took two weeks to achieve gold status. There have been several additional albums, and remakes that followed over the years. For this week's Classic Rock Pick, let's check out Santana performing one hell of a version of Soul Sacrifice at Woodstock in 1969.
