Live at Woodstock
- Artist: Joe Cocker

The third day of the historic Three Days of Peace & Love, otherwise known as the Woodstock Festival, August 15 to 17, 1969, found Joe Cocker and the Grease Band greeting the new day and several hundred thousand attendees with nothing less than a rousing, electric set. Joe and band had actually gone back to England after a tour of the U.S. in support of his debut album and had to be quickly rounded up and shipped back across the pond for the date. The singer performed songs mostly from his first two albums (WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS and, due 3 months hence, JOE COCKER!). And, of course, the incredible impact vocally and visually of Joes performance that bright Sunday afternoon of the debut LPs Lennon-McCartney title song became his first international calling card. However, the other ten songs of the singers legendary show that day, including covers of Bob Dylan, Ashford & Simpson, Ray Charles, and a pair of originals, remained unreleased until now, in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Woodstock. A wrong rectified.
