Live at Woodstock is a posthumous live album by Jimi Hendrix released on July 6, 1999. The album documents most of Hendrix's performance with his band Gypsy Sun and Rainbows at Woodstock Festival on August 18, 1969. Hendrix's historic set began at 9 a.m. and lasted for about two hours; played to a dwindling Monday morning audience, the set closed out the festival.[3]


Many of the tracks on this album were released in 1994 on Woodstock. As with the earlier release, rhythm guitarist Larry Lee's medley of "Gypsy Woman" with "Aware of Love" (both songs originally by The Impressions) and his "Mastermind" are not included. "Mastermind" was played between "Red House" and "Lover Man" while "Gypsy Woman"/"Aware of Love" was played between "Izabella" and "Fire". Lee's solo on "Red House" and Mitch Mitchell's drum solo on "Jam Back at the House" have been edited.

A two-disc DVD version of the performance was issued on September 13, 2005, and a single-disc Blu-ray version was issued on November 25, 2008.
