It was certified Gold on May 22, 1970 and 2x Platinum in 1993.
The couple on the album cover were photographed by Burk Uzzle for the Magnum agency. He took at least two pictures of the couple, one of which shows the woman's face and the other which appears on the cover; however, he never got the couple's names. In 1989, Life Magazine identified them as a then 20-year-old couple named Bobbi Kelly and Nick Ercoline, who married two years later and raised a family in Pine Bush, New York, just 40 miles (64 km) from the festival site. That claim has since been disputed by a woman named Jessie Kerr from Vancouver Island, and her friend John.
On the LP release, side one was backed with side six, side two was backed with side five, and side three was backed with side four. This was common on multi-LP sets of the time, to accommodate the popular record changer turntables.
Most of the tracks have some form of stage announcement, conversation by the musicians, etc., lengthening the tracks to an extent. Times are listed as the length of time the music was played in the song, while times in parentheses indicate the total running time of the entire track.
^The performance on the album picks up mid-song at the very end of the "We're Not Gonna Take It" portion and then finishes with the "See Me, Feel Me" and "Listening to You" sections. The final 1:50 of the track is an emergency announcement and the statement that declared "It's a free concert from now on".
^In the CD version, the first disc would close with this track, with a 1:30 long recording of the rainstorm.
^The first three minutes of the track is the "Crowd Rain Chant", a chant started by the crowd as an attempt to stop the rainstorm.
^The final 34 seconds or so of the track is a speech by Max Yasgur, praising the crowd for coming to the festival.
^"Instrumental Solo" was retitled and re-edited when Hendrix's Woodstock show was released more fully in the 1990s. The improvised, fast solo section immediately following "Purple Haze" was heavily cut in the original Woodstock film and soundtrack, and most of the track here is what would later be titled "Villanova Junction", a slow bluesy ballad with the band joining in the background. The uncut version of the solo was restored in the director's cut of the Woodstock film and on the Hendrix album Live at Woodstock and titled "Woodstock Improvisation".
