Inside the Limited-Edition "Woodstock Experience" Box Set

August 14, 2009 4:56 PM ET

Part of the Woodstock experience in our photo gallery looking back at the landmark festival comes straight from The Woodstock Experience, an awe-inspiring limited-edition box set from Genesis Publications that features rarely seen shots snapped by Dan Garson — who nabbed a press pass as a 17-year-old Woodstock attendee — as well as images by the fest's photographer Henry Diltz. Shepard Fairey designed the set's cover (as well as Rolling Stone's current cover), and promoter Michael Lang contributed his hand-drawn festival map along with contracts and memos. The set's run is limited to 1,000 copies signed by Lang and Arlo Guthrie, who penned its preface. Check out the full set:

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
