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:

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
