This week marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most beloved cultural events of the 20th century.  Woodstock marked the way people could celebrate, en masse, in a peaceful and joyful time together on this planet.

And the B-Sides is here to help you celebrate the universal karma that was three and a half days of peace and love.

Johnnie and I believe the event was so significant that we have dedicated two shows to Woodstock, its music and history.

The B-Sides features the Free family tree including four songs from the seminal 70's band, cuts from Bad Company and solo work from Free's original guitarist, Paul Kossoff and his band Backstreet Crawler.
