This Week's Interesting Music Releases (August 18th, 2009)

This week is the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, and the 6-CD em>Woodstock: 40 Years on: Back to Yasgur's Farm captures the best of the legendary music festival. The box set features 38 previously unreleased live recordings from The Grateful Dead, The Who, and many more artists.

If you are feeling nostalgic, the Jimi Hendrix Live 1968 Paris/Ottawa box set copmes with 2 CDs and a t-shirt.

As the summer gets hotter, the music release lists get shorter. Still, I can definitely recommend Anna Ternheim's Leaving On a Mayday, Box Elders' Alice and Friends, and Patrick Wolf: The Bachelor (which finally gets its stateside release) among this week's list of new releases.

The reissue of the week is definitely the UK legacy edition of The Stone Roses' self-titled debut album, but I can wait until September 8th for the 3-CD, 3-LP, & DVD US edition.

What new music can you recommend this week? What's on your shopping list? Have I left any interesting releases off the list?
