The master tapes from the legendary Woodstock Festival have emerged for sale for £600,000 - but the successful bidder will only be able to play them in the comfort of their own home.<br />
<br />
The over 700 minutes of audio features iconic performances from Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Joe Cocker and Janis Joplin.<br />
<br />
They were made by producer Eric Blackstead who put together the albums Woodstock (1970) and Woodstock Two (1971) to capitalise on the festival's huge success.<br />
<br />
Only four copies of the master tapes exist, with the other three residing in the archives of record labels.<br />
<br />
The tapes are being sold with British auction house Just Collecting. However, reproduction and distribution rights are not included in the purchase, so the buyer will get the 'physical ownership' of the items only.
