Bert Sommer - a holy grail album in my collection: He Played at Woodstock

Bert Sommer played at Woodstock.  According to multiple sources - Bert was the third act up on the first day.  Friday was acoustic and folk music day.   Based on the available daylight when he appeared in the film - he probably went on around 7 pm.  He likely played a :45 minute set that included these ten songs:  Jennifer, The Road to Travel, I Wondered Where You Be, She's Gone, Things Are Going My Way, And When It's Over, Jeanette, America, A Note That Read, and Smile.  He was joined on stage by Charlie Bilello on bass and Ira Stone on guitar, organ, and harmonica.  He played a ten-song set.  He followed the band Sweetwater, and Tim Hardin came on after Bert.
