This song, by the rock group Mountain, which is sung by bassist/record producer Felix Pappalardi, with lyrics by his wife Gail, had no name at first. But then, after the band sung the song at the Woodstock concert in 1969, they named it “For Yasgur’s Farm,” after the Jewish owner of the farm where Woodstock was held (Max Yasgur). Ironically, Yasgur was later blacklisted in the New York State farming community where he lived (Bethel, NY), due to his allowing Woodstock to be held at his farm. It caused massive property damage to several farms, including Yasgur’s. Pappalardi, who also produced records for the band Cream, was later shot and killed by his wife. (Two members of Mountain are Jews: guitarist Leslie West and drummer Corky Laing).

[Song, 3 and 1/2 minutes].
