The Photo on the cover of the 1970 Woodstock Soundtrack album…represented the love, care and protection of not only the event but a generation. In a 2009 interview for the New York Daily news, the featured couple said they remember nothing about the photo taken by Burk Uzzle.  Nick and Bobbi Urkaline were from the area and knew the backroads around the Woodstock festival.  They had driven their 1965 chevy station wagon within five miles and hiked the rest of the way on foot.  Their memories of the event were mostly of the rain, the lack of toilets and the body odor.   Afterwards, while at a friends house listening to the soundtrack album, nick noticed the picture on the cover…and said “hey that’s our blanket”…paused and then said…”Hey that’s us!”
