Can There Be TOO MUCH Hendrix? (Part 11)

0
0
Gonna continue with some more badass live shows today......let's lead off with one of my
favorites......"The Jimi Hendrix Concerts" was an "official" release, although a seriously underappreciated one, I love it to death, and, although I'd imagine it WAS, I don't think for certain that I've ever seen it on CD (the version here is a wonderful vinyl rip).....culled from multiple shows, wow......kicking off with the killer duo of "Fire" and "I Don't Live Today" is amazing enough, but also killer versions of "AreYou Experienced?", "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)", "Wild Thing" and more, never really understood why this set wasn't a bit more appreciated than it was, but I love it, it is a fantastic set, despite being a "cut-and-paste" effort, it's still great, and strangely, somewhat hard to find.

Since I've been pretty heavy on the Experience material, maybe it's abou time I threw a little Band of Gypsies stuff ou for ya, the directon Mr. Hendrix apparently would have gone (a bit more funk/soul inspired material)....this set is from New Years Eve 1969, the same show as the "official""Band of Gypsies" album, but with material generally NOT on that particular album...this is GREAT, great stuff, "Machine Gun", "Earth Blues", "Power of Soul" are all great, and of course, we still get stuff like "Voodoo Child (Slight Return")and "Wild Thing", a fine album for anyone who wants the complete Hendri picture, by the way this  is entitled "Live at the Fillmore East" and I think was released about 1999 without checking.....

"Escape From Randall's Island" is a boot from 7/1/70 which has appeared in several different versions on the web that I have see,. I THINK this one is the most comprehensive, but of course I am unsure, not even positive that ALL the material  this disc comes from that show, simply cannot confirm.......plenty of good stuff to listen to here, though, don't get TOO uptight about the specifics, there are a BUNCH of splice-and-dice versions of this show out there....this is the one I happen to have been blessed with.....
