Can There Be TOO MUCH Hendrix (Part 12)

Continuing to roll through these live sets, first up a vinyl rip of the patchwork "Hendrix in the West", a once comercially available set which is, to be honest, quite a bit short of spectcular, pulling tunes from various venues/dates, included here mostly because of my weakness for vinyl, and because that when released on CD, alternate versions of "Blue Suede Shoes" and "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" were included because the original mistakenly included versions of these two numbers from The Royal Albert Hall show, instead of the San Diego Sports Center. Since the rights to the Albert Hall show were in dispute, alternates were used on reissue. So, if you have only have heard the CD version, this one will be somewhat different.

Next we have a double disc set from 1969 at Oakland, a very typical set list for that year, "Foxy Lady" stretches out to a much greater length than tht song normally did, and the version of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" journeys on for nearly 20 minutes as Jefferson Airplane bassist Jack Cassidy joins the band.

Wrapping up a rather brief post (I'm taking a little trip to Florida next week, and, in a perfect world, would get enough posts written ahead so that I can continue daily posts, unlikely to happen but I'm gonna try) we have from 1970 the Isle of Wight show, Hendrix' final UK performance as he would pass away less than a month later. Good to get some live versions of "Dolly Dagger" and "In From the Storm", all in all a decent set.
