Like I enjoy all Hendrix. On every level. I enjoy the heavy stuff, the bluesy stuff, the psychedelic stuff, the soulful stuff (which I feel is most represented on this performance) and everything in between. Music would not be what it is today if Jimi didn't exist. As you already know, he was a genius beyond geniuses. I believe it was you who mentioned "If God needed guitar lessons...", correct?
All of these songs have been released before in various forms, but this release is the first official release of the complete 1st show on CD (yes, the version I bought) or LP (I realise they are supposed to be superior, but I haven't owned a record player in years) and the sound is much cleaner than all the bootleg recordings I own of this show. All of the tracks here but 3 (out of 11) have never been on official releases before now.
I've read that some people at this show (I'm only referencing the first performance, not the other 3) in particular were disappointed because they were expecting a "greatest hits" style performance, which they didn't get. (I know that you are aware.) No Foxey Lady, Purple Haze, Watchtower, Fire, et cetera. No playing the guitar with teeth or setting it on fire. I just hope that those same people came around and realised that the performance they were witnessing was historic and hopefully they grew to appreciate what they saw.
Just curious: I understand that you were at the 1st show, but did you actually get to see any or all of the other 3 performances? If so, bonus times the amount of other shows you attended.
Also, I just noticed this photo is in need of some serious cropping. There's exposed arse-crack just above her right elbow.
She is a beauty. How are you enjoying that Hendrix CD ?
Me too 13.
I've always thought of Amy Adams as the cute, shy, girl next door type.
But that photo above makes think of her as the sultry, seductress, vixen type.
A large busted red head. I'm in love.
