RE-UP: Jimi Hendrix live in New York 1968 - 1CD - March 2 - late show


Hunter College, New York City, NY 2 march 1968; 2nd Show
Aud; 1st Gen - Digitally restored, Phase & Speed corrected

1 "Tax Free" (5)
2 "Foxy Lady" (22)
3 "Like A Rolling Stone" (5)
4 "Killing Floor" (11)
5 "Red House" (14)

Total time: 25:24

The "best" previously circulated version of this recording was formerly believed to be a master clone, but new info shows that this is not correct. Recordings such as the one included on ATM 039 "Hunter / Hilton" are in fact just 2nd Gen at best, so this 1st Gen version IS an upgrade, and the "best" version currently in circulation. The reason for the Master / 2nd Gen confusion was probably that the lineage of the old recording was listed as DAT Master > CDR. However, this so-called "DAT Master" wasn't actually a real Master, but merely a DAT copy of a 2nd Gen tape (at best). Anyway: There's no new music here compared to old version, but the recording starts a few seconds earlier, so it's marginally longer. As was the case with the Fillmore East 1968 upgrade, this recording has been doing the rounds at JPIO this summer.

Artwork included.
