RE-UP: Jimi Hendrix "Scandinavia volume 1" - 6CD

JIMI HENDRIX and the Experience - Scandinavia Vol.1 (6 CD Limited Edition Box Set)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Presented here are complete concerts sourced from amateur recordings with the exception of the 5th September live radio show which is now in improved sound quality over its previous
release on Stages. What you will hear on these concerts from Sweden and Denmark is the raw energy of those early shows and the excitement of fans perhaps seeing Jimi for the first time
and being blown away by the Experience. You will hear what they heard; you will become part of the audience, you will share their Experience. For us, this more than makes up for what it
might lack in recording quality; we believe these tapes have adequate clarity and deserve release on their own merit. You will also hear occasional problems that Jimi faced with the mismatch
of volume levels between voice and instruments due to inadequate, low-powered public address systems for his vocals and sometimes unreliable guitar amplifiers. Although on first glance the
set-lists look repetitive, one has to bear in mind that Jimi never played the same song in the same way twice. He liked to keep things fresh and was a master of improvisation, hence his love of
jamming.

  1. Purple Haze on Disc 5 (Copenhagen) is corrupted.
