RE-UP: Jimi Hendrix "The Ross Tapes #6 - 2CD - various recordings

These tapes are from Ross. He was known for low gen newly circulated genuine Jimi studio jams and concerts. His Maui tape
sounds like no other and the most aesthetic to my ears of all sources. The songs on most of his stuff is at the right speed. Not sure what gen his stuff is, but it sure sounds clean n neat.

Now this aughta prove interesting.. My friend knew Ross better. He actually bought tapes from him, I didn't(except for Maui).
He saw him several times. I had bad luck and didn't go to the conventions at the same time that he did. Since he only went
in summer and every other month I guess. Anyway one day my friend tells me that Ross is switching to cdr from cassettes. At
the same time bootleggers at conventions were getting squeezed by all the folks that could burn discs. The "real" silver
bootleg cdeeze were drying up rapidly too. Anyway Ross made a final offer one summer by providing an 11 tape series of all
his studio stuff. My friend only had enough money to buy 4 of them. He took #2, 3, 6, & 7. Shortly after buying these tapes
Ross generally dissappeared from the scene after doing cdrrz for a spell.

NOTE:
Guess what? I went to the trouble to turn up the long gap in Gypsy Boy. This tape version has the entire "gap". I knew the
music was there bc I turned it up once on another source and heard it there. I got it turned up something like 900% with an
EQ setting to keep reducing the uppers and lowers and amplifying the middle. I coaxed it out into the open, but just barely.
I did it with minimal clipping too, which was not a small feet. ;-) Now once I could hear it, I discovered that about the
first half was repeated. And so was the last half of the second half repeating into the music immediatly after the break,
for 1.2 seconds, before another edit unrelated to the break ruins everything. So once those were chopped out it sounded
alright, I guess. At least I think I know what Jimi was playing during that big gap now after all these years of wondering.

NOTE:
I sped-up #16-Astro Man-5 exactly 8%

                      

RE-UP: Jimi Hendrix "The Ross Tapes #3" - 2CD - various recordings

These tapes are from Ross. He was known for low gen newly circulated genuine Jimi studio jams and concerts. His Maui tape
sounds like no other and the most aesthetic to my ears of all sources. The songs on most of his stuff is at the right speed.
Not sure what gen his stuff is, but it sure sounds clean n neat n complete. These pre-date DAT tape too.

Now this oughta prove interesting.. My friend knew Ross better. He actually bought tapes from him, I didn't(except for Maui).
He saw him several times. I had bad luck and didn't go to the conventions at the same time that he did. Since he only went
in summer and every other month I guess. Anyway one day my friend tells me that Ross is switching to cdr from cassettes. At
the same time bootleggers at conventions were getting squeezed by all the folks that could burn discs. The "real" silver
bootleg cdeeze were drying up rapidly too. Anyway Ross made a final offer one summer by providing an 11 tape series of all
his studio stuff. My friend only had enough money to buy 4 of them. He took #2, 3, 6, & 7. Shortly after buying these tapes
Ross generally dissappeared from the scene.

NEW: Jimi Hendrix live in New York 1970 - 1DVD - January 1 - different than official release!!

So, here as promised the RAW UNCUT reel-to-reel B&W footage from the Band of Gypsies fillmore concert on 1 1 1970.
It's 53 minutes of video, all shot from the balcony on a reel-to-reel recorder by Jan Blom.

This is quite different from the commercial DVD release:
It is the uncut direct footage of the high balcony camera angle ( the Blom angle) .
It is in PAL and transferred with lesss noise reduction, therefore a little more grain and drop-outs , but in my opinion more sharpness and detail in the blacks than on the BOG DVD, which was released in poor NTSC.
I do apologize for the TimeCode, as this DVD was made from a direct VHS from the mastertapes.

NEW: Eric Burdon & Jimi Hendrix live in London 1970 - 2CD - September 16

The guest appearance of Jimi Hendrix with Eric Burdon and War at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club occupies a special place in the recorded Hendrix legacy. Occurring only a little over a day before Hendrix's untimely death, the jam represents his last public performance. Considering that very few of Jimi's club appearances were recorded (other than those that Jimi recorded himself in the spring of 1968), the fact that this final performance would be recorded must be considered extremely unlikely. But in fact it was recorded, and parts of this recording have circulated for about 30 years. Until now it has never been known exactly how much of this performance was committed to tape, or by whom. Some guessed that a member of War had made this recording; others thought that the taper was Jerry Goldstein, War's manager at the time. But very recently the whole recording has appeared, and the man that recorded it, Bill Baker, has also stepped forward.

The first appearance of this material was on a bootleg LP, Can You Please Crawl out Your Window, that was produced sometime in the mid to late 1970s. That LP included two tracks from the Ronnie Scott's Club performance, Mother Earth and Tobacco Road, which closed sides one and two respectively. Of reasonable quality, these recordings represented the only portions of the concert available until a 40-minute tape of the jam came into circulation some years later. This tape contained slightly longer versions of Mother Earth and Tobacco Road and also included several songs on which Jimi didn't play Paint It Black, Spill the Wine and Mystery Train. All of these songs were incomplete to varying degrees, and the entire tape was of poor audio quality, substantially worse than the quality of the two tracks on the bootleg LP. It was not known whether other songs were played during the show, and if so whether Jimi had played on them.




This remained the state of affairs until several months ago, when the taper of this concert came forward with his story and a complete copy of his master tape. The fan that taped this recording is Bill Baker, a resident of West London. He never intentionally kept this recording back; in fact, he gave copies to numerous people throughout the years. One of these was the source for the poor-quality tape copy that came into circulation. However, somehow the complete recording in master quality had never made it into general circulation within the collecting community.

Bill was 20 years old in 1970, and had recently become a big fan of Eric Burdon and War. He tells the story of how he came to attend and record the show that night at Ronnie Scott's Club.

I first heard 'Spill the Wine' while on an extended holiday in Italy. When I heard it, it completely blew me away, he says. I couldn't believe how good it was. I also heard about the Isle of Wight festival but unfortunately returned to England a week late for that. After I got back I went to a QPR [Queens Park Rangers] football game with an old friend and he told me about a free show by Eric Burdon and War in Hyde Park coming up on Saturday the 12th of September. So I went to that with a few mates. I recall that John Sebastian was also on the bill. During the concert, Burdon told the audience to make sure to go to the shows they were playing at Ronnie Scott's during the upcoming week, and to 'freak all those jazz freaks out of the place.' So I decided I'd have to be at one of the shows. I ended up deciding to go on Wednesday night, the 16th.

I invited my younger brother to go with me, but he had to work the next day and decided not to go. I was out of work at the time. So I ended up going alone. I got there early and was just about the first into the club, so I was able to be in the very first row. Front row seat, about two feet away from the drum kit. I talked with the members of the group a bit before the room filled up. I had brought my Sony cassette recorder with me, and one Philips C-90 cassette. I set the microphone on my table right there at the edge of the stage.




There were other groups on the bill that night; I remember a gospel group, and the Alan Haven Trio, who I liked quite a lot. There was a disco above the main room; I went up there between live acts. I recall there was lively salsa music with lots of people dancing. The live music started around 8 o'clock and ended around 2 or 3 AM Thursday morning. So War was late getting on stage, maybe around midnight, and most or all of the War performance was actually during the early hours of the 17th. I taped the first set, got a good recording of that, although the first side of the tape ran out before the end. I wanted to save the other side for the second set.

At intermission I went back to the dressing room and talked with the group between sets. I told them I had taped the set, and they said that was fine with them. I got them to autograph my copy of 'Spill the Wine' that I had brought with me. When I went out for the second set, my seat was taken so I went to the upper level. A young lady, an American, was there with a guy, and she invited me to join them at their table. So I sat with them there, right at the front and to the left of the stage, right above Lonnie Jordan, the organist for War. So the second set was taped from a different seat. The girl saw I was taping the gig, and asked me to make a copy for her, which unfortunately I never did.

During the set the girl I was sitting with said, 'Look, Jimi Hendrix and Eric's wife!' I didn't see him enter, but Hendrix had appeared, and I saw him sit with Angie Burdon, at a table to the left of the stage. Jimi had his guitar with him. You can hear Eric invite Jimi up onto the stage for 'Mother Earth'. He got up and played on the song with the band, using his white strat. Near the end of that song, Hendrix left the stage to go back and sit with his girlfriend. Burdon asked him to come back, which is also on the tape. He did rejoin the band for the end of the song and also played on 'Tobacco Road' The tape side ran out shortly after this song started, but I flipped it over and re-recorded over the start of the first set on side one.

After the show was over, Hendrix hung around for a bit and I went over to talk with him. He was sitting there with a pint in front of him, but white wine rather than beer; he offered some to me and I accepted. So we 'spilled the wine' together on that night. He was polite and friendly, and happy to chat. I asked if I could record the conversation, but he said that probably wasn't a good idea. So we just talked. I borrowed a pen and asked if he would sign the sleeve that I had with me for War to sign. He said sure, 'but take the record out so it doesn't fuck up the grooves. 'I had an apple and he asked if he could have a bite, and I said sure, so he took one; in fact, I think he kept the apple and finished it. Finally Jimi got up to leave with his girlfriend and said to me, 'Hope to see you soon, man.' I left the club in the early morning hours and took a cab back home.

I remember that there was a U.S. photographer at the show, from New York City if I recall correctly. He took pictures throughout the evening. I have no idea what became of him, or of the photographs.

I got back home and later that day (Thursday) I made a dub of the cassette onto a 5' reel tape, since I wanted to give a copy to the group, who were staying in a hotel in London for several days. On Friday (the 18th) I went to the hotel, and found Jerry Goldstein (War's manager), Eric Burdon and his parents, Zoot Money, and some others in the upper-floor lobby. I gave Goldstein the tape dub, and talked with them and with some other people for awhile. Jerry recalls that he gave me 20 pounds sterling for the tape. When I left I took the lift down to the ground floor, and when I got out I saw a group of people standing there. Some of the girls were crying, and I recognized them from the group that had been with Eric earlier. I asked them what was wrong but they didn't answer, they just got in the lift crying. I took the tube home. It was only later that day that I read in the evening paper that Jimi was dead.

In the mid-70s, Bill approached an employee at the BBC to investigate the possibility of releasing his recording from Ronnie Scott's. He wasn't able to arrange this, but he did make copies of the tape onto 7'reels. Bill took these to a record shop owner in Hammersmith, who agreed to have LPs made. But after a short while he told Bill that he had decided to pull the plug on the deal, so Bill retrieved the reels from the man. However, as we know an LP did appear. What eventually came from this was the well-known bootleg LP Can You Please Crawl out Your Window This LP was a hodge-podge of material, combining material from a 1976 BBC radio show with the Reprise Christmas promo single. The LP also included nearly complete versions of three BBC recordings (the original radio show only contained incomplete versions). But the real gems on the LP were the two Hendrix tracks from the War recording. Bill never made a penny from this release, although he received some LPs from the deal. But the unpleasant episode discouraged him from ever trying again to release this in any formal way, either officially or unofficially.

Death News...

I went through and compiled some tapes I had from that day and the following days documenting this historic and tragic event. Alexis Korner has some interesting things to say that turned out to be spot on about Jimi's legacy. To me Jimi was the most talented and coolest rock stars that ever walked this Earth. His talent was amazing and unassailable....this was not some rich kid who emerged from an art school, rather a poor kid who rode the wings of his talents to the top of the world. Maybe commentors can give a thought or two on Jimi...maybe you were lucky enough to see him play and want to share what that was like. Jimi, we miss you...

RE-UP: Jimi Hendrix live at Atlanta International Pop Festival 1970 - 1DVD

Jimi Hendrix
The Atlanta Reel DVD [aka. "Atlanta Pop Festival"] (ATM DVD 005 / 29.05.2004 / DVD-R)

(Atlanta International Pop Festival, Middle Georgia Raceway, Byron, GA 04.07.70) Video / Audio Composite *

[* This DVD features the video from the "Jimi Hendrix At The Atlanta Pop Festival" laserdisc put it into correct order. The Audio from "All Along The Watchtower" (10) through the end comes from ATM 114 "The Atlanta Reel", and a mix of "Stages", the laserdisc audio, and a touch of the Space Mix (available ATM 173-174 "Atlanta + Space") has been used for the beginning. The goal in the non-Reel-audio sections was to use sources with the least amount of fake crowd noise added by Alan Douglas. The audience source (also available ATM 173-174 "Atlanta + Space") has been used as an intro and an outro, and also to patch the beginning of "All Along The Watchtower" (10). There is a minute of black screen at the beginning while Jimi tunes up, and the last seven or eight minutes (from "Hey Baby (New Rising Sun" (5) through the end of the audience outro) play over a simple title.]

RE-UP: Jimi Hendrix "The Complete Winterland Reels" - 6CD - October 10, 11 & 12, 1968

The Jimi Hendrix Experience - The Complete Winterland Reels
(ATM 208-210/ATM 211-213)

Winterland Arena, San Francisco, October 10, 1968 (complete 1st
& 2nd show), October 11, 1968 (complete 1st show & 2nd show) and
October 12, 1968 (complete 1st & 2nd show).

Stereo Soundboard Digitally Restored (except October 11, tracks
5-7, 1st gen audience recording).

Artwork included

This is an upgrade of ATM 011-016 "Three Nights of Winter". The
sound of this compared to the 2nd Gen used for ATM 011-016 is
somewhat different. This version has more bass and it's also
"dryer" in sound (less reverb) than the 2nd Gen version. An
earlier flawed version of this Set is also in circulation. That
Set, sometimes also known as "Winterland Raw Source" and "A Raw
Winter", suffers from index clicks, DAT clicks and buzzes all
throughout, and was "leaked" to the general public by a mistake.
The Clean version (this) has 9 tracks on Disc 4 (11.10.68/2nd
Show), while the flawed version only has 8 (same amount of music,
just one less index mark).

The more than six hours of live music assembled here gives
Hendrix fans the first opportunity to compare The Experience’s
live performances. 2-performances per night for 3-days recorded
during the band’s temporary residence at San Francisco’s Winter-
land arena. Given that these recordings have been assembled from
a variety of different sources, the sound quality, with exception
of the last 3 tracks on Disc 3, which, as the soundboard tape had
mysteriously stopped running, have been taken from a less-than
perfect audience recording is excellent, and as usual, Jimi’s
virtuoso delivery is as varied and unpredictable as ever, as are
the technical problems which were invariably the sub-text of the
majority of Hendrix concerts.

Extraordinary Archives Traded Material series of the highest
quality Hendrix recordings available in traders' circuits. All
recordings in the ATM series are taken from the lowest generation
masters available, and they have all been digitally restored
unless otherwise indicated.

RE-UP: Jimi Hendrix live in Aarhus 1970 - 1CD - September 2

Jimi Hendrix
Vejlby Risskov Hall
Aarhus, Denmark
September 2, 1970

Quality: B++

 Intro
 Freedom
 Message to Love
 Hey Baby/Drum solo

Jimi Hendrix: Guitar, vocals
Mitch Mitchell: drums
Bill Cox: bass

Notes: (Based on Chris Dixon's "Ask the Axis" site and Tony Brown's `The Final Days')

This a date that lives in infamy in Jimi's legend, for the concert is cut short when Jimi proves to be in no shape to play, due to some unknowable combination of physical illness, fatigue and lifestyle. Jimi had his 'off days' like anyone, but only once before did a concert have to be prematurely cut short, that being the last Band of Gypsys performance at Madison Square Garden in NYC on 1/28/70. There are any number of reports of why Jimi was in this condition, how he acted before the show ("I am not sure I will live to be 28 years old") and after the show ("It's winter and the tracks are easy to follow...now the seaons have have changed, I've lost the track."

It's amazing that this recording even exists, Aarhus being a smaller town in Denmark. Yet someone faithfully brought along their tape deck and made quite an excellent recording, capturing all the instruments and Jimi's voice quite well.

Jimi greets the crowd by asking "Are you doing all right?" and that point the taper starts his machine and we here Jimi's follow up.... "I said are you doing all right?" The crowd responds with a cheer to which Jimi responds "Thank god, thank God" then asks for "...a minute to try and tune up". After a pause he says "Welcome to the electric circus, our first song will be called 'Freedom'..." Jimi's voice does sound a little different, a little slurred with a noticable difference in his distinctive cadence. He begins 'Freedom' a bit too slow and starts missing chords almost immediately. He starts singing at :40 but fumbles for the words, singing only about two words out of both the second verse and chorus. He manages a little soloing at 2:45 but the bridge is pretty rough. The songs ends, on a wrong chord, at about 5:00. Not a good start. Jimi follows up by saying "That's where freedom is at...right on..", his voice trailing off.

He dedicates the next song to "The world, the galaxy, space.." and says "it's a thing called...let me get it right..". He begins counting up the frets to the starting chord and is heard counting then said "lost track" an old joke of his, showing he still has a sense of humor even if he is not feeling well.

He tries to tune up a bit and after a few moments of dead air the audience begins rhythmically clapping and Jimi then shuts them up by playing a couple of chords. After an uncomfortable silence Jimi says "Actually I forgot what I was here for...oh right, 'Message to Love' ". This number fares the best of the night, though it's still just barely hanging in there. The climbing intro goes OK, but Jimi hits a wrong chord afterward then lingers on the root chord for a couple of extra bars. He waits almost 1:45 before starting the vocals. He remembers more words than not, but each line is invariably delayed, showing him to be literally out of sync. Most of the composed riffs seem to come to him instinctively and he wisely doesn't try too many embellishments. At 2:25 he starts soloing but soon switches to longer sustained single notes, tentatively trying a few faster runs. At 3:25 the ever supportive Billy improvises a climbing variation on the riff as Jimi continues soloing. He holds it together, but barely, quoting Power of Soul (as he had the previous night) briefly at 4:35. He goes back to the main riff at 5:30, attempting one word of the last verse, then starting it over. At 6:45 he does the bridge. It starts OK but Jimi gets off rhythm. Does some of the "Everybody, come alive..." words and at least they all get out of the bridge at the same time! A little more soloing and he slurs the final ascending riff to an E chord...

...sneaking in a little tuning and trying some moving figures around the E as he had done in many a jam leading into 'Hey Baby'. Mitch and then Billy fall into the slow groove behind Jimi, but at 1:25 Mitch stops and Jimi does a few tentative single note lines and flamenco-style pull offs and runs. At 2:30 he starts the 'Hey Baby' intro proper, dropping a chord or two but regaining a little momentum with a slightly fuller tone. The intro ends at 3:50 and Jimi does a few clipped chords with the Univibe, then a trill and a few strums of the Am root chord for HB, then he stops playing at 4:20. Mitch picks it up with a drum solo as, reportedly, Jimi leaves the stage (he's also pictured sitting down on the stage at one point). Mitch soldiers on for about 3 more minutes, pounding out a solo which is met with cheers. The tape ends and Jimi never returned to the stage.

 Backstage Jimi told the promoter that he was sick and couldn't play anymore and that he wanted no payment and promised to come back within a month and play a free show.

  "I got to the dressing room," said Otto Fewser, the hall manager. "Hendrix collapsed in my arms and we sat him upon a chair. He was cold, a cold fever, they asked for cocaine. `We have not cocaine,' I said."

 By this point in the tour Jimi had played four nights in a row and was battling a fever and cold. His comment: "Why I work so hard, I wish I knew" made during this tour is apropos. And there would be no rest...he played Copenhagen the following night, and as if to makeup for Aarhus, played one of his most amazing shows ever there...

Notes: Jimi's 1970 concert at the Stora Scenen, Liseberg Nojespark in Gothenburg, Sweden. This first day of the last month Jimi would spend on this mortal plane sees him playing his last gig in Sweden, a country which had hosted many Jimi concerts going back to the early Experience days. After the marathon of the previous two days, it seems Jimi was able to get at least some rest before the Gothenburg show and he turns in the strongest gig yet in this short tour. While he sounds a bit tired, the plays energetically throughout.

The tape of this show is a bit muddy and distorted, but not overly so and all the instruments can be heard fairly well. There are a number of tape cuts but in all, especially given the great music herein, it can be an enjoyable listen.


After an apology for being late, Jimi launches into a free form flamenco-inflected improv that sound like it could be leading to 'Hey Baby', Jimi changes it up and instead begins with 'Spanish Castle Magic'. Unfortunately, the radio interference of the last few gigs is back. Jimi stops singing during the first verse and starts again at the chorus. Takes a solo but keeps it short, only about a minute, before coming back to the vocals. Another short solo takes it to the end amid a few more squeals and radio signals.

Jimi pulls one out of his trick bag with 'Killing Floor', the first time he has performed the song since, coincidentally, Sweden (Stockholm to be exact) back in Jan. 9, 69 (it will surface once more, a few days later at the last show). He doesn't do the longer intro from the early days but establishes the main riff while introducing the song. Jimi and/or his road crew seems to have made some adjustments in the gear as the short but energetic solo has a much warmer tone (granted, there are other variables like taper position, etc.) and the radio ghosts seem to have been exorcised. He's back to the verse at 2:50, takes another solo at 3:50, a verse at 4:05 and ends a half minute later.

'Hear My Train' is next, another significant performance in that it is Jimi's last ever performance of this longtime concert staple. After featuring it at almost all US '70 shows (and a good number of '69 shows as well), this is the only time he plays it on the fall European swing. He starts right in on the main riff and takes off on a slow, deliberate solo after the band enters. He throws in some sliding chords at 1:00 then cranks it up a bit to do the 'Gloria' chords often heard after the last chorus. Takes up the vocals, winding up the first verse with "..I still love you baby, too bad you made me go...". Starts the solo and Billy sets up a backing cycle of alternating the main riff with a 2 chord figure, the latter played in octaves for a very full sounding effect. Jimi moves through some louder trills and dive-bombs and he quotes the Purple Haze opening riff, followed by the Foxy Lady riff! Jimi moves to some very fast intense soloing and then pulls back and does some quieter excursions mixing changing notes against open drone strings. Some the wah and Mitch adds some double-bass drum rolls. Jimi plays some nice octave runs and returns for the verse, singing "Gonna leave this town, thank god...gonna leave all these towns...". Sounds like he adds the fuzz for the last chorus and he skips the words except for one line, instead suggesting them on guitar. He does the 'Gloria' bit again and takes off on another high speed solo, ending with a sustained note and short vocal tag. A great sendoff for this old war-horse, a song that often provided Jimi with an onstage refuge.

Jimi introduces 'Message To Love' amid more tuning. Jimi sings the first verse but there's some sort of problem and the guitar drops out before the second verse starts. Billy and Mitch continue and Billy drops out. Mitch builds the drum solo to a nice crescendo to some crowd cheers and Jimi returns, restarting at the first verse. He solos and  quotes 'Power of Soul', the song right next to MtL on the then-current BoG album! He plays the PoS riff enough times that he may have been urging the band to follow along, but it doesn't happen (they had tried it out with Mitch at the Berkeley soundcheck but had not done it in concert since the BoG shows).He adds the wah for some 'full shred' soloing, but the tape jumps to the vocal tag and it ends soonafter.

...which Jimi continues to improvise around, while Billy plays an anchoring riff similar to one heard in '3rd Stone From The Sun'. Jimi tunes a little on the fly, briefly hints at the 'I Feel Fine' riff (!), then moves to some sliding octaves. He experiments with a few altered chord progressions, the free-associated ideas simply pouring out of him! There's a brief passage reminiscent of part of 'Drifting', then he moves to the 'Hey Baby' intro proper with Billy. Within the intro, Jimi throws in all sorts of cool fills between the familiar arranged lines, moving toward the Am-G-F progression...but not without first trying out a few variations on it as well! The band enters behind him  and Jimi does a slow, legato solo over the verse chords. Finally, he does the first vocal verse, at one point 'slapping' the chords, and he winds it up after a single chorus. A high point of the evening and one of the, if not the, most interesting trips 'Hey Baby' ever took in its (and Jimi's) short life.

'In From The Storm' is up next, a very short and tight rendition. This is the 4th of 5 known live performances of the song.

The tape cuts into the 'Hey Joe' intro and, shortly afterward, another cut jumps us to the second verse. We hear some background vocals on the verse here, presumably Billy. The inevitable 'I Feel Fine' quote comes after the second "...caught my baby messin around..." line. He does some playing with his teeth and ends the song with a snatch of 'English Country Garden'!

Jimi introduces 'Foxy Lady' by joking that "...(Foxy) must have three kids by now..(so it's) dedicated to her children...". Again we hear a bit of background vocals, answering "...foxy" in the verse.

After some tuning, a tape cut takes us straight to the opening notes of 'Red House'. Jimi takes his time and builds the opening nice n' easy with lots of thoughtful blues bends. He heads into the vocal verses, his voice soulful but showing a hint of strain (BTW, ever notice how often he begins RH lines with the word "Lord..."?). He starts the solo with a slightly harder attack, adds the wah for the next 12 bars and plays a little off the resulting overtones, then the tape jumps forward a bit to (presumably) the third verse of soloing with a clean tone. This last round features a particularly nice winding melodic line wrapped around the 5 (F#) chord. Yet another 12 bars with a trebly tone, possibly a fixed wah position, and it's back to the vocals.

'Room Full of Mirrors' is our second to last live rendition (damn, seems like just yesterday I was noting 'first ever' versions of songs...). Mitch's ride cymbal work cuts through nicely here, a treat for an audience tape. During the bridge it sounds like the taper briefly fumbles the mic. A quick straightforward version.

'Straight Ahead' is our 5th of 6 known live versions, another song which came to fruition during the summer '70 sessions at Electric Lady. Jimi introduces it as "Have You Heard"- anyone's guess what he would have called it in the end (at one point he wrote out notes calling the new album-to-be 'Straight Ahead'). Jimi's opening chords are a little more staccato than other versions. There's a short solo w/ wah leading to the last verse. The ending is unusual in that they use the little turnaround riff from the end of the chorus and simply slow it down, over the course of a few repeats, until it grinds to a halt.

Jimi says good-night and warmly thanks the crowd for being so "nice (and) pleasant", launching into 'Purple Haze'. He adds an imitation of the pitch-bend 'doppler' effect of a passing siren during the solo. A tape cut forwards the song to the solo coda, and another cut...

...takes us to the set ending VC(SR). Jimi starts singing and heads into the solo . He adds the wah for some very high register soloing. He does an energetic solo, revisiting many of the licks from the studio version. He happens onto a riff similar to Cream's 'Cat's Squirrel and is prompted to go ahead and quote from 'Sunshine of Your Love' , followed by a more definite snatch of 'Cat's Squirrel'! He visits the main riff, then takes off on some clever moving chord variations. He does some quieter, more percussive playing, then drops back to let Billy and Mitch take over, Billy slipping into the climbing riff variation from the last section of the studio version. Jimi is heard lightly joining in on guitar and starts singing the "sweet time."  He does an 'above the nut' bend after the first line, and waits almost 30 seconds before repeating the lyric line. There's another hint at 'Cat's Squirrel' and then he repeats the "see you no more" line 3 times. The final solo starts and alternates high bends with low riffs, leading to some 'full shred' feedback/whammy. He revisits the opening guitar figure and begins a solo coda, only to have the tape interrupted by some conversational voices that have the hallmark of someone accidentally pushing 'record' while listening to the original, or close to it, tape- Arrgh! The tape cuts briefly back to Jimi and it's over.
A great performance and a true high point in this final chapter IMO!

As a side note: One bit of Jimi lore has the band attending a party after the show during which Billy gets dosed with LSD, the bad trip to the reported non-drugger resulting in a deteriorating mental state which caused him to leave (and end) the tour later that week. That led to the cancellation of the rest of the tour and put Jimi in London on the 18th of September...one wonders if the tour had continued if events would have been different somehow, one of those sad "what ifs."
