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."

This version is from a 2nd gen tape and is the best sounding transfer i've heard of this show. No direct comparison with Jualino's version done although this one is from a known lineage. Its not great sounding, but very listenable to the completist' ears.

              From Eire Apparent's self titled debut album in which Jimi himself produced.

              One of Jimi's most interesting side projects with one of the Grandfathers of

              guitar and bass parts while Buddy Miles provides drums and organ.
