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.
