    Incredible footage and especially audio of Hendrix at Woodstock. I am especially blown away by his solo piece later in the concert. Fantastic close-ups and details as well.

    I think the conga players were just there for visual effect. :lol: They weren't miked, sort of playing whatever, and the guy on the left was standing right in front of two 100W stacks so it's unlikely he could even hear what he was doing!!

    I love this video

    the last part the jam at the end is some of the most beautiful impromptu playing that Jimi did ever

    hendrix saw them in the crowd and invited them up to play last minute, notice the guy in front of Billy Cox is playing modified barrels that were made into drums.

    That’s a very high quality video for that long ago, and an iconic performance. I don’t recall seeing that footage before either.

    Juma and Jerry( the conga players) and Larry Lee on guitar were

    both practicing with Cox and Mitchell in Woodstock for a few weeks before the concert. After Woodstock Jimi let them go.

    I had read that Hendrix would find musicians and bring them into the studio impromptu , just to get a differnt feel
