    Thanks! I hadn't seen it either. Great vibe, proper interplay between the three of them,(sorry Noel) and what Woodstock should have been. Hilarious audience.

    Imagine how great he could have been if only he had cryogenically treated valves and low capacitance leads;)

    Jimi is so cool, he’s really getting in to it, displaying his showmanship and effortlessly scorching the earth at the same time. It blows me away!

    The audience is funny, especially the girl at 4:00. I hope she was able to remember the show.

    The whole scene looks cool, with the wind blowing, people riding horses in the background, hippies doing hippy activities, 5 full-on Marshall stacks, and the Experience ripping it up. I would love to have been there.

    Hope the rest is as good as that footage.

    Hi.

    Yes, a friend of mine sent me this yesterday, commenting you apparently had to be blonde to gain entry. Also said he heard you were seated according to star sign...

    But yeah, jokes aside, it’s good.

    I used to windsurf in Maui. That spot is at Rainbow Park in Paia. Driven past it 100's of times, never knew Hendrix played there! Great stuff.

    I don’t think the movie is out yet, is it?

    If only he'd been using some fancy digital modeling amp that could sound like any amp ever made, instead of those crusty old Marshalls that have to be too loud to sound good.

    Yeah, this is part of "Rainbow Bridge" IIRC.


    What's different here?


    Instantly you hear it, way more definition in the bass and compared to the old vid/recording Billy Cox sounds like a tight MF. All those live recordings have poor definition on the low end, this remaster kind of makes me "get it" when listening to how funky Billy's bass playing is. I had the ole bootleg on VHS and it sounded like ****.


    Wish the estate would do more of this more often.


    Also, those grannies were fine'em fine back in their prime.

    I was mostly focused on the rhythm section. Tight! Jimi's not bad either. Univibe?

    What’s the deal with the foam over the mics?

    Is it because of the wind?

    Excuse my ignorance

    Yep, most likely.


    But if I was alive and gigging back then I would also appreciate about 1ft of foam between myself and the mic, hopefully long enough to keep an electrical zap from numbing your face off.
