A very special thanks goes out to my buddy Dave for sharing this with me. He is my source for Jimi Hendrix updates, news, new release notices, and just overall anything Jimi Hendrix.
I'd had this one almost ready to upload earlier this year and everything came to a crawl (or stop) for a while as I ran out of time to upload anything. But now that I am able again, I definitely wanted to get this excellent show uploaded as soon as possible,
It's been a few months since I've heard this show. But one thing I remember and the original sharing party made mention of is this. It seems Jimi is a little slow starting out the first set but he picks up in the second set. In the second set he's much more warmed up and on fire the whole show I guess. The person sharing this source called it a "bi-polar night" for Hendrix. And the second show not only is played a little better but it sounds audibly better too. Maybe it's just in my head? You be the judge.
One of these two sets was recorded by Swedish television too by the way. I'm not sure which, and I think I have some of the video from this too? Since I now have my drives unplugged I cannot confirm that. Until I can back them up with the new drives I had to replace (thankfully under warranty) I'm trying not to keep them plugged in any more than necessary until everything is backed up.
There is a full set of artwork with a booklet enclosed in the download. The artwork has some write-up on a few pages and I haven't read it just yet. So it'll probably have some information I'm failing to mention here.
The audio falls just a little short of perfect but it is not by any means something to worry about. It really is an excellent show and the sound is excellent as I've already stated. It is not 100% without flaw. There are some small amounts of distortion in the shows. But the waveform has no clipping of the audio so it's not a bad recording or EQ job causing the slight distortion. And hey, that's Jimi Hendrix's style of playing anyhow! Jimi Hendrix even mentions to the crowd "It's gonna be a little bit loud. These are English amps and we're in Sweden and the electricity is not working out with these fuzz tones..." before "Spanish Castle Magic" in the second set. If you're a Hendrix fan you will enjoy the show!
Coming in at a little over two hours long with both sets, it's a great 2 CD set to throw on and jam out to. If it weren't so early now I'd be doing that myself instead of listening through the PC speakers.
I hope you enjoy the show...
