The 'bonus disc' looks like it has already been released on Dagger Records, the Estate's 'official bootleg' label. Selections from the Winterland concerts have previously been released under the Alan Douglas regime as the 'Live at Winterland' LP/CD, and the 2 CD set 'Winterland Nights' set, which adds four songs to the former release. Some tracks also appeared on 'The Jimi Hendrix Concerts' LPs and CD.
Other than that, Hendrix fans have had to put up with bootlegs of fi both low and reasonable.
There is of course repetition of songs, but as Jimi never played a song the same way twice and these shows were among his best with the Experience, this is all good - even if "Mitch is on his third pair of arms".
Only significant omission for me is the version of Spanish Castle Magic from the 11th of Oct which was on the Univibes Calling Long Distance cd. Also released on the Like a Rolling Stone single, exclusive to the EH website. Frustrating but this is a fantastic release none the less.
I picked up this set today and noticed that although billed as 'The Jimi Hendrix Experience', the package booklet contains somewhere between zero and bugger all photos of Mitch and Noel, but one of Buddy Miles.
Surely Mitch and Noel's contributions deserve better than this?!
