Biography

Biography by Richie Unterberger & Sean Westergaard
In his brief four-year reign as a superstar, Jimi Hendrix expanded the vocabulary of the electric rock guitar more than anyone before or since. Hendrix was a master at coaxing all manner of unforeseen sonics from his instrument, often with innovative amplification experiments that produced astral-quality feedback and roaring distortion. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Jimi At His Very Best. 23 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
Old enough to have seen him on his very first Top Of The Pops appearance, on The Lulu Show and live at Bournemouth Winter Gardens both on The Walker Brothers and The Pink Floyd/Move tour, in my opinon, which you can take or leave as you wish, this is Jimi Hendrix at his very best.
His first gig back in America after ripping the whole scene apart with his genius here in the UK, Jimi and The Who didn't want to follow one another on the bill, so he and Pete Townshend flipped a coin, and Jimi lost; hence, after The Who destroying their equipment, Jimi had to go one better, setting fire to his guitar AND destroying it. But even with that aside, it is, for me, his best era; with him still 'on his way up' and a little naieve, yet a superb performance and jaw-dropping guitar playing.
A definite 'must have' for the aspiring guitarist or rock fanatic's collection, every track a gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 7 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
A truly historic concert when Hendrix 'pulled all the stops' for his first US show after making it in the UK and Europe. Despite sometimes embarrassing stage patter and Wild Thing, which doesn't wear well, the other tracks on this CD show Jimi and the band at their early best. Like a Rolling Stone, even with a forgotten verse, is a highlight of Jimi's career and the rest of the songs aren't too far off.

The under-rated Mitchell and Redding provide excellent support and Mitch's arms must have been ready to fall off after his efforts in this show.

While this CD has exactly the same content as the previous Alan Douglas produced release (long out of print), it has far better sound than the older CD.

The Douglas sound was rather harsh and the bass a bit thin, but this remix by Eddie Kramer has real warmth and presence.

If you're a Hendrix fan, buy the DVD and the CD, but if you're not a fanatic, I'd suggest buying the DVD. Much of this show's appeal is visual, not just the guitar-burning, but the sense of fun and triumph that you see in Jimi's face when he knows he's won over the crowd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive live Jimi 13 April 2008
By jbezzo VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Of all his live concert performances, Jimi at Monterey should be an essential part of any Hendrix fans collection. Woodstock? Moments of brilliance in an overlong and under rehearsed set. Isle of Wight? Not perhaps as horrible as they say but still, Hendrix at a physical and creative low ebb. Monterey captures Jimi at an ascendant point in his career. He'd left America a few months earlier, as Jimmy James, an unknown struggling musician, and now he was coming back as the cause celebre of London's music scene, having been embraced by everyone from the Beatles and the Stones, to Eric Clapton and the Who.

This was Jimi's chance to make a name for himself in the land of his birth and he took it with the same sense of purpose of a wannabe taking the stage at talent night at the Apollo. His set was short (compared to Woodstock, which clocked in at over two hours) yet he pulled out all the stops, kicking of with a blistering "Killing Floor" (the song with which he had slain Eric Clapton the previous year) and included his three hit UK singles, "Hey Joe", "Purple Haze" and a tender "Wind Cries Mary". His obvious debt to Bob Dylan was marked by a majestic version of "Like A Rolling Stone" and the set built towards an fiery climax as Jimi's strat surrendered to the flames at the end of "Wild Thing"

Sure, Hendrix would reach greater creative peaks over the course of the coming years, but as a single snapshot of legend being born, this is the CD to rescue if the house is burning down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Hendrix!!! 11 Jun 2009
By Martyn VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge Hendrix fan, owning pretty much every release and DVD.

Even if you have everything else already and are wondering if it's really worth getting another JH live effort, you HAVE to get this.

Having heard other Hendrix live albums, they are of course always excellent, but always have that 'big venue' sound - this, despite being at Monterey, has the immediate sound of being played in a small club. The whole thing sounds like the Experience are actually playing in your living room, and added to the sheer vitality and brilliant musicianship, this is, despite my familiarity with the band and the material, one of the most exciting records i've ever heard.

The mixture of covers and original material is superb - the cover of 'Like a Rollin' Stone' is worth the price of this album in itself, as is just about every other track here.

This really is a fantastic gig, of superb sound quality, capturing a pivotal moment in the career of one of the greatest musicians of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars "top draw,Jimmy on fire!" 15 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This has to be one of Hendrix best "live " shows,A fresh sound this album has too.Its 1967, Jimmy Hendrix is on top of his game,I was spoiled for music growing up as a teenager around this time,But Jimmy changed it all for me,yet I always come back to this concert and album with a fond memory,his rendition of Bob Dylans "like a rolling stone"is something else,Bob was a big influence on Jimmy whom he watched play years before.Theres a good variety on offer on this album too,considering theres only 9 songs on it,running time 43mins aprox,..covers like "killing floor" and "rock me baby" are done Jimmys way."hey joe" one of the better "live" versions,then you got that mixed in with "can you see me".."foxy Lady"."purple haze"..the wind cries mary" and that old "Reg Presley" classic "wild thing.well packaged from amazon,and a quick service ,at a good price,you cant go wrong with this album in your collection.jimmy,Mitch and noel may be gone..but the music lives on..and a good live recording it is.
