I think this is fantastic - the Experience is firing on all cylinders and Jimi is in a great mood. I must have over 50 (I've never counted them) different live versions of 'Hey Joe' by Jimi and the Experience or Gypsies, Suns & Rainbows etc., but the one that opens this show is unique in that JH doesn't quote the Beatles' 'I Feel Fine ' in it - also the intro is a variation on the 'overture'type beginning that the band was using around this time, with some lovely bits of feedback. It's kind of similar to the intro they used in the 'Lulu show' version 8 months or so later. The first solo is a masterpiece of fluid economy.
The other particularly stunning performance on this album is of 'I Don't Live Today' - always a favourite EXP tune. It just gets blasted into space here - this has to be heard to believed. The show also includes the earliest live recordings ( as I understand it ) of 'Tax Free' and 'Hear My Train A Comin'. The joy of Hendrix is that he never played the same song the same way twice - meaning that every performance of every song (just about) contains little 'throw-away' gems that were never played before or subsequently. This means that 43 years after his tragic demise - previously unheard, breathtaking performances, like this one - which sound fresh and new, can still be released.

Sadly, apart from the Winterland box set which documents most of 6 sets over 3 nights and the second disc (from Paris) of the long-deleted Stages, there hasn't been a whole heap of widely available high quality live recordings of Jimi Hendrix in 1968, so this release is welcome. It was properly recorded to multi-track by Eddie Kramer himself, though the actual sound is quite grungy in places. This is not Eddie Kramer's fault.

However, the occasion - the first rock festival on the east coast of the USA in May 1968 - is more historic than the music contained herein. The festival unusually showcased many acts in both afternoon and evening sets, and had the second day not been an almost complete washout due to heavy rain, many acts, including Hendrix, would have played 4 times in total across the weekend, instead of the two sets that most ended up playing on the Saturday. The track list indicates that the last two tracks - Fire and Foxy Lady - are from the afternoon show; they're described as "bonus performances" because there are also versions of these two songs from the evening show earlier in the CD. The implication, which is not dispelled in the booklet, is that all the tracks except those two are from the evening show. Apparently this is not the case, and Experience Hendrix have seemingly decided that Jimi's running order is not ideal; what this means in terms of editing between-song announcements etc. isn't clear.

Hendrix fans have had to wait a long time for the official release of this May 1968 performance at Gulfstream Park, Miami: 45 years to be exact (sobering to think that had Jimi lived, he'd now be a grand old man of 71). At this event for the first time in his short meteoric career, Jimi was placed top-of-the-bill.

So, what's it like? Well pretty good actually, definitely not `scraping the barrel' recordings but a superb concert performance delivered with finely mastered sound. This is the Experience trio - i.e. Jimi, Noel and Mitch, performing their early work with gusto, and with the mojo in overdrive.

Highlights: almost all of it. Standout tracks are the opener `Hey Joe', `Fire', `Hear my Train A-Commin', `Purple Haze' and - especially - `Red House' which might be his best-ever recorded performance of this blues number. Despite the 1968 date of the concert there is no material from the `Electric Ladyland' project, but the rain-deluge in the afternoon which put a damper on the event reportedly inspired Jimi to write the song `Rainy Day, Dream Away'.

You get 8x tracks from the evening headliner performance (preceded by 2 minutes of messing about and tuning up, titled `Introduction') plus additional versions of `Fire' and `Foxey Lady' from the afternoon's interrupted-by-rain-deluge mini-performance. The 2-gatefold cover sleeve contains a single CD, and a classy 24-page colour booklet crammed with numerous rarely-seen photos of the band, around which is wrapped the text of Bob Santelli's fine (if prolix) essay on the occasion and background music scene in 1968.

For the Hendrix aficionado: don't hesitate, buy.

A great live document of the Experience trio around the time arguably their greatest LP (Electric Ladyland) came out, Jimi & Mitch are on top form here, ably supported by Noel Redding. The sound quality is probably as good as you could expect for 1968, not unlike a very good soundboard bootleg. It takes them a number or two to get going but I would happily pay the price of the LP for the version of Red House alone, as good a slow blues as you're likely to hear. If you're a Hendrix fan, it's a must have.
