Flamboyant guitar mastery of the highest order,
This review is from: Jimi Hendrix: Live at Woodstock [DVD]  (DVD)
This is an extraordinary display of Hendrix's amazing powers on the guitar. Woodstock is not (for me) his best performance, but it is nevertheless astonishing and iconic.
The crowds are vast but it should be remembered that about 4/5 of them had gone home at this stage in the Woodstock festival. It's still a mesmerizing sight to see so many people looking at a stage, and the apparently effortless brilliance that flies out of Jimi's guitar is staggering.
I heard that Hendrix's management insisted he close the festival, which is why so many people had left. A great shame for them and a sign of how the man was being mismanaged.
In any case, this is a stunning performance and I'd recommend it to anyone.
