Jimi At His Very Best.,
This review is from: Live At Monterey (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.
