This unique concert was filmed at the London Hippodrome on 25 October 2007. It formed a part of the launch for the Jimi Hendrix Live At Monterey programme and featured Gary Moore and his band performing classic Hendrix tracks. At the end of the night Gary was joined by Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox of the Jimi Hendrix Experience for 3 tracks. Gary Moore was one of the finest British guitarists of all time and is one of the few players who could pay homage to Jimi Hendrix s groundbreaking and truly distinctive guitar style. This is a stunning tribute from one master guitarist to another.

The vocals are not Gary's strongest point on this recording but his phrasing is in keeping with Jimi's. 'Manic Depression', Foxey Lady', 'The Wind Cries Mary' and 'I Don't Live Today' display all of the Hendrix trademarks with emphasis on the tremolo, hands off feedback with masterly solos. 'Angel' slows the pace and is played as the beautiful number should be with a bit more of Gary's individuality coming through. 'Fire' is tackled at pace following the original's pattern.
Enter Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell. The three of them only met and played the night before the concert. Despite lack of rehearsal time it was a pleasure to see and hear them perform. 'Red House' had Billy Cox sharing vocals with Gary and playing laid back bass with Mitch drumming sedately. This number is made for Gary. His guitar solo is long, bluesy, and a show case for his skills. He uses the wah-wah pedal for the first time with dramatic effect. It almost develops into a jamming session, controlled and impressive. Billy takes vocals on 'Stone Free' with an animated Mitch catching the ear with the cowbell. The first hit of 'The Experience', 'Hey Joe' is again played as Jimi would surely have liked, loosening up in the later stages and Gary's vocal sounding at times remarkably like Tim Rose.
The excellent Dave Bronze (bass) and Darrin Mooney (drums) return for the finale, 'Voodoo Child (Slight Return)'. Gary Moore bursts into the number with Hendrix-like stunning echo and masterfully effective use of the wah-wah pedal. His solo is another striking success. He even plays a few notes with his teeth!
A first-rate accolade to the great Jimi Hendrix played with the stamp of Gary Moore. I can't think of anyone who could have done this better. It has taken the Hendrix Foundation nearly 5 years to release this. We have lost Mitch Mitchell aged 61 (2008) and Gary Moore aged 58 (2011) since this concert. They will be long remembered too. Cannot recommend this highly enough. Sound and camera work are excellent (to me).
But fear not, this turns out to be a fitting display of near Hendrix as we are now likely to see. Performed before a crowd of Music Business hacks (some who unfortunately came with thier preconceptions and got short shfit from GM), to promote the release of the `JImi Hendrix Plays Monterey` Blu Ray. We are given a masterclass of all the sounds and skills of JH but without (too much) excess from Moore. Gary Moore manages to play almost note for note some quintessenetial sounds by Jimi H, in a live performance that may make some Gary M detractors think again. The sound is superb, the grimacing not too overwhelmming and what a performance! By the end of the show even the die hard hacks had come around to this selection of delights.
This Blu Ray serves to show what losses the passing of these two superb artists has brought us. Recommended for both sets of fans and music lovers everywhere. Fly on sweet angels . . .
Gary's tone is spectacular and his own; he tips his hat to the great master but also allows his own skills on the fretboard to shine through.
Pity it was only 75 mins long.....
The whole thing is great quality and worth a watch. The songs where he plays with Jimis band feel slightly under prepared (they were if you read the liner notes) but great nonetheless.
A good one for your collection if your a fan of either guitar player.
