Other reviews give a track by track listing, so there’s no point in repeating that. I’ll just emphasise a few points that a Hendrix fan might want to be clear on before deciding whether or not to buy this double CD.
The first thing to note about this release is that the contents of this double CD differ from the tracks previously released on ‘Band Of Gypsys’ – I had thought is was just an extended compilation of tracks from the four shows on 31.12.69 and 01.01.70 but the track listing and enclosed booklet point out this important detail. Even if you have ‘BOG’, it is still very worthwhile getting this set for the different performances if you are a keen Hendrix fan. Secondly, given the dates of these shows, I have to commend the sound quality as it is excellent – a real treat for the ears.
One of the marvellous things about collecting Hendrix’s recordings is that you will very rarely, if ever, find two exactly similar performances of the same song. For example, the opening track ‘Stone Free’ runs for 12:56 and includes some wonderful guitar work with additional vocal elements that work extremely well. There are many good tracks in this set, although there are one or two places that lean too far towards soul music for my taste – not my choice, but you might like it. Overall though, this is an impressive set of recordings and fits well in a Hendrix collection with generally excellent guitar work and the band seemingly enjoying themselves. I still prefer the original ‘Experience’ line-up as I felt they added more than just musical ability to a performance.

I keep reading reviews on Amazon.com about how Buddy Miles put the funk back into Hendrix's live sound. I have never understood that claim because to my ears his playing style on this album is nothing more than a one-dimensional repetitive pounding, the only change being speed variance of the same plodding rhythm for each track. If drum machines had been commonplace in 1969 there would have been no need for Miles to have been onstage with Hendrix, Jimi could have just switched the machine to a basic setting and left it be. Seriously.

To use Stone Free as an example, during live perfomances Mitch Mitchell always held a funky groove, powered along when needed and gave some space to the sound when required, playing with and around Hendrix. In the hands of Buddy Miles the interplay wth that song is completely absent. Instead he hammers at the skins as if he's keeping the beat for a boat race. Head down, bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam....

If you can ignore Miles' rather bland and uninspiring drumming (and his annoying habit of sporadically howling like a wah wah pedal over instrumetal sections), half of this album is very good and half of it reveals exactly why much of this material was left in the vaults when the original Band Of Gypsys album was compiled. Personally I don't think there's enough consistantly strong material on this album to warrant a double CD release. A much better idea would have been to place the superior moments on a single CD, and issue it as a bonus disc with the original Band Of Gypsys album.

Another negative point is the editing. Each song fades in or out.

By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 29 Dec. 2008

'Live at Filmore East' is a double live album of Jimi Hendrix playing with Band of Gypseys. Having just listened to 'Live at Monterey' which was at the start of his career and this which was towards the end, you can see some real differences. 'Monterey' had short, punchy songs designed to make an impact and this Filmore concert has more extended jams and longer songs where Jimi gets into his groove and shows you a more bluesy, almost jazzy side of his playing. You get a storming selection of tracks and highlights for me were 'Izabella', both versions of 'Machine Gun', 'Voodoo Chile' and 'Earth Blues'. Saying that, this whole concert has amazing tracks and an incredible feel. Yet again with these Experience Hendrix recordings there is a great essay booklet and makes for a wonderful overall package. If you like Jimi when he goes off on a jam and you can feel his groove, then this is the album for you and makes a worthy addition to any Hendrix collection. Well worth a buy.

I brought this album hoping it will be half as good as "The Jimi Hendrix Experience" and i would be happy. But the first time i put in disc 1, I was struck with an incredible version of "stone free" whcih shows that this album is going to be great. It follows with the great "Power fo Soul" and the bluesy "Hear my train a Comin'." the Short but punch "izabella" follows. The second best song on the album is next, which is "Machine Gun." The next song is worthy of the 5 stars alone, which is "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" whioch has one of the best guitar solos ever and a wicked bass line. The only let down folls which is "We gotta live together" which is still a quite catchy song.
The album is all about the 1st CD. But CD 2 is one fantasic CD. It some fantasticguitars and drums and bass lines. It starts off with "Auld Lang Syne" and "Who knows" which are 2 great songs with some great guitars. "Changes" has the drummer Buddy Miles singing, and yet again has some brilliant guitars in. Next is the second version of "machine gun" whcih is very nearly better than the first one. "Stepping stone," "stop" and "Earth Blues" follow and are very good songs with some fantasic guitars. The best song on this disc is next "Burning Desire" has some very good lyrics and some very good guitars and a very catch tune. It ends with the brilliant "Wild Thing" which is, in my oppinon much much better than the original.
Buy this album. You will not be dissapointed. The sound is top quality. A must for any Hendrix fan or music fan.
