The tracks released on the original Woodstock albums are by far the best here, and to be honest they sit far better on the single disc CD "Woodstock" prepared by the much maligned Alan Douglas than the later "family" version which features far too much loose jamming.
The truth is 2 CDs of this concert is just too much. As Hendrix voices throughout the concert, they have not rehearsed much.
So the Star Spangled Banner section is one of rock's greatest ever moments, the other originally release tracks Izabella/Beginnings & Gettin' My Heart Back Together are very, very good. Voodoo Chile, Red House & Fire make a great single disc.
Songs played include Red House (new out in the States at the time), Voodoo Child (Slight Return), Purple Haze and Jimi's famously and of course deliberately murdered Star Spangled Banner, his Vietnam equivalent of Picasso's Spanish Civil War painting Guernica. Izabella, Fire, Hear my Train a Comin' and Villanova Junction are pretty good too, not to mention the various improvisations and jams.
The recording carries some extraneous noise, some unintended feedback, the odd buzz and squeak, but even before factoring-in the primitive equipment and the appalling weather and other conditions of the festival weekend it ain't bad. In fact, all things considered, it's really good. The atmosphere comes over and by the time we get to announcer Chip Monck's closing remarks - closing the whole festival - it's impossible to feel anything other than downright nostalgic. There is a nice exchange too between Jimi and a guy who comes onstage to fix the mikes. Jimi empathises with his embarrassment, "I know what you mean. People are looking at me too, man".
There is, however, a loss of authenticity; the tracks have been re-ordered.Read more ›
