The 'Jimi Hendrix Experience' are supported by Soft Machine and Mason, Jim Capaldi, Wood & Frog
The Experience take the stage for their first concert back in England for over six months. Jimi: "It'll take about a minute and a half to... tune our instruments here and there and all the gang watching us do it, you know... You don't mind me talking to you tonight? We was playing for, oh let's see, we was playing in, er, in America, right... Then we played Germany, we're very tired and so we haven't practised at all, but [what] we're gonna do is to jam, okay?"
After the song, Jimi leaves the stage but the audience shouts out for more and he returns for an encore. "... This is Noel Redding on bass in case you might be ready to go. And we have Mitch Mitchell on drums. Well, like I said... we're up here to sing for you, thanks for staying with us this long, it's really outta site." Jimi ends the show with 'Voodoo Child (Slight Return)'.
After the concert, Jimi is filmed for an interview in his apartment at 23 Brook Street in Mayfair, London. During the interview he performs a version of 'Hound Dog' on acoustic guitar in the presence of Kathy Etchingham, Steve Gold and his wife.

This post consists of MP3's (320kps) ripped from a cassette tape copy taken directly from the master soundboard (taper unknown - Eat A Peach Records). Quality is outstanding and captures the raw energy that Jimi demonstrated on the night. As a bonus, an acoustic rendition of "Hound Dog" is also included - recorded sometime during his afternoon soundcheck session (and not in Kathy's apartment as previously indicated by Tony Brown). Full album artwork, along with alternative covers - are also included. Note that that this is a double CD set.
