A memory with a dreamlike quality


Herb Boers: “After the break to change the stage around, the DJ came back out: “And now, with Noel Redding on bass, Mitch Mitchell on drums, and of course Jimi Hendrix on lead—the Jimi Hendrix Experience!” As I remember it, they broke right into “Fire,” without the tuning up and messing around that seemed to blunt the impact of their taking the stage on many of the concert recordings I have heard (although Jimi did spend a lot of time tuning up between numbers). I also seem to remember a curtain going up, but I could well be mistaken about both of these things.” More here. — (With thanks to Luigi Garuti)


“… oh my god, footage of Jimi Hendrix, standing on the tarmac of Love Field with bandmates Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding on April 20, 1969, giving a great, relaxed interview to a very lucky Channel 8 reporter.” Found here.
