iTunes Review

Live At the Fillmore East is a definitive document of the Band of Gypsies era. Featuring Bill Cox on bass and Buddy Miles on drums, the Gypsies were Hendrix’s first all-black band, and their feel was markedly different from the Jimi Hendrix Experience. While the Experience was all about circular motion and free-floating grooves, the Gypsies were rooted in the soil. Like bricklayers, Cox and Miles laid down a framework that was burly and resolute, but they also allowed Jimi a whole new sense of movement. Hendrix’s music had always been a kind of dance, but the Gypsies gave the rhythms a boxer’s grace, not to mention a pugilistic power. Recorded on New Year’s Day, 1970, these versions of “Hear My Train a Comin’,” “Machine Gun,” “We Gotta Live Together” and “Who Knows” were the toughest music Hendrix had yet recorded. Equal parts heavy metal, deep soul and ancient blues, the Fillmore performances reflected not only the changing nature of Hendrix’s art, but the darkening undercurrent of his counterculture habitat.

Great Music

First review of this great Hendrix double CD. This is the Bands of Gypsies' only show, and along with the BoG CD, you get a warts and all kind of deal of the 2 days. The version of Stone Free is almost as good as Machine Gun on BoG. Jimi was really blowing some fire this night. Anyway the great Buddy Miles does more scatting, and I like it sometimes. And sometimes I don't, but he is a great drummer and singer, and i guess Hendrix told him "do what you feel", so there is a lot of scatting by the great Mr. Miles. So be it. The recording here is great. It is Hendrix Live!. If you like listening to a true master in peak form, here is a perfect find. 5 stars cuz it's frikkin Hendrix!!

Great Stuff

I really like all of the Band of Gypsys stuff. This is an important part of Hendrix's career that is often over looked by The "mainstream" Hendrix media. This is Jimi just jamming and really going off. His guitar playing on this and the BOG album is really top notch. His more popular stuff is great but this stuff is just as innovative and i think if he was alive he would have continued in this hard-funk-rock direction, and I think it fits him well.

Classic Raw Live Hendrix - Lord of the Strings

I heard this live concert album nearly 2 decades ago for the first time... it blew my mind. Still does. I just had to write a review because this is a must for anybody who wants to hear Hendrix playing his best and playing what he felt comfortable playing at the time of his death. It's simply Raw. Brilliant. Genius. A must for any diverse music lover.

Biography

Born: November 27, 1942 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s

In his brief four-year reign as a superstar, Jimi Hendrix expanded the vocabulary of the electric rock guitar more than anyone before or since. Hendrix was a master at coaxing all manner of unforeseen sonics from his instrument, often with innovative amplification experiments that produced astral-quality feedback and roaring distortion. His frequent hurricane blasts of noise and dazzling showmanship — he could and would play behind his back and with his teeth and set...
