Jimi Hendrix Experience, The - Los Angeles Forum April 26, 1969 [2LP] (150 Gram, first time on vinyl, 12 page book, gatefold)
Los Angeles Forum - April 26, 1969 presents an extraordinary April 1969 performance by the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Before a raucous, sold-out house, Hendrix, drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding tore through a unique set featuring highlights such as "I Don't Live Today," "Purple Haze," "Red House," and an astonishing medley of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" and Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love".
This pristine recording, newly mixed by Hendrix's longtime engineer Eddie Kramer, captures the original Jimi Hendrix Experience in their unrivaled, peak form. A portion of this performance was previously included as part of a short-lived Westwood One radio documentary box set [Lifelines 1990-1992] but has been unavailable in any form for two decades and this marks the first time ever that it is available on vinyl.
The double LP release in gorgeous gatefold packaging and a 12 page 12"x12" book - complete with liner notes from ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons who witnessed the show first hand - gives this seminal performance its proper platform, presenting the complete performance mixed directly from the original eight-track master tapes.
