Hendrix Band of Gypsies first show Fillmore East 12/31/69. Not sure if this was mentioned here, released September last year. 13 tracks unreleased - sounds great. Since it is the debut of an unrehearsed group, they are way out on the thin ice. Hendrix jams like a crazy rough diamond.

Easy to overlook this one and assume you already heard it.

That 1st single disc offering still stands the test of time as one of the greatest live albums ever. I've got the newer double discs with bonus tracks and alternate performances, Some of the banter was cool. It's right there with LATFE. The anniversary releases by the ABB with bonus tracks and alternates is cool too, but the originals were sweet.

Message To Love.

I only have two prerecorded reel to reel releases and Gypsies is one of them. It is the desirable 7 1/2" IPS. It is sonically one of the best recordings I have of all analog, vinyl included. It is thunderous and incredibly dynamic. Did a CD / Vinyl / tape A/B/C comparison once since it astounded me so much. Played LOUD, thru big speakers is an "experience"......... but as said, a great recording of Jimi toward the end. Buddy Miles is a trip on it.

Last two posts - wow. Will try not to remember them as I try to eke out the source from my digital illusion.

How old are those reels? Maybe transfer time, even one gen removed it will still blow away anything else.

Those shows really are amazing, especially when you consider how they exist in a vacuum. It's not just that it's the best Band of Gypsys album....it's the ONLY Band Of Gypsys album. When you think about how powerful that album is, it just doesn't seem possible.

But it's true. There are no Band Of Gypsys studio albums. That band only played, what, 10 shows? By April of 1970, only 4 months after that remarkable NYE run, Mitch Mitchell was back in the band and Jimi had moved on to a whole new set of material.

In the grand scheme of Jimi's career, the Band Of Gypsys was just a brief blip, but what a blip it was!
