‘Miami Pop Festival'

Jimi Hendrix Experience (Experience Hendrix/Legacy)

★★★★

For my money, the two most iconic Jimi Hendrix performances were at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, where he set fire to his guitar at set's end, and the 1969 Woodstock appearance that cemented Hendrix's status as a legend. Sandwiched between those legendary sets is the 1968 Miami Pop Festival, available here for the first time in any form.

Recorded by sound engineer Eddie Kramer, this 11-track set includes his first recorded performances of “Tax Free” and “Hear My Train A Comin',” as well as stellar renditions of “Hey Joe,” “Foxey Lady,” “Fire,” “I Don't Live Today” and “Purple Haze.” A must for Hendrix completists, it's another chance to admire the late, great guitarist.
