F.A.Q.

Who?
I have a turntable and a nice record collection, mostly LP's from the 60's & early 70's.

What?
My aim is to make rare stuff (in glorious mono or sometimes stereo) publicly available again with the best possible sound quality.

Requests?
Generally, no. I select my projects very critically. Vinyl condition is everything. I tend not to work with records that are in less than pristine condition.

Donations?

  2. One minor correction: 5 songs have been officially released from this performance. 2 on In The West/JHE box, 2 on Concerts, and 1 from the oft-overlooked Variations on a Theme: Red House

  7. Prof, This is gonna be a real treat for me.
    I've heard about the Complete Show but have only heard the bits & pieces that have trickled out through the mentioned official releases. I doubt if the Hendrix Estate will ever release a version as close in accuracy as the one you are giving us here and I want to thank you the usual love & care that you approach every project you do.
    Cheers !!!

  11. Cheers man. Very proud about this one.

  12. Sounds great. What needed upgrading, compared to first post?

    ReplyDelete
  13. v2.0: 21-07-2020 (replaced ATM source with Feather Records source, they are identical except the former has digital glitches; used correct mastering setting on 05-09 -mistake on v1- and Tr 10 now taken from first source instead of second)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thanks for the upgrade. The first one is outstanding, so this one must be even better. Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thank you for V2.0, and for your attention to detail, Prof

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah, Tr 05-09 sound better here. While exporting, I accidentally used the mastering settings for 01-04 on that part too. My bad.

    I had removed most of the glitches on v1, because I assumed it only circulated like that. But turns out, Burdon's team did send some corrections discs without glitches out in 1998 before being shut down by EH, so I redid it.

  17. I was just getting ready to listen to v.1 a second time when I noticed the repost. Thanks for posting this great show.

  18. I deleted my first download, so I can’t compare, but something is wrong with Purple Haze/Wild Thing. There’s a space between tracks and Purple Haze continues to play for 25 seconds into Wild Thing.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Okay - I've gotten to the final tracks. Wild Thing plays 25 seconds into Star Spangled Banner, and there's another gap between SSB and Outro into which SSB plays for 25 seconds. And finally, the feedback at the end of Room Full Of Mirrors plays for 25 seconds into Purple Haze. I think this is where the issue begins. Up until then, everything tracks fine with no gaps between tracks.

  20. Shit, you're right. I'll fix later today.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks for double-checking. We'll be looking forward to your next update.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Fix'd, thanks for reporting Jimmie..

  23. Thanks so much for all your effort on this one Prof! Masterfully done once again!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Third time's a charm haha. Thanks again

  25. Can't wait to dig into this!

  26. Professor - Thank you for this amazing recording. I downloaded the initial attempt a few weeks back, but never had the chance to listen. Enjoying the latest one now. It does not sound like a bootleg. This is a keeper!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thank you so much for this! I am grateful for all the effort you put into each project!

  28. I'm grabbing this now, but I'm going to thank you even before I listen to it, Professor. :-) I have 4 or 5 versions of this on different CDs, and the 2 disc Charly is the best sounding one, so I'm truly glad that was one of your sources. Incidentally, and this doesn't affect what you used, but an interesting tidbit nonetheless, and maybe you already know this, but:

    If you go down to the 2002 Charly entry, there are two different versions of disc, one with the wrong versions of songs in the early portion of the concert. Can't wait to listen to it, thanks Prof! :-D

  31. One of the best versions of Red House, thanks for the great release.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is just fantastic. *If* an official version ever comes out, I'd be surprised if it sounds this good. Thank you, Professor! :-D

    ReplyDelete
  33. Just finished listening to this and it sounds great! Thanks for posting.

  35. Hey Prof, this show was recorded by the Pye mobile team, under Glyn's supervision, am I right? And on 4-track? I often wonder how the instruments were balanced on the tape. Possibly stereo tracked for the instruments, one track for vocals/ flute / audience and one track for film sync, perhaps? From what I can gather over the years, Glyn Johns may have been a fine engineer, but with a big mouth and ego to match. He seems to make himself out to be more than what he really is. Doesn't seem to be a likeable person. Just my opinion. I think this is a fine performance, and I'd have to say my favourite JHE recording, and has been so for many years. The band may have been falling apart, but they really jelled on this night. And very nice job on this show.

    ReplyDelete
  36. 4-track yes. It seems to me like it was divised like this: 1. Drums/congas 2.Bass/dave mason gtr 3. Gtr jimi 4.jimi voc/flute/audience

  37. Thank you very much for this wonderful concert.

    ReplyDelete
