Classic Performance From One Of The Greatest Guitar Players
I have a couple of Jimi Hendrix albums and stuff and I'm getting more and more into his music. I bought 'Jimi Hendrix Live At Woodstock' cheap on video. Even though this Jimi performance is seen as 'classic' I personally don't think he is at his best. Hendrix was best in 1967-68 (performance-wise) when he was raunchy, loud and showmanshippy! This performance iis very tired and drags on and on unlike his earlier performances. There are some classic tunes including FIRE, IZZABELLA, RED HOUSE, VOODOO CHILE and THAT version of THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER!!!!! I'm not a die-hard Hendrix fan. Real Hendrix freaks would adore this because of it's classic tunes and just seeing Jimi play like that! But for me to look at listen to this I found it to be very repetetive and dragging on and on too much. He doesn't even set his Fender Strat on fire! LOL. I feel Hendrix was at his best when he was more enthusiastic and showy, but Hendrix fans will love this as it'll have all they want. Definately worth checking out to witness Jimi's genius! 8/10
