Biography

Widely recognized as one of the most creative and influential musicians of the 20th century, Jimi Hendrix pioneered the explosive possibilities of the electric guitar. Hendrix's innovative style of combining fuzz, feedback and controlled distortion created a new musical form. Because he was unable to read or write music, it is nothing short of remarkable that Jimi Hendrix's meteoric ... Read more in Amazon's Jimi Hendrix Store

3.0 out of 5 stars Troubling Release February 26, 2001
Format:Audio CD
With control over the release of Hendrix material finally, I thought that the Hendrix family and the record label finally put out a definitive, complete release of the Woodstock performance. But no. What is this? Larry Lee has been edited out of the set--his guitar and vocals are gone, altering and even shortening songs. When will this insanity stop? When will record companies release complete performances and stop editing and fudging with live material like this? How much longer before ANOTHER Woodstock release comes along that includes something omitted here but excludes something included here? Granted, this is much better than earlier incarnations of the release, and what with 2 discs, great pictures and nice liner notes it looks the best, but why oh why are games like this continously played? The sound mix, which many die-hard fans had problems with, seemed fine to me. It's just the practices of the record labels, the producers, and the families and artists themselves (re: the Doors) when it comes to re-releasing material and deifying themselves with sonic trickery that annoys me to no end.

1.0 out of 5 stars THE DOG, THE DOG, (S)HE'S AT IT AGAIN November 27, 2010
By BOB
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The marketing text above, which states "expanded, remixed, and remastered" is true... Except it doesn't state, "expanded, remixed, and remastered in 1999".

Yes, folks, Queen Janie is up to her old tricks again, trying to shore up her coffers with some more of your hard-earned loot, by playing the reissue sleight-of-hand. This is the exact same '99 set, which was Janie-marketed back then as a "limited edition", but, bygollygeewow, has amazingly never gone out-of-print. In other words, there was no reason to re-release this, except to Janie-troll for suckers.

The only difference between this new release and the '99 is now it's in a digipak... even the booklet is the same. Both discs obviously have the same IRSC code as the '99, as both iTunes & freedb recognize each as such, and all the track times are identical.

So, if you already own the '99, ain't no reason to buy this again. If you haven't purchased it prior to this, you might want to click on the '99 link above and see if there's a good condition used copy for less money... Why put more money in Janie's pocket?

3.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Music, but.... November 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Jimi Hendrix's appearance at the 1969 Woodstock festival with his band, Gypsy Sun & Rainbows, was iconic and belongs in every fans collection. However, this is the same mix as the 1999 re-issue. There were six musicians onstage; however, only Jimi hendrix, Mitch Mitchell, and Billy Cox can be heard. Additionally, two songs that were sung by Larry Lee, "Gypsy Woman" and "Mastermind" were left off. It would have been nice if the Hendrix Estate released the ENTIRE set in a mix where Larry Lee, Juma Sultan, and Jerry Velez could be heard. If Jimi Hendrix believed that all the musicians deserved top share the stage with him, then they should be heard. If the product was to be re-released, the estate should have done this - they didn't; so, buy a used version of the 1999 version and save yourself some cash and not reward the Jimi Hendrix Estate or Sony for selling fans the exact same product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but incomplete. February 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When Jimi took the stage at Woodstock to play this set, most of the crowd had left (down from 400,000 to 25,000). The farm on which the concert was staged was now a barren wasteland that consisted of any soggy piece of anything the hippies in attendance didn't want to haul back to their current home.
Jimi took this mess and turned it into a living legend. When he took the stage he didn't even get a proper introduction, but undaunted, launched into a powerful reading of "Message to Love" which, for the most part was a preview of the rest of the show.
There were some problems though, neither Jimi nor his closest bandmates, Mitch Mitchell or Billy Cox really liked the expanded format (which not only included Cox on bass and Mitchell on drums, but two percussionists and a rythym guitarist).
This, is only minor problem though, as neither precussionist is audible due to inadequate miking and the sound of Jimi's guitar.
The worst part, though, is definatly the editing of the rythym guitarist Lary Lee's two solo peices, "Gypsy Woman" and another that the name of which escapes me. I mean, neither disc was even 70 minutes, that means that even if the two songs were ten minutes both could have (and should have) been included. I mean they dismised it as filler and admitted to it in the linear notes but what is so hard about putting on two more tracks? I'm not saying that Lee is some guitar god, but he was part of the band, and part of the Woodstock legend too. All hope of the complete preformance isn't lost, however, as you can obtain the full set with no editing (and all of the songs) on the internet.
Over all, great playing, great step up from the previous Woodstock disc, little or no fake cheering, and almost complete. Great buy, no matter what I said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slight production flaws, but indispensable January 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This 2 CD set adds previously unreleased versions of 'Message To Love', 'Spanish Castle Magic', 'Lover Man' and 'Foxy Lady' to the preceding single CD release (simply titled 'Woodstock'), but it's still not complete: Larry Lee's vocal performances ('Mastermind' and 'Gypsy Woman') were not included (a quote from the liner notes: 'Some things are meant to be preserved only on bootlegs...'). More annoying is that Larry Lee`s GUITAR is still edited out in some places; this not only shortens 'Red House' by several minutes, it also considerably decreases its impact.
Well, what the heck - you'll probably never find a MORE complete official version of this concert, and the music itself is incredible. The undisputed highlight of the set is the medley Voodoo Child (13 minutes + !) / Star Spangled Banner / Purple Haze / Woodstock Improvisation / Villanova Junction, which took 25 years to be released in its entirety for the first time (...on the aforementioned single CD). That manic final solo of Purple Haze, followed by a stunning 5 minute guitar improvisation (which can almost be seen as a seperate composition - at the 1969 concerts he played it quite often in almost the same manner, for example in the lengthy version of 'Spanish Castle Magic' on the long-deleted 3 CD set 'Anthology'), then suddenly slowing down to a heartbreaking blues performance... It's something that's got to be heard to be believed - an emotionally exhausting tour-de-force. - The four previously unreleased tracks are good enough to make the set interesting to newcomers and long time afficionados alike - and, yes, 'Lover Man' is almost in its original state, at least without the usual cut-outs of non-Hendrix soloing.
'Live at Woodstock' would be an excellent first-pick for future fans; in the continuing absence of the Berkeley and Winterland concerts, this is as close as you can get to a definitive live performance of Jimi Hendrix.
