Editorial Reviews

Winterland is drawn from six stellar shows recorded over three days (October 10, 11 and 12, 1968) at San Francisco's historic Winterland Ballroom. These special performances celebrated the two year anniversary of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and came just as the groundbreaking album Electric Ladyland was released.

Winterland presents some of Hendrix s most spectacular guitar work and is filled with rare live versions of classic songs such as "Manic Depression," "Are You Experienced?," "Tax Free," and "Little Wing" that are not part of any other Sony Legacy release. Fans will also enjoy Hendrix's dramatic interpretations of Cream s "Sunshine Of Your Love" and Howlin Wolf s "Killing Floor" [with the Experience joined by Jefferson Airplane bassist Jack Casady] as well his rendition of Bob Dylan s "Like A Rolling Stone," which has been selected as the lead track for this special release.

This special deluxe box set features never before released music from each of the six unforgettable Winterland performances. The new standard and deluxe editions of Winterland are markedly different from a single disc compilation, long out of print, that was briefly issued by Rykodisc in 1987 and 1988.

The deluxe edition also presents a rare interview with Hendrix recorded backstage at the Boston Garden a few weeks after the Winterland performances. This previously unreleased bonus provides fans with a unique window into Hendrix's views about his background, his approach to the guitar and songwriting and future direction of his music.

The deluxe edition also features a 36 page booked filled with previously unpublished images by acclaimed photographers Robert Knight, Allen Tannenbaum and Jim Marshall as well as an essay by noted Rolling Stone journalist David Fricke.

The bonus disc features an amateur stereo recording made of Jimi's sold out February 4, 1968 Winterland performance.

This official bootleg recording showcases Jimi's love for the blues and includes versions of Howlin' Wolf's "Killing Floor," the Muddy Waters influenced "Catfish Blues" as well a majestic rendition of "Red House". The recording also features an impromptu, extended rendition of Traffic's "Dear Mr. Fantasy" with Buddy Miles sitting in for Mitch Mitchell. "Dear Mr. Fantasy" is presented here in two separate parts. When the recording was originally made, the first side of the tape ended abruptly and came off the spool. The tape operator then hurriedly flipped the reel over, rethreaded the tape and snapped on the record button.

Fortunately, this rough hewn, soundboard recording survived and provides another compelling chapter in Jimi's rich legacy.
