Personnel: Jimi Hendrix – lead vocals, guitar :: Mitch Mitchell – drums, backing vocals :: Billy Cox – bass, backing vocals.
Notes: Jimi's sublime LA Forum 1970 show has been making the rounds in record stores on this boot cd released last month. Obviously someone ripped of a fan's painstaking work to merge the "far" and "near" source, pressed it up on some silvers, made some nice artwork based on the original "Enjoy Jimi Hendrix" Coca-Cola motiff bootleg and is charging $25 a pop. No money to Jimi's family or a legit record label, just pure profit, pure ripoff. So here it is for free, to be shared and enjoyed, as Jimi would have wanted. Nice merge here, this is not a soundboard but Jimi's guitar almost sounds like it was patched in at times, it's that clear. His vocals less so, and Billy's bass and Mitch's drums even less!!! What to say about this show, it's spectacular!!! The band is well rehearsed for the fist show of the tour, and what balls to start in LA, but they come through. The "far" source is exactly that, but sounds less so in the merge. The near source is lifted from the Rubber Dubber bootleg of the show...somehow the two compliment each other. Hats off to the original fan who merged these!.<-(from original info file).
