James Marshall Hendrix - Monterey (1967)

In 1967, Hendrix played his first major American concert
after getting his shit together in the UK.

Coming on stage, The Experience were a unknown quantity

With only a nine song set, Jimi tore through "Foxy Lady,
Hey Joe, Purple Haze" + more, turned "Wild Thing" into
a blazing, destructive sonic prayer and walked off the
stage as the most famous guitar player in the world.

Essential - Listen

Don't know how long this will stay up - I have heard the
Hendrix Estate are shit hot about takedowns but to quote
The Bard - "I come to praise Jimi, not bury him."
