Legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix, performing at the historic 1970 Isle of Wight Festival. The 80 minute set builds slowly, and by the time Hendrix and his trio (Billy Cox on bass, Mitch Mitchell on drums) get to Red House and Machine Gun they're soaring through the heavens and taking us along for the ride.
Hendrix was a monumental, one-of-a-kind artist, and he was at the peak of his form here, tragically, only a mere 18 days before his death.
