THE NEW YORK TIMES - by Robert Shelton:

“There was an air of tenseness surrounding the New York Rock Festival Friday night at Singer Bowl in Flushing Meadows Park, Queens. An overflow audience of 18,000 turned out to hear Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Chambers Brothers and the Soft Machine.
The previous festival meeting, on Aug. 2, ended with a chair throwing melee, so everyone was braced for trouble, although it never developed. About 70 special guards failed to report and several dozen city policemen were called in. Matters were not helped by cramming in an additional 1,000 standees. Many of the ushers didn’t have a clue as to where the numbered seats were, and were surly about their ignorance. Glaring stadium lights during most of the evening heightened the crisis atmosphere.
The announcer, Scott Muni, skillfully kept the proceedings some what tranquilized. There were three attempts by individuals to charge onto the stage, but matters were quickly put under control.
The evening’s star, Mr. Hendrix, gave an exciting performance with his trio, but he marred it with a concluding violent onslaught, ramming his guitar through the fabric of a loudspeaker. When are such rock stars as Mr. Hendrix and the Who going to realize such twisted showmanship is unhealthy and unnecessary?
Apart from Mr. Hendrix’s segment, the evening was not distinguished musically. The Chambers Brothers, showing up late again, continue to rely on their three or four routine rousers. They clearly need to broaden their material.
That great singer, Miss Joplin, was not in top form. She was not mixing too well with her quartet, Big Brother and the Holding Company....
Apart from his furious finale, Mr. Hendrix continues to be one of the most compelling performers working these days. His blues wailing and his guitar virtuosity are unparalleled, and his extroverted showmanship is a brilliant form of total musical theatre. But, again, why tear the theater down?”

THE VILLAGE VOICE by Annie Fisher:

“That the house is Jimi Hendrix’s is clear the minute he comes in sight, with that funny, private, oddly modest bearing he has when he’s not playing. Audience is up and shouting. He wipes his nose with a Confederate flag. The monster lights are finally dimmed. The lazy-susan is backside to us for the first two numbers. Our turn, we get a slow blues, groovy....
He’s getting better than $500 a minute for this show, one hour, and that’s not an inflated price. He’s worth it. But he shouldn’t be playing this date. Rock outside is a gas, but stadium concerts should be left to groups like the Rascals or the Four Seasons, not anyone who has original musical ideas.
We get another good look at the back of the equipment as they do ‘Foxey Lady.’ Then they revolve back to us. A kid who’s been sitting quietly on the steps of the stage (what are those kids doing there anyway!) unexpectedly dashes onto the carousel. The house lights blast back on. In a flash two equipment men get him back to the steps. Mike Jeffery, Hendrix’s manager, who hasn’t been visible all night, and Jerry Stickles his road manager, who has been in his usual beleaguered pose, are instantly at the foot of the steps. The music never stops. The kid lies down. Stickles wants him off-stage altogether. Kid protests angrily... Cop pulls kid off, a little force there. I’m looking back at the carousel to see how the musicians are faring... So I miss what happens next. Horrified, the girl next to me says, ‘My God, all those cops on that one kid!’
Awful things are happening at another corner of the stage, in the audience. It’s the same kid, and I see a cop, among what look like three dozen solid, forcing the kid to the ground by using a nightstick some way on his shoulders... As suddenly as it started it’s all over, a phalanx of uniforms hustling out the musicians’ entrance, the kid apparently in the middle, the barricade apparently back in place....
So the question is now whether Jimi will go ahead with his freak-out climax. Earlier he had eaten his guitar. Yeah, he finishes it off, a sort of subdued version, charging his equipment - guitar neck first, carefully deflecting so as not to really bust the speakers or his axe, then squatting obscene across the axe, merry-go-round-round- round-round-round. For what? He’s a genius - what’s he need that corn for? You don’t really think he plays with tongue and teeth, do you? After all, you’ve seen him hold his guitar at arm’s length and play one-handed with his fingers on the neck.
Well, it sells a lot of seats to people who could care less about the music (they ate it up on Friday!), and if there’s plenty of music going down besides there’s really nothing wrong with selling seats if you weren’t born so affluent you can disdain what money can buy if Mummy can’t.
Anyway, it’s a put-on and I think he probably has fun doing it and sharing the fun - if you’re experienced, Of course, it doesn’t have anything to do with the music, because Jimi Hendrix is a genius”

RAT SUBTERRANEAN NEWS :

“What was expected to be the super-show of the summer.. .turned out instead to be only the most vulgarly sensational and poorly managed....
The major problem was the entire concept of the theater-in-the- round staging. The whole stage would revolve, sometimes in the middle of a number, throwing the performers off-balance and preventing the ‘backstage’ half of the audience from seeing. This was especially painful during the Jimi Hendrix Show (SEE him pluck out America The Beautiful on the guitar with His Teeth! SEE him fuck his guitar before your unbelieving eyes! SEE him Shake That Thing!). And as a finale you’ll watch in horror and amazement as Jimi attacks the amplifiers with the neck of his guitar! (Cheap Trills should have been reserved as the trademark for the Jimi Hendrix Experience)... You could hear shrieks and other weird response from the other side of the stadium and you knew he was doing SOMETHING (dirty) but all you could see was the wall of amps.
The police were another obstacle. They were out in force as usual, concentrated in groups around the stage. At the beginning of the concert, a beefy woman who looked like a police matron or a washer- woman circulated among the cops, dispensing wads of cotton from a huge ball, which they quickly stuffed in their ears. They weren’t going to let any of that evil music get in to confuse their minds. Later, they proved that nothing had gotten through by almost starting a riot after roughing up some kid who rushed on stage to get close to Hendrix. The pigs massed four deep along one side of the stage while the audience in the area flashed V-signs and hurled small objects, united in a feeling against a common enemy for a common music.
The show itself was a little too familiar. Everyone did their usual thing... Hendrix put on a deja vu performance with one exception. That was his version of ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ which, while not fantastic, was strong and made me re-appreciate Dylan’s song and Hendrix’s voice. Mainly, it was a departure from the established Hendrix program, which needs some departures. Axis: Bold As Love is a fine second album, showing Jimi knows how to move forward and not just stand still like a hummingbird.. proving he can do something besides overblown supersongs like ‘Purple Haze.’ Hendrix is justly proud of this progress in his sound and we can expect a further step in the new album, but in concert he seems frozen at some point in time a year or two ago. Soul on ice.”

BILLBOARD - by Fred Kirby:

“New York - The Aug. 23 program of the New York Rock and Roll Festival at Singer Bowl more than lived up to advance billing as the The Jimi Hendrix Experience gave one of it’s finest local performances to date to complete the strong programme. The lack of serious technical problems is what made Hendrix, always an exciting performer, even better than in many previous local appearances. As the Reprise trio took time to set up, Hendrix promises to ‘make it up in spades.’ He apparently was referring to his previous New York appearance at Fillmore East [10 May] when constant static hindered an otherwise fine effort.
His bluesy singing was first rate; his guitar playing, superb, and his stage presence, electric. From the opening ‘Are You Experienced?’ every number hit the mark. An unusual aspect of the set was the singing along by members of the audience. At first, this was only slight, but by the time the group hit ‘Purple Haze’ it was widespread. A minor disturbance during ‘Hey Joe’ didn‘t interrupt a strong wailed version. The disturbance however resulted in the lights being turned up. Hendrix, with superb aplomb, asked the audience to join with him in singing ‘Wild Thing’. Hendrix ended this final number with guitar playing of other themes, including a wrong-note ‘Star Spangled Banner’. Among the other good numbers were ‘Foxy Lady’, ‘Fire’ and Bob Dylan’s ‘Like A Rolling Stone’.
Hendrix, one of the top echelon of today’s pop guitarists, stole the show. The vastness of Singer Bowl seemed congenial to the trio’s highly amplified sound. Whether erect or on the floor, calm or physically assaulting the amplifiers, his playing was outstanding. And Hendrix, who has jammed with many other groups, clearly relishes playing, especially as well as he played on Aug. 23.”

Electric Thing a écrit:
Voici une source présentant en une seule partie l'intégralité (?) du film, soit un peu plus de 20 mn :

- Are You Experienced/Fire/Purple Haze/Hey Joe/Wild Thing
Le lien semble mort (peut-être que quelqu’un d'entre vous l'a copié sur son disc et peut éventuellement la remettre sur YouTube !)... et je n'ai pu retrouver que ça (seulement 10') :
