“The English pound may have devalued, but the Jimmy [sic] Hendrix Experience is certainly not suffering from lack of support.... The Experience consists of Mitch Mitchell, a drummer who inflicts severe punishment on the skins to create his sound; Noel Redding, a bass guitarist whose tremendous mop of hair makes the Rolling Stones look like West Point drill team; and Jimmy Hendrix, who is probably the finest lead guitarist on either side of the Atlantic. Rock ‘n’ roll is their business and the audience really ‘experienced’ a professional performance. Hendrix caused a lot of frustration throughout his performance by constantly stopping to tune up, or to readjust the amplifiers. However, he is infamous for this and does it only because he is a perfectionist...
There wasn ‘t even standing room available as the show began, and some eighly enthusiasts paid for the privilege of standing to watch the performance. He led into his show with a pounding hard rock arrangement of Sergeant Pepper’s and went from there to do several other numbers in the distinctive Hendrix style. The Experience played ‘Let Me Stand Next To Your Fire’, ‘I Don’t Live Today’, and only slowed the pace slightly when they played ‘Little Wing’. Here Hendrix displayed his great skill on the guitar when he played a lilting slow lead. Also in this song we heard the full richness of the Jimi Hendrix singing voice.
Hendrix took the stage in a multicoloured jacket and dark blue jeans while his drummer Mitch Mitchell threw conservatism to the wind when he wore a complete psychedelic outfit.”
