Equally as revelatory is one of the two alternate versions included of "Machine Gun," every bit as stunning as the better-known version. Though this new edition hardly makes all previous incarnations obsolete, it presents the man at his most challenged and brilliant.

    more from this reviewer

    Greatly expands the old Band of Gypsys album

    This is so much better than the original short album as to make that old album obsolete. This is a great concert and Hendrix is in top form here.

    Hendrix Rules! but...

    This is not as good as it could have been....they should have given us the complete four shows!!! Where''s "Ezy Ryder"? There's no alternate take of "Message To Love" either! Too much material from the '70 January 1st shows not enough material from the superior '69 December 31st gigs!
    The song "Stop" was played three times: on both '69 shows and the first January 1 show which is the one they chose for release and it's the WORST version of the three!!! No kidding! The guitar was out of tune!

    Not Too Bad

    I don't know why the last reviewer rated it this badly, first of all how often do you get to hear the Band of Gypsys on CD. The BOG album is too short, they should at least add some songs on the CD version. The one disappointment to me hear is the songs chosen to be featured on here. They played a lot of other sons there too, I really wanted to hear Ezy Ryder live here. They also should release the 1dt Berkeley Show on CD.
