Live at Woodstock

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steph Paynes
Rising from the mud of Max Yasgur's farm at 9 a.m. on August 17, 1969, Jimi Hendrix's radical "Star Spangled Banner" was an apt metaphor for the music festival that became a cultural signifier. That song, in all of its buzz-bomb magnificence, still flies like a tattered freak flag over the Woodstock nation, defining that gorgeous, fleeting moment when anything -- any sound at least -- seemed possible. The two-disc JIMI HENDRIX LIVE AT WOODSTOCK, the ninth in a series of pristinely remastered archives assembled by the Hendrix family, brings to life the iconic 140-minute Woodstock set minus two songs in all its anarchic ferocity. Jimi didn't think much of this gig: The ...

Rising from the mud of Max Yasgur's farm at 9 a.m. on August 17, 1969, Jimi Hendrix's radical "Star Spangled Banner" was an apt metaphor for the music festival that became a cultural signifier. That song, in all of its buzz-bomb magnificence, still flies like a tattered freak flag over the Woodstock nation, defining that gorgeous, fleeting moment when anything -- any sound at least -- seemed possible. The two-disc JIMI HENDRIX LIVE AT WOODSTOCK, the ninth in a series of pristinely remastered archives assembled by the Hendrix family, brings to life the iconic 140-minute Woodstock set minus two songs in all its anarchic ferocity. Jimi didn't think much of this gig: The sextet that would eventually become the Band of Gypsys was ill-prepared and unwieldy, and besides, it was too damn early in the morning. Five previously unreleased tracks will delight devotees --"Message to Love," "Spanish Castle Magic," with its uncharted solo, a feisty "Lover Man," a sinister "Foxey Lady," and a soulful "Hey Joe." But it's "Jam Back at the House," a polyrhythmic peek into what Jimi might have en-fusioned had he lived a little longer, and the final 30 minutes of risky, soaring, and wondrously intuitive guitar playing that will get you back to the garden.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
In August 1994, MCA Records released Jimi Hendrix: Woodstock, a single-disc collection of highlights from Hendrix's legendary closing set at Woodstock. Less than a year later, Al Hendrix won the rights to his son's recordings, and his company, Experience Hendrix, began reissuing definitive masters of Jimi's catalog. In the summer of 1999, Experience Hendrix rolled out Live at Woodstock, which features the entire set over the course of two discs. Hearing Hendrix's complete concert isn't as revelatory as you'd think, since it just emphasizes that he overcompensated for his under-rehearsed band by jamming. And does he ever jam -- almost everything clocks in at over five minutes, with a couple weighing in at over ten minutes. Naturally, this will hardly be seen as a detriment by legions of Hendrix fans, and that's who this set is for. Listening to all of Live at Woodstock takes dedication and an active interest in the subtleties of Jimi's playing. He had disbanded the Experience only eight weeks before and was teamed with players who wanted to follow him, no matter where he went. Unfortunately, the lack of rehearsal meant that they were often striving to keep up with him; in turn, Hendrix runs wild, spinning off dizzying solos that are as fascinating as they are frustrating. Taken individually, these performances are usually enthralling, but Live at Woodstock will exhaust the average listener. Which is not to say it isn't a worthwhile experience. As a historical document, it is interesting and revealing, and Hendrix historians undoubtedly will find several of these performances necessary. But this not an essential addition to the average fan's library, simply because Hendrix blew minds at Woodstock through excess, not focus.

    Hendrix Rules! but....

    This is not the complete show! I was disappointed when I found out! The songs featuring Larry Lee on lead vocals were left out: "Mastermind" and the excellent cover of The Impressions' "Gypsy Woman".
    Elsewhere you can hear the great playing from Hendrix but this CD would have been much better with those two songs!

    Live at Woodstock

    If you are a devoted Jimi fan you must have this CD and if you have a DVD player, get the DVD. The two together are simply mind blowing. The DVD is not as inclusive as the CD but well worth the money. Eye candy for any Jimi fan. Get the DVD and keep an eye on his right thumb. Amazing!!

    Live at Woodstock

    I just purchased this album and was completely blown away by it. This is definaltely an album for the devoted Jimi fan. I suppose it could be exhausting for the average listener but for the dedicated Jimi fan, this is a must have. The version of ''Voo Doo Child (slight return)'' is astounding. What this man could do with a guitar is amazing to me and in my opinion will never be duplicated by any artist.
