Jimi Hendrix Experience - 1968-11-30 - Cobo Arena, Detroit, Michigan (AUD)
Jimi Hendrix Experience
November 30, 1968
Spanish Castle Magic
I Don't Live Today
Sunshine Of Your Love
Voodoo Child (slight return)
Notes: This is the first source of this show which popped up in the early 1980s and I beleive I was among the first to get it. It was originally though to be from May 2, 1969. It has a weird stereo effect, but adds to the ambience. The majority of the 38 minutes here runs fine, but the second part of Voodoo Child and Red House go a bit haywire on the tape. I tried my best to fix the segement, but it still is rough.
The show almost didn't happen. From Noel Redding's diary:
“November 30 is the date Jimi nearly missed. Mitch and I caught the plane and Jimi never showed. We were met in Detroit by people from Warners and taken to the hotel. [Michael] Jeffery then phoned; “Jimi has freaked out” he says and is refusing to come. I don’t know what Michael said to Jimi but it must have been heavy, for Jimi decides to come at the last minute, though they have to hire a Lear jet to get him there on time. In spite of it all, the show is a good one. Probably played well out of sheer relief.”
Luckily the JHE did go on as two people in the audience were armed with recorders...travel back in time to late 1968!!!
