That was extremely enjoyable - had it playing on the big telly, with sound system maxed.... and remember there is a number ten on the volume for a reason..
It just so happenth that I spotted this earlier and noted for maybe later.
How's that time machine coming on...I'm currently reading this:
... Which according to the Amazon blurb:
... "In Laurel Canyon, veteran journalist Michael Walker tells the inside story of this unprecedented gathering of some of the baby boom's leading musical lights―including Joni Mitchell; Jim Morrison; Crosby, Stills, and Nash; John Mayall; the Mamas and the Papas; Carole King; the Eagles; and Frank Zappa, to name just a few...

Haven't seen the speakers bounce around like same for years - not since I played that recording of a Vulcan bomber's engine on take off (seriously!)...
You brought someone to mind and I was looking for the earliest, live, performance I could find of a seminal riff!!
Didn't expect to unearth something quite so truly wonderous.
This, is why volume controls on amps should go up to 12... :badge:
King Crimson... soundtrack of my nascent years and caught them live at Green's Playhouse, Glasgow.Try these...
Thanks for posting that GREAT footage. I worshipped Hendrix in my tender youth and saw him live probably about a year after this concert you posted. What a talent and a great showman.Shivers already and this could be quintessentially awesome.
It's a well known performance, just don't think I've seen a recording before.
I've even found what appears to be the promotional poster (or copy thereof), so it's close as we'll get until that time machine is ready.
That's a beautiful song. I'd forgotten about it - thanks.The Beloved (1993)
I remember this when it first hit my ears and eyes - it looked a bit retro/hippyish but sounded and felt to me curiously futuristic.
I am wondering if, in an alternative universe, that the 1990s carried on forever and peace carried on breaking out everywhere globally. It all started to go a bit shit about 1998.
So delighted to hear.Thanks for posting that GREAT footage. I worshipped Hendrix in my tender youth and saw him live probably about a year after this concert you posted...
That's really interesting and there's a terrific commentary online, which covers this aspect in fine detail:Between 1973-77 there was a brief window of opportunity where Britain was at least prepared to entertain the idea that there could also be listenable music coming out of Europe...
