If you loved that, this one is right off the scale...
Newly discovered footage of a full concert from Stockholm, 1969...
...36.22 into the recording and Hendrix does something extraordinary.
He lays down the Fender Strat and replaces with a three-pickup, white, Gibson SG.
This ain't good... it's one seriously badass 60s rock guitar - heavier sound and more sustain..
Can't recall Hendrix ever playing one, any other time.
The hell's he gonna do with that thing...
Next intro, what follows is of the most sweet, heavenly, Gibson guitar tones I have heard.
We are talking Peter Green, Paul Kossoff and Jimmy Page territory...
Then, I notice Hendrix turning up the Gibson's volume control...
...and he just lets those pickups run riot...
Aw FFS man.. WTF Almighty!!!!
And that's so far as I have watched.
Had to stop and get thoughts together... it was simply overwhelming.
Think maybe sussed I'm about to hear and see, some of the finest blues guitar from that era.
Deep breaths and switching back on...
