“I will never again see a performance by a guitarist-vocalist with that intensity, with that total emotional impact,” says promoter Bill Graham. “It was like an adagio dance. The guitar was the snake, and he was the snake charmer.”
Hendrix was a little more modest about it when he spoke with journalist Al Aronowitz backstage after the show. “Earth, man, earth . . . .” he said. “I want to bring it down to earth. I want to get back to the #blues, because that’s what I am.”
His Fillmore East shows with the Band of Gypsys, featuring bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles, captured Hendrix with his spirit of adventure still in overdrive but his feet planted once again on terra firma. Standing unusually still, his head bowed over his Fender Stratocaster in profound concentration, he had unleashed a rainbow barrage of firealarm feedback, knife-edge riffing, raw soulful melodicism and sunlight harmonies that arced over Cox and Miles’s roadhouse stomp with almost classical grace

Rock'n'Roll, Nothing Else Matters

January 11, 1967, The Jimi Hendrix Experience recorded 'Purple Haze' at De Lane Lea studios in London. Hendrix later stated 'The Purple Haze,' was about a dream he had and that he was walking under the sea." In concert, Hendrix sometimes substituted lyrics for comic effect; "'scuse me while I kiss the sky" was rendered "'scuse me while I kiss this guy" (while gesturing towards his drummer Mitch Mitchell)

JIMI HENDRIX - WOODSTOCK 1969

Marking the 51st anniversary of the original Woodstock, held August 15–18, 1969, on Max Yasgur's dairy farm in Bethel, New York, 40 miles southwest of Woodstock.

To celebrate the anniversary the video here is JIMI HENDRIX performing several numbers from his Woodstock set: Voodoo Child (Slight Return)/The Star Spangled Banner/Purple Haze.

I've upscaled the original clip and improved the colour saturation.

On August 18th 1969, legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix stepped onto the stage at the Woodstock, N.Y., Music Festival and embarked upon an uninterrupted set lasting nearly two hours - one of the longest performances of his career.

Technical and weather delays caused the festival to stretch into Monday morning. The organizers had given Hendrix the opportunity to go on at midnight, but he opted to be the closer.

However, he was not supposed to close Woodstock. Steeped in childhood memories of the song, Woodstock organizer Michael Lang wanted Roy Rogers to come on after Hendrix and play Happy Trails. The cowboy crooner declined, and Hendrix stepped in.

By the time he took to the stage at 9 a.m., the crowd, which once numbered 500,000, had dwindled to fewer than 200,000. With the demands of work and school weighing on them, many fans waited just long enough to see Hendrix begin his set, and then departed.

Hendrix performed with a temporary band. The Jimi Hendrix Experience, with which he had recorded three smash albums, had broken up. Hendrix assembled a group he called Gypsy Suns and Rainbows. One of his largest bands, it included two musicians he played with at the start of his career (bassist Billy Cox and guitarist Larry Lee), drummer Mitch Mitchell (who was part of the Experience), and two percussionists. The group performed just twice more before disbanding.

The band's set concluded with a long medley that included the solo performance of the Star Spangled Banner that would become emblematic not only of Woodstock, but of the 1960s themselves.

When most people think of Hendrix and Woodstock, it is that performance of the national anthem that comes to mind. However, The Star Spangled Banner was not played on its own.

It was part of a medley lasting over half an hour that included hits like Voodoo Child (Slight Return) and Purple Haze, and an unaccompanied improvisation lasting nearly five minutes.

Hello, and a warm welcome to everyone who has joined COLOURING THE PAST.

The page is my attempt to add a little colour to the cheeks of the past. It's not intended to offer anything 'better' than the original black & white footage; just a different take.

Running the page is a one-man operation. I write and research the articles, and edit the videos which involves several hours of work - upscaling, colourising and tweaking in various software.

If you could see fit to make a small donation then I would be genuinely grateful.

Thank you and best wishes, Paul 🙂

Джими - музыкант нового типа

Будучи инструменталистом он понимал, что ему не избежать вокализации и выбор его был правильным - его голос стал дополнительным инструментом, а не наоборот, как это было принято. Такая манера могла бы существовать в джазе, но там вокалисты исполняли скэт - так называемая вокальная импровизация. Инструменталисты же ещё не решались петь в джазе (за исключением Луиса Армстронга), кроме блюзмэнов, которых мы не назовём инструменталистами потому, что блюз был особым способом музицирования и имел свои ярковыраженные правила, как и джаз, впрочем, на том этапе. Такая же функциональная вокализация присутствовала у Джими и в гитарном аккомпанементе. Способ заполнения пауз для укрепления функций ритмо-гармоническими репризами, которые всё время варьировались и создавали свои микроструктуры, питавшие ритм-секцию, которая ещё более усложняла контекст. Как композитор, Джими умел сочинять прекрасные солидные рифы для баса. Басист становился продолжением гитары, как, впрочем, и барабанщик. Таким образом, слушатели получили возможность услышать гитару Джими в троекратном изложении - с усиленными низами, опущенными на октаву вниз, и с ритмической окраской всевозможных ударных ухищрений со звонами, мощными бреками и уплотнёнными грувами.
