Performers, Cast and Crew:
Rolling Stone - 11/03/2005
3 stars out of 5 -- "Playing on the morning after the festival officially ended, Hendrix delivered a fascinating yet ragged set..."
Mojo - 11/01/2005
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he first few bars of the huge, five-minute guitar solo that follows an incendiary 'Purple Haze' are surely among Hendrix's most fearsome."
Nine o'clock on Monday morning, August 18, 1969: while the work force was starting the day, Jimi Hendrix was taking the stage at Woodstock. While hundreds of thousands had already left, 25,000 people remained to see this incredible performance. Hendrix, along with drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Billy Cox, offered masterly renditions of the songs of the recently disbanded Experience ("Hey Joe," "Foxey Lady"), and gave a preview of the blues-based Band of Gypsys ("Izabella," "Hear My Train A Comin'"), as well as Jimi's era-defining rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner." Though the weekend had witnessed some landmark performances by other great artists, this performance from Hendrix is regarded by many as the defining moment in a festival ripe with defining moments.
