JIMI HENDRIX 'Live at Berkeley' 2LP
Double vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition of this live set from the Rock icon, recorded live at the Berkeley Community Theatre on May 30th, 1970. Hendrix had filled the spacious, nearby Oakland Coliseum the previous year and could have easily done so again, but elected for the more intimate theater setting as the venue. All of the available tickets for both shows were quickly snapped up and on the evening of the concerts, more than a thousand empty-handed fans were turned away. Tensions between patrons, venue security, local police, and those without tickets escalated. Ensconced safely backstage, Jimi was unaware of the turbulence that surrounded the building. The sold out house roared its approval as Jimi and the Experience took the stage. Jimi prefaced the concert with a request he often made of his audience, asking them to' forget about yesterday or tomorrow. This is our own little world tonight.' The evening s second set is presented here in its entirety and original sequence.
