Full Show Friday: Jimi Hendrix Experience 1968 Queens, NY

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's. These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Jimi Hendrix!

For June, The Masters Focuses on Jimi Hendrix

Jimi was a whirlwind of sight and sound when he took to the stage in the second half of the 1960's. There was literally no one like him before and many imitators since. Today we go to Queens New York in the year 1968.

This is a quick little recording taken from The Singer Bowl in Flushing Meadows Park back in 1968 of the the Jimi Hendrix Experience. It isn't pro shot, but it is an amazing capture of a a few of the songs from a set of sonic feedback, banging, chaos and rhythm. 

Levels are all over the place but it has a DIY feel that is pretty rad. While not complete, the playing makes up for it, just check out that scorching solo to close 

It is a pretty cool way to wrap up this month Masters focus with an NYC rocking set, Enjoy:
