The late trailblazing guitar virtuoso James Marshall, known by generations of rock fans
as JIMI HENDRIX would have celebrated his 80th birthday. He was born on 27 November 1942. To celebrate the event a new live album named LOS ANGELES FORUM April 26, 1969 came out last week.
Recorded in the spring of 1969 before a raucous sold-out audience, this captivating
L.A. Forum show by the original JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE with drummer Mitch
Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding, has never before been released in its entirety.
The LP was recorded by Wally Heider and Bill Halverson contemporaneously and remixed by Eddie Kramer (MC5). It was produced by Janie Hendrix, CEO of Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. and the sister of Jimi. The package’s liner notes are by former LA Times staff writer/critic Randy Lewis with a preface by ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons who attended the Los Angeles Forum show, having toured with the Experience, as part of The Moving Sidewalks, his pre-ZZ Top band.
ZZ TOP‘s Billy Gibson was there.
There’s also an accompanying illustrated booklet, 24-pages
in the CD release and 12-pages in the 2LP release.
