Celebrating The 80th Birthday Of JIMI HENDRIX With New High-Quality Live Album ‘LOS ANGELES FORUM – 1969’


27 November 2022

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
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.

Crazy Couple ROBERT FRIPP & TOYAH Keeps On Rocking And Covering At Home

9 February 2021

Robert Fripp (best know as member of legendary prog rock band King Crimson)
and his equally famous British wife TOYAH WILLCOX (8 top 40 hits and over more
than 20 LPs) are entertaining us every week, for a while now, with covering classic

Last week they fabricated a rambling cover of Joan Jett’s I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll, and
now they show their love for the late great guitar genius Jimi Hendrix. The couple’s rendition of his awesome 1967 killer Purple Haze is – as we are already used to by
now – crazy, creaking and squeaking, screamy and noisy, and big fun to watch.

Excuse me while I kiss the sky

Jimi’s original

A couple of weeks ago a JIMI HENDRIX documentary called Music, Money, Madness… Jimi Hendrix in Maui saw the day of light. It’s the incredible story of a gig by the late genial sound-breaking guitarist, in front of a few hundred spectators, on a windy cow
farm, next to a volcano, on the island of Maui in Hawaii.

A pretty special picture/video/Blu-ray according to British music magazine UNCUT: “Directed by John McDermott, Music, Money, Madness – Jimi Hendrix Experience Live In
Maui attempts to unpick a wild tale with the help of a tremendous batch of interviewees.”

All details and full review here.

Here’s the cool trailer

Together with the video/ Blu-ray version a package Live In Maui – a 2 CD set or 3 LP set
is included, featuring Hendrix, Billy Cox, and Mitch Mitchell at the height of their playing powers, newly restored and mixed by longtime Hendrix engineer Eddie Kramer. You
can buy all the stuff here.
