Jimi Hendrix - Isle of Wight

This was a great concert from Jimi and the boys. It was a big festival in England, one of Jimi's last shows. He pulls out all the stops and plays everything from Hey Joe to Machine Gun. He really kills it on Voodoo Child and freaks you out with Dolly Dagger. He also play nice numbers like "Hey Baby" and "All Along the Watchtower." He doesn't go on stage until like 3 in the morning because of delays. His outfit for this show was custom made and he looks like a mythical god on the guitar. Mitch and Billy are backing him up at this show, this is a legendary show. He also plays Freedom, which was a new tune for him at the time and not many people had heard it yet. This whole crowd was blown away by his performance. This is a must have for any Hendrix fan.
