Machine Gun: Jimi Hendrix - The Fillmore East 12/31/1969
Not yet reviewed.
'Machine Gun: The Fillmore East First Show 12/31/69' documents the first of the group's four legendary Fillmore East concerts.
This set presents an assortment of fresh, exciting new songs such as "Earth Blues," "Ezy Ryder," "Stepping Stone," "Burning Desire," and "Machine Gun" — none of which had ever before been issued on disc.
Moreover, nearly all of the group's material had never been performed before an audience.
"We decided that we couldn't do any songs that had already been released," explains Billy Cox. "We wanted to give them something different. So we went at the project in a joyous, creative posture and ultimately developed the repertoire of the Band of Gypsys."
"Machine Gun" stands as one of Hendrix's finest and most influential compositions. Hendrix pushed Delta blues into places its pioneers could not have imagined, fusing his extraordinary instrumental skills within his passionate expression of man's inhumanity to his fellow man.
"Machine Gun" endures as a classic amongst the already classic-drenched Jimi Hendrix canon. Fricke notes of this version, the first that Hendrix and company had ever played in concert, "..Here it is, after 46 years, another revelation – a stunning essay in pain, rage and determined survival, fully formed in its initial outing."
Long sought after by the guitarist's worldwide following, 'Machine Gun: The Fillmore East First Show 12/31/69' presents the complete performance in its original sequence.
