    I am a much happier man. A few months ago I bought the Berkeley 2nd set on CD, so now I have the entirety of one of the shows, plus bits of another. The sound quality is amazing. It was well worth the seventeen quid I forked out for it.

    I still think that, regardless of the filming tricks of which Peter Pilafian made use, a film of both complete sets would be a great idea. I, for one, would be prepared to buy it. Berkeley was wonderful. As great concerts go, it is comparable with Bill Evans's 'Sunday at the Village Vanguard' and Miles Davis's concert from the Lincoln Center (sic) in 1964.

    Berkeley hasn't had a release, as frankly, it was rather badly filmed. As you've probably seen from the video version, the cameraman for some reason prefered to concentrate on close-up face shots...which is most frustrating when you want to see Hendrix actaully playing the guitar!

    Also, I believe that though the concert was filmed in it's entirety, all that's left now is the same footage avaialble on the video.

    A DVD Berkeley would just be a DVD version of the version that's already available on video. It's a damn shame the performances weren't filmed in the same professional manner as Blue Wild Angel, as msucially they FAR surpass the decidedly dodgy Isle Of Wight gig.
