    I am a Hendrix Fan too from India and also play most of His numbers. I'd like to exchange notes with Jesse Pearson if you would'nt mind. My email is kharshiingf@yahoo.com..
    Here in India it is only in the recent past that we have been able to grab on to some 'good' music. Earlier it was only thru some copied tapes or bootlegs, or sometimes when lucky.....vinyl LP's. As such comparisons between the two Videos is not possible on my part. But I have heard most of Jimi's concerts on audio and I must agree that Jimi was definitely not at his best in the Isle of Wight Festival (although as a kid I have played the vinyl LP version perhaps more than 3,000 times till it has started improvising with the sound of frying chips). BUT ONE CAN STILL HEAR JIMI CRYING AND SCREAMING THROUGH HIS GUITAR.
    Regards

    FRANK

    Re: Disappointment

    I have been playing Jimi songs on guitar for many years, he was connected. The Berkley show? there was a movie on the Berkley show that had him dressed in blue milky licker clothes with bad camera work. The best part was the beginning showing him at sound check jamming with Mitch and Billy, that alone is worth the price for the film. If the Isle of wright show doesn't have "midnight lightning", then they need a hip guitar player to start working on the film before they put it out. It is one of the deepest blues Hendrix ever played(I'm calling long distance on a perfect saxaphone, my head is dizzy and shaking, good lord my whole soul is so tired and aching, feel like I got run over by public opinion and the past...) Now that gentleman, is Hendrix! The red house version on Isles of Wright is tired and drawn out and not his best at all of that song. I play several different versions note for note, and I use a couple of licks from that version but overall it's tired. The Hendrix step sister is very hip and cool and doing a great job, luvya baby!
