Hopefully something special for number ten. Well I like it :) The Singer Bowl show IMHO goes hand in hand with the recording of the Hollywood Bowl show from September. It's a loud, raucous recording that manages to capture the feeling of the show. Starting with a stunning version of AYE (check out the film footage to see Jimi swap guitars during the intro) the pace of the show never flags with only Like A Rolling Stone to give the audience time to catch breath. There may be better sounding recordings but in terms of excitement and atmosphere this one has it all.
I've included a twelve page booklet that I made up that includes all the contemporary reviews I could find along with many photos from the show. Yes it's also a real treat for all you budding origami enthusiasts :)
Rough recording,but pretty listenable for a 68 show and just a Hendrix show in general.
