I can understand people wishing that both performances had been released as a single package but this is a terrific performance with excellent sound quality.
I’ve tried to limit my Hendrix live albums to one from each year with Band Of Gypsys/Fillmore east being my 1970 album but this is so good, I think I’m going to have to break my rule.
