A little muffled and fades in and out between tracks, but well worth the price of admission.
Jimi is apparently frustrated with the crowd, which leads to some of my favorite lyrical variations on Heat My Train.

This is a great-sounding recording of a good show. To me the performance doesn't seem as inspired as, say, Monterey, but I suppose it's not quite fair to compare anything to arugably the greatest JHE show ever (IMO). I don't know why. I can only speculate that the boys were just screwing around having fun. Jimi's appears to be in a fun mood, joking with the audience between songs. They perform the song "tune up time" and announce it as such a couple of times. There's even a little rockin impromptu thingy ala Elvis. Noel throws in a few "thank you"'s and plays guitar with Jimi on Red House (something they did for a while there). It's a good show, the sound quality is great, and the recording complete. This show was released officially as part of the Stages box set.
