Product Details for Jimi Hendrix - In The West - Audiophile Double Vinyl
Very often, at the beginning of a show, Jimi Hendrix would ask his audience to 'forget about what happened yesterday or today and start their own world right here'. For this special new edition of the 1971 live album we ask you to do the same!
In The West consists of live recordings from the two incarnations of The Jimi Hendrix Experience, including his legendary Isle Of Wight Festival performance in 1970, where he created a live medley of "God Save The Queen" and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" with a stunned Paul McCartney in the audience.
To Jimi, concerts were snapshots of where the band was at that moment in time, and Electric Ladyland director of engineering Eddie Kramer (and producer of most of Jimi's posthumous live albums) must have realized that this was when The Experience was at its peak.
In The West was the first live album to be released after Jimi's untimely death. Forty years later, respected reissue label Music On Vinyl has re-released it with a number of beautiful extra's: three bonus tracks that have never been released before, along with a booklet of unpublished photographs by Jim Marshall, who was also responsible for the iconic cover artwork.
