JIMI HENDRIX (Gypsy Sun and Rainbows)
at Woodstock. August 18, 1969
The recording, sound mix and the 1999 remix were completed by Eddie Kramer, who has pointed out that the conditions were primitive; in view of that, the result has been acclaimed, though the radical editing results in the group sound being reduced to a three piece of Hendrix, Cox and Mitchell. Lee, as noted above, and the two percussionists are essentially edited out of the mix. The original recording of the complete performance can be heard on several bootleg releases and the full group is clearly audible, notably on "Foxey Lady" and Voodoo Child (Slight Return), where the volume of the two percussionists and Lee's guitar are noticeably a part of the whole.
The DVD of the performance was re-released in 2010 with the entire performance uninterrupted with several 'never-before-seen' performances included - Foxey Lady, Message To Love, Hey Joe, Spanish Castle Magic and Lover Man with a DTS 5.1 mixed by Eddie Kramer and a regular 2.0 soundtrack
