JIMI HENDRIX Live at Woodstock full concert

JIMI HENDRIX (Gypsy Sun and Rainbows)
at Woodstock. August 18, 1969

Live at Woodstock is a posthumous live album by Jimi Hendrix released on July 6, 1999. The album documents Hendrix's performance with his band Gypsy Sun and Rainbows at Woodstock Festival on August 18, 1969. Many of the tracks on this album were released in 1994 on Woodstock. Apart from the cover medley of "Gypsy Woman" with "Aware Of Love" (both songs by The Impressions) and his original, "Mastermind", which were sung by rhythm guitarist Larry Lee, Live at Woodstock contains the full set played by the band.

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

Hoy, 16 agosto, 75 aniversario de su muerte

Robert Johnson nacido como Robert Leroy Johnson (8 de mayo de 1911 - 16 de agosto de 1938) fue un cantante, compositor y guitarrista estadounidense de blues conocido como "El Rey del Delta blues." Sus grabaciones de 1936 a 1937 muestran una notable combinación de canto, habilidades de guitarra, y talento en la composición que influenciaron a generaciones de músicos, a pesar de solo haber dejado un registro de 29 canciones. Su enigmática vida, pobremente documentada, y muerte a la edad de 27 años han dado lugar a la creación de muchas leyendas sobre su persona. Es considerado como el "El Abuelo del Rock-and-Roll", su locución, la originalidad de sus canciones y su estilo de tocar la guitarra ha influido a una gran gama de músicos incluyendo a John Fogerty, Bob Dylan, Johnny Winter, Jimi Hendrix, The Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers Band, The Rolling Stones, Paul Butterfield, Queen, The White Stripes, The Black Keys, The Band, Neil Young, Warren Zevon, Jeff Beck, y Eric Clapton, quien lo llama "El más importante músico de Blues que haya vivido". Ocupó el 5º puesto en la lista de "Los 100 más grandes guitarristas de todos los tiempos" de la revista Rolling Stone. Fue incluido en el Salón de la Fama del Rock and Roll en 1986 en la categoría de "Early Influence" (Influencias tempranas). Leer más.....

Robert Leroy Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) was an American blues singer and musician. His landmark recordings from 1936–37 display a combination of singing, guitar skills, and songwriting talent that has influenced later generations of musicians. Johnson's shadowy, poorly documented life and death at age 27 have given rise to much legend, including the Faustian myth that he sold his soul at a crossroads to achieve success. As an itinerant performer who played mostly on street corners, in juke joints, and at Saturday night dances, Johnson had little commercial success or public recognition in his lifetime.

Johnson's records sold poorly during his lifetime. It was only after the reissue of his recordings in 1961 on the LP King of the Delta Blues Singers that his work reached a wider audience. Johnson is now recognized as a master of the blues, particularly of the MississippiDelta blues style. He is credited by many rock musicians as an important influence; Eric Clapton has called Johnson "the most important blues singer that ever lived." Johnson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as an "Early Influence" in their first induction ceremony in 1986. In 2003, David Fricke ranked Johnson fifth in Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. Read more...
