Stuart's weekly series of old vinyl memories over at his blog of note, so here you have it, this is a record which celebrates Jimi's last show...warts and all.
My copy of the Jimi Hendrix album Live At The Isle of Wight, was released on Polydor and dates from 1971 (I bought mine in 1979 during an OTT spree grabbing whatever Hendrix LP I could).
I remember reading that Jimi's Isle of Wight performance was disappointing, besieged by technical problems and not helped by the fact he didn't get his slot on stage until around midnight(?).
You can see his set on the DVD 'Wild Blue Angel'.
I like the record for one song in particular, the version of Foxy Lady. The song starts off with Jimi, all the whole feedback is building up eventually drowning out the speech. Only part of that is shown on the following clip...
While living in my first flat I was reduced to using the album's runaway feedback intro to Foxy Lady as a Volume 11 retaliatory strike against my unsavoury Beastie Boys loving neighbour. He never disturbed me again after that, so I did not need to resort to the ultimate sonic attack - Motörhead!
Or perhaps Venom, who've been known to kill 99.9% germs dead etc.
