Jimi Hendrix - Blues At Midnight (Bootleg FLAC)
One of my favourite Jimi Jam!!! A must have!!!
This live set documents Hendrix at the genesis of his powers. While not a rock musician per se yet, Hendrix has
already introduced a revolutionary approach to the blues sound and melody.
For Hendrix, the guitar was an extension of the human voice.
These tunes are brilliantly melodic and exploratory, with a refreshing angular vocabulary.
The band occasionally strains at the seams here, with the all-star septet bursting with clamorous tribal energy.
It\'s evident that Jimi is a noisy guitarist who employs volume as a tool for tension and release. ~ GuyGadebois

I grabbed this gem at a shop in New York City back in the mid 90\'s with my best friend, \'Rich G\'.
Tracks 1-6 were recorded live at the Cafe Au Go Go on March 17th 1968, 152 Bleeker Street,
Greenwich Village, New York City.
Track 7 was recorded live at The Generation Club on April 15th 1968, 52 West 8th Street, New York City.
The Cafe Au Go Go show also included Paul Butterfield, Elvin Bishop, Harvey Brooks, Buddy Miles,
Herbie Rich, James Tatum, and Philip Wilson.
The Generation Club also included B.B. King, Buzzy Feiten, and Al Kooper.
If you\'re not familiar with this recording, it can best be described as a bunch of structured \'jams\'.
If you\'re into lyrics, this one\'s NOT for you!!!
If you\'re into great instrumentals, particularly electric guitar, JUMP ON THIS!!
The sound quality is very nice. I\'d rate the SQ as a solid EX, in my humble opinion.
Crowd noise can be heard at times, but it\'s faint at most. There are also a few fade-in/fade-outs,
but almost hardly worth mentioning.
This is definitely one of the better sounding live performances with Jimi Hendrix I\'ve heard.
