Alt. Source original info:
This is the most complete version of this jam that I’ve been able to find. It was bootlegged in the 90s (i think) but that release, although sounding a bit better, was not as complete as this torrent. There’s some great playing from all the musicians involved here, and as you can see below this isnt the Experience, its Jimi and friends playing at a jamsession at the Cafe Au Go Go in NYC. I think this is one of the sessions (like the BB King session torrented only days ago) that Jimi recorded himself on his reel2reel as he had the habit of doing around that time. Its a Stereo Soundboard recording but it doesnt sound as clear in some places as i would like it to sound, nevertheless a more complete version than on any bootleg. audio: Jimi on (2-5), with Paul Butterfield on harmonica, Elvin Bishop on guitar, Harvey Brooks on bass, Herbie Rich on organ, Buddy Miles on drums, Phillip Wilson on drums and a certain Jack (James Tatum) on sax, stereo soundboard recording; 80.39 minutes, excellent quality

Remastering info:
Remastering preformed on both sources with Wavelab 5.0 and plugins. All patches preformed with cross fades and overlapping. Most of the hiss on both sources was removed without using noise reduction. On both sources the vocal levels are low through out. Both sources were tracked diffrently which made it more difficult to figure when tracks went where. I used the setlist above because it was found in more places on the net. Plus D01t08(Jam II “Drunk Again”) at the end of the track it sounds like they say “good night folks”. D01t01(Little Wing) thru D01t06(Stormy Monday) the Main Source was used. D01t01(Little Wing) both sources cut/fade out @ 9:13. D01t02(Everything’s Gonna Be Alright) Fades in on both sources. D01t03(Three Little Bears Part 1) Fades in on both sources, digital pop @ 9:59 on both channels removed. D01t04(Three Little Bears Part 2) Main Source Fades out @ 6:15, Alt. Source was used to patch from 6:15 thru 6:24, Alt. Source cuts off @ 6:24. D02t02(Stormy Monday) both sources fade in at the same spot. D02t03(Jam I) and D02t04(Jam II “Drunk Again”) Alt. source was used, levels raise and drop through out both tracks. D01t07(Jam I) drop out on both channels @ 00:15 and 00:45 removed.

Notes

These two shows have been very well documented and they also fall in to the category of having been bootlegged to death. Probably the best of all the bootleg versions is the double Swinging Pig release “On The Killing Floor” (1989) which is now very hard to locate. The versions of the shows here are from the master reels and provide the best sound quality available.

The first show is uninspired while the second is probably one of the best that the band played that year with Mitch and Noel providing an excellent platform for Jim’s playing which is nothing short of extraordinary. I suppose what you have here are the two contrasting sides of the Experience. The group by now were exhausted from their never ending touring, playing to large arenas they had almost lost contact with their audience. Hendrix, especially felt this alienation with an audience who he felt demanded he ‘put on a show’ rather than listen to the music. His aside comments at the start of the first show and the sloppy manner of playing that follows would bear this out. On the other hand The Experience were also by now a finely honed unit that could deliver the goods with astounding brilliance as the second show proves.

But why such a difference between the sets. This was answered by Noel in his 1990 book “Are You Experienced?”

“Sweden. Always the same problem – no drugs. We were forced to drink the killer Schnapps, and it brought on Jimi’s mood for the first set. In desperation I went out between shows and with much persistence managed to score a leaper. We huddled anxiously over the dressing room table, crushed the pill into a powder, shared it out, and snorted it. The second show was much more together and enthusiastic.”
