That's a weird one for sure. Not sure what they were on that night. Jimi went through the motions duriing Purple Haze , almost like he was keeping an eye on the clock to see if they had filled the time slot that must have been in the contract or some such,
Jimi was definitely off in Gothenburg, not sure why?

After Gothenburg and Stockholm, the Experience started to heat up after 2 solid shows in Copenhagen. The momentum continued this night in Hamburg, W Germany. There is an early show however the quality is poor. Highlights for me is the Train, IDLToday > Red House sequence. Jimi is very patient and jazzy in Train, he quotes The Beatles I Feel Fine, a tune he usually quotes in Hey Joe, first time I've heard him quote that in Train. For Red House and Sunshine of Your Love Jimi would take off his Strat and switch to his white Gibson SG however here after IDLT he segues directly into Red House. The last 3 minutes of IDLT are bombastic setting up a super charged version of Red House. Jimi also played a rare version of Drivin' South after strapping on his SG however it was brief and no where near as good as the 6Oct.1967 BBC version.
