Thanks for posting Mopper.
WTF is up with the whistling fans?
I would be so pissed if I was beside someone whistling through the majority of Red House.

I read somewhere that the show started late. Which is mo real excuse for those strung-out Germans to act like assholes.

Phil described when they played Seastones in Fall '74 Germans reacted by whistling loudly.  It's their way of booing.

Surprised Mopper hasn't posted this one yet.  Either way nice tribute to the 50th Anniversary of Electric Ladyland:

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the release of the Jimi Hendrix Experience masterpiece Electric Ladyland, Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, are releasing the Deluxe Edition box set on November 9. Available as either a 3CD/1 Blu-ray set or a 6LP/1 Blu-ray set, both packages include the original double album, now newly remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tapes. For the LP set, Grundman prepared an all analog direct to disc vinyl transfer of the album, preserving the authenticity. Also included is Electric Ladyland: The Early Takes, which presents demos and studio outtakes from this period in Hendrix’s career, plus a new 5.1 surround sound mix of the entire original album by Hendrix’s original engineer Eddie Kramer. This marks the first and only time this has been done with a Hendrix studio album, and gives listeners the original stereo mixes in uncompressed 24 bit/96 kz high resolution audio.

Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At the Hollywood Bowl 9/14/68, part of Experience Hendrix’s Dagger Records official bootleg series, is another exclusive component. The never before released recording captures the band and the mounting excitement that took place just weeks before the release of Electric Ladyland. The Blu-ray also includes the acclaimed, feature length documentary At Last… The Beginning: The Making of Electric Ladyland.

Lastly, Electric Ladyland Deluxe Edition includes a full color, 48-page book containing Jimi’s handwritten lyrics, poem and instructions to his record label, as well as never before published photos from the recording sessions that were shot by Eddie Kramer himself.

Pretty sweet show, lots of great music and amusing banter from Jimi and Noel.

Reminds me of this gem, albeit from Vienna, but close....

I don't have surround sound, but Electric Ladyland in 5.1 makes me kinda wish I did.

Steven Wilson has done a lot of amazing 5.1 stuff. Too bad he wasn't involved for this one.

MY inner completist made me order this.

The first incarnation of the Experience was at the top of their game in mid ’67. These four beautifully recorded tracks were all broadcast in May for German and Swedish TV. For anyone who can understand German, we have included a hilarious German-language preamble as the MC introduces the Jimi Hendrix Experience as ‘music for the future with Donovan-like flowery lyrics and free-form performance...with the full recommendation of Frank Sinatra!‘. All tracks recorded on 12th May 1967 in Offenbach for TV broadcast in Germany, except one track on a TV broadcast, Stockholm, 24th May 1967.

Also: cranking that 5.1 Electric Ladyland.
