The show where everything went wrong?

"After this, Jimi Hendrix might have had a feeling that he was cursed because his Woodstock show was planned to be done late at night at the end of the festival after everyone was tired, and then after performing at around two in the morning, when everyone was tired. There were also a few technical difficulties that happened, but they always say that the show must go on.
I think the set list is one of his best. This was around the end of Hendrix's life, so just about every song that he had done had been done, including the stuff that wasn't released until after he died. I feel that when comparing it to the other big concert that he did with this band, Live at Berkeley (from listening to the albums), his guitar playing stood out here more than it did on the Berkeley album when I first heard them. On the bad side, "Hey Baby (New Rising Sun)" was probably done while the cameramen were reloading because although it's on the short album of the show, it's missing here, and I can guess that it wasn't just deleted for the fun of it because the editors tried to include as much of it as possible.
I think that this is one of the best Hendrix live DVDs and although it's not perfect, it's raw and live, which I like."

"I was pleased with this DVD. It is a live concert and of course it was recorded some time ago so the quality isn't as good as it would be today. But, if you like Jimi Hendrix it's worth your money to buy this concert DVD."
