I’ve been checking out some stuff about that famous event – Wednesday 22 November 1967. There’s an interesting review of the event by ‘Spinner’ in the local Evening News. He is quite complimentary about Jimmy (sic) Hendrix but otherwise said “Never has a pop show been so deafening and so lacking in good presentations”.
But the big question is – who else played? (I didn’t go)
We know that on the tour overall – 16 cities, mostly twice nightly – the normal bill was Hendrix plus Pink Floyd, Nice, Amen Corner, Move, Eire Apparent and MC Pete Drummond.
But there is a Hendrix website called crosstowncurrents.org which has a number of recollections of the night, raising the following questions:
Did Pink Floyd appear? Or was Syd misbehaving?
Did the Herd replace the Move for this show?
Did Jimi play first with Amen Corner closing the show?
Did the Nice play just one number (“Rondo”)?
