This was a magical time in the history of music - at least for us Boomers- especially for me, who grew up in Berkeley in the 60's, when the music scene was so damn good - that was thankfully captured on film. I had the vinyl back in the day, but it vanished somewhere along the line. So I started doing a search for a CD of this album, and was not able to find one - only vinyl and this DVD. So I opted for the DVD, as the visual is so much a part of the whole experience. I realised a few minutes into it that I have seen this before - on more than one occasion, on TV channels like PBS or VH1 Classics, once in a blue moon. So I jumped on it!!! And I will not ever regret it!!! The individual performances themselves are phenominal, when you stop to really think about it! I mean, this was Jimi Hendrix & The Experience's first ever U.S. appearance, after Jimi came back from his time in the U.K. And then there's Otis Redding, who was playing for the very first time to this type of audience - and he grabbed it and ran with it all the way past the goal post - and was greeted with open hearts! In my personal opinion, these are two of the best performances by some of the best musicians of our generation. Of course, we can't leave out "Bob Dylan's grandmother" and Noel Redding, not to mention Booker T. and the MG's backing up Otis Redding, along with the Mar-keys' solid horn section! And I, for one, am so grateful and thrilled to have these precious recordings in my possession once again.!!! PS - the commentaries are fabulous, as well, because each song is looked at individually, with all the special stories that go along with each one. Then additional interviews shed even more light on a very special time in the history of music. I highly recommend this DVD!!!!! And the vinyl, as well. Thank you!!!
