The Jimi Hendrix Experience at the Royal Albert Hall

The Jimi Hendrix Experience was founded in 1966 and consists of Noel Redding (bass) and Mitch Mitchell (drums) after Hendrix. Purple Haze, The Wind Cries Mary and Hey Joe became classics in rock history, as did Hendrix’s version of Bob Dylan’s All Along The Watchtower. The band sells millions of albums and shows sell out in no time.

Last European origin

In 1969, the Jimi Hendrix Experience was more popular than ever, but they were already playing, perhaps without knowing it at the time, their last show in the United Kingdom. The performance was filmed, but the footage was never discovered by the public. As of 2019, 50 years after the historic concert, the footage is on display at the Royal Albert Hall. According to promotional materials, the footage for the exhibition “has not been published or broadcast commercially.”

The recordings provide a unique view of both Hendrix’s live performance and what happened backstage. In London the band play Sunshine of Your Love by Cream and a cover of Elmore James’s Bleeding Heart. The band also brings out an extra-long version of Room Full of Mirrors. All these songs appeared on the live album 2 years later, in 1971 Experience.

Besides

Later that year, The Jimi Hendrix Experience fell apart when bassist Noel Redding left the band due to mutual tensions. Drummer Mitch Mitchell continued to perform with Hendrix, eventually leading to the legendary Woodstock gig with Gypsy Sun and the Rainbows.
