Los Angeles Forum - April 26, 1969 was recorded in the spring of 1969 before a raucous, sold-out audience. This captivating performance of the original lineup - Jimi Hendrix, drummer Mitch Mitchell, and bassist Noel Redding, has never before been released in its entirety.
Before a raucous, sold-out arena, Jimi Hendrix, drummer Mitch Mitchell, and bassist Noel Redding tore through a unique set featuring highlights like "I Don't Live Today," "Purple Haze," "Red House," and an astonishing medley of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" and Cream's "Sunshine Of Your Love."
This pristine recording, newly mixed by Hendrix's longtime engineer Eddie Kramer, captures the original Jimi Hendrix Experience in their unrivaled, peak form. A portion of this performance was previously included as part of the short-lived Westwood One radio documentary box set, Lifelines 1990-1992, but has been unavailable in any form for two decades and this marks the first time ever that it will be available on vinyl.
The double LP release features gorgeous gatefold packaging and a 12-page 12"x12" book complete with liner notes from ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, who witnessed the show firsthand. The CD version includes a 24-page booklet also with Gibbons’ liner notes.
Los Angeles Forum - April 26, 1969 finally gives this seminal performance its proper platform, presenting the complete performance mixed directly from the original eight-track master tapes.
