    1970-08-01 Honolulu

    This show was partially recorded and surfaced in WMA format in early 2006.

    It turned up on the EH site in Real Audio format, another lossy conversion....

    This torrent is for the 'original' WMA files, and a FLAC version of a edit i did, some EQ etc.

    The original recording had a 'echo from the future' in the left channel, since the recording itself appears to be mono this channel was dropped in the edit version.

    1 Straight Ahead
    2 Ezy Ryder
    3 Hey Baby
    4 Spanish Castle Magic
    5 Red House

    The partially synched 8mm that came with it is also included.

    Those are the facts, now the opinions:

    I think this was one of the best concerts of 1970.
    Jimi appears to be in a very good mood which is reflected in his playing. Finally, an audience that doesnt scream for 'Wild Thing/Foxy Lady/Purple Haze/burn that guitar Jimi!'
    inbetween all songs. This version of Hey Baby is -afaik- the only live version that has a intro and an ending, its not the usual ending where it would be a medley with the next song - or drum solo.

    So, the show is really good, the audio really isnt.
    Still hope it will be enjoyed!

    this is not the lossless...but until a lossless version surfaces this is it.

    Thanks so much! This show has been elusive for me...I guess there is that old rumor that someone recorded the whole thing on a c-120 tape and that was not enough for the whole show...kinda hard to believe. Maybe one day that tape will show up, in the meantime thx for this!!!!

    Well according to that wikipedia link, it used to be called the Hawaii International Center. However, wikipedia is a user-generated database. I don't count on wiki as gospel-truth.

    Now, about some artwork for this. Isn't firstrays the un-official CCT artwork designer? (hint-hint ... )

    i dont know if anybody noticed, but on this Hey Baby Jimi actually sings 'Hey Gypsy Baby, where do you come in from' - just like on the Rainbow Bridge album, not the often (mis-)interpreted 'Hey Baby, where do you coming from' - which would just be wrong

    it also seems that this is the beginning of the concert, they start with 3 new songs in a row and nobody complains! jimi's playing on those reminds me closely of the 'finished' studio tracks of those songs, moreso than other live shows of that period.

    here's a small torrent for the artwork that Pete H. made, sorry i didnt include it strate away.
