    1969-04-20 Love Field Dallas

    This was kindly posted by J. Lucas and I managed to get a video upload of it working here!
    The original find came with the following ....................

    The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Love Field, 4/20/69
    by Paula BosseMy Tiny Tim post from a few days ago has been surprisingly popular — who knew Tiny Tim was still so admired! I tracked down the original source of one of the clips I’d used — which I had stumbled across on YouTube — and found that the clip comes from a longer video of footage from the WFAA Newsfilm Collection, housed at the Hamon Arts Library at SMU. Jeremy Spracklen — the Moving Image Curator — compiled the short video (see below) and posted it a couple of months ago on the Hamon Library blog. The Tiny Tim footage is great, but there’s also Glen Campbell (in a very short discussion on the importance of Tommy Smothers to his career), and… oh my god, footage of Jimi Hendrix, standing on the tarmac of Love Field with bandmates Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding on April 20, 1969, giving a great, relaxed interview to a very lucky Channel 8 reporter.

    **
    Jimi Hendrix appeared at least 4 times in Dallas:
    • Feb. 16, 1968: Fair Park Music Hall
    • Aug. 3, 1968: Moody Coliseum, SMU
    • April 20, 1969: Memorial Auditorium (where he was headed after the Ch. 8 interview)
    • June 5, 1970: Memorial Auditorium

    Dallas Morning News, Jan.. 21, 1968
    DMN, Feb. 25, 1968 (click to see larger image)
    DMN, July 28, 1968
    Two surprising errors (grammatical and factual) appear in a Neiman-Marcus tie-in ad (of sorts) which states that Jimi would be at Memorial Auditorium, rather than Moody Coliseum. Despite the error, it’s cool that Neiman’s was expanding its cultural horizons to include someone like Jimi Hendrix in one of its ads (which was featuring teen fashions, but still). N-M has always had its finger on the pulse of current fashions — and Jimi Hendrix was certainly fashionable.

    The Flashback Dallas website says the footage was filmed on April 20, 1969, which makes sense as they played Dallas that night and Love Airfield is in Dallas.

    Re: Dallas

    This footage is so precious because there is relatively very little where he explains himself and it's without fault far removed from the trippy image thrown on him during and after his short life: he always comes over as highly intelligent, sensitive, quick-witted, very aware of the moment and humorous, easy to laugh at things and even himself. Thanks!
