    Because if you click on it to hear it counts....doesn't mean anyone listened more that a few seconds to see it's BS.

    If you play the whole clip, near the end there is a semi plausible back story described. Doesn't mean its not BS but you need to watch the whole thing before dismissing it out of hand.

    I did go to the end....read the 'story'.....one of the reasons I call it BS.

    Just for the record, that's not what I meant. There's plenty of legit Hendrix videos that don't get even 50,000 views. Hard to explain except for some kind of hype-style algorithm.

    Well....the video has been up for almost 10 years and in 2008 many people were manipulating the view counts...Youtube didn't really crack down on that until 2014....it only has something like 90 'likes' and around 90 'dislike'....which is also odd.

    In my opinion it's not legit. The printing on the back would indicate that. And fact the that it was folded, multiple times to the size of record album makes it appear to be a reproduction that was included in a box set of some kind. Concert posters from that era rarely had printing on the back because of the extra cost, since concert posters were for one time use and to be thrown away after the event. And also it appears to be printed on thin paper, not the usual thicker paper used for posters

    The poster is certainly legit. I had one like it, but traded it long ago. The original poster did have the black and white printing on the back. Sorry folks.
