    Best performances with a Gibson SG

    Im interested in hearing some of Hendrix's playing on a Gibson SG, I know he used it live for Red House often and I believe he used it quite a lot in the studio in later years. Can anybody recommend any good performances or tracks to hear his playing on an SG?
    Thanks

    Dick Cavett Show and Stockholm 69 are recorded and filmed. He used it at the TTG studio in late 68 (there is also a pic of it in the background at his Beverly Hill house), but which songs I don't know.

    If my liner notes memory is correct Jimi used an SG for the lead guitar overdub on the version of 'Izabella' found on the single release "appearing with the name "Hendrix Band of Gypsys" was released on April 8, 1970, by Reprise Records. (wikipedia)." You can get it on the 2cd set below. It's a very different, stinging tone.
