    Douglas 1991 Expanded (7 unreleased tracks from original IOW) Polydor release. Front cover, Back Cover, CD and insert. Lots of edits on this one. Sound is pretty good.

    2002 EH MCA CD release. (2 CD edition) Eh also released a highlights edition which seems to be easier to find. Front Cover, CDs, CD with foldover, picture with CDs removed, front cover of booklet, back cover of booklet.

    Billed as the complete show finally although Hey Baby is inexplicably edited. Comes with a 23 page booklet. Very loud EH MCA CD. If you crank this one the very definition of CD listener fatigue will set in before you finish listening to the complete show. (IMHO)

    The only concert of Jimi I find hard to watch and listen to. In From The Storm is awesome though, and watching Jimi behind the amps before the show starts is fascinating. I know many folks love this version of Machine Gun, but .......I just have so many mixed feeling about this one.

    And what was Janie smoking? Jimi is dressed like he's on fire, so the cover is basically Red and black, and it's called Wild Blue Angel? Yeah Jimi said it to the MC, but even he had enough sense not to announce him that way. "ladies and gentlemen, Wild Blue Angel!" and then out walks Jimi dressed in red! Are people at EH afraid to tell Janie an idea stinks?

    Outasight, as welcome as your comments are this is the Knowledge base. We kind of encourage more factual based posts here. What you say here may be more at home in an existing thread over at Third Stone or New Releases. Or you could start a new thread if you feel the need. Thanks.
