Jimi Hendrix | The Cry of Love Tour | Honolulu, Hawaii

This was the final concert of the second North American leg. The date, August 1st, 1970 and the Honolulu International Center (Neal S. Blaisdell Center) was sold out. Billy Cox on bass, Mitch Mitchell on drums and the man on the guitar, Mr. Jimi Hendrix.

Here is a link to his set list from that night - http://goo.gl/4Tr6gx

Here is a review of the concert:
Review by Wayne Harada for Billboard Magazine, August 29th 1970:

Jimi Hendrix
H.I.C. Arena, Honolulu

Call it drawing strength: Jimi Hendrix had a sell-out house of 8,400 in his third Island appearance in as many years. He displayed his audio-visual hurricane Experience Aug. 1 at the H.I.C. Arena.
It was a trip to Decibel City: a cacophony of electrical storms, coupled with a blizzard of frenzied artistry. It was loud and lethal for the senses, but the wizard of the whining guitar had warned his audience early in the program: “It’s going to be loud. It will get louder. It will get loudest.” He wasn’t kidding.
The audience of hip and young folk dug it. Hendrix appeared, looking like a Madam Butterfly in his Kimono-sleeved outfit with psychedelic oranges and greens, and his music was equally colorful: emphatic, trance-like, piercing, ranting, riveting.
There were the landmarks: “Foxy Lady,” “Purple Haze.” Plus some bonus ramblings, such as “Easy Rider.” The now-classic “Star-Spangled Banner” enabled Hendrix to indulge in theatrics, simulating machine-gun fire and bombs bursting in air.
Mitch Mitchell on drums and Billy Cox on bass augmented Hendrix’ consistent guitar manship and vocals.

Chas Chandler: The man who discovered Jimi Hendrix

Jimi was discovered by the ex-Animal bassist, Bryan "Chas" Chandler in the Summer of '66. Chas was instrumental in getting Jimi to London, building the band (The Experience - Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding) around him and getting him a record deal with Track Records.

Chas was also the sole genius behind the plan of taking Hendrix out of America, bringing him to the most swinging place - London, release a couple of 'smoking' albums (Are You Experience & Axis: Bold As Love) and then unleashing him back to the US - a brilliant strategy!

Read more about the man and visionary in this well chronicled article from the BBC.

Thanks for the original share +Oleg Moskalensky :)

A Jimi Hendrix Father's Day Collage

Here are some photos of Jimi with his dad, Al Hendrix, at various stages in their lives. Early in his career or before he became famous, Jimi played the Chitlin' Circuit (https://goo.gl/EoOnV2) and he would often write to his dad. Even at the height of his career, Jimi was in constant contact with him.

After leaving the Circuit in '65 he moved to New York City where he struggled as a musician. His big break came a year later when he was discovered by ex-Animal bassist, Chas Chandler. Chas took Jimi to England in September, 1966 and the rest is history.

Like A Rolling Stone

Jimi Hendrix was an avid fan of Bob Dylan and it's ironic that one of Jimi's most iconic songs is Dylan's, "Like A Rolling Stone".
In this video, Jimi performs the Bob Dylan classic, at the '67 Monterey Pop Festival, and he plays it with swagger and confidence - he owns it!
