Live At Woodstock (1999)
Created by Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., under exclusive

license to MCA Records, Inc. in 1999.
Peaked at the 90th spot on The Billboard 200 in 1997.
        In August 1994, MCA Records released Jimi Hendrix:

Woodstock, a single-disc collection of highlights from

Hendrix's legendary closing set at Woodstock.
Less than a year later, Al Hendrix won the rights to his son's recordings, and his company, Experience

Hendrix, began reissuing definitive masters of Jimi's catalog. In the summer of 1999, Experience

Hendrix rolled out
Live at Woodstock, which features the entire set over the course of two discs.

Hearing Hendrix's complete concert isn't as revelatory as you'd think, since it just emphasizes that he

overcompensated for his under-rehearsed band by jamming. And does he ever jam — almost

everything clocks in at over five minutes, with a couple weighing in at over ten minutes. Naturally, this will

hardly be seen as a detriment by legions of Hendrix fans, and that's who this set is for. Listening to all of

Live at Woodstock takes dedication and an active interest in the subtleties of Jimi's playing. He had

disbanded the Experience only eight weeks before and was teamed with players who wanted to follow

him, no matter where he went. Unfortunately, the lack of rehearsal meant that they were often striving to

keep up with him; in turn, Hendrix runs wild, spinning off dizzying solos that are as fascinating as they

are frustrating. Taken individually, these performances are usually enthralling, but
Live at Woodstock will

exhaust the average listener. Which is not to say it isn't a worthwhile experience. As a historical

document, it is interesting and revealing, and Hendrix historians undoubtedly will find several of these

performances necessary. But this not an essential addition to the average fan's library, simply because

Hendrix blew minds at Woodstock through excess, not focus.
