About this album

Jimi Hendrix, Billy Cox and Buddy Miles re-form as the Band of Gypsies for a succession of spectacular gigs at The Filmore East.
Unlike The Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Band of Gypsies take a more driving approach to their playing, running extensive jams seething with raw earthiness, groove and at times explosive power. Cox and Miles together weave between balls out heavy rock patterns and funk rhythms that fuel Jimi’s playing. Tracks such as Machine Gun, Who Knows and Power to Love really shed light on the musical force of Jimi Hendrix. Using tight blues figures with a loose approach to the playing, one cannot miss his penchant for improvisation, as he’s very good at it.
This is Hendrix at his best as a guitar player, and is a must for avid Rock, Funk and Hip Hop heads alike.
