There's one obvious area where you can trace the lineage of Jimi Hendrix 's oeuvre to present-day rock. The way he snobbishly refuses to do any of the songs people want to hear. And if Mr Hendrix wants to do two separate versions of 'Machine Gun' spanning over 25 minutes, then he bloody well will. No matter that after the 17th time the uck-achucka 'guitar as...

Jimi Hendrix - Live At Woodstock: Wikipedia Album Entry
Live at Woodstock is a posthumous live album by Jimi Hendrix released on July 6, 1999. The album documents Hendrix's performance with his band Gypsy Sun and Rainbows at Woodstock Festival on August 18, 1969. Many of the tracks on this album were released in 1994 on Woodstock. Apart from the cover of "Gypsy Woman" (The Impressions) and "Mastermind", both of which were sung by rhythm guitarist Larry Lee, Live at Woodstock contains the full set played by the band.
The recording, sound mix and the 1999 remix were completed by Eddie Kramer, who has pointed out that the conditions were primitive; in view of that, the result has been acclaimed, though the radical editing results in the group sound being reduced to a three piece of Hendrix, Cox and Mitchell. Lee, as noted above, and the two percussionists are essentially edited out of the mix. The original recording of the complete performance can be heard on several bootleg releases and the full group is clearly audible, notably on "Jam Back At The House" (aka "Beginnings"), where the volume of the two percussionists and Lee's guitar are noticeably a part of the whole.
