The major retailers in Sydney list the release date for this as the 29th of January, 2021! They have been consistently hopeless of late. The Lennon thing was about a month late

Unfortunately Australia misses most of these releases now, especially box sets etc...... however we are now beginning to be screwed on artists that would always be available on day 1 such as Jimi Hendrix.

The new Neil Young box set comes to mind:mad:

This is nothing but disappointing.

The soundboard mix with the original drum performance is nowhere to be found on this release. It's only the overdubbed version. The live elements are subdued (from cleaning them of original drum bleed I imagine). Following that, there isn't even any audience elements put into the rears in this 'stereo mix with ambient extension in surround format'. There's just generated reverb in back. As such the 5.1 mix is actually degraded sound vs the stereo mix. The stereo mix is more immersive than this botched 'stereo with reverb in back' mix.

I hit stop in the first track (which is actually the 3rd track - the first two aren't included here) and put on the bootleg video. The one with the weird stuff - Star Trek images and what not - during the moments where there's no video.

Something could have been put together from all the existing elements and really turned this into something. This is a lazy bs release if there ever was one!

Can anyone recommend a 'best' copy of the soundboard recordings available nowadays?
That video boot is the best copy I have. It's incomplete too. The "official" releases were from that batch of releases before the family took over. They are more complete but that video boot has better fidelity. Those pre family taking over releases were a little bootleggy - hence not being please with that and taking over. But then we get this release?!

And were there ever audience recordings of any of this?

Between just the soundboard and the vocal mics from the partial multitrack, so much could have been done! This is sad.

Check out the full film MOVIE version on DVD...maybe that might sound better to your ears:)

There were audience recordings of the shows. I have an old orange vinyl that had the Hey Baby intro that wasn’t on the soundboards but had some wanker talking over the top. I haven’t checked these for a while but way back most of the best sources were put together by a group of dedicated Hendrix fans. I’ll look for the document that lists all this

If anyone is a fan of Jane's Addiction / Porno for pyros / Perry Farrell here is a cover (from Woodstock 94) of (Hey Baby) New Rising Sun, the 2nd song from the First Show on this Maui disc.

Steven Perkins said he wanted to play it there as a nod to Jimi at Woodstock.

This song was never commercially released by Jimi or Perry
