Notes from the original uploader:

I grabbed this gem at a shop in New York City back in the mid 90’s with my best friend,
‘Rich G’. Tracks 1-6 were recorded live at the Cafe Au Go Go on March 17th 1968, 152
Bleeker Street, Greenwich Village, New York City. Track 7 was recorded live at The
Generation Club on April 15th 1968, 52 West 8th Street, New York City. The Cafe Au Go Go
show also included Paul Butterfield, Elvin Bishop, Harvey Brooks, Buddy Miles, Herbie
Rich, James Tatum, and Philip Wilson. The Generation Club also included B.B. King, Elvin
Bishop, Buzzy Feiten, Al Kooper, and Philip Wilson.

If you’re not familiar with this recording, it can best be described as a bunch of
structured ‘jams’. If you’re into lyrics, this one’s NOT for you!!! If you’re into great
instrumentals, particularly electric guitar, JUMP ON THIS!! The sound quality is very nice.
I’d rate the SQ as a solid EX, in my humble opinion. Crowd noise can be heard at times, but
it’s faint at most. There are also a few fade-in/fade-outs, but almost hardly worth mentioning.

This is definitely one of the better sounding live performances with Jimi Hendrix I’ve heard.

Lastly- I normally wouldn’t include a scan of the actual disc, but this one’s too cool looking
to omit. Hope you guys agree. Thanks again to ‘Alex D.’ for the artwork scans.
