    1970-09-16 Burdon/War/Hendrix - Complete!!!!

    Here's something I suspect many of us thought we'd never see (... or hear).

    This is the complete existing recording of Eric Burdon & War's concert at Ronnie Scott's Club in London september 16th, 1970.

    The Show consisted of 2 sets. The taper however unfortunately only had a C-90 cassette, so he flipped the cassette over, and recorded the last part of the concert over the first, thereby forever losing the start of the recording.

    Although lossy, as it's sourced from a wma-transfer of the master tape, this version of the recording is still vastly superior to other currently circulating versions. It's also considerably longer, and includes notably more music. The Old version clocked in at a little under 42 minutes. Here's that - plus an additional 50+ minutes (!). As for the 2 tracks that feature Hendrix, "Blues For Memphis Slim" (incl."Mother Earth") is now 8 minutes longer than before, and "Tobacco Road" is more than 9 minutes longer. Apart from a few (presumably) minor cuts, this recording features Hendrix's last public performance in it entirety. Untill a lossless version of the master tape becomes available, this will stand as the definitive document of that event.

    ERIC BURDON & WAR featuring JIMI HENDRIX
    RONNIE SCOTT'S CLUB, LONDON 1970-09-16

    DISC 1 - 1st Set
    1 Gun - 3:01
    2 Paint It Black medley - 15:30
    3 Spill The Wine - 8:22
    4 Mystery Train - 6:13

    DISC 2 - 2nd Set
    1 Gun - 7:40
    2 Paint It Black medley - 15:37
    3 Blues For Memphis Slim (incl.Mother Earth) * - 20:31
    4 Tobacco Road * - 15:37

    * featuring Jimi Hendrix

    Audience recording
    Master Cassette > wma > wav > flac
    Digitally restored

    And just to avoid any confusion: The reason for why this wma-sourced recording is being uploaded, is that it's the only version available. This is as good as it gets, and in light of the historic importance of this recording - and the major upgrade it represents - I think a little "bending of the rules" is in order. (Hopefully ....)

    As always: Thanks to the taper, who has given his permission to let this recording be shared, and thanks to those involved in making the most out of it.

    This is a major upgrade without all of the fade outs from the supposedly recorded tape by Howard Scott from War.

    Thank you very much for posting this !!!

    Can I ask a question? It would seem that you know or are in touch with the taper. Is it possable to get a new transfer? Without the .wma in the lineage?

    Thanks for all you've done, and for this show.

    WMA is not so bad.
    I think the WAV transfer wouldn't be significant upgrade.
    This already sounds excellent having in mind the period when
    it was recorded.
    Also, this is transferred from the master, and not transfer
    of the transfer of the etc... so I'd say the quality of the
    original must be very well preserved.
    Even if done in MP3, directly from the master,
    the results would be pretty good.

    Wow! this is incredible, Thank you very much. Who would have thought that in 2008 we would still get to hear brand new Jimi. I feel like I just won the lottery.

    As there's 2 guitar players on this recording, some of you may ask on which parts Hendrix plays? On "Mother Earth", Jimi take the first guitar solo (then responding to Eric Burdonís Play the blues!). A great blues solo IMHO. He plays lead on three 12 bars cycles, then let Howard Scott play lead Ė but he plays then some very interesting fills on rhythm guitar, even joining Howard Scott on the last cycle of his solo.
    After Charles Millerís saxophone solo, itís Jimi who plays the lead licks.

    On "Tobacco Road", Jimiís solo is very interesting: heís playing with a larger band than his groups, with the exception of the Gypsy Sun & Rainbows Ė which never worked as Jimi wished. The audio quality of the tape is really important: Jimiís solo is much better that what I thought. Inspired, with licks that reminds me of his solo on the Stephen Stills LP, and even on the BBC version of "Driving South"! Till the end, itís Jimi who plays lead on this one.

    IMHO, this recording would have made a GREAT Dagger Records Ė so thanks again everybody for sharing this jam, which is so emotional for Hendrix collectorsÖ

    Yeah, there's lots of "chordal" soloing on Tobacco Road, just as on the Stills track, something he did increasingly in 1970. There's some on Pali Gap too, amazing... Howard Scott is a great player, too.
