Synopsis by Dennis Proctor
In 1970, Jimi Hendrix performed at the Berkeley Memorial Day Concert. This critically acclaimed performance is considered to be one of the best of the legendary guitar player's career. The show was taped on May 30, 1970, at the Berkeley Community Center during the Cry of Love tour. The 55-minute release features Billy Cox on bass, and Mitch Mitchell on drums. The band performs a number of Hendrix classics, including "Johnny B. Good," "Hear My Train a Comin'," "Purple Haze," "I Don't Live Today," "Hey Baby (New Rising Son)," "Lover Man," and, of course, Jimi's rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner."
