The Jimi Hendrix Experience - The Complete Winterland Reels, Collector's Limited Edition, 6CD Box [SBD][FLAC]




Winterland Arena, San Francisco, October 10, 1968 (complete 1st & 2nd show), October 11, 1968 (complete 1st show & 2nd show) and October 12, 1968 (complete 1st & 2nd show).


Stereo Soundboard Digitally Restored

(except October 11, tracks 5-7, 1st gen audience recording).

This is an upgrade of ATM 011-016 "Three Nights of Winter", which was used for the "official" release "3 Nights At Winterland". The sound of this compared to the 2nd Gen used for ATM 011-016 is somewhat different. This version has more bass and it's also "dryer" in sound (less reverb) than the 2nd Gen version. An earlier flawed version of this Set is also in circulation. That Set, sometimes also known as "Winterland Raw Source" and "A Raw Winter", suffers from index clicks, DAT clicks and buzzes all throughout, and was "leaked" to the general public by a mistake.
The Clean version (this) has 9 tracks on Disc 4 (11.10.68/2nd Show), while the flawed version only has 8 (same amount of music, just one less index mark).The more than six hours of live music assembled here gives Hendrix fans the first opportunity to compare The Experience’s live performances. 2-performances per night for 3-days recorded during the band’s temporary residence at San Francisco’s Winter-land arena. Given that these recordings have been assembled from a variety of different sources, the sound quality, with exception of the last 3 tracks on Disc 3, which, as the soundboard tape had mysteriously stopped running, have been taken from a less-than perfect audience recording is excellent, and as usual, Jimi’s virtuoso delivery is as varied and unpredictable as ever, as are the technical problems which were invariably the sub-text of the majority of Hendrix concerts.

Extraordinary Archives Traded Material series of the highest quality Hendrix recordings available in traders' circuits. All recordings in the ATM series are taken from the lowest generation masters available, and they have all been digitally restored unless otherwise indicated.
