Box of Rain

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Winterland (Deluxe Edition) 4CD (2011) [16-44]

Jimi Hendrix’s legendary 1968 shows at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco are celebrated in this 4-disc box set from Sony Music, simply entitled Winterland. The legendary guitarist performed six shows, over three days, (October 10, 11 and 12) with set lists that included his interpretations of other artists’ songs, along with with many of his own classic compositions, such as Little Wing, Hey Joe and Purple Haze.

This box set features never before released music from each of the six unforgettable Winterland performances. The new standard and deluxe editions of Winterland are markedly different from a single disc compilation, long out of print, that was briefly issued by Rykodisc in 1987 and 1988.

It also presents a rare interview with Hendrix recorded backstage at the Boston Garden a few weeks after the Winterland performances. This previously unreleased bonus provides fans with a unique window into Hendrix’s views about his background, his approach to the guitar and songwriting and future direction of his music. A relaxed Hendrix turns on the charm with some stunning live performances in this box set.
