[ * ] indicates a cut in the tape. These are not yet listed for every tape
[ / ] indicates that songs run into each other without a pause in between

Personelle: all recordings feature the Jimi Hendrix Experience (Jimi Hendrix - vocals & guitar, Noel Redding - bass & vocals, Mitch Mitchell - drums) unless otherwise noted.

QUALITY : I use the Jimpress grading system.
(E+) Excellent+, cd quality
(E) Excellent, top quality analogue source
(VG+) Very good +, vinyl, very slight noise / distortion
(VG) Very good, generally good but not professional quality
(G+) All instruments audible, some distortion
(G) Good, all instruments audible with excessive hiss, compressed sound or distortion
(R) Reasonable, fair instrument balance, but sound quality below avarage
(F) Fair, poor balance, at least one instrument inaudible, bad distortion
(P) Poor, only main instrument clearly audible (e.g. guitar or vocals), very distorted with bad hall ambience
(A) Abysmal, virtually inaudible

This list only includes clean discs, as far as I know any noises / drop-outs / cuts exist on the masters
or on all copies circulating, unless otherwise noted.

LAST UPDATE: 4 may 2019 - webmaster@earlyhendrix.com ------------------------






Flamingo, London, UK
Saturday 4 February 1967

1 Killing floor (start cut, fades in)
2 Mercy, mercy
3 Can you see me
4 Like a rolling stone
5 Rock me baby (drop-out at 0.39 on the left fixed, hiss spike. Cut patched from c. 3.05 onwards)
6 Catfish blues (patch ends at 0.09)
7 Stone free
8 Hey Joe (drop-out at 2.24 fixed but still partially audible)
9 Wild thing (cut spliced together at 6.40)

Rumoured to have been recorded by John Mayall. If the rumour is correct then the master was probably destroyed in a fire at Mayall's home along with other 60s recordings that he had.
Composite of two different lineage copies of the tape, phase & pitch corrected (by +5%). A raw low gen copy was used as the main source. A cut before Catfish Blues was patched from a heavily eq'd 2nd gen copy, the eq was reversed but since the 2nd gen tape was digital mono there is a change in the hiss (from stereo to mono) in the patched section. Some clicks not on the master were removed and drop-outs fixed (as well as possible) at 0.39 in Rock Me Baby & 2.24 in Hey Joe. The original notes for the composite list a drop-out at 6.40 in Wild Thing but this has actually turned out to be a cut spliced together on the source used. The two drop-outs were not on the original master as they are in stereo which is why it was possible to improve them by patching one channel with the other. Ultimately this composite is a compromise for the time being, somewhere there must be a straight low gen transfer of the complete uncut mono master or perhaps the master itself will pop up one day.

Lineage: Master (reel?) > ? > cdr > cdr > wav
Raw low gen source.
The MC's speech after Wild Thing is complete, this is the only copy that has it.
The cut before Catfish Blues takes place before Jimi mentions Muddy Waters, several seconds are missing. Phase & pitch corrected (by +5%) in May 2008.

Lineage: Master (reel?) > 2nd gen
Heavily eq'd digital mono 2nd gen version.
This copy was used to patch the cut before Catfish Blues.
The MC's speech after Wild thing is missing.
The cut before Catfish Blues takes place after Jimi mentions Muddy Waters. There's a short repeat section on the tape at this point so there's actually no audio lost.

Lineage: 31min, E, Broadcast, Master > 2nd > MD > CDR
This tape is better quality than the official "Stages" cd (which was sourced from a bootleg) but with cuts between songs. "Stages" has a different running order and no cuts but it sounds like the tape used actually had cuts and they were masked by crossfading. The correct running order as far as I can tell should be as follows (note that I'm guessing here as an uncut complete tape doesn't seem to circulate):

Sgt Pepper's lonely hearts club band
The wind cries Mary
Foxy lady
Fire
Hey Joe
I Don't live today
Burning of the midnight lamp
Purple haze

Lineage: 18min, G, Audience, Master > ?
Circulated on YouTube 24 september 2013. A little snippet of another song near the end of "Wild Thing" has been labeled as "Red House", it may be "Red House" but it doesn't sound like Hendrix, more likely a leftover of previous recording or an accidental tape over of an unknown band?
