Fillmore East 1969/1970

Live at the Fillmore East, December 31, 1969; January 1, 1970. Very good soundboard.

Fans of Jimi Hendrix no doubt would own the Band Of Gypsys album and/or Live At The Fillmore East. These are the legendary recordings of the guitarist at Fillmore East on December 31, 1969 and January 1, 1970.

Backed by bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles, the Band Of Gypsys played four shows over those two days - two shows per day. However, the complete performances have never been officially released. At best, the official releases offered what would be considered the highlights of the shows and unless you were lucky enough to be there, listeners won’t get a feel of how the show progressed from beginning to end.

Fortunately for those who need that sense of completeness, the entire recordings have been circulating among collectors as a six-CD set.

Here then are all the unreleased tracks from the Fillmore concerts. As far as we can ascertain, these tracks have not been officially released on CD.

These tracks are no longer available for sharing.
Note: Thanks to reader Lee Cohn who checked and confirmed that the following two tracks, from January 1 (first show), have not been officially released:
Track 403. Changes
Track 408. Earth Blues
They can be downloaded below.

Note2: When the track, We Gotta Live Together (Fillmore East, January 1, 1970, second show), was first released on Band Of Gypsys, it was edited down to 5:46 mins. When it was subsequently released on the Live At The Fillmore East CD, it clocked 9:55 mins. Here is the unedited, complete track at 16:43 mins.
Track 602. We Gotta Live Together

  2. Jimi Hendrix concerts you can find on every corner of the WEB.99% are crap.There is more noise than music.Recorded in a distance of 100 yard from the stage.This recording is fine.A part of the 1% you can enjoy.On November 27th is his 66st birthday.What wouldhe do when he not died? When he would hear all this bullshit on radio.I remember the day he died 18th of September 1970.In this time I was a fucking soldier.I will never forget the day when I heard it on radie that jimi died.Every time when I was down Jimi´s music gave me power to make no suicide.Music is the best medicine we have.
    Thank you Jimi.Thank you guys for this concert.

  3. VERY NICE! Happy Birthday Jimi.

    “Let’s hope that this year is better than the last.” No more war!

    Thanks again Big O ‘Zine !!!

  4. When I read Joe “The Catman”’s posting it was like reading a mirror image of what I would say. Except I was a fucking sailor having just returned from that beautiful part of the world…Vietnam…amerikkka’a last big (?) fuckup.
    I have around fifty or so Hendrix bootlegs where most are pretty sad shape sound wise, but to me it’s a treasure having them never the less.
    He means a lot to me…in times of trouble I remember these words…”With the Power of Soul Anything is Possible…With the Power of You Anything You Want To Do.”
    I feel he never really died…he just went some place else to play his music.
    Peace out!

  5. Does anyone have a torrent link to the 6 CD Fillmore set? I did try looking but not much luck. Thanks

  6. I can find where everything has been previously officially released (BOG or Live at the Fillmore 2CD’s)but this one: “Earth Blues”, from the 1/1/70 first show. Can anyone tell me where this track was officially released?

  8. some mighty find Jimi, awesome quality. Jimi got me through the Nam and I say fly your freak flag high, my friends!

    By M.K. Ultra on Oct 17, 2008

  9. as some of the released songs are double (e.g.”Machine Gun” at 402 and 506, “Changes” at 105 & 502, “Power of Soul” 404 & 503, …) – can anyone post here on which album where each song was released officially?
    as far as I remember, on the “Band of Gypsys” album the exact origin of the recordings is not clear.

    For a quick reference as to the official releases by track try “Band of Gypsys” on Wikipedia (if your comfortable with the source). It provides track by track detail.

  11. 05/24/1969 San Diego Sports Arena!! Awesome. We were in. Ticket less fools square off w/ police outside. Small riot… Glass doors crashed and broken. Jimi plays on!!!!!

  12. Haven’t had a chance to listen to all of this bliss, but just want to thank you now. Machine Gun’s mad & Ezy Riser’s wild.

    By thewaymouth on Oct 23, 2008

  13. Hi, In the article “Band of Gypsys” on Wikipedia cited previously - It is stated about Track 602. We Gotta Live Together - “We Gotta Live Together” is heavily edited to fit on the album. Its original length is about twice that which can be heard on the album. A longer version can be heard on the 2-disc Live at the Fillmore East album; the full version has never been officially released. How about a download? :)

  14. My memories of this night are a bit hazy. Maybe it was the brownies. I do remember it was easily the loudest show I had ever heard inside of a building at that point. My college roomie’s mother got us the tickets and we stayed at their apartment. I don’t think I fully realized what I had seen and heard for twenty years. Even getting the first LP as a promo, all I remember thinking was that’s neat. Then the SECOND BOG LP was released as a promo and things started to get interesting as it reinvigorated m interest. All along you could rely onj the guitar mags doing yearly cover stories about Jimi. There were actually complaints from some people because he showed up so much. But it didn’t really blow me away until the early nineties when I was on college radio and played a lot of Jimi on an alternative station and began to see major GOOD reaction from the punks and Nirvana fans. Then the realization hit me that I had BEEN there and what significance these (this) show had. I’ve always picked up as much bootleg Jimi as I can and getting this WHOLE document has been a holy grail for me. Now with the double CD re-issue, my original 1983 or 4 German BOG CD and the 2 LPs and this, I’ve finally got it all…yes?….except for the complete We Gotta Live Together (which has always been my go to track to showoff JIMI’s guitar playing…that ending is SOOO over the top!…so what is thetory on that track?

    Thanks for the posting…REALLY …thanks

  15. i love messy jimi but sound quality for tracks 107-112, 204, 212, 302 really sucks (interpolated and gave up!)… 102+103 sound good, quiet vox. oh well

  16. Like Mark and a couple of others, I had Hendrix when the shit was flying all around me. But Unlike Mark I don’t think Nam is our last fuckup - ever hear of Iraq?

    Jimi is more than just the music. He is a part of a time when everything changed.

  17. hey guys I have never seen Jimi Hendrix live but i have been a big fan since i started collecting live music way back in the late 60s.At that time it was virtually impossible to get any good Jimi concerts as the sound was always very very bad.Thank God nowadays you guys have been putting out some fantastic shows.thanks a million and keep on giving the music a better time cheers Eddie Casey
