Maui Wowee 1970 - Bob Terry Tapes [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Rainbow Bridge Vibratory Color/Sound Experiment, Haleakala Volcano Crater, Maui, HI; July 30, 1970. Bob Terry Hi-Fi VHS soundboard source and Bob Terry Denon HD6/100 soundboard source patched with audience master tape. A good to very good recording with a bit of hiss.
The Rainbow Bridge concert was the penultimate performance by Hendrix in the United States, his last was two days later on August 1, 1970, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Hendrix died less than two months later on September 18, 1970 in London, England. - wikipedia
Fans might be familiar with Jimi Hendrix’s 1970 Rainbow Bridge concert through the Rainbow Bridge movie (1972) and the subsequent Rainbow Bridge soundtrack (on vinyl but has never been released on CD).
Music collector Philip Cohen points out: “While the Rainbow Bridge film contains 25 minutes of Maui concert footage, the so-called “soundtrack”, the Rainbow Bridge LP (released by Reprise Records), contains no actual Maui recordings. The one concert track on that LP is from Berkeley.”
The wikipedia also notes that the music from the Rainbow Bridge concert was distributed as a bootleg recording for three decades, before Radioactive Records released this same bootleg recording on the 2003 album, The Rainbow Bridge Concert: The Early Show, until it was withdrawn due to a court action by ‘Experience Hendrix’ which makes this officially a bootleg CD release.
In 2000, the four-CD Jimi Hendrix Experience boxset featured Hey Baby and In from the Storm, making these the only tracks from Maui 1970 currently to be officially released.
This Bob Terry matrix set, featuring both first and second shows, surfaced at the crosstowntorrents site in the middle of November 2011. Thanks to Hawkfan369 for sharing the tracks. Hawkfan369 also noted: “Thanks to MP and zombywoof57 for the tapes. Thanks To Karsten for his work patching it all together.” Serious Hendrix fans might already own a copy of Bridge To Haleakala [aka “The Maui Concerts”] (ATM 018-019/03.05.1999/2CDR).
