THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE
Lookin’ For Trouble [ATM 144, 1CD]

Live at Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto, Canada; May 3, 1969. Very good audience recording.

Rick B posted the following comment at forums.stevehoffman.tv:

I attended that concert when I was 17… This concert had faded in my memory and to hear it again is a very special experience (ha!). I remember being a little disappointed that Jimi didn’t play too many of his big tunes - I now realize that he was especially hot on guitar that night with several really great extended solos. He was in a bit of a down mood that night as he’d just been busted for alleged heroin possession in Toronto that day and he poured his emotions into his concert.

We got our show back in 2006. Thanks also to hpjohnse for keeping the show alive at The Traders’ Den.

From the release notes:
Some minor clicks here and there are touched up, while others couldn’t be fixed. A number of microphone hits have a little volume correction on to limit their impact. There’s also a lot of mic rustling (especially during the beginning of “Room Full Of Mirrors” (10)), but nothing could be done about theses. Furthermore there’s also what sounds like distortion in one channel beginning about halfway through the disc, but again this couldn’t be cleaned up. This is a mono source, but either during the original recording, or the transfer over to digital, there was a little phase offset introduced (possibly due to slightly out of alignment heads). Not a lot, just enough to give it a minor psuedo-stereo effect. The offset is very minor (only a few samples), and the left and right channels are practically the same, so this has also been left as is.

  2. This is a welcome addition to my vast Hendrix collection. Unfortunately the sound of this historic recording isn’t very good. Cheers Tony

  3. I have a very good friend who played in a band called The Lords of London back in the late 60`s.
    They were a bunch of kids at the time and they had a huge regional hit in Ontario called “cornflakes and Ice Cream ” and “time waits for no one “. [you can youtube them] They opened the show for Hendrix in toronto at the maple leaf gardens that night and my buddy told me he sat under the stage watching mitch mitchells foot LOL..after the show they all sat in the dressing room passing joints around and he says that they never got any further than jimi who would bogart the joint..My buddy took Mitch Mitchell home in the early hours of the morning and his mother actually got up and made pasta for them as they were both so hungry,crazy true story..

    Arcadia was the pop group formed by Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes and Roger Taylor of Duran duran…

    By sluggo on Apr 22, 2013

  23. Thanks for the Jimi post. Lucky enough to see him 3 times as a younger. If you get to Seattle, WA USA, don’t miss the Experience Music Museum. Their current exhibit on Mitch Mitchell is amazing. Picked up the original JHE single in mono on Record Store Day on Saturday. Also got ‘Songs For Slim’ benefit disc by The Replacements. I Love Record Store Day!
