JIMI HENDRIX
Hoepla [Tarantura TCDJH-3, 1CD]

Live at the Vitus Studio, Bussum, The Netherlands; November 10, 1967. Very good soundboard.

There are various versions of this show, including one from Watchtower and another from Rattlesnake. Here is one more.

Thanks to Backyard Tyrone for sharing the tracks at The Traders’ Den.

From univibes.com:

November 10, 1967: At 10 o’clock in the morning, Jimi, Mitch, Noel plus road manager Gerry Stickells departed by plane from London to Amsterdam. This was the second visit of the Jimi Hendrix Experience to Holland. Earlier in March 1967, the Experience did two numbers [mimed] for the TV program ‘Fanclub’ in Amsterdam. This time around the JHE were in Holland for a live TV show and a concert.

Immediately after arriving at “Schiphol Airport” near Amsterdam, the trio drove to the “Vitus Studio” for the recordings of the TV program ‘Hoepla.’ Peter Nieuwerf worked for Polydor and met the JHE at the airport. “The only thing I remember is that Jimi wasn’t very warmly dressed. And they didn’t have any instruments with them, maybe someone else took care of that. I picked them up and brought them to the studio. Thereafter, I didn’t see them again. Jimi didn’t say much. You could not really get close. But he was an extraordinarily kind and gentle being. Absolutely!”

In alternative circles the “Vitus Studio” [originally a church] was also known as “Studio Virus” or “Studio Citrus.” The JHE recorded “Foxy Lady” [L517], “Catfish Blues” [L516], a false-start of “Purple Haze” [Jimi: “One more time, I have to do it again, my guitar got out of tune. You don’t mind!”] plus two complete takes of “Purple Haze” [Jimi before the first complete take, “Okay here we go one more time…again, haha”]…

Presenter Rosalie Peters recalls, “It all went very cool… everything went ‘á l’improviste.’ That was also the intended atmosphere, to foster a certain absurdity.” One of the ‘Hoepla’ producers, Wim van der Linden, was also present at the recordings. “He gave a live performance, incredibly loud, but we told him to. We already had trouble with the technicians [during previous ‘Hoepla’ recordings] and this gave them even more reason to put us down. That nutty Gied Jaspers did the program direction for the first time. He was so nervous, for five minutes you saw a long-shot, seeing someone move at great distance. That then was Jimi. I even had a terrible fight with Gied in the control room. I said, “Goddamn it, if you don’t take a close-up right away, I’ll kick your ass.”

  5. hey bigo, if this recording ever turns up, post it! i have heard about it.

    69.08.00 • Jimi Hendrix with Sam Rivers [POSSIBLE Audience Recordings]
    August, 1969 / Woodstock, NY

    Jeff Evangelista, Jimi Hendrix researcher/archivist, correspondence 02.04.18 and 02.05.26:
    “Sam has mentioned in interviews that Alan Douglas set up a jam with him and Jimi at the Woodstock retreat house (Jimi’s rented house), and they had a play. Your session dates helped tremendously because I think I have narrowed the time-frame down to August 1969. From your notes, it looks like Sam was in Europe (Poland etc.) for most of the autumn of 1969. And he played in France with Cecil Taylor in late July. Jimi [was in] Morocco… July 30 through Aug, …and was at the retreat for most of August. Of course Woodstock was held Aug 18.

    …Anything that might rule out this time-frame? Do you know anything more about this supposed jam between the two musicians? …We do have quite a bit of tapes from this Woodstock rehearsal’ period, but nothing I can identify with Sam. Jimi was definitely experimenting with playing with Free Jazz’ers at this time though, as we can hear from the house tapes and tapes recorded at the Tinker Street Cinema with Earl Cross on trumpet.

    The Sam Rivers episode though is one mystery that needs to be solved. it would be wonderful to get a sense… about what they might have played together, personnel, …etc. If tapes existed…”

    it’s from my personal collection. i doubt you’ll find another, since the man has passed away.

  8. Thanks for the Dylan speech in written form … please see if you can find anywhere the speech on video or film … Now, that would be worth listening to over and over. Here’s hoping. Cheers.

  10. One of my favourite Hendrix boots! The version of Catfish Blues is outstanding. Thanks!
    The voice of presenter Rosalie Peters sounds very charming and innocent. Cheesy dutch language too.

  13. What, has Jimi Hendrix died?

    By swappers on Feb 19, 2015

  14. Swappers, Jimi is alive and well; he and Elvis are living with their pal Darth, who has lots of photographs and recordings of them jamming together.
    I bet Elvis looks great in his grass skirt with his ukelele, laying down some great rhythm while Jimi does his stuff with his Stylophone.
    OK, now it’s time for the infinite number of monkeys to tap and gibber away with a six-paragraph response…..
