Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Miles, Band of Gypsys

(I first came across this photo on the back cover of the 2002 release, Jimi Hendrix: The Baggy’s Rehearsal Sessions, a delightful official bootleg from Dagger Records, capturing 2 nights of warm-ups in December 1969 for the Band of Gypsys upcoming performances at Fillmore East. Light and loose, with Jimi tweaking arrangements and lyrics along the way, it’s an unguarded, unpolished insight into Jimi the performer, playing as much for his own pleasure as anything else. Highly recommended.)
