The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At The Oakland Coliseum is a raw, two-track monophonic audience
recording of the Experience at the height of their creative powers. 

Spread over two discs, The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live In Oakland presents the group's April 27, 1969
concert at the Oakland Coliseum. The Experience's spirited Oakland performance was capped off with an
eighteen minute, extended jam of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)". Joining the group onstage for this final
number was Jefferson Airplane bassist [and Electric Ladyland contributor] Jack Casady. 

The concert was recorded by Ken Koga using a single microphone onto a portable Sony reel to reel deck.
The concert was not professionally recorded, so Ken's amatuer tapes represent the only known
documentation of this inspired performance. The monophonic sound is unobtrusive and clear, but far from
industry [as well as Jimi's own] standards. 

Fans of the Experience will recognize the set list, as songs such as "Fire", "Purple Haze", and "Spanish
Castle Magic" were staples of the 1969 US tour repertoire, but there are many intriguing elements marbled
throughout the eighty-five minute performance. Highlights include Jimi's spontaneous reworking of "Hey
Joe", complete with passages about the `soldiers in Vietnam'. Jimi's two blues workouts, "Red House" and
"Hear My Train A'Comin" are particularly strong, as is a raucous, extended rendition of "Foxey Lady". The
evening came to a close with a rousing finale, as Casady climbed onstage to join the group for "Voodoo
Child (Slight Return)".
