Message of Love
Triangle PYCD 043

 7/70 Randall's Island show

While the performance isn't always inspired,
the sound quality is almost commercial-release quality! As far as the music
goes, the band definitely ain't together on this gig, and almost falls
apart in a couple of spots (in Fire, either Jimi flubs the lyrics or Mitch
misses the beat, which is unusual for Mitch). To make matters worse, radio
annoucements start coming through the PA system right after Stone Free! In
spite of all the technical problems (and the dipshit announcer at the end
of the show), this is a fine CD.
This is also the show where the audience gets ugly as Jimi begins Voodoo
Child. He dedicates the song to Devon, Collette and *Alan Douglas*, and
when the crowd starts booing, Jimi says "Fuck off, these are my friends".

  1.Stone Free
  2. Fire
  3. Message of Love
  4. Lover Man
  5. Foxy Lady
  6. Ezy Rider
  7. The Star Spangled Banner
  8. Purple Haze
  9. Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)
 10. Outro and stage announcements. 
QUALITY: A very good sounelboard. 
RECORDED: July 17th, 1970 at the New Pop Festival on Randalls island. 
COMMENTS: This is one of the most underrated shows Jimi every played. It was 
near the end and the stress Jimi was feeling showed but as I've stated 
before; His worst playing is other guitarist's best. It is one of the 
first shows I every got on a reel to reel tape, so I played it 
over and over again and despite the TV or radio leaking in thru the amps 
I love the show. Again, as is often the case, this CD is missing songs 
in this case Red House and All Along The Watchtower. Clocking in at 44:46 
this disk would have held the entire show easily. Live USA (Imtrat 
900 036) duplicates the Randall's Island tracks and includes two tracks 
from 04/26/69, the two disc set with the same name release number 
Imtrat 902 001 contains that disc and a second with one cut from 
03/15/68, four more from 04/26/69, one from 05/30/70, one from 
02/24/69, and two from 03/17/68.

11-12: July 1969 on the Dick Cavett show.
COMMENTS: A good show but one that Jimi stated he was unhappy with. The 
singing in particular is lackluster, one high point is the SF/AYE/SF 
medley that has excellent work and recovery by the entire band. Wizards 
Visions(World Productions Of Compact Music WPOCM 0789 D 026-2) contains 
just the Newport tracks and is the original release. 
A must have disk.
