Jimi Hendrix, ‘Fire’ – Song Premiere
The album, which will be released on Nov. 5, features Hendrix’s headlining gig at the two-day festival from the Gulfstream Park racetrack in Hallandale, Fla., on May 18, 1968. The album includes classic songs like ‘Hey Joe,’ ‘Foxey Lady’ and ‘Purple Haze.’ The nine-song set includes two bonus performances. This is the first time any songs from the fest have been released.
The live version of ‘Fire’ is indeed a pretty flammable performance of the cut. Hendrix and the Experience tear through their song with a ferocity that mirrored their pure power at the time.
