1st show
"Are You Experienced" contains significant surface noise on my copy. Technical issues aside,Virgil Gonzales shows up around the 6:04 mark for a flute interlude. Clocking in close to 16 minutes,this is probably the longest version of "AYE".

Before "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" Jimi asks people to sit down. The surface noise continues on this song.

By the time "Red House" begins,the surface noise has disappeared. This one is a good 11 minute version. "Star Spangled Banner" and "Purple Haze" wrap up this show.

2nd show
After a 3 minute tuning segment the JHE start with "Tax Free". This version can be heard on the official "Live at Winterland" release.

"Spanish Castle Magic" stretches out nicely to 10 minutes with an unusual slower segment.

Jimi brings out a "very heavy organ player" for the next few songs: Herbie Rich from the Buddy Miles Express. Herbie adds nice color to the sound of these songs.

The show wraps up with a version of "Purple Haze" without the spacey intro.
