Ellis Auditorium Amphitheatre/Memphis,TN/April 18,1969

"I Don't Live Today"
"Hear My Train A Comin'"
"Sunshine of Your Love" (incomplete)
"Stone Free" (incomplete)
"Foxy Lady"
"Star Spangled Banner"(very beginning cut)/"Purple Haze"
"Voodoo Child (Slight Return)"


After an introduction by an MC,the JHE blasts into "Fire". Around the 6:00 mark of "I Don't Live Today" Jimi (unusually) starts some chunky,rhythmic guitar for a bit of a slowdown section.

"Hear My Train A Comin'" contains some hard-hitting soloing.

Toward the end of "Sunshine of Your Love" the tape cuts out and back into "Stone Free" already in progress. Less than 3 minutes of "Stone Free" remains.

A wah-wah drenched "Star Spangled Banner" leads into a crowd-pleasing "Purple Haze". At the conclusion of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" the MC returns to announce the band.

This is a below average 1969 audience recording. The drums are almost inaudible for the most part.
