Roberts Stadium/Evansville,IN/June 10,1970

"Spanish Castle Magic"
"Fire"
"Lover Man"
"Red House"
"Foxy Lady"
"Machine Gun" (incomplete?)
"Message to Love"
"Freedom"
"Hear My Train A Comin'"
"Star Spangled Banner"/"Purple Haze"
"Voodoo Child (Slight Return)"

time-62:50

"Hello Evansville. How you doin'?" says Jimi. From the first song,it is clear that this audience tape is a rough one. The sound is very bassy,boomy and overdriven.

On a more mellow tune like "Red House",the sound is slightly less abrasive. There is a significant amount of tune-up time between "Foxy Lady" and "Machine Gun".

The ending of "Message to Love" jumps directly into the intro to "Freedom". It's hard to tell whether Jimi did this or the tape was edited.

This show finishes up with "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)".

Again,this audience tape is terrible sounding. The Harlem 9-5-69 tape is the only one worse than this. But,if you're a big fan of Billy Cox,his bass guitar is very up front on this tape.
