Royal Albert Hall/London,England/February 24,1969

"Lover Man"
"Stone Free"
"Hear My Train A Comin'"
"I Don't Live Today"
"Red House"
"Foxy Lady"
"Sunshine of Your Love"
"Bleeding Heart"
"Little Wing"
"Voodoo Child (Slight Return)"
"Room Full of Mirrors"
"Purple Haze"
"Wild Thing"
"Star Spangled Banner"


Jimi begins "Lover Man" by accidentally singing the original lyrics. ("Rock me baby") The remainder of the song behaves as usual. An excellent 11+ minute "Stone Free" shows up next and can be found on the official "The Jimi Hendrix Concerts".

A very fine "Red House" is played before the crowd-pleasing "Foxy Lady". Later in the set is a real rarity in the form of Elmore James's "Bleeding Heart". This is the only known live version,and it can be found on "The Jimi Hendrix Concerts".

Later in the set are excellent versions of "Little Wing" and "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" which can be found on "In The West". A loose version of the first ever "Room Full of Mirrors" features Dave Mason on guitar,Chris Wood on flute and Rocky on percussion.

The JHE conclude this excellent show with "Purple Haze" and "Wild Thing" before Jimi smashes the amps. This highly recommended show is available on various sources as an excellent soundboard tape. A big chunk of the show is also available on video.
