Jimi Hendrix: Experience

uncredited writer, The Great Speckled Bird, 30 August 1968

THERE IS A concert — a rock concert with several serious new music groups, and advertising that promoted only the top 40 dribble that some of the groups produce: WQXI control prevails. Five groups play the afternoon show — the Heir Apparent introduce the show; the Soft Machine do a long and powerful riff with drummer stealing the show; the Amboy Dukes really get into it and steal the entire concert; Vanilla Fudge come on as showmen and do some fine music and gain support of many critics; The Jimi Hendrix Experience leaves most of the audience cold, the audience leaves Hendrix cold, he finishes the show.
