Eight LP deluxe box set

Plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings!

Highlights from six 1968 concerts from San Francisco's historic venue that reshaped rock 'n' roll

Includes 36-page book and rare backstage interview with Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix's Woodstock performance may be his most famous, but the guitarist named by Rolling Stone as the best in history was never better than at a three-night stand in San Francisco, putting on a total of six concerts that fans have long clamored to hear again. Featuring the crème de la crème of said performances, now everyone finally gets their wish.

Winterland is drawn from six stellar shows in October 1968 at San Francisco's historic Winterland Ballroom. These special performances celebrated the two-year anniversary of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and came just as the groundbreaking album Electric Ladyland was released. Even given the era's rich history, you'll be hard-pressed to come up with any concert that rivals what's here.

As many already know, Winterland presents some of Hendrix's most spectacular guitar work. This scintillating set is filled with rare live versions of classic songs such as "Manic Depression," "Are You Experienced?," "Tax Free" and "Little Wing" that are not part of any other Sony Legacy releases. Fans will also enjoy Hendrix's dramatic interpretations of Cream's "Sunshine Of Your Love" and Howlin' Wolf's "Killing Floor" (with the Experience joined by Jefferson Airplane bassist Jack Casady) as well as his rendition of Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone," which many critics and fans regard as the ultimate interpretation.

Pressed on eight 180-gram LPs by Quality Record Pressings, this special deluxe box set features never-before-released music from each of the six unforgettable Winterland performances. Please note that Winterland is now markedly different from the flawed single disc compilation, long out of print, briefly issued by Rykodisc in 1987 and 1988. Moreover, Winterland also presents a rare interview with Hendrix recorded backstage at the Boston Garden a few weeks after the Winterland performances. This previously unreleased bonus provides fans with a unique window into Hendrix's views about his background, his approach to the guitar and songwriting and future direction of his music.
