The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Freedom: Atlanta Pop Festival

Album Review

Hendrix tears it up at the ‘Southern Woodstock’

This incendiary set – recorded at the second Atlanta International Pop Festival on July 4, 1970 – captures Hendrix playing to 400,000 people in a field near the small town of Byron, Georgia. Though billed as The Jimi Hendrix Experience, it was Band Of Gypsys’ bassist Billy Cox, rather than Noel Redding, who took to the stage after midnight alongside Hendrix and drummer Mitch Mitchell.
