This particular performance at The Fillmore East 12/31/1969 has never previously been fully released, even though it is a rare document of Jimi Hendrix’s Band Of Gypsys. Needless to say, the playing is top of the line from Hendrix and co., and the recording quality, newly mixed by Hendrix’s long-term recording engineer Eddie Kramer, is high-grade. CD / 2LP on Sony.

9/10 Jack Customer review, 6th October 2016
Do yourself a favour and use good headphones for the first listen. 'Machine Gun' is already one of my favourite Hendrix live albums...and I have heard them all. Unlike the other Fillmore releases, this is a complete set, in proper order, and therefore eclipses both the original 'Band of Gypsy's' and the newer 'Live at the Fillmore East' 2xCD compilation. This is essential Hendrix right here, at the peak of his playing and creativity, and perfectly recorded. This is a long, long, overdue classic.
