Excellent recent interview of former Traffic, Dave Mason regarding Jimi: http://www.guitaraficionado.com/dave-ma ... ndrix.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


Yes, management did prevent them all from releasing recordings of all of them together....I hope more is released to the public soon of their sessions!

Anytime!

Dave Mason to me is quite fascinating.. Just unfortunate him and Winwood still cannot completely reconcile their differences.

Mason's guitar-work on "All Along the Watchtower" was among the highlights of the song....I hope whatever is in the archives is formally released sometime!

I think they have differences going back to the earliest days of Traffic.

Mason likes simpler, pop-type songs.

Yeah....Mason was definitely into pop-songs and was easily influenced by the Eastern sound as well.... Steve of course very progressive and into some folk and soul elements. But imagine again if they both coexisted w/Jimi? Lord!

I've been listening to the Fillmore East shows a lot lately, the Band Of Gypsys shows. Great stuff, very funky. Not a big fan of Buddy Miles on drums though, he was no Mitch Mitchell.

Speaking of Buddy Miles... ever see this wonderful performance of him, Jack Bruce, and Buddy Miles from 1969? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhMfS-vTEPA" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Just sublime!

I'm finishing up an article on the four shows Band Of Gypsys played at Fillmore East on New Years 1970. Two shows on New Years Eve, two shows on New Years Day. I'm aiming to have the article up on my site in the next week. If anyone's interested let me know and I can share the link here. :)

Took me a bit longer than expected but here is my article on the four shows the Band Of Gypsys played at Fillmore East to bring in the New Year in 1970. It includes first hand accounts from people who were there and fantastic photos.

I had a lot of fun writing this, I hope everyone has fun reading it! Let me know your thoughts!

Excellent write-up.... Thanks for posting it on here.... I read how Jimi was disappointed by it, but was obligated to release an album compromising of those four concerts. He was especially resentful of Buddy Miles (especially how he will constantly sing and speak so much nonsense). Oh well.... even Miles' sloppy drumming added something special to the mix.

It was a detailed write-up Tom.

The period of Hendrix's success (1966-70) was a short one. But it never ceases to fascinate me. Not just for Jimi, but for the whole emergence of a 'rock industry'.
