Guitar World is reporting that Paris/Ottawa Live, historic 'in concert' recordings from the Jimi Hendrix Experience, never before offered at retail, together with a unique and exclusive collection of Hendrix memorabilia, are bundled together in a special offering to be released August 11 from Dagger Records, the official 'bootleg' label created by Experience Hendrix through Geffen Records/UMe.
This limited edition “fan pack” will be offered exclusively through Amazon.com and celebrates the fan/collector commitment of Experience Hendrix’s Dagger Records label, the producer of these master recordings. Created 11 years ago to release primarily live and extemporaneous archival performances, Dagger’s mission is to sketch in the detail of the Hendrix legacy and augment the mainstream titles that Experience Hendrix offers though UMe. None of the 11 titles previously released by Dagger have ever been sold in stores and have been available only at jimihendrix.com. The participation of Amazon.com, where pre-orders are now below, continues the tradition of Dagger’s online-only presence.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience Live 1968 Paris/Ottawa features sterling live performances of such Hendrix classics as 'Purple Haze', 'The Wind Cries Mary' and 'Little Wing' recorded by RTE, the national French broadcasting company. The January 29, 1968 Paris concert was the band’s third foray to the fabled L‘Olympia Theater where they had debuted as an opening act for the French pop star Johnny Halliday’s two years earlier. The Ottawa performances were taped by Hendrix himself during the group’s appearance at the Capitol Theater on March 19th of that same year and include a Hendrixized version of The Beatles’ 'Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band'.
