    This live album by The Jimi Hendrix Experience is a compelling and beautiful tribute.

    All are already available on one of the many existing Hendrix live discs although as usual, the performances are substantially different since Hendrix seldom played anything the same way twice. ... One of the last recordings with the original threesome. Despite reported tensions within the group, they tear it up.

    Live at the L.A. Forum, April 26, 1969 is a superb reminder that most of that music is still vital, rewarding, and well worth hearing.

    There's no shortage of Hendrix live recordings out there, and while this isn't essential, it's very good recording of a fantastic performance. [Dec 2022, p.44]

    If not a classic tour de force, this pressure-cooker set remains an era-capturing document of the social turmoil and pressures Hendrix faced as the world's greatest rock guitarist. [Dec 2022, p.81]

    A take on the Star-Spangled Banner provides a waymarker here, but its playful cadence offers little warning of the unholy commotion to come.
