ON NOVEMBER 28TH , 1968 CREAM FILMED ITS
FAREWELL CONCERT AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL IN
LONDON.ON FEBRUARY 24TH , 1969 , THE EXPERIENCE
PLAYED ITS FINAL BRITISH GIG AT THE SAME VENUE TO
TRY TO UPSTAGE CREAM , KNOWING THAT CREAM WAS NO
LONGER A THREAT . HENDRIX EVEN TRIED TO BETTER
CREAM'S "SUNSHINE OF YOUR LOVE" DURING THE SET ,
FAILING MISERABLY IN THE PROCESS AND SHOWING THE
WORLD ONCE AND FOR ALL HOW INFERIOR HIS PLAYING
WAS COMPARED TO ERIC'S.
HOW FLAGRANT WAS THIS PLAGIARISM? THE
EXPERIENCE HAD THE AUDACITY TO FILM ITS ALBERT
HALL GIG TO RUSH RELEASE IT IN ORDER TO COMPETE
WITH CREAM'S "FAREWELL CONCERT" MOVIE. JIMI'S
FILM WAS TO BE CALLED "EXPERIEMCE" , BUT AFTER
ONE SHOWING AT BERKELY , THE REACTION WAS SO BAD
THAT NOBODY WOULD LINE UP TO DISTRIBUTE
IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
JIMI HENDRIX , MR. PEACE AND LOVE , SHOWED
EVERYONE WHAT HE WAS MADE OF . A CUTTHROAT CIRCUS
CLOWN WHO PLAYED RHYTHM GUITAR.
