Jimi Hendrix working out The Band of Gypsys at Baggy’s Rehearsal Studio in Soho New York, December 19, 1969, before their New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day shows at Fillmore East, by David Sygall.

(btw, Dagger Records released an “official bootleg” of recordings from the two nights JImi, Billy Cox, and Buddy Miles spent here, The Baggy’s Rehearsal Sessions – HIGHLY recommended. Look elsewhere for majestic polish. This is JImmy in the groove, finding his footing with his funkiest band. The overwhelming vibe here, though, even more than funk and groove, is joy. Truly beautiful in its own scruffy way, and almost overwhelming in its emotional purity.)
