Trying to lay claim to a definitive master of “Lover Man,” Hendrix returned to Electric Lady to try and revitalize the recordings, unfortunately, with little success on this evening. Although a rough mix would be prepared, it too would be quickly shelved. With “Lover Man” now on the shelf, Hendrix turned his attention back to overdubs for “Angel.”

Hendrix makes a return visit back to hometown of Seattle, Washington where he is met at the airport by a large gathering of friends and family. Over the next couple of days Jimi spends considerable time with members of his family. Although hampered by rain, The Experience’s performance at the outdoor Sicks’ Stadium featured “Fire,” “Message To Love,” “Lover Man,” “Machine Gun,” “Star Spangled Banner,” “Purple Haze,” “Hear My Train A Comin’,” “Midnight Lightning,” “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Hey Baby (New Rising Sun),” “Freedom,” “Red House,” and “Foxey Lady.” Tonight’s performance included support from Cat Mother & The All Night Newsboys and Rube Tuben & The Rhondonnas.
