Check out a very comprehensive write up about one of the last gigs performed by the original Jimi Hendrix Experience here. Here is a small excerpt:

Jimi talked quite a bit to the audience between songs, including one extended rap where he told them "You people down here are witnessing some really beautiful times. Like, groovy times you'll be telling your children and their children's children about, man. This is, like, the epicenter of where it's happening, right here in California . I just wanted you to know that, even though I think you know it already. Does it ever rain here? Would you care if it did? I didn't think so."

This concert along with 3 other concerts, all spanning the 4 years of his professional music career, can be purchased at amazon new and used, click here if you don't own this fantastic 4 disc live box set!
