On this day in 1969, Jimi Hendrix and his new group, Band of Gypsys, performed for the first time in New York City. Here’s one of the finest moments to come from the classic live album Band of Gypsys, the 12-minute plus performance of the song “Machine Gun”. It’s a fun listen all the way through, with Hendrix’s amazing playing and the rapid-fire guitars and drums to match the song title. The group played two consecutive nights at Fillmore East, with “Machine Gun” being recorded on the second night.
