Improv deadcats for Hendrix

There must be an interesting backstory to the heavy-duty windshields in use at this concert. For some of these songs the drum tracks were expertly re-recorded by Eddie Kramer a few months later, due to wind damage to the concert capture.

Here’s a little wider context background:

Love the windscreens but.... I think there might have been an issue with guitar leakage into the vocal mike there....

And what's with the "All Cameras Stopped" card? Didn't they have any random audience pickup shots from earlier in the day to use?

Oh, that is funny. Did they all run out of film at the same time? Or did the promotor, undoubtedly left holding the (empty) bag for the film crew say "shut 'er down boys. No money, no more movie makin'".

"Turn me up! I can't hear my guitar."

It’s almost as if the current Hendrix estate operatives simply released the project as it stalled in 1971, with no additional work or care devoted to it.

Today we have the ‘demixing/mic isolation’ algorithms that Peter Jackson employed on ‘Get Back’ to clean up spill…and creative use of panning across concert stills would have spared the awkward disappointment of the ‘all
cameras stalled’ hiatus.

However…maybe this version isn’t the 2020 official release, and these issues have indeed been addressed in that version ?
