Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Move, The Pink Floyd, The Amen Corner and The Nice

14 November 1967

"Hail Jimi Hendrix, the personality, the contortionist, the wise-cracker, the exhibitionist. Hail Noel Redding, and Mitch Mitchell, his traumatic Experience. How they were needed to close the package which opened up at London's Albert Hall... The bill seemed as if it would never get off the ground. Thank goodness for Hendrix the untamed and the unchained swinging down from the trees through Knightsbridge and Kensington to set the masses on fire in an ectoplasm of sound.... Most of all it was Hendrix the showman, the king-size personality. And that was just what the rest of the group tour of first-timers lacked - personality.... A worthwile tour for Hendrix fans but lets hope the rest improve a little as it progresses."
(Nick Logan, New Musical Express, 18 November 1967)
"The Hendrix-Move tour thundered off on its trip round Britain with a deafening start...The Floyd gave one of their colourful and deafening displays of musical pyrotechnics, and indeed all the groups were painfully loud...The Eire Apparent practically damaged my hearing system for life; the Nice, my favourite group, blew their cool; the Amen Corner raved like a show band, and the Move thundered along in a shower of 'Flowers in the rain'. Jimi was great, and deserved the ovation, but really Mitch and Noel shouldn't make announcements. Sorry lads, but Jimi sounds better with the chat."
(Chris Welsh, Melody Maker, 25 November 1967)
David Gilmour was in the audience.
