More Info:

Live At George’s Club 20 collects raw amateur live recordings of Jimi Hendrix performing with Curtis Knight, made in December 1965 and January 1966—just months before his discovery in Greenwich Village by Animals bassist Chas Chandler. These raucous blues and soul recordings represent the closest approximation of what Chandler heard when he first spotted Hendrix at the Café Wha?. Never before officially released in America, Jimi’s primal guitar, compelling voice and engaging persona are evident throughout spirited versions of classics by Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Ray Charles and others. This specially priced, two LP offering from Dagger Records, the official bootleg label created by Experience Hendrix, presents the original recordings restored by Eddie Kramer and free of various overdubs and excess manipulation present on earlier, unsanctioned releases.
