The Floyd-in-Australia ’71 2CD (Sigma 284) is quite impressive & recommended, but the very sad part is how “Saucerful of Secrets”, like so many other versions of ASoS in 1971-72, ends prematurely (or has a breakdown/interruption in other cases, like the Sheffield 1970 show), after only approx. 5:45, but that’s how it also was on all previously released versions, so I wasn’t exactly expecting anything more or better. Disc 1 is approx. 55:49, & Disc 2 is approx. only 34:21, but still a very good release.
On an unrelated question, anybody know when The Jimi Hendrix Experience, while performing “Purple Haze” in early 1968, switched from a slow or medium guitar intro (just the first few seconds) to a faster one? I very much prefer the slower one rather than the faster one, which almost nearly ruins the whole song for me. Was it sometime after March ’68? Or was it actually in February ’68? Can anybody possibly even pinpoint the exact date of the particular show when the intro was sped up for the first time, or the date of the show when it was played at regular speed for the last time? Thanks.
