Hendrix's rendition of the Star Spangled Banner was immortalized by BARRY Z LEVINE, by the Woodstock documentary film and by Woodstock albums. In those early morning hours Jimi jammed, not only with his band, but with the vibe of the Festival.
Only about 30,000 of the 450,000 were left by the time Jimi awed the peaceful, muddy, and weary fans with his spiritually-vibrant sounds early Monday morning. After weathering the rain, the mud, three days of non-stop music, the hikes to fresh water, food, and port-a-potties....they stayed to see Jimi close the Bethel festival. The crowd was at all times peaceful, bonded by a magical brotherly love. Jimi Hendrix amplified these feelings through his music to close the festival with creative genius. The Gypsy Sun and Rainbows band became a jamming experiment with people he trusted. Though transitory, the band brought Jimi to the freedom of expression that characterized his final thirteen months.
