SF Declares Hendrix Day

The city of San Francisco has proclaimed September 13 to be Jimi Hendrix Winterland Day.  The date marks the release of a 4 CD compilation drawn from a series of six concerts the guitar icon performed at the Winterland Ballroom in the fall of 1968.  The concerts took place the same month that Hendrix released the ground-breaking double album Electric Ladyland.  The official document leads off by crediting the Seattle guitarist for '...musical innovation, which revolutionized traditional thinking about rock and roll'.  No argument here!
