I have never seen this pressed in another color but black. There is also a copy with the matrix number HEN 5000 C/D, which looks almost identical to the original:
Finally, a picture disc version was also released.
Source: Audience recording from Jimi’s last concert at Fehmarn Festival, Germany on 6 September 1970, 12 days before he passed away. Quite the attention-magnet and coup for such a small bootleg label, it must have been their biggest seller.
An alternate and complete source with improved source was acquired by Dagger Records, the home of official Hendrix bootleg recordings and released as The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At The Isle Of Fehmarn in 2005. The label gave the following background information about its source: “Unbeknownst to Hendrix, the promoters captured the group’s entire performance by feeding two overhead stage microphones into a consumer grade Revox reel-to-reel tape machine located off to the side of the stage. The resulting document, rough hewn and unmixed, is clear and not unlike the amateur audience recording featured on the initial Dagger offering Live At The Oakland Coliseum.”
It sounded like a great idea at the time, riding the coattails of the Woodstock movie and album, recreate the festival experience in Germany in an almost “weather-proof” location ‘Isle of Wight-style’ on an island. Three young guys with no prior experience got together and started organizing and bills were accumulated totaling 500,000 Marks while at the same time only 10,000 tickets at 28 Marks had been sold (in the end about 25,000 tickets were sold, falling well short of the expected 60,000 patrons).
Friday, September 4th came and it was pouring with rain. The first bands struggled through their sets on stage or had to abandon it (Renaissance, for example), while some did not appear (Cactus never traveled to the festival site). The next day was drier but cold and windy. MC Alexis Korner had the unfortunate task to inform the crowd that Procol Harum and Ten Years After would not appear. At least, Mungo Jerry, Canned Heat and Sly & The Family Stone did. Jimi arrived that day from playing the Berlin Super Concert 70 and it was decided to move his performance to Sunday.
Sunday started sunny and clear if cool and Jimi finally took the stage just before 1PM to some booing from the audience for the delay, to which he replied along the lines of: “I don’t care if you boo, as long as you do it in tune”.
Rain again during “Red House”:
