I borrowed this from library. It was missing the liner notes so I am unsure of the dates, etc. Certainly some inspired playing. However, the sound quality is only OK. 

The third rendition of "Hey Joe" is great, the other two follow the format of the studio rendition, while this one is more spontaneous.

Jimi Hendrix - Band of Gypsys (Live at the Fillmore East) (1970) DVD
From the Back Cover
Nearly three decades after his untimely death in September 1970, Jimi Hendrix's legendary performances with the Band Of Gypsys remain one of his most impressive achievements. The revolutionary impact Jimi Hendrix, Billy Cox, and Buddy Miles had upon the boundaries and definitions of rock, R&B, and funk can be traced to four concerts over the course of two evenings. The story of this ground breaking music is told her in interviews with Jimi, and for the first time, all four of his band mates, Mitch Mitchell, Noel Redding, Billy Cox, and Buddy Miles. Among those also contributing are Lenny Kravits, Vernon Reid, Slash, and original engineer Eddie Kramer. 

Jimi Hendrix: Live At The Fillmore East features the only known color and black and white rare footage of the group in concert, including "Machine Gun," "Who Knows," "Izabella," "Fire," "Foxey Lady," and a musical soundtrack which exclusively includes additional performances form the guitarist's December 31, 1969, and January 1, 1970, concerts which have not been included as part of Band Of Gypsys or Jimi Hendrix: Live At The Fillmore East. Complete with new interviews and rare archival footage, this Jimi Hendrix: Live At The Fillmore East special edition DVD features additional material never broadcast on television or home video. In addition to the full-length documentary, fans can hear unreleased music, see Fillmore East concert footage without interruption, and view rare photographs from one of the greatest rock concerts of all time. This acclaimed DVD program provides new insights into some of the most exciting and influential music this celebrated guitarist ever created.

Blue Wild Angel: Jimi Hendrix Live at the Isle of Wight documents the guitarist's legendary performance before 600,000 people at this massive outdoor music and arts festival in August 1970. This unforgettable concert experience draws heavily upon Academy Award-winning director Murray Lerner's vast archive of previously unseen performance footage and presents some of Hendrix's finest ever concert performances, including extended takes of "Machine Gun," "Red House," and other favorites such as "All Along the Watchtower," "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)," and a unique medley of "God Save the Queen" and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." New interviews with Jimi Hendrix Experience band members Mitch Mitchell, Billy Cox, and others set the stage for the concert footage that follows. In addition to providing the definitive look at tone of the landmark events in Hendrix's storied career, Blue Wild Angel features both a stereo and 5.1 audio surround soundtrack newly mixed by Hendrix's original recording engineer Eddie Kramer.

Songs: God Save the Queen, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Spanish Castle Magic, All Along the Watchtower, Machine Gun, Lover Man, Freedom, Red House, Dolly Dagger, Foxey Lady, Message to Love, Ezy Ryder, Purple Haze, Voodoo Child (Slight Return), In from the Storm.

Audio CD

The entire second set is played with the expected brilliance that one expects from  Hendrix. Since the performance is a concert rather than excerpts from different shows it has a nice flow. Two extended tracks, "Machine Gun," and "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)."

The sound quality does not bounce with fidelity, though you can hear each of the instruments clearly.

1. Introduction   
2. Pass It On (Straight Ahead)   
3. Hey Baby (New Rising Sun)   
4. Lover Man
