Originally set to hit the stage at 3am, Hendrix, along with drummer Mitch Mitchell, bassist Buddy Miles, rhythm guitarist Larry Lee and two percussionists (Juma Sultan and Jerey Velez), didn't start start performing until 8am.
Remembers Eddie Kramer, "Even though Jimi had trouble with some of the musicians not being able to keep up with him, he was able to still deliver a masterful rendition of The Star Spangled Banner, which became the de facto theme song for the revolutionary 1970s.
"During Jimi's legendary performance at Woodstock, I was in the truck behind the stage recording the show and everything was running smoothly, so I asked the assistant engineer to watch the levels while I raced up to the side of the stage and grabbed shots of Jimi. Then I ran back to the truck and continued to record the rest of the show."
