Here's another pearl from Dusty's live performances -- Mockingbird, a duet with Jimi Hendrix.



On YouTube, there's Jimi's complete performance -- Stone Free, Mockingbird (w/Dusty), and Voodoo Child. Audio only.

The bit of film clip that exists is thrilling.

And the question must be asked: who had the bigger hair?

:star: Jimi was fanatical about his hair.
It was real, not a wig, and so he was very defensive for his 'fro.
At a record show I attended one guy had a boot-leg DVD of Hendrix performances. It included Dusty, and Jimi.
With no way to preview the goods I passed it up. I couldn't believe an American in Cleveland could have the actual footage. :star:
Can you imagine being there for the live show ? :party:

What a thrilling collaborative effort between two music legends, and how incredible that audio exists in such surprisingly good quality considering the video archive was (unfathomably) wiped by the TV network. Further proof (as if we needed it) that Dusty was supremely versatile as a vocalist!

I know of the old clip from the documentary, but have we ever seen the whole performance before (even in this ratty condition)? My memory fails me. [:I] But I found this on youtube, so I'm posting it whether it's new or not.(Couldn't find it searching our forum.)

Thanks for posting! This is the most complete clip I've seen. The video appears to contain bits of both "Mockingbird" and the JHE solo performances. I wonder if the audio was sourced from an audio-only fan recording and played over the mixed video footage?

That video seems to have been taken down. I'm not sure if it's the same quality, but this appears to be a re-upload. It sounds much better than the short video clip of Dusty and Jimi. From the research that I've been doing, apparently there's a soundboard recording of this lasting about 13 minutes long. Can anyone confirm or deny? Or is it just misinformation? I'm going to keep digging to see if I can find it.

Thanks for posting the re-posting here!

YouTube audio files are compressed when converted into video format and so there is some degradation in audio quality compared the source file. It would be amazing to obtain the original separate audio-only file. Oh where would one begin to search for such a rarity?
