Supported by the Mothers of Invention, Arthur Brown, Blue Cheer and John Lee Hooker, The Experience perform two shows at the Miami Pop Festival in Hallendale, Florida. Among the songs performed during the second show include “Foxey Lady,” “Fire,” “Hear My Train A Comin’,” and “Purple Haze.” Eddie Kramer was flown down to Miami to record the group’s performance for posterity. Although recordings were made, the second day’s cancellation threw the promoters into bankruptcy. Both audio and film footage (ABC-TV) of the event was seized, their whereabouts remain a mystery.
