AllMusic Review by

Only the most devout Hendrix fan need pick up NYC '68, a bootleg-quality recording of a jam session cut at New York's Scene Club in the company of guitarist Johnny Winter, drummer Buddy Miles, and others. Offering loose, boozy performances of Hendrix perennials like "Red House," as well as covers of then-current favorites like Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" and the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows," it sheds absolutely no new light on the guitarist's enduring legend; the appearance of a horribly drunken, obscenity-spewing Jim Morrison only makes the experience that much more unpleasant.
