 "Pride of place on this second edition arguably goes to the Gun, with three astonishing performances that were recorded nearly a year before 'Race With The Devil' which illustrate their late '67 menu of mod and psych pop, with cracking versions of Rupert's People's 'Hold On', Paul Simon's 'A Most Peculiar Man' and a quite splendid airing of their legendary 'Light On The Wall'!"

30/12/2006 After some investigation about Hendrix performing "Race With The Devil" at the IOW in 1970 which was found here I have found evidence that Jimi was including the song in the set list's around that time as is evident from track listings for two gigs either side of the IOW gig one being the 2nd show at  Haleakala Crater, Rainbow Bridge, Near Seabury Hall, Island Of Maui , Hawaii, U.S.A. on the 30 July 1970. and the other being  Stora Scenen, Grona lund, Tivoli Garden, Stockholm, Sweden on the 31 August 1970. This information was taken from the discography section here
