Nice find Dan,
Showed Mitch doing what he did best. Truly one of the greats. And, I never knew Geddy Lee sat in on bass for the Experience... [see 2:19]. ;^)

DAN , CHECK OUT THE FOOTAGE FROM BEAT ! BEAT ! BEAT! , TOO , WHEN THE BAND WAS JUST STARING TO GET OVER IN EUROPE.....Mitchell played , much later , in Sky Saxon's band , Dragonslayers , and probably one or two other little bands he had....He's on Sky's version of "Don't Slander Me"...


Have you heard The Entrance Band yet?

Mitchell was an incredible drummer -- he'd unleash those crazy-long fills, daredevilishly syncopated, and the tension was exquisite -- will he hit the one? He (almost) always did.
BTW, I love the quick "I Feel Fine" quotation Hendrix throws in at about 2:00. I'm sure he was one of the many musicians who were ignited by the feedback at the beginning of that song.
