Live in Ottawa is a posthumous live album by The Jimi Hendrix Experience, released on October 23, 2001 by Dagger Records. The album documents the band's second performance at the Capitol Theatre in Ottawa, Ontario on March 19, 1968.

Recently, it was announced by Dagger Records that three songs from the first show, which are sourced from a previously undiscovered tape, will be released on Live in Paris & Ottawa 1968.

The concert[edit]

The performances in Ottawa were part of the band's extensive American tour in support of Axis: Bold As Love. The band arrived to play two shows at the Capitol Theatre, for which Jimi varied the set lists. In the second show, an energetic run through of "Killing Floor" was played, as well as a long instrumental jam on "Tax Free", among regular live staples. The show was not professionally recorded, though Hendrix was aware of the fact that his performance was being set to tape, pointing it out to the audience at times.
