Johnny B. Goode is a posthumous
live album by
Jimi Hendrix released in June 1986. It contains three songs from Hendrix's performance at the
1970 Atlanta International Pop Festival on July 4, 1970, and two songs from
Berkeley Community Theatre on May 30, 1970.
Marketed as a "mini LP" soundtrack, it was released at the same time as a
video album with the same title, but with more performances from Atlanta Pop.
 More complete performances from both concerts were released on
Live at Berkeley (2003) and
Freedom: Atlanta Pop Festival (2015) (see
Jimi Hendrix videography for more information about video releases).
The Village Voice,
Robert Christgau gave Johnny B. Goode an "A−" and called it "vivid testimony to the uses of digital mastering for archival music", finding the sound particularly "powerful" on side one. He highlighted the "intense" rendition of "
All Along the Watchtower" and "
Johnny B. Goode", writing that Hendrix's performance of the latter song is "the definitive version of the definitive guitar anthem".
 Paul Evans gave it three-and-a-half stars in
The Rolling Stone Album Guide (1992).
