    Just listening to some of the preview tracks on iTunes, some nice stuff I’ve never heard before and some other stuff that I might have heard before ( hear my train a comin, lover boy ) on Valleys of Neptune.

    Anyone purchased and listened to the whole thing yet ?

    Interested in hearing this, but wore myself out on Hendrix a long time ago. Not sure if I would buy it. I would have to be blown away.

    Listening to it now. I’ve always loved “Things That I Used To Do” and to hear Jimi doing it is a real treat. Doug Sahm’s version has always been my favorite and this one couldn’t be more different, and it’s awesome. Jimi’s Better 40 years in the grave than most of us’ll ever be in life...

    He saw both sides of the sky; this world and others as well, so it doesn't seem weird to me to
    think and talk about that kind of stuff in this context . Every once in a while I hear music in
    dreams that is beyond what's possible in this world, and out of those times, every once in a
    while it's Jimi. I feel pretty comfortable in saying that Jimi in the spirit worlds is going to be
    pretty monkeyfeeling gosh darn rascally rabbits a whole lot of fun :thumb:

    I just ordered it, thanks for the heads up.

    I had already listened to the preview tracks when the news was posted on NPR.
    I probably would have got it unheard anyway ...

    There's some amazing songs on this, I've been listening to it all day.

    'Power of Soul' is the bomb.

    Funny. When I posted that it was coming out a while ago there was fierce hate for the idea of a new Hendrix album. Not what I am hearing from what has been posted here though. I will pick it up at some point soon.

    Check out Band of Gypsies, if you haven't already . Killer live version there.

    bought it on the way to work but have already heard whole album. good stuff if you are a Hendrix fan. not the kind of album for newbies or casual listeners though. pretty sure that the version of Hear My Train A Comin was recorded with a Gibson as the tone really doesn't sound like a strat to me. given the time it was recorded i'm thinking perhaps he used his SG Custom. Stepping Stone and Power of Soul are both outstanding. Give My Love To Linda seems like a song with great potential and it's a shame that Jimi didn't do a more fleshed out version as i'd love to hear one. personally i'm glad to have the material in such good sound quality instead of the old bootlegs where this stuff used to reside.

    guessing the well has run dry on worthwhile material studio wise but that's ok. looks like a couple more live recordings could be coming next. again as a long time fan and collector i'll take what i can get especially with the sound quality that the recent releases have had.
