Him and " Lash" LaRue rode off into the sunset with Elvis and some groupies.
I’m in , been a while since I had a good listen to Jimi.
One word: Search engine
i listened on the NPR preview... it's terrific and yet another reminder of what a loss the 50+ years of Jimi we didn't get are...
Search engine is two words.
Always listening to Jimi so looking forward to getting this one.
I like it, the last song has Jimi playing a sitar, nice way to finish off the trilogy I spose.. .
It's a testament to how great he was and how far his music was ahead of its time. He created so much amazing material during such a short period of time, which should be recognized. In my opinion his playing and creativity was still on an uptrend trend and set to breakout when he left us. I totally appreciate what Eddie Kramer has done to help produce these albums and I think it's sad that the "new" material is starting to run out. Apparently, there is still plenty of live stuff to release, so I could look forward to that. I might be old fashioned, but I don't want Jimi's material to be released on the Netflix model. I'm cool with the way they've been doing it.
Either there is an awful lot of Hendrix material in the can, or somebody is faking it big time.
Yes 6 feet from a come back.....
Oh hell yeah, Mb!
Of course, Bunny! You know this!
I'm quite happy that the album is good... Normally, after someone is no longer there and something new is released, it's less interesting and it's a way to make some post-mortem money. With this one, I'm under the impression that they found some takes that were lost all these times and were album worthy already when he was still there...

Well .. I'm getting old Best Hendrix album is still "Axis" btw.
There is another 12 albums of Jimi material in the vault.
They are planning on releasing an album or so every year.
Each release will have some unheard of songs, some alt-takes, some stronger cuts.
All the really strong cuts are being spread between the discs, so you have to buy them all....
Jimi has been pretty prolific these past few years...
I listened to this album twice this weekend, both times in the car by myself with the volume cranked and from beginning to end. I don't have the songs clearly differentiated in my mind yet, the downside of driving while listening. But I did find Georgia Blues, Power of Soul, and Things I Used to Do as standouts. This isn't some gimmick album, there is some meat in this psychedelic stew of Jimi goodness.
A bit too prolific for my taste and my ability to believe he recorded that much material in a couple year period.
What else did he have to do? Especially since some of the stuff is a mix of studio jams and alternate versions of songs, not that hard to believe. A lot of the stuff labeled "previously unreleased" isn't new material.
Better than I expected. Highlights for me were "Jungle", "Sending My Love to Linda" and that "Sweet Angel" instrumental.
Jimi practiced in the studio with band members. he recorded everything which is well documented. he was also a prefectionist which resulted in many takes of most of what he recorded. Jimi also had a habit of redoing a song if he wasn't happy with any part of it. unike today he didn't do much cut and paste. he recorded a basic track with the band and it had to be exactly what he wanted. often some of the tracks that were done seemed just fine to most of us but not Jimi. this is what is getting released now. one difference is that Eddie Kramer is taking sections of different takes and assembling them into a finished song. all Hendrix playing though so that is fine with me.
