i'm a huge hendrix fan but, come on, how many times are they gonna repackage the same damn songs?
these are not 'unreleased recordings', just remastered again. and again. and again....
all about the $$$
Money grab or not, I like it. Might not spend big $ on it, but undeniably serious mojo from that man's fingertips. Thanks for posting this Ted.
I seldom buy brand new cd's (NZ$30-50 for fresh albums, sheesh!) but this time I fear I may have to buy this one over the counter. There is the usual re-re-re-mastering you'd expect from The Hendrix Machine, but at the end of the day, Jimi was a visionary guitar god who charted the way ahead for the rest of us. Anything released that isn't Greatest Hits has to be good.
I'm listening to it right now, and while I agree the tracks are NOT as new and unreleased as the hype would have us believe
it certainly sounds good to my old ears. Came packaged with a very nice magazine here in the UK which was a real bonus, you could say the most comprehensive sleeve liner notes ever ;o)
after a little googling managed to procure the album. it is indeed excellent quality with superb playing throughout.
but i wouldn't buy it - already got all the tracks on it many times over:)
It is really a nice set of songs for those who don't have it. Never was a Post experience fan and never thought much of most of the Drumming this album, but it shows a real transition and shows his dark side, at least the side of himself that lent itself to the traditional blues, and that, he was great at. I bought the album.
