4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Surprises... September 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just got this...the two previously unreleased tracks on this cd are quite nice. i'm surprised that there's material of this quality left unreleased. "blue window" is an extended original blues with nice organ and horns, both of which were rare in Hendrix recordings. it's a long jam that vacillates between sounding impromptu and surprisingly well arranged...clearly everyone was listening very closely to each other and/or it's the final take of many attempts at this song. "Georgia Blues" features very fine traditional blues guitar by Hendrix and a strong vocal by Lonnie Youngblood...surprisingly it stems from 1969 and not from his years of session work prior to starting to sing lead himself.
overall this is a serious, deep, long and slow blues album with an informal feel...6 of the 10 tracks are seven minutes or longer, some of them well over ten minutes long. sound quality is excellent, although slightly rough on "blue window"...
highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars If you don't have the Box Set September 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you don't have the Box Set I would get this if only for 'Country Blues'. I thought the family had released all of the important recordings by the Master, but this is one someone denied us we now can study. I am very happy to hear these new versions of his standards. 'Georgia Blues' is a great workout with Lonnie Youngblood I didn't know existed. I could go on but seriously if you are a Hendrix fan, get this CD & be refreshed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Blues February 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Well I don't know if all Jimi Hendrix fans will appreciate this album, as its his blues stuff, but their is no denying Hendrix's blues talent and feel for that genre of music. After all, 1 third of Hendrix's music is blues oriented. He adored blues himself and had a great feel for it. The main highlight of his blues is that he so brilliantly incorporates remarkable guitar solos within his blues music. Also, this album doesn't carry the same songs as his other Blues album.

Best Songs:

Red House: His greatest blues hit. It has an extraordinary blues feel to it with a wonderful chorus. An all time classic in the field of blues.

Come on(Let the Good Times Roll): A classic cover from Hendrix, originally written by Earl King. Wonderful song.

Hear My Train a Comin': Quite possibly his second biggest blues hit, this epic song has several different versions to including an acoustic version. In this case, we get the classic original. One of my all time favourites in the Hendrix catalog.

Voodoo Chile: A superb 15 minute track, featuring god like guitar playing from Hendrix.

Midnight Lightning: Just Jimi and his guitar. What more could you ask for?

Overall, this album is very consistent featuring strong blues tracks throughout. It's quite obvious that Hendrix himself had a wonderful sense of blues, and I personally believe it was his blues music that meant the most to him. A fabulous album to own for any blues collector and I would think that most Jimi Hendrix fans would like it to. I am a huge fan of Jimi's popular metal music and I love this. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars WORTH BUYING! May 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I saw this recording and the first thing I noticed was Martin Scorsese's name above Jimi Hendrix' name. I don't know what came over me but I was intrigued and I snapped it up without a thought. Then on the way home I started thinking "What is Martin Scorsese doing? Capitalizing on Jimi Hendrix?" I thought "Even if he's a huge fan what can he (MS) possibly bring to a collection of tunes from a great axeman who left us long ago?" Buyer's remorse set in and it wasn't the purchase price, it was the premise. I'm usually disappointed and/or sorry when I buy compilation albums but that was not the case here. I don't care if either Experience Hendrix or Martin Scorsese had more control over the content and what order it was laid down, I think it's a great grouping of Hendrix playing the true blues in so many formats and situations as to be an example of both his range and versatility while also showcasing many interpretations of the blues.

The tracks are not ordered in some historical hierarchy following Jimi's growth or transition from one point to the next in his artistry, yet the order does not seem abstract either. For those who own several Hendrix recordings and see this album as redundancy, well that might be the case. Keep in mind those same folks would need to play several recordings to get this same mix of cuts; if they want to listen to it all at once they'll need to burn a custom CD for themselves. After all the pops and clicks from replaying vinyl LPs are faithfully reproduced onto their fresh new CD, they still won't have the two unreleased cuts to listen to.

The master recordings were dusted off and these tracks were laid down so that I for one, could have a unique Hendrix CD to blast over the JBL sound system in my late model old-man-sedan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yet another compilation September 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Experience Hendrix could have at least found some alternative takes or more un-released tracks to put on this CD.
We still have not got "Things I used to do" or "I got 5 Dollars in my pocket" two great Hendrix blues tracks known to be in the archives at Experience Hendrix.
The 2 tracks that are un-released however are are of some intrest and therefore if you are a fan then this CD is a must.
Let's see what is to come.....
