Biography

Widely recognized as one of the most creative and influential musicians of the 20th century, Jimi Hendrix pioneered the explosive possibilities of the electric guitar. Hendrix's innovative style of combining fuzz, feedback and controlled distortion created a new musical form. Because he was unable to read or write music, it is nothing short of remarkable that Jimi Hendrix's meteoric ... Read more in Amazon's Jimi Hendrix Store

Customer Reviews

This is a great album five stars of unreleased material.
guitar19
I personally think this his most amazing song ever recorded, even though it's obvious that it was unfinished.
Andrew M. Schirmer
This is an album that only exists because the Hendrix family had Jimi's fans in mind.

...South Saturn Delta is a cluttered mess. Fortunately, just like cleaning out an attic, while listening to this, you are going to find many things you loved that you could never figure out where you placed them. Thats the best analogy that I can give in regards to this record.
Indeed, it is cluttered, and at points even difficult to stomach, but in the end when you look at the album as a whole, you see something more than the mess, something that you just can't resist. At least it's that way for me and other Jimi-philes alike.
The intent of South Saturn Delta was to find a place for some of Jimi's uncomplete work, some stuff previously unavailable after Cry Of Love, Rainbow Bridge, and War Heroes were deleted from Hendrix catalogues, and other material that even the "hardcore" fans haven't heard. While most of the material from the previously mentioned out-of-print titles was spread out over the length of "First Rays Of The New Rising Sun," some couldn't be placed there, whether it be through time constraints, or the fact that some of the stuff just wasn't complete. Instead, all of the unfinished material was pushed over to SSD.
Despite it's somewhat iffy sound quality, and half-finsihed tracks, SSD still manages to be an incredibly endearing title. Maybe it's the honestness found in the fact that Jimi wasn't perfect and he did make mistakes, or maybe it's some of the new ideas he was attempting to blend into his lyricism, I don't know. Much more spiritual, emotional, and poetic work is found throughout.
Even the instrumental tracks (whether they were intended to be instrumentals or Jimi had yet to add vocals) have a fantastic feel, and this is where Jimi shines.

The music in this CD is not five stars, to be honest with you. Many of these are unfinished tracks, jams, and second class performances from Jimi Hendrix. Why five stars then? Because this is what the fans want. We want everything there is in the vaults from Jimi. And it is extremely rare that a record company authorizes albums for the hardcore fans. Instead you get the usual greatest hits I, II, III, ultimate hits, oldies but goodies, etc. This is an album that only exists because the Hendrix family had Jimi's fans in mind. That's why I am giving this a 5 star rating. You shouldnt buy this album before you have acquire all Hendrix authorized albums and all the auithorized live recordings. But for the long time fans, this is a welcome compilation of rare and out of print stuff.

After Electric Ladyland, this is probably the Hendrix CD that I enjoy the most (I am only missing a few scattered studio releases). While it doesn't hold together as an album, being a compilation, it contains a lot of really incredible songs. The production throughout is fantastic, punchy and clear. Many of these tunes were unfinished studio projects post-Electric Ladyland, and as such a lot of them are very dense and complicated productions. Plentiful guitar overdubs abound, and some of Jimi's most memorable solo playing can be found here as well. Overall, these songs find Hendrix on a serious soul/funk tip, with a lot of very bassy, solid grooves and rhythmic composition. Suffice to say, this makes for great head-nodding material, and when you toss a crazy wah solo on top of it all its pure aural bliss.

I have always percieved the nutty, freaked-out "The Stars that Play With Laughing Sam's Dice" as the halfway point, dividing a distinct first and second half to the album. The first half is just beautiful, and rocks straight through, from the manic blues-rock of "Look Over Yonder" to the unbelievable funk/fusion of "Power of Soul"; an incredibly complex tune, with a 2 1/2 minute intro that is a hugely intricate sequence of call-and-response riffs over this monstrous Buddy Miles funk beat. This whole song is one my all-time favorites of Hendrix', and it's very different stylistically from much of his other work. The second half of the cd is more diverse, containing a lot of the unfinished and alternate take cuts. This makes for more interesting listening to a Hendrix fan, but is not quite as satisfying. Highlights include the mellow, hyptnotic instrumental "Pali Gap", a very early drum-machine driven prototype of "Angel", and an interesting alternate take of "All Along the Watchtower".

"South Saturn Delta" can be a tough listen if you're expecting to put in some Jimi and listen to your favorite Hendrix songs flow smoothly from one to another. This is not the case here. "...Delta" assembles fifteen tracks from demo recordings to finished masters, the guitarist's wide range of blues, slow ballads, rock, and jazz fusion is experienced throughout the CD. These fifteen diverse recordings provide a opportunity to look into a window and see one of the most fertile minds in the music history. This is also why "...Delta" can be a difficult listen at times. The songs and styles do not flow from one to another smoothly. In fact, they crash into each other like a very bad day of crosstown traffic.
To fully appreciate "...Delta", one must have an open mind. You can actually close your eyes and get the sensation had Jimi is jamming in your garage, and garage recordings are a fair assessment of the material here. It is very much like an unstructured jam session where Jimi just does whatever he wants to do from track to track. That is the brilliance of this collection of recordings, that is the genius that was Jimi Hendrix. He changes direction at the pace of a hummingbird.
"South Saturn Delta" is not the first choice in Jimi Hendrix's music for the common man. It is more appropriately suited for those folks who'd be quite comfortable letting Jimi hang out and play in their garage or basement. Just don't let the CD lie in there collecting dust. PLAY IT, PLAY IT LOUD!
