Customer Reviews

I have come to like this album very much.
J. Bynum
Every song is done very tastefully and you can tell that all the artists probably had a great time in making these songs.
Guybert
This is the BEST of all the Hendrix tribute albums.

Move on over, let P.M. Dawn, Beck/Seal, the Cure, Body Count, Buddy Guy et al., take over. An eclectic tribute album of Hendrix's greatest tunes featuring rockers, rappers and R&B artists. The Cure's cover of "Purple Haze" or Body Count's "Hey Joe" or P.M. Dawn's "You Got me Floatin' is worth the purchase price alone. Even if you didn't grow up with Henrix as a staple diet for your rock n roll body, this offering is a fourteen course meal of his musical buffet. One is left with the feeling that this collaborative group of muscians, aside from their own creative interpretative presentations, have given great reverence to a man and his music that has enormous staying power. Two thumbs and eight fingers up!

There are more Hendrix fans buying this almost expecting Jimi to be channelling his spirit from the other side through these musicians. This is not a seance, its a tribute album. If you're looking to hear Hendrix play, put in an Experience disc, or Band of Gypsies, or one of the hundreds of bootlegs that have been released by now..

If you are in the mood to hear Hendrix's work show why it was so good, and how it lives up to different interpretations, 12 years later, this disc is still one of the best you can put in, and in my opinion, it stands up to Hendrix's own work itself.

There are two tracks that surpass the originals by leaps and bounds. PM Dawn's "Got me Floatin'" takes a filler track and makes it completely unique and soulful, and MACC (Really just Temple of the Dog) covering "Hey Baby (Land of The New Rising Sun)". These two tracks make this disc worth buying if nothing else.

The Cure revitalize "Purple Haze" giving a trippy, Gothed-out rendition that shows how versatile a song Hendrix really wrote, Living Colour give "Crosstown Traffic" a genuine feel without just carbon copying the original, and Pat Metheney's "Third Stone From The Sun" and Nigel Kennedy's "Fire" give a pretty good idea of areas Hendrix may have gone himself with his music had he not died so young.

There are some surprising deadweight songs, such as Buddy Guy's version of "Red House" and Clapton's dry version of "Stone Free" almost make you wonder if Hendrix wrote those songs FOR those guys to play, because theres nowhere for them to go inside those songs, except where Jimi had already been.

Stone Free is as good of a tribute recording as you will find. You can take any style of music and change it's genre to make a new sound but this CD was able to keep the vibe and make it fresh. All the performers were able to put their mark into the heart of each song. When I first heard The Cure doing Purple Haze, I thought "this won't work" but now I find it has all the colors and textures that Jimi was famous for. Jimi was always the first to explore new ways to get the "Love" into his music so it would be appropriate to let these artist do the same. Buddy Guy just belts out Red House, Clapton nails Stone Free just as the rest give their all to create a total package. I can listen to this entire CD and not want to stop. Jimi would play music with everyone he could so he could keep creating new ideas and in many ways that is what he has done here. I can imagine all these great musicians working with him and coming up with this experience. Jaco, Beck, Chrissie, Buddy and Jimi all jam'n up good times sure works for me.

You don't have to be a fan of every contributor to this tribute album to enjoy the effort and end results that were achieved. You don't even have to be a tremendous Hendrix fan. What you get is an eclectic set of interpretations of the songs of a very talented individual. Of course, it helps if you can play guitar, which I suspect is why the strongest tracks involve Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Vernon Reid (Living Colour). Even so, this collection goes a long way to proving just how far ahead of his time Jimi Hendrix was. Maybe that's why his music doesn't sound as dated as some others from that era, and maybe that's why this compilation of talent works so well.

This is NOT your typical tribute album. For this reason it is often times excels ( the Cure's cover, Jeff Beck/ Seal cover)

and other times I didn't find it particularly interesting. But what this album does that most don't is allow a large array of musical styles to pay tribute to one of the most influential rock musicians ever. That's the beauty of Jimi's music, not only was he an excellent and creative guitarist, but he made great music and wrote timeless songs (check out two completely different covers of "Little Wing" by Stevie Ray Vaughn and Sting, respectively).

To the typical purists and guitar nuts, this is NOT your album.

To those who can appreciate varying types of music and appreciate that Hendrix' music can be interpreted and presented in so many different ways - this is a really nice effort and a nice tribute to a great musician.
