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

4.0 out of 5 stars For Avid Fans November 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If the bootleggers had released a set of this quality, fans would be raving about it, but as a mainstream commercial product, it's getting mixed reviews. Let's take this set in the spirit in which it was intended: as an official bootleg for completist Hendrix fans. This is not a place to start discovering Hendrix. If you're a young person new to Hendrix's music, start with the 4 albums released during his lifetime("Are You Experienced", "Axis:Bold As Love", "Electric Ladyland" & "Band of Gypsies"), then check out some of his live albums("Woodstock", "Monterey", "Winterland", "Berkeley"). Here's a rundown of what you get. I won't extensively analyze the "Disc One" of Hendrix's early recordings as a sessionman, since it's not my area of expertise. They're of variable sound & musical quality, some featuring Hendrix more prominently than others. The best tracks are "Testify" by The Isley Brothers and "My Diary" & "Utee", both by Rosa Lee Brooks.
Here's what you get on the remaining CD's:

Disc Two:
1.Fire(a new remix of the released recording. Longer and with a cold ending)
2.Are You Experienced?(an alternate backing track attempt. For fans only)
3.May This Be Love(new remix of the released recording, with a double-tracked vocal throughout)
4.Can You See Me?(an unreleased mono mix of the released recording. For all you Mono-maniacs)
5.The Wind Cries Mary(live in Stockholm 1967.Previously released on the 4-CD set "Stages")
6.Love or Confusion(new mix with alternate vocals)
7.Little One(original instrumental version by Hendrix[guitar & bass] Dave Mason(sitar) & Mitch Mitchell(drums).

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD OVERVIEW OF HENDRIX-BUT NOT MUCH NEW MUSIC November 16, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Four audio discs-45,71,71,73 minutes each approximately. The DVD is approximately 90 minutes. The sound overall is very good to excellent, depending on the recording source. The attached 54 page booklet has many color and b&w photographs of Hendrix in the studio and on stage. The entire booklet is taken up with track by track information that helps put this music in a better perspective. The discs are snapped in, inside a folding long box of substantial cardboard,and the DVD slips into a paper sleeve by itself.

As even casual fans know, there have been more posthumous Hendrix releases (most of them strictly money making product to cash in on the Hendrix name), than when he was alive. Without a doubt these money spinners left something to be desired, and the same could be said for this new collection. But this set is different because it lays out Hendrix' music from his professional beginnings (1964), through to his incendiary playing (into 1970) with his own sidemen. And with no "new" Hendrix material (the "Black Gold" stuff, the complete Chas Chandler tapes, the Stephen Stills/Johnny Winter/Hendrix tracks, or maybe all the jams with jazz organist Larry Young for instance) being released, the majority of tracks in this set have been heard in different form, on previous live or studio releases. Because of overly familiar material, this set is closer to a 3 1/2 star rating. But on these discs are many scorching performances that haven't been in widespread (legal) release before. The 90 minute DVD adds depth, with Hendrix' life in and out of music. By using not only his music, but personal effects belonging to Hendrix, and his own words (but not his voice), you get some sense of who he was and what he became.

2.0 out of 5 stars I Expected More - Could Have Been Much Better November 16, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Sorry guys, I wanted to write a glowing review of this new collection. I've been listening to it all evening. It's good, but nothing like I expected or what it could have been.

I am a sucker for Hendrix material. I will buy anything - like this box set. It is an anthology of his career from the earliest beginnings to the very end. There are a few gems on here, and a lot of songs of lesser quality. I am still glad I bought it, but I'm a Jimi addict. I'll buy anything with his name on it. If you are a long time collector then you probably already have most of the material in this set and I know the boots are almost as good sound quality as these discs.

1) the DVD is Jimi in his own words - I've taped it twice on television. No extra material - 90 min of documentary. I wish they had filled up the DVD with concert footage. There is plenty of it. This documentary is excellent, but no reason to buy the box set. It's on cable a couple of times a month.

However, the documentary itself, Jimi in His Own Words is excellent. Easily the best doc on Jimi in a long time. It's all his own words and you get a deeper insight into the man he was. Also has many rare photos of young Jimi when he was a kid.

2) Disc 1 - the biggest disappointment - Jimi's early years. It's only 45 min long. Discs of early Jimi have been circulating on the net for years - and the sound quality almost as good as these new discs. Why only 45 min? There is lots more material. Why not include Curtis Knight or Lonnie Youngblood? Those showed him playing much more than the cuts on this disc.

You really don't hear much of Hendrix's guitar on these rhythm and blues tracks. They could have EASILY filled up the other 35 blank min of this disc just as other underground Early Jimi discs have.

I dig it. It's cool to hear the early stuff with other artists. The other cd's are filled with lots of demo or alternate takes--it's really for fans and not the casual listener. Read more

How much more stuff is left in "the vault?"
Well, as mentioned elsewhere, what Janie (Jimi's adopted younger sister) calls "unreleased" is a bit of a stretch from what *I* would call "unreleased."

There's a lot of material that has been released over the last 40 years, but there are still live shows and studio tracks,... Read More

Jimi Hendrix Live Concerts
I've tried. There's a little link at the bottom of the official hendrix website. I wrote a little bit saying they should release more complete concerts like the RAH but when i went to submit the site said it didn't go through.

Track list?
I agree. I won't be preordering until the track list is revealed. By the time that Sony reveals the contents, the preorder price will be lower than it is now.
