If you are reading this you just went past Amazon's complete description of Valleys and you know what your getting. Jimi was an extra ordinary entertainer when he was alive and I'm sure he would approve of what is being done on his behalf. Of course people make money on it. So did Jimi. Saw him in '67 at South Shore Music Tent in Braintree, MA. My seat was torn(canvas) so I sat on stage ten feet from the man. I really like new stuff from the vaults done right.
Neat that you saw Jimi live. I was 5 years old in '67, but later, once I heard his music I was hooked for life. In fact I used to have 2 wall posters that went with me to every apartment: Einstein and Jimi Hendrix. I had a Hendrix button on my purse when I was a college freshman in 1980. A classmate said to me one day, "who's that black guy?". The teaching assistant for the class set her straight. Valleys sounds like prime music to me.
Laura, You have the right idea. Don't follow the pack, decide on your own. You will grow to love quite a bit of "classic" rock if you do not categorize it as such. Einstein was a genius with strange hair and a love for women, so I have been told. He did not have any limitations. Jimi had the same idea with music. Enjoy.
