This 8LP collection tracks Jimi s incredible journey from R&B sideman to international acclaim.
This collection presents for the first time the most sought after of Jimi s pre-Experience recordings as a sideman for such Rhythm & Blues stars as The Isley Brothers, Don Covay, Little Richard and others. All of the misinformation and fake purported to feature Hendrix are swept aside for fans.
The LPs feature previously unreleased and commercially unavailable studio recordings from every chapter of his career, live recordings with the Experience and Band Of Gypsys spanning 1967 through 1970.
The studio recordings include never before released [or even bootlegged!] alternate versions of such classic fare as Are You Experienced, Fire, May This Be Love, Love Or Confusion and many more. In addition, new songs such as Hear My Freedom, Hound Dog Blues and Lonely Avenue make their debut as part of this special collection.
To provide further insight and understanding into Hendrix s creative development, WCSB presents acoustic and electric home recordings of Electric Ladyland signature songs such as Long Hot Summer Night, 1983 (A Merman I Shall Turn To Be), as well as My Friend and Angel later featured as part of First Rays Of The New Rising Sun. WCSB also features another major revelation an electric demo version of Bob Dylan s Tears Of Rage .
WCSB also features a previously unreleased version of Everlasting First, Jimi s 1970 celebrated collaboration with Arthur Lee & Love, an unheard 1967 studio session with Traffic s Dave Mason as well as an expanded presentation of Jimi s legendary session with jazz organist Larry Young.
Four hours of rare and previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix.

Masterful. The production values are superb, the tracks aren't some BS junk that was recorded without any thought. Needless to say, I have been so impressed with how this release of Jimi's material has been handled.
Worth every penny and brings tears to the eyes of Jimi's fans because it has been far to long that we have been able to sit back and hear the master do what he did the best - music.
Why do I say this? At 61.00, it's easily the best priced deal in music I've ever experienced....and I buy a lot of music. This is one of those collections that may even sell more or generate more interest, if it was priced at around 179.99, just because it would sound and seem more valuable.
The quality of this box, the packaging, the booklet, art, and most importantly, the vinyl, is unsurpassed. The vinyl is flat, heavy, and pristine. There is no noise or distortion whatsoever.
Everything about this is so well thought out and so complete. The early stuff is amazing. I am just floored by the sound quality.
Normally I'd say that if you're a Hendrix fan, get this. However, in this case, given the price and volume of music, as well as the diverse offering here, I say, buy it if you like rock and roll.
This has become, along with The Rolling Stones 1964-1969 vinyl box, my absolute favorite box set. I still can't believe the price. Please get it now!
I can't recommend this set enough. For the money, if you are a Hendrix fan at all, just click buy. It's that much of a no-brainer.
First of all, and most importantly, the music is incredible, beautiful, powerful, jaw-droppingly amazing. If you have even a minimal appreciation for Hendrix, blues guitar, SRV, or... well... music, you really should consider getting this. I wanted to start with the good stuff (yes, I am impatient) and threw on the last LP from the set. As "Red House" blared from my speakers, I was in awe...
Second, what is the deal with this price? This set would be well worth it at twice the price. At around sixty dollars, it's a complete steal. Eight LP's of very high quality, a wonderful booklet with some great pictures, and previously unreleased music -- really, really good music... I'm very happy I got this.
This set just emphasizes even more what a tragedy it was that he died when he did. Genius.
