Oh, settle down, I'm not recapping THIS douche's whole career (What a waste of time THAT
would be....the Jaggerz? Wild fucking Cherry? No thanks)....the only artifact I have from this lad is a greatest hits affair, which ALSO isn't THAT great except for one thing.....
I LOVE the single "Ah! Leah" for a few reasons...one, it is a fantastic single, sounds as fabulous today as it did when it was released (early 90's or so, TRUE "Nuggets of the Future" material).....great fucking tune, heard it today, and it sparked a couple of memories.....
First of all, when it came out, I actually knew a chick named Leah who was lucky enough to get "AH LEAH" as her vanity license plate....there was probably ONE such Leah in each state, and what an honor to actually know the "Ohio one"
Also, I am reminded of one of Creem Magazines greatest reviews ever....I'm gonna try to recreate this, bear with me......it was a comic strip of "Gilligan's Island"....a crate of Donnie Iris albums washes up on the shore. Skipper: "WOW little buddy, Iris used to be in the Jaggerz, so he needs all the help he can get! He's bound to come looking for these albums and we'll be rescued for sure!"....later they hear on the radio "Donnie Iris has had a huge hit with "Ah Leah", looks like tough times are over for him!".....Gilligan: "Think of the bright side, Skipper, maybe a stereo will wash up on shore.."
Maybe ya had to be there but pretty goddamn funny in my book......
BEST OF DONNIE IRIS-01 Ah! Leah/02 I Can't Hear You/03 Agnes/04 Sweet Merilee/05 Love Is Like a Rock/06 That's the Way Love Ought to Be/07 My Girl/08 Tough World/09 This Time it Must Be Love/10 Do You Compute/11 She's So Euopean/12 The Rapper (Live)
Fuck you, "Ah! Leah" is a great fucking single.......as for the rest of this, if it's ACTUALLY his "best", well.......
If you don't like pictures of some hot, fine ink on some smoking hot babes, move along, because
these files have probably a couple of thousand of them......it's entitled "Women as the Canvass" and I find it, uhhhh,
interesting........not for everyone, perhaps, but certainly for ME.
In the newly created genre of "artists whom I think 90% of their shit sucks but thier "Best Of" makes
for an easy post if they had 10% decent comes" (See: Sparks, Donnie Iris) Sweet, who routinely churned out the bubbleglam stuff in the early 1970's.
Sweet were, for the most part, singer Brian Donnelly, bassist Steve Priest, guitarist Andy Scott, an drummer Mick Tucker, which you know if you paid attention to the intro of "Ballroom Blitz"...
"Ballroom Blitz"is a great fucking song, covered by the Buzzcocks among others, and NOT thier only one....."Wig Wam Bam" was covered (in a MUCH better version IMO) by the Donnas, "Blockbuster" is a pretty damn good unknown rocker, "Fox on the Run" was a fine hard rock single, and "Love is Like Oxygen" is at LEAST better than listening to Poison or someone.......formulaic, professional rock n roll singles band, who "hit" probably more than they missed.
So, what's the prob? The prob is "Little Willie", perhaps one of the most nauseating singles of the early 1970's, and THAT, cousin, is saying a mouthful.
Some bands with long careers melt down EASILLY to a single disc......Sweet is the epitome of this in my book...DO NOT overlook this disc, despite my cynicism, the good shit here FAR out-weighs the bad.........opinions,please, espcially from the previously uninitiated, because there is some fine early 70's rocking shit here.
01 Little Willie/02 Wig-Wam Bam/03 Blockbuster/04 The Ballroom Blitz/05 Teenage Rampage/06 The Six Teens/07 Fox On the Run/08 Action/09 The Lies In Your Eyes/10 Lost Angels/11 Fever of Love/12 Stairway to the Stars/13 Love is Like Oxygen/14 California Nights/15 Mother Earth/16 Sixties Man
I've been harsh on them (it's fun) but this is no question a good piece of early 1970's hard glam-rock
WOW......nearly 31 years, and now it's all over.......today was my final day of work with the State of
Ohio, I am now an "official" retiree......probably the biggest "change" in my life, as I am 52 years old, thusly, I have worked on the same job for over half of my life.....I'm sorry....Im feeling a LOT of different emotions today......
So, why not wrap up the celebratory bonuses (for a while) with a no-joke bang......the COMPLETE "Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers" series....I am not going to go into detail about this, but this is THE classic piece of underground comicdom.....Phineas, Freewheelin' Frank, Fat Freddie (and of course Fat Freddie Scat) were as much of my childhood/teen years as were the bands I post here each day.....if it's new to you, it will be deliciously dated, if you are a longtime fan, you'll be delighted, but the target group I'D like to hear from is maybe people MY AGE who have forgotten about them......this shit IS the 1970's, represented MUCH better than ANY album I could post.
Thank you for patronizing my blog......it's fun, I enjoy it and will continue it until God knows when (although, this is likely the end of 2 posts a day for a while, I have done so for the whole month of June, and, frankly, a LOTTA work).....anyway I enjoy doing this, and I TRULY thank all the many people who have helped me make it work the way I want it to, and two people in particular, Dave Sez and Apanta Bapanta, thanks so much, literally, this blog would not be what it is without your help!
Here's to another few years (at least) of the WORLD WIDE SHARING COMMUNITY making thisblog what i WANT it to be.......a chance for EVERYONE to share ANYTHING they want, from the most unknown bar band to someone with some out-there porn photos.....EVERYONE.
Love you all.
Just found this on Pirate Bay today, haven't even finished the download as I write this, but couldn't
wait to share THIS gem...three volume set of hard to find classic punk singles and EP's, just looking at the track lists is a joy, and I am assuming that, as this is in FLAC, it likely sounds fantastic also.
This was just upped to the Bay a couple of days ago, can really find zero information about it anywhere, seemingly a Blogger creation that I would LOVE to credit, the creator's name being Gorehound, however, the "comments" on the Bay pages don't credit the blog from where they came, rather, it alludes to some sort of pissing contest between the aforementioned Gorehound and the torrent uploader, apparently Gorehound objects to others sharing his shares....if this is true, a foolish and frankly WRONG view of what we are ALL trying to do here.....and if Mr. Gorehound objects to MY sharing of these, he may as well understand how this works.....it's on Pirate Bay now, ANYONE can get it, so while I TRULY do credit and appreciate his great creation, I shake my head in wonder at the (apparently) selfish notion that he alone can share what is now part of the cyber-universe.....and, to be clear, ANYONE, anywhere, anytime is welcome to "re-share" anything I post here, credited or not, the concept of "sharing", once again, needs to be honored above all else.
So, thanks for the work Gorehound, honestly, but sharing is sharing. If you happen to see this and object to my use of it, contact me and we will discuss it.....but, anyway, great work.

Be advised these are some gigantic files, relatively speaking, but, again, I think I at least DO owe it to the creator to present these EXACTLY as I recieved them. Volume 2 tomorrow, certain to be a real fin-scaler as well, be there, aloha.
A continuation of the fine series started yesterday (don't feel like explaning its origins again, check
yesterday's screed)....another fine collection of primo punk singles and EP's, these MUCH more obscure than yesterday's (some I have not even heard of), some is pretty well known (The Fast, Chosen Few, The Normal) and others are delightfully unknown. Again, these FLAC's are pretty big, relatively speaking, and these are seperated individually rather than collected as "comp discs", seemed like the way to do it, and artwork and texts are included if they came that way. I have not yet heard any complaints about my re-use of these (again, see yesterday), and I thank Gorehound for his excellent work in compiling these.

THE FAST-BOYS WILL BE BOYS-01 Boys Will Be Boys/02 Wow Pow Bash Crash
THE NORMAL-T.V.O.D.-01 T.V.OD/02 Warm Leatherette
So, if you picked up the first two volumes, you should like this one as well, more similar to Volume 2
than Volume 1 (much more obscure material), and as of yet I have seen/heard no complaints about my re-post of this, see Volume 1 post for the details.......once again, thanks to the series creator Gorehound for this outstanding effort.
As before, these are, rather than compilations, collections of rare EP's and singles. This one contains Martha & the Muffins classic "Echo Beach" (without a B-side, no idea why), An EP from Wayne County & the Electric Chairs, The Real Kids "All Kinda Girls", a handful of Vice Squad singles and more....these are presented exactly as I grabbed them from Pirate Bay, artwork and texts are included if they were included with the original. Also, remember these FLAC files tend to be quite large downloads, they can be readilly converted to an easier to manage format after download, but I feel an obligation to keep them in their format, as downloaded, when presented here.

Hey, found this one on the Bay as well, for the life of me I see nothing wrong with sharing stuff I
stumble on from THAT great source, as opposed to the stuff already in my collection.......perhaps I am wrong, but goal is to SHARE the great music.......I don't really give 3 shits from where it originates......apparently, certain OTHER blogs that have "de-linked" me from thier site must think I am doing something wrong, but such is life....I just discovered the "de-linking" from a MAJOR site, MUCH bigger and better than thie one, and have not the faintest reason why.....the proprietor has always had a strange attiude towards my blog, oddly, criticizing the music I post as music "in which he has no interest".....interesting HM or anyone else spcifically has never been MY goal, frankly, I post what interests ME.....if anyone else is interested, good, if not, good, also..........no need to have a pissing contest about, I personally have no hard feelings towards the blog which feels MY blog is not worthy of sharing.....I wish them all the best. While surpirsed, I have ALWAYS had the idea, at least, that this particular "other" blog was not a fan of some of the things I do here......and isn't that what makes America great? I think so, I continue to link HIS blog today and will continue to.....he doesn't like MINE.......cetainly that is his option! Without naming the blog, I'll just say its one of the BEST one out there, a TREMENDOUS and long standing effort. I wish them well and long term success, sorry that I couldn't make mine more to your liking, but that is why Baskin Robbins has 31....Iwish youNOTHING but the best in all your future endeavors, and will continue to enjoy YOUR blog each day!
OK, were gonna start off this thing with the "top" of the alphabet, I'll touch a highlight or two before
listing stuff out for ya.....Well, we all know the fine 49th Paralell and the Aztex, Balloon Farm's "Question of Temperature turns up regularly, The Beatles (!) certainly don't, but there are a TON unknown goodies here.....my advice, GO GET EM! Not sure how long this will take, 5-6 day oro, cause there is a LOTof material which many of you should be patient and LOVE, this is a good, thorough post.

For a variety of dull reasaons, these are kind of hard to put together, time consuming and etc.....so
you get three "discs" of alphabetical ordered greatness each day, there are a BUNCH of these, not kidding......and for Jose, YES the tracks are tagged, just you mi amigo! Part 2 features Discs 4-6, not sure but I am guessing there will be over 30 all together. Something EVERYONE should be able to enjoy, I'm sure!
Please enjoy ALL the share blogs out there, they may be different, but we all aim for the same goal, to spread the music to those who may not hear it anyway......ALL of them are great, much greater than this one, in fact but we are all and that is the key! This will go on for over a week and in the meantime, any requests or contributions will be MORE than welcome.......love everyone who participates here!

TELL ME what you think of these.....they are a good bit of work to compile, but seem to have a goodly amount of fresh and rare material.....LOVE me some Davie Allen & the Arrows, the Electra's track cuts the Litter's version FMM,and TONS of "new" sounds to these ears....so much more to come you will literally be SICK OF IT!
FOUR more fine discs of 60's buzzin', fuzzin' rocking garage slams taken from a couple of HUGE
Pirate Bay torrents and broken down to more manageable "disc" size for those who prefer......LOTS of unknowns, lots of classics, if you are a fan of some of the similar stuff I've done before, you'll find I think a minimum of overlap, and a LOT of fresh surprises.......
As always, be good to each other and PLEASE patronize all the other blogs listed here, they are great blogs (better than his one) run by great people (MUCH better than myself), you'll find an entire universe of good stuff out there, just a click away! But while you're here, PLEASE check this set, it's pretty remarkable (other than the alphabetical order thing, I guess you get used to it) and is so cumbersome it really is a good bit of work.....can't wait for Apanta Bapanta return from his buisness trip so I can at least get some help with the "Greek Punk" series that he does such a stellar job with! Hope all is well with you, AB!

Before we begin with Part 4, am thrilled to tell you that my new friend Baxterdog has come through
with a copy of "R Crumb's Book of Genesis".......if you recall, I have one but it is too big for Zippy's restrictions, and I could not figure out how to split a CDisplay file (although a few did try to 'splain it to me).......anyway, I think Baxterdog's is in PDF or something similar, so PLEASE check it out, and all thanks, please to HIM.....as I say all the time, THIS is what I want this whole experience to be about......simple, no bullshit SHARING of the treasures that each us has......as his link is buried in the comments section of the original R Crumb post, which was a while back, I'll copy it here as well, so EVERYONE can get a crack at it:
Thanks again Baxterdog this is a great share that everyone will want to have and enjoy, it's a true classic work of genius.......

Another day, and another chunk of 1960's garage rockin greats, both well known and
unknown....rescued from a huge Pirate Bay torrent, I am unsure of the creator whom I'd love to credit, it's an amazing stash of stuff, reminiscent of the classic torrent work of ChrisGoes or Katrakyla.....the alphabetical order thing has the mark of Katrakyla on it, but I haven't heard from him in years. Anyway, this has been very well recieved here, and once again, by the time I'm finished, you'll be slack-jawwed over the sheer volume of how much stuff is really here......feel free to reprogram any way you wish, and repost/reshare anywhere.....this is fine fine stuff so let's get it spread around!

And the standard of excellence in this set continues to run high, with both the well known (the MC5
represented by thier number IMO, "Looking at You", Orange Wedege, Neal Ford and the Fanatics, Painted Ship) as well as the lesser known greats (Paul Bearer & the Hearsemen, The Others, Piece Kor)....I tell ya at the end of the day, this may be one of the projects that I will look back on with the greatest pride..it IS a good bit of work, but this is some grand music.
And the hits just keep on coming! Continuing to deconstruct this enormous and totally fabulous
torrent, with more 1960's garage obscurities than the human mind can comprehend. I hope that the 30-track or so size that I've selected actually fit on a CD, should that be what you desire, but you can program it however you like (what we actually get is alphabetical order, as good as anything, I guess).......please share these on your own blogs and the like, I'd like them to find as broad an audience as possible, so great these are.
So here we go, the response has been tremendous, as I suspected it might be, and I'mglad to be able to find somethng that you guys seemingly desire, as usual, I ask but one thing: pay it forward, by sharing the treasures that you may stashed away......this will work perfectly if only we would ALL share our goodies

If is blog has been goodto you the psat 3-4 years,I guarentee you are going to love this ultra-mega-kick ass set of greatness.......NO END IN SIGHT, three more discs tomorow!
Tredging foreward with three more huge slabs of garage fuzz singles from those fabulous 1960's,
both classics and surprising obscurities......taken from a large Pirate Bay torrent, I've attempted to break these down to a more manageable size for the folks who still stash their muic on those CD things.......once agin, these came down in alpabetical order, so it's how I've opted to sort them as well, if you have a more suitable programming method, please us it, and do feel free to re-share these wherever you desire, the more good people who get initiated/refamiliarized with these bitching sides, the better!

Well, two more discs wrap up the week and wrap up this exhaustive series, who knows where
tomorrow takes us, got a few more ideas some big mega-projects, not sure how soon they'll be unleashed, and of course, ALWAYS love suggstions and contributions......
Anyway here we have Discs 22/23 of this big time series, taken from a huge Pirate Bay torrent and broken down into more manageable, disc-sized chunks....not that it matters,but the alphabetical oder concept goes fairly askew on Disc 23 just ignore it, and enjoy as you have the rest of the series......it's been a bit of work, to be sure, but worth it to keep some relatively obscure garage rock gems in circulation.......please re-share these if you can or want to, I would love a bigger audience for this underappreciated music.

Been thinking about doing a huge Hendrix project for a while, I consider him to be perhaps
(seriously) the most talented musician of the past 50-60 years, and in my opinion, there is vey little room for arguement. Though, basically, his recording career was relatively brief, maybe 6 years tops counting his work as a session man, a rock star (and one of the very greatest), and as a funk/blues slammer that he was morphing into at the time of his passing. The great thing seems to be that nearly every time the man plugged in, someone was there to record it......for such a short life, we have an absolute MOUNTAIN of recorded music, including a staggering amount of top-notch concert material, simply tons of alternate versions/alternate mixes.....just AMAZING that "Valleys of Neptune" was discovered but 4 years ago or so, and was simply one of the best rock songs of the year.....amazing.
Well, disc 1 intersperses brief interviews with great music, a fine alternate take of"Hey Joe" which I had not heard before, a rambling live "Gloria", a version of "Sgt Peppers Lonely hearts Club Band", some other alternates ("Little Wing", "Foxey Lady")......how's it sound? Because that's about the half of it......check the track list you want this.......the session work on the Rosa Lee Brooks tracks is beyond amazing, you could identify it a mile away.
Disc 2 is a series of "jams", not MY favorite thing necessarily, but "Traffic Jam", "Hey Baby Jam",
"Rainy Day Super Jam" are at least interesting, because various members of Traffic turn up, and we get an alternate take on the great "Valleys Of Neptune".......guys, if you like Hendrix even a small bit, this set is essential to understanding his total greatness.
The third disc contains some free form stuff as well, a lengthy"Voodoo Chile", and "1983", we also get "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".......fine, fine, stuff,not just "interesting" but SEROUSLY listenable/enjoyable (if yer a Hendrix fan......actually, I am, see?)
Disc 4 goes in a more bluesy direction (great versions of "Machine Gun", "Lord I Sing the Blues r You and Me", LOTS more, gotta also mention "7 Dollars In My Pocket".
More blues/jams dominate Disc5, "Heavy Rider Jam" rocks hard and plenty more interestng stuff: "Lower Alcatraz", "Peace In Mississippi").
Disc 7 gives us some outtakes/alts of some "Experience" era stuff, always loved "Stone Free", an great to hear another take, "Up From the Skies/EXP" are ones I never thought I hear outtakes of, this is a fine disc as well......
And Disc 8.......alternate takes of great shit like "Fire", "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)", "Spanish Castle magic"........again, grade a stuff, this is a fin, wonderful release, you will love it and more...I have few more of these "documentary"-like set, and I am going to put them up, also, before tearing into my mountain of concert recordings.....for now, I defy you to tall me this isn't a fantastic set......
If you DONT like it, stay away from this site for a week or two, because this Hendrix project is not about to be half-assed, I think it's going to be a great project (btw: you have any rare Hendrix? now's the time to break it out and share, share, share.........I probably have close to 100 live shows and plan on probably posting most all of them, so if you have a rare boot or something, let me know so the rest of us ca enjoy it as well!
I think this is a FINE 8-Disc set, considerng it's a hodgepodge......if you download it (you should),

OK, links will be around in a little bit......if you don't like Hendrix, might as well spend a few days away from here because there is a BUNCH headed yer way!
Today we feature a fine four disc grab bag/hodgepodge of outtakes/alternate takes/actates/and live
cut, in the form of a set called "First Steps"......again, if you are a Hendrix fanatic, likely there are some gems here with which you are unfamiliar, if you are NOT a Hendrix fanatic, well, sorry, next week we'll get to something else which might be more your liking.....but NOT liking Hendrix? Well, to each thier own......
Well, Disc One simply a ton of alternate versions of stuff we love, my fave "I Don't Live Today" turns up a couple of times, a couple of live "Purple Haze"'s (not my favorite but a great live number), an INSTRUMENTAL "Hey Joe".....tons more great stuff for the Jimi Hendix "completionist"....
Disc Three features a few versions of "Wild Thing" (IMO Hendrix OWNED that song)......lots of other goodies, a few versions of "1983", a great "Crosstown Traffic", a lot of alternate versons of "Axis" era material.......I swear, every note this man ever played is recorded SOMEWHERE, and I A GLAD for this
Finally Disc 4 concentrates more on "ElectricLadyland" era stuff, which is fine as it is of course a 5-
star classic, and alternate takes of "Voodoo Chile" and "Rainy Day Dream Away" are always welcome......
OK, unless you are a huge Hendrix fan, this might be a bit sloppy for you.......personally, I would buy a record of Jimi Hendrix vomitting, so ALL of this is great shit to me.......if you agree (or not) please drop a comment, but more to come this week, LOTS more!

Pretty good reception for the multi-disc epics of the past couple of days, here is yet another.....this
one perhaps my favorite, very comprehnsive with lots of previously unreleased tracks...the four CD (plus one DVD, sorry, too much of a pain to upload the DVD)-set "West Coast Seattle Boy" was released in 2010, athough to be honest, is one of those "fan" comps, not always the highest quality recordings, BUT better than "average bootleg" quality for the most part.
Disc 1 I find the most interesting as it includes a variety of early Hendrix session work with lots of other artists....the two Rosa Lee Brooks tracks were included on the "51st Anniversary" set, but also a strong variety of a lot of others, The Isley Brothers, Little Richard, King Curtis......amazing how identifiable and unique his sound was, even on this session work.
Final disc is highlighted by the Hendrix/Arthur Lee collabration "Everlasting First", a fairly killer live Band of Gypsies "Stone Free", and assorted other odds and ends......some of it now scraping the barrel ("All God's Children", "Peter Gunn/Catasrophe")......clearly, this set if for fans/completists, if one were a more casual fan or novice, this could easilly be pared down to 1 awesome, very listenable disc, with some easy re-programming.
Nonetheless, as a fan I am glad to have this, worth it for the highlights, don't know what the focus
will be yet for tomorrow, once I get started on some of the fantastic live shows, you'll be amazed at how many good ones there are.

*GRRRRRRR some of these damn CD's of mine.....they play just fine in my stereos, my cars.....and my fucking computer won't read them.......if anyone else has this exact set and are able to share Tracks 01-05, please help out if ya can.....at least no problems with the 20-minute jam, or, most critically, "Untitled Basic Track"!
Lots more where this came from, hope you're enjoying these!
Hey, MAYBE the answer is "yes", I left it open......today and tomorrow we have the (6 discs each),
Volumes 1 & 2 of "The Jimi Hendrix Studio Sessions".......again, it's for FANS/completists, you'll find moments here and there, you'll also find multiple takes of the same songs, as well as some overlap with some of the other sets.....
Well, let's see what we got here...Volume1 (today) has more moments than tomorrow's Volume 2, be forewarned. Disc 1 is fairly stacked, with a handfull of tracks recorded in Hendrix' apartment, and some good alternate takes of some earlier Experience tracks, mostly interesting stuff. Disc 2 is a mishmash, anchored by SIX versions of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)", conveniently programmed back to back.
Disc 3, believe it or not, actually opens with six MORE versions of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)", wow, as well as some other alternate mixes from the "Electric Ladyland" era....some interesting moments, but anyone, ANYONE, who listens to all TWELVE versions of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)", in order, ought to be eligible for some kind of plaque or something.....let me know if ya be man enough (or bored enough).
Disc 4 is basically a series of jams featuring Hendrix, Jack Bruce, Buddy Miles, and Jim McCarty......nothing spectacular, similar to some sloppier Cream jams, even working in a version of "Sunshine of Your Love". By Disc 5 we are scraping (remember there is another volume), more jams and alternate mixes, hey, we're BIG FANS, right? The final disc contains MORE jams (plus a version of "Gloria"), hey, I told you, EVERY TIME this dude plugged in, SOMEONE was taping
Volume 2 (six MORE discs) tomorrow, I think I'll torment you with more studio outtakes and such before we get to all the stunning live material.
Seen 2 new films the past 3 days, "Snowpiercer" and the new "Planet of the Apes".......enjoyed the
both tremendously, both at least A- films, with "Snowpiercer" being (IMO) slightly the better film....love to hear what you guys think of them, or, actually, any film reviews/recommendations/anti-recommendations, LOVE to hear you guys opinions!

I got this one in FLAC way back whenever, not got time to convert, if you need it converted, you're gonna hafta do it after download (it isn't hard, if you need help, just axe!)
Volume 2 coming up for tomorrow!
SURE, there CAN be......but not here.....simply have too much good matrial on the shelves, and I
guess I'm comitted to rolling out most of it during this series.......SOME damn fine moments on these discs, also some forgettable ones, which, for something as comprehensive as this, is bound to happen.
Today we pick up where we left off yesterday, with "The Jimi Hendrix Studio Sessions, Volume 2".....hey TOLD you I have a tonne of this stuff, yes, we are scraping, but I DO have a couple of more scrapes before get to all the totally fab concerts I keep teasing ya with!
So as for this one, six more discs, much like volume 1.......still fairly random assembalage of various tracks, you hunt and peck an edit for what you may want......
OK, disc 1 includes sessions with Buddy Miles, Jim McCarty, and Dave Holland...they run through a fair set of stuff, ie "Valleys of Neptune", "Ezy Rider/Star spangled Banner.....decent set. Disc 2 includes the John McLauglin jams, some Experince sessons, as well as soms stuff with Buddy Miles and Billy Cox (known as the " Mannish Boy Sessions")
I point that out cause Disc 3 is comprised of a LOT of "Mannish Boy" sessions (LOTS).....when we get to disc No. 4, we get various sessions: April 24 w/ Billy Cox and Rocky Issac, May 7 with Stephen Stills and Johnny Winter, and May 14 with Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell.....
Disc 5 gives us Hendrix messing around in the studo, joined by Larry Young and others on various interesting demo tracks......and Disc 6 wraps things up for this set with some sessions with Stephen Stills, John Sebastian, and Buddy Miles, also some with Miles/BillyCox....mostly this six-disc set is the participants playing around in the studio, and we DO get an interesting moment or three, we just have to search the out!
