Can There BeTOO MUCH Hendrix? Part 2

0
0
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 two offers up a buncha more  versions of faves ("Purple Haze", "Foxey Lady"), but also versions of lesser-knowns ("Cat Talkin' To Me", "The Stars That Play With laughing Sam's Dice", "Taking Care of No Buisness.......a fine disc for the completist/collector.......)


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!
