Can There Be TOO MUCH Hendrix? Part 4

0
0
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!
