Can There Be TOO MUCH Hendrix? (Part 8)

Another handful of interesting artifacts today, first off we have what was most likey an entertaining
show, Hendrix teamed with BB King and Paul Butterfield as well as others, including Elvin Bishop and Al Kooper, performing at the Generation Club in NYC 4/9/68......this single disc is the only version I have ever heard or been aware of however, the picture I located here seems to imply that originally this was two discs.....it's not like one of the discs is missing, as material from both discs appear on my version, I can only assume it is an editted version someone scaled down along the way somewhere. Anyway, it's mostly blues jams, as one might imagine, also a version of "Like a Rolling Stone", which is about 1/5 as entertaining as the version on Monterey. However, as one might guess with such an all-star lineup there are going to be some moments. Also, if anyone has the tracks I'm lacking here, "Ad-Libbed Impromtu Blues" and "Kooper's Shuffle", love to hear em and add em here.

The "Blues" album, released after his death, contains a collection of 11 bluesy numbers, 7 of which were previously unreleased.....interesting mostly, I think, for the opening acoustic version of "Hear My Train a-Comin'", the album concludes with the better-known version of the same song, the one appearing on "Rainbow Bridge".  Honestly some of this stuff might never have been released had Hendrix lived (the "Born Under a Bad Sign" is not the greatest), but still, previously unreleased Hendrix stuff always has a certain value to some of us.

I think for today I'll wrap up with the Experience BBC Sessions, a double disc set from 1967-69, with some interesting song selections to be sure....."Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window"...."Rythm and Blues World Science"....."Traveling With Inexperience"......."I Was Made to Love Her", as well, of course as some smoking favorites, ("Love or Confusion", "Manic Depression", "Wait Until Tomorrow"......quite a fine set and a good document of a particular time/place.
