Customer Reviews

Mark of genius

Raw and uncompromising, with the sort of genius and front of an artist who was never destined to last. Those who live for guitar and its varied expressions and power should get this as soon as they can. Its worth the price (actually its is being given away). Hendrix's virtuosity is naked and actually confronting. Play it loud and see what the neighbours do.

Jimi Hendix - Band Of Gyspys

Although they were together for less than a year, the Band of Gypsys provided the springboard for some of Hendrix's most soulful, enduring music. The Experience's psychedelic maelstrom encouraged Hendrix's attention-grabbing antics, but Buddy Miles and Billy Cox supplied the funky, backbeat-driven rhythm section he sought at the turn of the decade. "Who Knows", "Power of Soul" and "Message to Love" blister with the deep funk rock sound Hendrix was turning towards.

And then there's "Machine Gun". Quite possibly the most wildly explosive and painfully vivid musical statement ever caught live on tape, Hendrix's 12-minute psychedelic soul mindbender surged from the tragic violence at Altamont to the chaos and devastation of Vietnam. In this one song, he pioneered the simultaneous use of four different effects pedals and cemented his reputation as one of the greatest guitarists of all time.

Utterly Amazing

This is an amazing album. It is, no doubt, one of the best live albums of all time. Everything on here is great; the intensity of Machine Gun, the funk of Changes or the sheer fun of Message To Love.

Buy it.

In his brief four-year reign as a superstar, Jimi Hendrix expanded the vocabulary of the electric rock guitar more than anyone before or since. Hendrix was a master at coaxing all manner of unforeseen sonics from his instrument, often with innovative amplification experiments that produced astral-quality feedback and roaring distortion. His frequent hurricane blasts of noise and dazzling showmanship -- he could and would play behind his back and with his teeth and set his guitar on fire -- has sometimes...
