EDITORS’ NOTES

This massive collection, overseen by the Hendrix family and produced by Hendrix’s main producer and engineer Eddie Kramer, obviously contains plenty of highlights. The overdubs are removed from the mid-‘70s material and plenty of these often-bootlegged recordings are given the proper mix and attention. Hits such as “Purple Haze” are slightly different mixes that better show Hendrix’s humorous side as he chuckles his way through the mix. The live material is always welcome, whether it’s Hendrix strolling through Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone,” or “All Along the Watchtower,” Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode” or his own “Fire,” “Little Wing,” “Red House” or “Voodoo Child (Slight Return).”  Early versions of “Room Full of Mirrors,” “Bold As Love” and “Little Wing” give insight into Hendrix’s development in the studio and show both his instrumental prowess and his sense of humor. The mix of “Third Stone from The Sun” finds Hendrix cracking up over the “space” chatter.  “Gloria” features Hendrix creating his own great short story. Highlights and surprises galore.
