I adore Hendrix and have around 35 - 40 discs and all the old Experience LPs and Cry of Love. I wouldn't buy any Jimi product for years in honor of the family, who finally got rights to him music in the early '90s.

Then i subscribed to Hendrix magazine and have purchased many of the Hendrix Official releases.

First Rays of the New Rising Sun is my favorite of the posthumous releases, because that was what he wanted to put out before he died.

I feel that Electric Ladyland was one of the top 10 releases of the '60s. It was the realization of what Jimi could do with Redding and Mitchell.

I also believe that his is one of the worst tales of exploitation of talent by greedy hangers-on. I always supported Frank's fights with his record companies, he may have been wrong on the details, but on the substance of how they are leeches, he was on the money -

They say that Michael Jeffreys, Jimi's manager, used to take satchels of cash to the Bahamas...so sad.

In addition to the main releases, I got a posthumous CD called Voodoo Soup. As I understand it it is one of many releases that has some overlap with First Rays of the New Rising Sun. Not bad stuff (Belly Button Window is a real charmer), but it's unfortunate that his legacy has been muddied somewhat by all these cash-in releases. Makes it hard to figure out where Jimi's head was really at. I also have one called South Saturn Delta which is a real mixed bag, with some later stuff like Midnight Lightning mixed with early B-sides like Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice. Confusing, but Jimi was always an inspired guy, so it's still entertaining.

visit http://www.jimihendrix.com/index.php - that is the official website and links to a catalogue, you can sort out the official releases, posthumous and during his lifetime.

The Dagger Records stuff is great, releases of concerts and studio jams, I have a few. South Saturn Delta is an official hendrix posthumous release, and it is studio stuf, you may or may not want to delve that deep.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience box set they offer is a real goldmine. There are things on there that are better than what was released, and tracks that will show the development of eventual released tracks, like a tremendous work-up of "Third Stone From the Sun".

I would also recommend "Blue Wild Angel" and "Woodstock" both on CD and DVD, great Hendrix performances in their entirety.

And for those, like me who think "Band Of Gypsys" is one of the truly great live concert LPs, they sell an expanded version, called the "Fillmore Concrts" with a lot of unreleased tracks.

I could go on forever, I can listen to Jimi almost anytime and find something revelatory in his playing....he wrote the rule book on electric guitar experimentation. Les Paul may have invented it, but Jimi made it talk.

Watchtower is the best.

The intro/theme to Highway Chile is killer... too bad it doesn't fit the rest of the song.

The solo on that song has got to be one of the greatest he ever did. It may be one of the greatest anyone ever did.

I just watched the Band Of Gypsys video, and realized for the first time that he did most of that solo just standing there in front of a bank of amps with his feet together, his eyes closed, and his first finger barred over the twelfth fret. He did everything with the other three fingers, with a pick and the whammy bar in his other hand.

BTW: Buddy Miles died a couple days ago. He was the last surviving member of that band. :cry:
