Yeah...I thought--a Jimi Les Paul?? lol
I'm skeptical. If it was good it would been released in his lifetime or at least long before the present.
Spot on. There have already been so many albums put out with "previously unreleased material" after he died that this has to be the bottom of the barrel that he would have never wanted anyone to hear.
Oh, totally. His death is proof that these songs are not worth a damn. He shouldn't have died if he wanted this material to see the light of day.
Hendrix's 4 studio albums plus Band Of Gypsys were great, but everything since then has been like, "well, we found a bunch more demo or live tracks laying around, so we'll release another album". I'm skeptical too, but am prepared to be proven wrong.
Janie Hendrix has been wringing every penny she can out of the estate.
Ever appreciate an artist so much that you have to have everything that they did? You might not want to pay the man (or Janie) for it, but if you want it you will. If you don't want it and want to be critical of it, go for it, but the optics are such that your are nothing more than cranky. Chill.
Cranky is well done here. It's the predominant TDPRI leitmotif.
Yeah, at this point his "previously unreleased" material was unreleased for good reasons.
Fortunately for Janie, there are still lots of folks out there who will buy ANY recordings with Jimi's name on them.
I learned my own lesson many, many years ago when I bought a bootleg recording of "Johnny Winter and Jimi Hendrix - LIVE!" Just a noisy mess of a recording of a couple guys too loaded to do any better.
Not saying this new release is that bad, but I'll remain in the skeptical camp. And I'm a big Hendrix fan and own a pile of his stuff.
Some may call that "cranky" - I prefer to think it's more along the lines of "realistic."
When Zep's album Coda came out, I was real happy to hear some Zep songs that I haven't heard before. After listening, there were only about 3 songs I liked which was a let down. Later, I came to appreciate the other songs.
I'll be glad to listen to new Hendrix tunes, may not like them all at first, but they'll be appreciated.
I hear what you're saying, but as someone that's purchased all his albums and a couple box sets, the returns really diminish. It tends to be disappointing.
I love Jimi. That said, much of the "unreleased" stuff we've received in the last 15 years is from when he was utterly exhausted and treading water. Management kept him on the road too much.
At his best, he is hard to top. I love Jimi.
If I really like an artist, I do try and get what I can. Thing is, many have a longer period of productivity than he had the chance to have. Then we're stuck listening to another "unearthed" take of Isabella...this time with no vocals!
I will give it a listen, but I can't guarantee I'll lay my money down.
I love Hendrix, but I think I can hear the sound of the bottom of the barrel being scraped
Is 50-year old tape still playable? Ghost player maybe?
It may be that most of us are old......and cranky.
When Hendrix died in 1970, there was a bunch of great unreleased stuff.
47 years later, I'm fairly certain all of it has come out by now. This sounds like a barrel scraping cash grab, although I'd be happy to be proven wrong.
How many albums has he released per year since he died?
I think the last one was him farting on the toilet while the tape was rolling....
Maybe it's set to auto-tune now...
Haha, this was only a stepping stone for Gibson...
Nope. And I don't I expect to be criticized or instructed for doing so.
