Jimi Hendrix Studio Releases

Jimi Hendrix catalog is not the easiest to trace. Primarily because there have so many re-issues of the same material. We have compiled a list of most of the commercial releases to consider. It consists of the three Jimi Hendrix Experience albums as well as the most relevant posthumous available.

Personally, our favorite release is the debut, Are You Experienced. However, we recommend them all. This is after all the one and only Jimi Hendrix whose fingers seemed to generate magic every time he played his guitar. 

In March 2010, Sony Music Entertainment and Experience Hendrix LLC have entered into an agreement that will result in an array of 'deluxe' reissues of the legendary guitarist's extensive catalogue. Too, live releases are planned to be released.

Studio reissues - The albums below have some real gems.
(These basically replace the previous albums Cry Of Love, Rainbow Bridge, War Heroes, Crash Landing Landing, Loose Ends, Voodoo Slop, Midnight Lightning, and others.

First Rays Of The New Rising Sun and South Saturn Delta are the new standards while Voodoo Soup is out of print, but second hand copies of it can be found. It has a cool jam "Peace in Mississippi" that the other compilations left of.

VALLEYS OF NEPTUNE 
THE BRAND-NEW, COMPLETELY UNRELEASED STUDIO ALBUM!

Features "Valleys Of Neptune," one of the most sought after of all of Hendrix's commercially unavailable recordings. 

Includes exciting 1969 arrangements of classic signature songs "Red House," "Fire" and "Stone Free." 

Also includes unheard studio versions of Hendrix's inspired interpretations of "Bleeding Heart" by Elmore James and Cream's "Sunshine Of Your Love."

I wouldn't consider this an essential album, but it has some plenty to like. The instrumental track "Pali Gap" is a gem indeed, this version is longer than the one first released on Rainbow Bridge. The title track is pretty cool, a jazzy piece with a horn section. 

The two tracks that were released on the live Band of Gypsys, "Power of Soul" and Message to the Universe" and given completely different treatment and sound mighty fine.  

Little Wing is more like a jam, the even throw in a touch of the "Hey Joe" bass run.
