Biography by Richie Unterberger & Sean Westergaard
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. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cry of Love 15 July 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The last real studio album that Hendrix ever did. Future releases were never sanctioned by the man and in the main are mostly dross except 'Rainbow Bridge'. This album is on a par with 'Axis, Bold as Love'. From the opening track you know you are in for something good. The best track is popssibly 'Angel'. The final track ' Belly button window'is prophetic and a little sad to listen to. A belter of an album get it if you can.

Angel, drifting, ezy rider, bellybutton window.... what more can u say? Some of the greatest Hendrix music ever released. Tracks appear elsewhere with other weaker material but this album is 100% pure class.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Really Hendrix' Last Album 3 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
The original LP release of Cry of Love (named after what Jimi had called his last US tour band) was the first album released after his death.

Mitch Mitchell and Eddie Kramer did a pretty good job of assembling an album from finished and unfinished material. However, Jimi had always planned a double album, usually known as 'First Rays of the New Rising Sun', which never received a final track layout. The Hendrix Estate CD of the same name features all the tracks on Cry of Love, plus several more from other posthumous Hendrix LPs.

Whatever, this has some great songs on it, such as Freedom, Drifting, Ezy Rider, Belly Button Window and In From the Storm; a joke (Astro Man); and a good song which doesn't really fit in (My Friend, a 1968 out-take). It's a good listen.

This CD is now out of print, but if you find it, make sure you get the second issue as the first CD version had poor sound compared to the LP. The second issue, on Reprise, has "RE-1" etched into the CD to show that it's been remastered.

Post Script: In mid 2014, Experience Hendrix announced that this album, along with its successor, Rainbow Bridge, will be re-released. I have not listened to either, but note that all the tracks for Cry of Love are already available on First Rays of the New Rising Sun, and Rainbow Bridge can be easily assembled by anyone with an iPod and the recent official releases! The original LPs, released in 1971 and 1972 respectively, were popular but unless there is something special about the new releases, why buy the tracks yet again?

5.0 out of 5 stars An old, old favourite. 21 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this on vinyl when CDs were just a gleam in some bright spark's eye. Though I've got just about all the tracks on various other CD compilations it is truly refreshing to hear them in the original order. There does seem to be a little diminution of quality to the sound, but it still takes me back to my years as a much younger hippy blasting this out on my headphones in my bedroom when I still lived at home with my parents. And the original cover artwork is still fantastic.
