Biography

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. ...

This box set has some real gems, ok it could have been better but disc 1 is fantastic and there is a lot more where that came from - sort out the copyrights! I have an lp of the Icemen? with Jimi playing (one of those mid 70s releases) fantastic, give us more.
Disc 2: 11 to 16 is the best music there, it is, fantastic, here we hear Jimi with his friend Paul relaxed having fun and playing Tears of Rage from Bob Dylan's Basement Tapes - what if? Also the rest of this acoustic set is fantastic I want a box set of this it is non record company fun, it is fun, it is not Jimi being virtuoso but having fun and if you play guitar it is for you. As well as being a homage to Bob Dylan it is a way in to understanding how to play real tunes/songs without the industry. I know there is so much more fantastic Jimi music out there and that the Hendrix estate have the resources to sort out the audio quality and copyrights - so what are you waiting for Experience Hendrix?
I kind of agree that this box set is not the Jimi Hendrix that is for the first listen to Jimi but for those people go and get the first three albums then get the other box set then get this. What would be good is if there is a big box set of early Jimi and a box set of acoustic Jimi and a box set of long jams and what about the Albert Hall movie and soundtrack? Also the gig before at the Albert Hall? There is so much more too, why the separation with Dagger Records?
For me this box set is wonderful listening pleasure and an education so please sort it out and give us more. Jimi Hendrix was the most important and significant artist of the twentieth century.

Inevitably, being a Jimi Hendrix compilation, there is some fantastic music on here. But sadly not very much - the stuff I would want to listen to repeatedly would happily fit on one disc - probably not exactly coinciding with the contents of the single CD version. I like much of the pre-Experience stuff on the first CD - it's great that they've all been released in one place to give a good overview of Hendrix's pre-Experience work as a sideman, though a shame that the best of the Lonnie Youngblood material, including Jimi's first recordings of his own material, couldn't be included due to contractual issues. It's amusing to hear Ronald Isley singing, "all of the lonely people, where do we all come from" on the lovely Have You Ever Been Disappointed - nearly a year before the Beatles recorded Eleanor Rigby, and also amusing to note that the Rolling Stones were, unknowingly, trying to emulate Jimi Hendrix licks in 1965 when they covered Don Covay's Mercy Mercy. Not all of it is great, but the Isley Brothers tracks, especially Move Over And Let Me Dance, show that Hendrix was pretty much already fully formed as a guitarist in 1965, and the Don Covay and Little Richard tunes are also quality; it goes without saying that the vocals by all three of these artists are superb. It's also worth noting that all three Isley Brothers tracks are remixes from the early 1970s made with the specific intention of making Hendrix's contributions more prominent. Using these remixes obviously makes sense here but, not having heard the original mixes of any of them - I imagine Hendrix is to some degree obscured by horns etc. - I can't tell you whether the remixes are as good as the originals in strictly aesthetic terms, or how different they sound.

Then we get to the 1966-70 stuff.

Although not a completest, with about 80 Hendrix CDs, I sure am a fan and have been since he erupted on the world in '67. I was not going to bother with this box, but with the 25% drop just before Christmas, I thought that I would treat myself. So, what have we got?

Well, a lot has been written in the music press about the significance/interest of the first CD with the early Jimi recordings. To be honest, I found them little more than a collection of curios which I doubt will get many airings in my home. Anyone interested in pre-Experience recording would be far better off listening to the complete ppx studio recordingsIMHO where there are some interesting tracks and Jimi does feature on them.

The meaning three CDs contain unreleased and "alternative" versions, some of which are really worthwhile, but anyone new (is there anybody?)or anyone expecting an anthology in the true sense of the word would be disappointed. For example an alternative mix of "Are You Experienced" without the lyrics. Even for the ardent fan who was expecting this box to show Hendrix "at work in the studio", I would suggest that In the Studio Vol.1-10 provides a far greater insight. However, when all is said and done, this box still provides plenty of enjoyment, with high quality mastering, but it is no place to start.

The bonus of a good documentary DVD is a welcome addition, and raises the star rating for me.

The packaging is the modern "fold-out" format, like a double size digipak with a booklet in the middle which contains a slot for the DVD. Whilst better than the old box sets which were simply CD cases housed in a box,it would have been so much better to have gone for 100% cardboard and ditched the plastic altogether.
