5.0 out of 5 stars Ha!, 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shaking Funk: Live [VINYL] (Vinyl)
If you can find this LP get it! Do not hesitate as it is rare. JH MM & BC NY Pop Festival july 17 1970. Why this is not on cd beats me as there are many Hendrix fans that would go and get it but vinyl sounds so much better so if you are reading this, and no longer have a record player, get the LP and then get a record player. To pick out just one track - Red House, if you don't have this rendition you need it the rest of the album is also just brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!!, 9 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Spectrum Road [VINYL] (Vinyl)
What a great record and it needs to be played loud - great band I love Jack Bruce's playing and singing and am constantly astonished by Cindy Blackman's drumming (I think she is so talented, wow! Kicks ass!). This is the best Vernon Reid playing I have experienced and John Medeski is also at his very best. What more to say? Get it? Yes get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 16 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Anthem Of The Sun (Vinyl)
This album is amazing - right? RIGHT it is amazing but it is an LP and that's it for the Other One - Why is this so expensive? It is an amazing LP so if it is "rare" then please Grateful Dead re-release it on vinyl at a good price. This LP is amazing, it is brilliant music and it is so much better experiencing it on vinyl than CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars more please, 14 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars fanastico, 17 Sept. 2008
This review is from: A Fool Such As I (Audio CD)
This is a great Dylan album - ok - it came out at a time of changing record companies - this is a great fun Dylan album with some of the most fantastic arrangements and the best ever piano lick, on Spanish is...
I got the vinyl when it was released and the cd when I discovered it on sale in Germany. Look, if you like Dylan get this it is great and funny.
