5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of Nine From The Universe outtakes., 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MESSAGE FROM NINE TO THE UNIVERSE (Audio CD)
Back 30 years ago, Alan Douglas produced an LP called "Nine From The Universe", it has been out of print for almost that long. It was an interesting LP for a Hendrix fan, showing a slightly jazzier freeform side of Jimi. I had found this on its' cassette tape release, and spent the summer of 1984 as a U.S. Army Private listening to it on headphones while I cut grass and trimmed hedges 8 hours a day... so at one point I knew this album *real* well.

This 2 CD Set contains the (mostly) complete studio takes from which Douglas made his edits. Some tracks benefit from the extended releases, while others show why Douglas was actually more judicious in his editing of these tapes than many people believed.

Highly recommened to Hendrix cognoscenti, but not a CD for beginning Hendrix fans, who should go to Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold As Love, Electric Ladyland, and Smash Hits first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hendrix is god, 13 Mar. 2012
This review is from: MESSAGE FROM NINE TO THE UNIVERSE (Audio CD)
This cd is a collection of jams that show Jimi weaving his way through a series of songs that were never intended for release. With that being said, it is a fantastic collection to listen to. Jimi free forming through out, just playing effortlessly. Now I am from the school of thought that anything by Jimi, is better than the soulless playing that is out there today. For guitar lovers like me,its fantastic. I would also recommend both of Tommy Bolins "Whips n Roses 1 and 2", for people that enjoy guitar playing without limitations. I have heard many people question Tommys ability due to his limited catalog and drug addiction, but both of these cds show why he was considered a genius.
