5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant guitar playing, 4 Jan 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Band of Gypsys (Audio CD)
In this version of the Band of Gypsies Hendrix returned to the guitar, base drums trio format but with Buddy Miles and Billy Cox in place of the Experience players. Gone also was much of the extravagent feedback and wild sounds, and in its place is cleaner guitar sound with vituoso playing, and effects used in a more restrained manner. The first side has two long tracks, and the latter is a version of Machine gun that other guitarists have called the greatest playing ever heard. The second side is four more upbeat tracks. It is unlike his other studio and live albums in sound and with a funkier sound. Well worth getting. I've loads of Hnedrix albums and after Electric Ladyland this is my favorite
