After the disorganised and often unlistenable Alan Douglas-produced reissues in the 1970s and '80s, MCA has been releasing the vast Hendrix archives in an intelligent and methodical manner. Blues is a perfect example, making the case that--on top of everything else--Jimi Hendrix was one fine blues guitarist. Combining the fluid lines of B.B. King with the spikiness of Hubert Sumlin and the crying tone of Elmore James with his usual synapse-frying intensity, Hendrix manages to both honour the music tradition while remaining uniquely himself. These studio outtakes and warm-ups (plus one previously released track, the magnificent "Hear My Train a Comin'") include a playful "Mannish Boy", the slow burn of "Once I Had A Woman" and a metallic "Bleeding Heart". --Steven Mirkin

One of the best things about the blues is the fact that it provides such a good framework for its practitioners to develop their own styles and sounds, each making their own unique contribution to the genre. Well, Jimi fits seemlessly into this tradition. Indeed, Jimi's contribution could be considered as particularly interesting - on one hand, he is entirely steeped in traditional blues, while on the other hand, he personifies his own generation, his howling screeching wailing guitar (plus sustain and feedback off his speakers) being the very embodiment of the psychedelic experience.
Furthermore, Jimi is capable, in my opinion, of communicating deeper and more intense emotion in both his guitar and voice than almost any other musician, which, alongside his technical virtuosity, is quite simply the perfect combination for crying the blues.
As for this CD, its definitely a mixed bag - ranging from those that originated as warm-ups, jams and impromptu performances, to some old favourites, to some gems that would have been worthy of general release in their own right. While some of the content is quite 'dry', others (like Mannish Boy, Voodoo Chile Blues, Once I Had A Woman and both versions of Hear My Train) are superb and there is even one track that I consider to be a genuine masterpiece! Born Under A Bad Sign!!Read more ›
Is it perfect?
It is essential?
It depends how much you like Jimi/blues/etc.
Is it great?
It has a lot of greatness. :)
'Born under a bad sign', 'Red house' and 'Catfish Blues' epitomise and highlight his raw Blues style.
This excellent CD contains 11 blues performances recorded between December 1966 & May 1970 with Hendrix(guitar, vocals); Billy Cox, Noel Redding, Jack Casady(bass); Buddy Miles, Mitch Mitchell(drums); Steve Winwood, Lee Michaels(organ); Sharon Layne(piano) & Unknown(harmonica).
There are fine versions of 'Born Under A Bad Sign', Robert Petway's 'Catfish Blues', Muddy Waters' 'Mannish Boy' and two versions(acoustic & electric) of Hendrix's 'Hear My Train A Comin''.
The music is heartfelt and stripped down and this 72-minute CD demonstrates what a fine blues guitarist Hendrix was.
