What an album & it'd be a terrific purchase for those fans who don't own it already however, this is a real disappointment for those avid faithful followers.
The big draw for most fans is the new 'mini documentary' that is featured. Whilst Eddie Kramer's breakdown clips are a joy to watch, these are few and far between & are interspersed with more rehashed clips from the 'Classic Albums' documentary that was first transmitted over 12 years ago! As soon as the in-depth features start to get going, it's on to the next track! Even the linear notes are identical to the previous release & as for the online special features.. available NEXT Monday!!
I can't comment on the other 3 albums that have been re-released but if they follow in a similar vein, there really isn't much point for fans that own the previous Experience Hendrix releases to buy these.
For the many, legal rangled years that have passed without seeing any official Jimi Hendrix material I thought this would have been chance to really offer something new to the fans.. a longer & more in depth documentary, bonus alternate recordings & some new linear notes would have made this a worthwhile release.
