Customer Review

on 12 March 2010
This is one of the four 'new' Sony Legacy versions of Jimi Hendrix albums.

Content-wise, the CD is exactly the same as the previous CD issue and of course that's a good thing. Track listing, sound and design are also identical.

The booklet is exactly the same too - so what's the point of buying this package if you already have the previous issue (released in 1999, I think).

Well, there's a short DVD with interviews with Eddie Kramer about four of the tracks - and that's it. An insert with the CD suggests that you can get 'bonus content' by putting the DVD in your PC, but it just takes you to the website, which you can get for free anyway.

I would guess that the same comments will apply to Sony's other re-issues, namely the first three studio albums and Band of Gypsys.

So, if you don't have these essential albums, go for it, but don't bother if you have the old editions.
