Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues: Jimi Hendrix

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
If you don’t hear the blues influence in Jimi Hendrix’s music, you’d better get your ears checked. No rock icon symbolizes how deeply blues has affected rock than this brilliant guitarist, whose three short years in the spotlight permanently changed the face of popular music. While no player ever utilized the technological innovations of electric instrumentation quite like Hendrix, the expressive power of his inimitable sound owes everything to good, old-fashioned blues. For proof, hear any of these lapel-grabbing performances, each mating elemental tradition with startling innovation. Hendrix was a musical sponge, and by the time he began recording in 1966 he had ...

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
If you don’t hear the blues influence in Jimi Hendrix’s music, you’d better get your ears checked. No rock icon symbolizes how deeply blues has affected rock than this brilliant guitarist, whose three short years in the spotlight permanently changed the face of popular music. While no player ever utilized the technological innovations of electric instrumentation quite like Hendrix, the expressive power of his inimitable sound owes everything to good, old-fashioned blues. For proof, hear any of these lapel-grabbing performances, each mating elemental tradition with startling innovation. Hendrix was a musical sponge, and by the time he began recording in 1966 he had thoroughly absorbed the teachings of the blues through recordings and continual on-the-road experience. This education is part and parcel of such classic performances as "Red House,” “Voodoo Chile,” and “Hear My Train A’ Coming” -- all drip with the open emotions of the blues, as well as reconfigured guitar licks and vocal inflections that hint at the genre’s very beginnings. As a special treat, two previously unreleased tracks, “Georgia Blues” and “Blue Window,” are included.
All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
As part of the numerous compilations issued in conjunction with the major television documentary series The Blues, this is a collection of blues-oriented Hendrix recordings. A couple of considerations conspire to make this one of Hendrix's less essential releases. First, the blues were just a part of Hendrix's musical mix, though an important one. Second, there was a previous compilation of Hendrix's blues-oriented work in 1994, simply titled Blues. There's little repetition between Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues and Blues, though, and it works as a decent grouping of some of his bluesiest recordings for those listeners who want to plunge especially deeply into one facet of his repertoire. "Red House" and "Voodoo Chile" are by far the most celebrated tracks here, but the accent is on lesser-heard performances that first came out on other archival compilations. In fact, the fine Earl King cover "Come On Let the Good Times Roll" from Electric Ladyland is the only other song that came out in Hendrix's lifetime. The other selections vary from inspired "Hear My Train a Comin'," recorded in early 1969 with the original Jimi Hendrix Experience lineup, and a solo "Midnight Lightning" to rather routine jams, though Hendrix's imaginative virtuosity and affinity for the blues is usually evident. This being a posthumous Hendrix release, it couldn't be complete without a couple of previously unissued tracks to tempt the completists, though these aren't too exciting. Those are the 1969 outtakes "Georgia Blues," on which Hendrix is actually more like a backing musician for Lonnie Youngblood who takes lead vocals, and "Blue Window," a nearly 13-minute outing that gives vent to his jazzier tendencies, the arrangement also featuring organ, three saxophones, and two trumpets. The liner notes about Jimi's blues record collecting habits by mid-'60s girlfriend Faye Pridgon, by the way, are pretty cool.
