The Jimi Hendrix Experience: BBC Sessions

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
These are the recordings that Jimi Hendrix made for BBC radio in the late '60s. As such, they're loose, informal, and off-the-top-of-his-head improvisational fun. These versions of the hits "Foxey Lady," "Fire," two versions of "Purple Haze," and "Hey Joe" stay surprisingly close to the studio versions, but the tone of Hendrix's guitar on these is positively blistering and worth the price of admission alone. There's also a lot of blues on this two-disc collection, and Hendrix's versions of "Hoochie Coochie Man" with Alexis Korner on slide guitar, "Catfish Blues," "Killing Floor," and "Hear My Train A-Comin'" find him in excellent form. But perhaps the best example of how ...

But perhaps the best example of how loosely conceived these sessions were are the oddball covers that Hendrix tackles, including Stevie Wonder's "I Was Made to Love Her" featuring Wonder on drums, Dylan's "Can You Please Crawl out Your Window?," The Beatles' "Day Tripper," and, in recognition of his immediate competition, Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love." No lo-fi bootleg tapes here everything's from the original masters and gone over by Eddie Kramer, the music and sound are class-A all the way, making a worthwhile addition to anyone's Hendrix collection.

    Hendrix Rules!

    An excellent compilation featuring many BBC sessions where the band plays tightly. Their cover of Bob Dylan's "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window" is really cool. A must buy for Hendrix's fans!

    Absolutely Essential for your Jimi Hendrix Library

    I'm quite surprised that no-body has ever written a review for this Experience Jem! (I say I feel actually quite honored to be the first one to do so) I would absolutely recommend this double CD as essential listening to any and every Hendrix Fan. Not so much for people just trying to get into Hendrix but more so for fans that have already listened to at least some live Experience recordings. These performances were actually recorded before the excessive pressures of extended touring, managerial extortion and political manipulations etc. took its toll on the Experience and most especially JIMI. You will find that in these recordings they sound their freshest, tightest (guitars and grooves), and loosest (Mitch's drum playing) EVER in a live setting with the exception of course of their Monterey POP Festival performances!!! You should most especially listen to Jimi's improv's which are scattered all over in the song in this CD! Definitely a must buy!!!
