This compilation just misses being the perfect single-CD Jimi Hendrix anthology, and it's a crying shame because it comes so close. Its main virtue is that, in contrast to Smash Hits – the only compilation of Hendrix's work approved by the artist – it extends its reach past 1968. The last of the tracks come from the abortive First Rays of the New Rising Sun album, left unfinished at the time of his death, and show off a more R&B and soul-oriented sound than Hendrix was generally known for – and are worth the price of the disc by themselves…

This collection represents the essential items of the Jimi Hendrix catalog. Each selection illustrates Hendrix's uniqueness as both guitarist and composer. In the '60s, he virtually defined rock guitar, remaking history in his own image. His mix of blues, psychedelia and Dylanesque folk-rock made him a rock & roll icon. It's in the surreal balladry of "The Wind Cries Mary". It's in the archetypal hard-rock cadences of "Purple Haze". It's in everything this electric guitar prodigy laid his talented hands on. Those unfamiliar with Hendrix's legacy are fortunate to have EXPERIENCE HENDRIX as a guide.
Incredibly, as Popa chubby has improved over the years on guitar. Already the first notes of the CD show: here a musician has grown together with his guitar, so that you do not know who there plays with whom.On this album, Hendrix is celebrated, what must be also the claim that there are countless cover - versions of his hits, so it must be shown as something "Special".
This works playing chubby, for each track is garnished with guitar solos, which, in particular on the two live - slices, to true orgies degenerate ("Little Wing" or "Hey Joe"!). Since the one or the other sound, which makes but absolutely nothing is times because the intensity, with the chubby Hendrix plays and feels, can simply not always properly articulated.
Widely acclaimed session guitarist Hiram Bullock pays homage to guitar innovator (and obvious influence) Jimi Hendrix on this dynamic live set. Recorded in 2004 in Germany with legendary jazz fusion drummer Billy Cobham and the WDR Big Band on board, Bullock and crew burn through seven Hendrix classics including "Foxy Lady," "Voodoo Child," and "Manic Depression." With Bullock's fiery fret-shredding leading the way, PLAYS THE MUSIC OF JIMI HENDRIX is not only a fitting tribute to the guitar hero, but a muscular, exciting workout in its own right. The only sad thing is that this great guitarist can not even play anymore - RIP. But this album is very great, and a must have for every Jimi fan.
