Product Description

Product Description

Even if you own Jimi's Radio One CD (and what a CD it is!), you still only have a little more than half of the performances contained on this collection of the Experience's complete BBC recordings. In fact, there are no less than 13 unreleased tracks on this two-CD, 30-track set, including versions of Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window; Little Miss Lover; Love or Confusion; Jammin' and I Was Made to Love Her with Stevie Wonder(!); Foxy Lady; Hey Joe (twice); Manic Depression; Driving South; Hear My Train A-Comin'; Voodoo Child (Slight Return) , and Sunshine of Your Love . Available on double-CD or cassette, or limited-edition vinyl.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience only recorded for the BBC over a two-year period, and from the tracks assembled on this two-disc set, it sounds like their on-air appearances were a constant struggle between what the Beeb wanted--for them to play their songs and be done--and what Jimi wanted, which was to mess with whatever it was the Beeb wanted. Sometimes, that took the form of jamming (as on two tracks with Stevie Wonder improbably playing drums); sometimes, it was peculiar covers (like "Day Tripper" and "Sunshine of Your Love"). Jimi's playing is, of course, impeccable, though the sonics of the set leave something to be desired, and it gets a bit repetitive--three versions of "Hey Joe"? --Douglas Wolk

This record is NOT a concert and is not really live. There are no new songs written by jimi inside this record. The songs were quickly produced and aired, though they are semi live. I forget the exact reason why it was done-- i think it had to with English law stating the limit of the amount of times a certain song could be aired by a single channel (they made cheap different recordings to air); im not totally sure. There are a couple exceptions i think, such as Hey Joe and Sunshine of your love, which were live broadcasts on the Lulu show, a complete (humorous) disaster as you will see by buying the record. A must for any hendrix lover, like myself. I recommend first getting all his "regular" records, that is, INCLUDING First Rays of the New Rising Sun. The record provides insight into Hendrix and what made him so great. It's cool hearing different versions of the same song you have heard before, especially when hendrix's the one doing it. Oviously, being a guitar player will increase your satisfaction with these BBC cessions.

This is an interesting view into the archives of Experience Hendrix and/or the BBC. I doubt that when the BBC instigated "needle time" that they would end up with a plethora of live recordings by some of the greatest musicians to adjust the volume on an amp. The set goes through small sets on different shows. My personal favorite being the Christmas Eve broadcast of "Hear My Train A Comin'","Raidio One","Wait Until Tomorrow","Day Tripper"
and"Spanish Castle Magic". This set has so many high points that the whole set is good, the most amusing being Jimi's crazed preformance on the show "A Happening For Lulu"(tracks 15-19 on
disc one). Some highlights of this set are: "Can You Pleas Come Crawl Out Your Window?" a Dylan tune, Lennon/McCartney's "Day Tripper" a version of "Wait Until Tommorrow" that I prefer to the
original. Jimi's blues jam "Driving South", powerful electrical renditions of "Hey Joe", and a quick and very powerful tour de force in Cream's "Sunshine Of Your Love". Also interesting are the short interviews and comments by hosts between songs.
An overall score by Experience Hendrix.

A die-hard Hendrix fan, I had to buy this album because let's face it - he had such a short career that anything new that is at all good is a bonus. This album delivers the goods. There are several versions of the same songs, giving a better-rounded view of his thinking and ideas, especially when compared to the versions on the released albums. Also included are some lead-in announcements and short interviews by totally straight-laced-sounding BBC chaps and gals that sound retro and enthusiastic next to Jimi's laid-back responses.
The first CD has the more polished recordings and is a great example of Jimi's singularly pure, unworldly music. With such superb takes of the gamut of his repertoire, it's like having Electric-Ladyland-quality on every song. The second CD has a lot of sloppy takes and frankly bad lyrics, singing and playing (no wonder they weren't released!) As a musician, though, I found it inspiring to hear that it didn't always work perfectly, to hear him and the others working it out. There are more of the BBC voice-overs on the second CD to make up for the bad takes though. It's a great slice of history, and it's remarkable they were willing to release it. I recommend this to anyone who loves that time in music, who loves Hendrix, who plays in any kind of band, or who just loves the guitar.

I'm sick of being jerked around because of my affection for classic rock. Most wouldn't care, but when people relaize I'm fourteen and my three favourite bands are Pink Floyd Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix, they act like I'm an invalid. I'm not a reject, people, I just understand music.
When you play the guitar four two years as I now have been, you pick up some of the instrument's heritage. While some are content to detune their guitar to Drop Z and pick away one string patterns, I decided to delve deeper into the realm of the electric guitar.
When someone associates a name with the guitar, more often than not it's one of two people: Jimmy Page or Jimi Hendrix. Since this is a review for BBC Sessions, I'll stick to him.
Jimi Hendrix remains the most influential electric guitarist of the twentieth century. If you listen to any rock piece, you will undoubtedly hear the strains of the many innovations of Jimi Hendrix. From the wah to the Octaver, Jimi was a master of innovation, and with BBC Sessions, this fact is just exemplified further. Being too young to have ever heard the original Jimi Hendrix Radio One disc, this review is more from the eyes of a person who knew not what had happened during this time.
Although the last official Hendrix album I bought, it is undoubtedly one of the two best post-humous releases from Experience Hendrix/MCA (The other being First Rays Of The New Rising Sun).
Although many do have Radio One, or various bootlegs, that doesn't mean you still shouldn't purchase this album. The sound quality is much improved, and each piece has been remastered excellently by (who else?) Eddie Kramer. The first disc starts off in a blues rock vein, and pretty much stays that way to the final track of the first disc. Foxey Lady is better than the AYE?
