Upon listening to this 2010 remastered re-release of the Band of Gypsys on headphones compared with the 1994 release, those in charge clearly cleaned up the sound. The audio is crisp and the live element (a.k.a. the crowd and reverb) is present throughout the songs, which is unfortunately lacking in many live albums. However, it is present here and that is what counts for the moment. So, if you do not own this album yet and dig it as you should, buy this remaster. For those that already own it, if you are a collector of re-releases, then do so, but there are no bonus features like the accompanying DVDs in the other re-releases here. That is the one letdown considering there is B&W footage of some of the performances from this concert series out there. New liner notes and photos are about all that is 'extra,' but everyone knows these liner notes are often a bit too sugary and long-winded. Indeed, this album is a gem, aside from the fact that it is Hendrix, because it blends the R&B of Buddy Miles' groove with the soaring rock 'n' roll bluesy feel of Hendrix's playing, not to mention Cox's bass pleasantly bouncing along for the ride.
