Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues Jimi Hendrix. A part of Jimi Hendrix's act was blues. Hendrix always played Red House at a concert or maybe did a slower song called Hear My Train A Comin. Hendrix was devoted to the blues this CD includes great music that has already been released. It seems the worst topic about Experience Hendrix the Hendrix Family Coperation is that they love to re-release songs. An example of this would be Experience The Best Of Jimi Hendrix, Jimi Hendrix Smash Hits, and Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child. All of those CDs are repeated greatest hits why would they re-release the same thing three times? Then when they released this CD half of all the songs were already released. The first track on the CD is Red House which was orginally released on Are You Experienced? The second track Voodoo Chile was orginally released on Electric Ladyland. The third track Come On (Let The Good Times Roll) was also released on Electric Ladyland. Gerogia Blues and Blue Window are the only un-released tracks on this entire CD. Maybe Experience Hendrix just wanted the Hendrix fans to buy this CD for only the unreleased songs. I can understand that theres only some much Hendrix but I also know that Hendrix did hundreds of previously unrelased recordings when he was alive. As a family coperation Experience Hendrix should carry a bigger Hendrix legacy the company tends to release the same thing multiple times. The rest of the songs on this CD are Country Blues, Hear My Train A Comin', It's Too Bad, My Friend, and Midnight Lighting. I did not enjoy this CD because since I am a huge Hendrix fan I listen to Jimi Hendrix every day and when I here the same songs released under a differnt name then its all stuff I already heard.Read more ›

Just got this...the two previously unreleased tracks on this cd are quite nice. i'm surprised that there's material of this quality left unreleased. "blue window" is an extended original blues with nice organ and horns, both of which were rare in Hendrix recordings. it's a long jam that vacillates between sounding impromptu and surprisingly well arranged...clearly everyone was listening very closely to each other and/or it's the final take of many attempts at this song. "Georgia Blues" features very fine traditional blues guitar by Hendrix and a strong vocal by Lonnie Youngblood...surprisingly it stems from 1969 and not from his years of session work prior to starting to sing lead himself.
overall this is a serious, deep, long and slow blues album with an informal feel...6 of the 10 tracks are seven minutes or longer, some of them well over ten minutes long. sound quality is excellent, although slightly rough on "blue window"...
highly recommended!

Experience Hendrix could have at least found some alternative takes or more un-released tracks to put on this CD.
We still have not got "Things I used to do" or "I got 5 Dollars in my pocket" two great Hendrix blues tracks known to be in the archives at Experience Hendrix.
The 2 tracks that are un-released however are are of some intrest and therefore if you are a fan then this CD is a must.
Let's see what is to come.....

Most of this stuff has been released before but it does show another side of Hendrix that he loved the blues and if he had lived longer that would have come out. Best cuts on this cd are It's too bad a loose jam type song and Midnight Lighting a simple demo he recorded in early 1970. He wa s a great guitar player and I wish some cuts from the cd Hendrix: The Blues was on this cd. I give it 3 stars...
