Just found out that this 2 LP set is available right here in
downtown Toronto for $14.13...TAX IN! What a deal! Only 5000
copies pressed according to the Amazon product information...
Seems like collector material to me. The CD/DVD combo is the
same price and I bought that today. I remember the "Cry of Love"
album from 1970 and all of the cuts from that disc are here. Great!
If you have the previous Hendrix albums then this should round out
your collection. This is worth it....all the way!

I really like this album, i've gone through two copies of it already. I am surprised at all the Hendrix people I meet who havent heard of this album or even listened to it. I use to like listening to this CD as wake up music. Just get it allready !!!

FIVE STARS

I was already aware of some of the songs on the album such as Dolly Dagger and Freedom from them being on other Greatest Hits albums. The album is very solid, as you can tell Jimi was maturing as a musician and heading into the right direction with Mitch and his old buddy on bass, Billy Cox. This is an album you should include as part of your Hendrix collection because it can be credited as being his fourth studio album, even though the "Experience" name had been dropped. They are essentially still the Experience just minus Noel but the sound is awesome and you should enjoy it.

The 5 stars I've given to this disc must be understood in context. These are not the same kind of 5 stars I gave to Are You Experienced. Then again, Jimi was alive and involved in the mixing and production of AYE and he wasn't for First Rays. As a long time Hendrix devotee, I knew he'd considered naming his next LP with this disc's title. I knew all about what was going on in his life at the time he died and how he wanted his music to evolve. The reason this disc warrants 5 stars is because the people involved in bringing this project to completion did the best they could to make Jimi's vision a reality. This is love, pure and simple.
A stripped-down, analytical view of this disc, song by song may not arrive at the conclusion above. Clearly, the studio work was not finished on many of these songs. The story of the making of these songs is a tragic tale. Jimi's last album of original studio recordings had been released in 1968 on Electric Ladyland. Since that LP, a compilation entitled Smash Hits had been released, as had Band of Gypsys, a live recording of new tunes as part of a legal settlement with one of Jimi's former business partners. Band of Gypsys, although excellent music in my opinion, was not what the majority of the record-buying public wanted to hear from Jimi. They wanted Purple Haze II, or something similarly familiar and comfortably psychedelically rocking. But Jimi had been around that block too many times and was in need of change. First Rays was to be the answer as he saw it.
Now, don't get me wrong here - I love this music. But not all of it was finished to Jimi's normal standard. He certainly planned to get it done and was considering a change of management and producers as solutions to get past the barriers he saw in his way.

New stuff, new sound, always Jimi. Great groove, I personally prefer Valleys of Neptune, but this one is very good too.

First Rays Of The New Rising Sun was an uncomplete album intended to be a double lp. Many of the songs on the album were scattered over the years on different albums from Rainbow Bridge, War Hero's, and The Cry Of Love. This album really proves how far a genius like Jimi Hendrix could go with his music. In the process of the album their were many different technique's involved. Jimi Hendrix was at the peek of his career he was also very drained out from his 1970 American tour. Jimi Hendrix played over dozens of area's and festivals from Atlantic Pop, to The Isle Of Wight. On the side he was working on the album First Rays Of The New Rising Sun.
Unfortunately Jimi Hendrix died in the process of the album. Some 20+ years latter Al Hendrix ( Jimi's father ) bought the rights back to his music and named his company Experience Hendrix. That same company would release First Rays Of The New Rising Sun in full format with engineer Eddie Kramer. This album remains one of my very favorite albums as others just cant compare to the genius Jimi Hendrix really was. Highly Recomened!

First let me say that this is definitely Jimi Hendrix's lost and unfinished masterpiece. Prior to his untimely death, he had been recording tracks for this album, that's the purpose of this compilation, to fulfill Jimi's visions for this masterpiece.
This magnificent starts out with "Freedom" a hooky guitar riff and fun chorus will make you come back for more listens. 10/10
Then is "Izabella" fun song for it's playful and catchy lyrics. Fun guitasr riff too. 10/10
Next is "Night Bird Flying" this song is so great and quite different from other songs, cool riffs, and one of my favorites from this album. 10/10
Next "Angel" is a matured ballad for Jimi, great melody and emotional. 10/10
"Room Full of Mirrors" is next, it's a great mix of blues, funk, and rock. Great Song, but it's succeeded by the next 2 tracks 9.5/10
"Dolly Dagger" is next an addictive guitar riff and fun lyrics never lets this song get old. 10/10
Next is "Ezy Ryder" a cool groove, fun lyrics, and an infectious guitar riff make this song my favorite on the album. And the chorus of lead guitars is nothing less than brilliant. 10/10
"Drifting" is the next song, and it doesn't have many lyrics but the ending instrumental part is very enjoyable. 9.5/10
Then is the song "Beginnings" aka "Jam Back At The House" is an excellent instrumental, one of my favorites, and the riffs are excellent as well, accompanied by a steady drumbeat. 10/10
"My Friend" is next, it's a mellow and enjoyable song with lyrics I can't get enough of. 10/10
Next is "Stepping Stone" there are some great solos played by Jimi on this track and pretty upbeat tempo as well. Great song to listen to.
