Yes, this is a fine collection of live tracks, with a TOWERING version of "Red House", a stunning "Spanish Castle Magic" (added for this release), and the best "Johnny B Goode" Jimi ever played (from the Berkeley Community Theatre).
As a REISSUE, however, I marvel at the weird logic in play here, centering around why the powers that be substituted an INFERIOR version of Little Wing? If you're going to reissue "Hendrix in the West," AT LEAST include the tracks on the original album!!!
It doesn't matter that the original album's "Little Wing" came from the Royal Albert Hall (not exactly "the West" as we think of it). What matters is that THAT version is a) the best live rendition Jimi ever did (his most lyrical playing, which surpasses even the original studio cut), and b) THAT was the one on the original album. And that version is ONE of the reasons why the original "Hendrix in the West" is so special.
On behalf of people who value the long out of print original LP and CD (in sufficient numbers that it was obviously thought to be worth reissuing), or people who want to HEAR the original because they can't find or afford the originals, I'm stupefied when a substitution is made like this. (By the way, they also rearranged the track order. Note to reissuers: including the ORIGINAL tracks used, AND the order in which they were originally presented, actually matters. Each contributes towards shaping the listeners' experience with, and perception, of the work).
In the future, please: just create a new compilation using some other theme or concept. The Hendrix Estate is doing a swell job with that. And I'll buy it.
But DO NOT present an out of print title like this without, AT A MINIMUM, including ALL of the tracks that make the record worth reissuing in the first place. (P.S., bonus tracks are fine, you can always program around them if they upset the flow).
