    This one is a live album recorded at the Isle Of White in 1970. There is also a DVD as well.

    Blue Wild Angel/Live At The Isle of Wight

    Eddie Kramer is one of the producers. I had a Japanese import of this back in the 1980's only it had six songs on it. "All Along The Watch Tower" is one of the highlights.

    There are two versions, one a single disk and the other a double disk set. If your are a guitarist I'd reccomend the double set (ask for it for X-mas).

    Jimi's studio work never did it for me and I could never understand what all the shouting was about until I heard a live recording of the guy and then I got it. This album is a good show case of his playing and his stage performance. Some of the best stuff is his banter with the audience in between songs. He's funny and it's like he's talking to the crowd not at them.

    If you are a guitarist then this album offers a great look into the guys total approach to the instrument. It will give you a yard stick to measure your ability to his. Much has happened in guitar since 1970 but Hendrix still holds his own as a great guitarist. While you can shoot for Vai, Van Halen and Satriani, this recording should give you a base to shoot for. If you can pull off half this stuff you are doing okay in the world.

    You don't know Hendrix until you've heard the guy live. This album is a great place to start. If you are a Hendrix fan then it's a must have.

    Hendrix is the man [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] . I got the video of his woodstock set a few days ago; it's unbelieveable.
