JIMI HENDRIX - West Coast Seattle Boy: The Jimi Hendrix Anthology (2010)
This collection presents, for the first time, the most sought after of Jimi’s pre-Experience recordings as a sideman for such rhythm & blues stars as The Isley Brothers, Don Covay, Little Richard and others. All of the misinformation and fake purported to feature Hendrix are swept aside for fans.The remaining three discs feature previously unreleased and commercially unavailable studio recordings from every chapter of his career and live recordings with the Experience and Band Of Gypsys spanning 1967 through 1970. The studio recordings include never before released (or even bootlegged) alternate versions of such classic fare as “Are You Experienced,” “Fire,” “May This Be Love,” “Love Or Confusion” and many more. In addition, new songs such as “Hear My Freedom,” “Hound Dog Blues” and “Lonely Avenue” make their debut as part of this special collection. To provide further insight and understanding into Hendrix’s creative development, WCSB presents acoustic and electric home recordings of Electric Ladyland signature songs such as “Long Hot Summer Night,” “1983 (A Merman I Shall Turn To Be),” as well as “My Friend” and “Angel” later featured as part of First Rays Of The New Rising Sun. WCSB also features another major revelation, an electric demo version of Bob Dylan’s “Tears Of Rage.” WCSB also features a previously unreleased version of “Everlasting First,” Jimi’s 1970 celebrated collaboration with Arthur Lee & Love, an unheard 1967 studio session with Traffic’s Dave Mason as well as an expanded presentation of Jimi’s legendary session with jazz organist Larry Young. Four hours of rare and previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix.
