52:00 minute audio of album, or play individual tracks on NPR, (National Public Radio) website...

First Listen: Jimi Hendrix, 'People, Hell And Angels'

Given that Jimi Hendrix has been dead for more than four decades, the visionary guitarist has remained awfully prolific: He left behind a formidable tape library, full of alternate takes, discarded ideas and collaborations of varying quality, and those materials have been mined in the making of far more albums and compilations than he churned out during his 27 years. That one such collection would produce a chart-topping single in 2013 is a testament to Hendrix's enduring appeal, not to mention...

[npr.org...]

...bolding added. Jimi topping the charts in 2013!

Well, it's not like he has a whole lot of competition. She said, dating herself.

Yet another collection of rehearsals and alternate takes.

I'd much rather see him play live again (I was 14 last time).

I wouldn't sit in a muddy field full of hippies for anyone else.

Stevie Ray Vaughn was the closest I ever saw -- then he up and died too. (Note to musicians: keep away from small aircraft -- advice that would have kept Vaughn, as well as Richie Valens, Buddy Holly, John Denver, Jim Croce and many others alive).

I'm a big fan of Jimi Hendrix (I actually met him one night in Middle Earth, Covent Garden, in the late 60s, and chatted for half hour or so, I was more out there than him, at the time....LOL. What a nice guy he was!) and I'm not impressed with this rehash.....:
I far prefer to hear this:
[last.fm...]

Just Jimi and his ideas for songs that later he put together.

Oh, and good as SRV was, much of his rating comes from replaying a lot of Jimi stuff and style. What exactly was Stevie's style?

Sorry about that, just the way I see it, of course!

I'm with ya on that, Lucy. Jimi literally turned the guitar on it's head....LOL.
Opening the door for many other original guitarists to experiment and improvise.
Another of my favourite guitarists, Jeff Beck was grateful to Jimi for just that. Now that's another original!
I guess I'm just as dated as you, Lucy....so be it, I'm happy with that! :)

Not much originality around today....:(

:: idly twiddling thumbs ::

Hint. You've never heard of him.

I looked it up. He did some session work and whatnot, but basically has no existence except as the answer to a trivia question. It was the mention of Jeff Beck that reminded me.

Pop Quiz Answer:

1. Eric Clapton
2. Jeff Beck
3. Jimmy Page

That being the order in which they served as lead guitarist for The Yardbirds.

I didn't look it up, I saw Eric with The Yardbirds in 1964.

Supporting The Beatles.

Oh, you mean Top Topham.

Depends where you live - I last saw him play in the late 1990s.

... providing a nifty way to get this thread back on topic, since we can now all be reminded of when Hendrix opened for the Monkees.
