    I recently bought Electric Ladyland on vinyl and it is THE best Hendrix album out there. The man was a genious.

    Eric Clapton
    Jimmy Page
    Stevie Ray Vaughn

    To name a few. All hail Jimi Hendrix. There will never be anyone quite like him again.

    Don't forget Skydog, Duane Allman.

    Yes! I was waiting for someone to mention him. Read Duane's biography "Skydog". What a life, cut short at 24. Master of the slide.

    When I heard Live At Filmore East, I was blown away by it. I have a few books to read first: currently reading the John Lennon bio, then The Proud Highway (Hunter Thompson), then People's History..., but I will definitely read "Skydog". I got that for my cousin for Christmas.

    I knew I was going to forget someone. :oops:

  • I just picked up Live at Berkeley 1970. Solid show. Not like Atlanta or Monterrey Pop, but fantastic nonetheless. There was nothing that this guy ever produced that was sub-par.

    If you haven't, check out Blue Wild Angel: Live at the Isle of Wight 1970. Crazy versions of Machine Gun and Red House.

    I really think Mike should cover a little bit of Machine Gun or Hear My Train A Comin'. He would tear the roof of arena's and wherever they play.

    Hmm, and what about outdoor venues? :lol: Seriously though, great idea; I love Machine Gun and I'm sure Mike would do Jimi justice on it.

    Haha I referenced outdoor venus as "and wherever they play" but he would tear down the walls of outdoor arenas.

    Electric Ladyland is the Greatest album of all time. Even better than Riot Act! :lol:

    1983 / Moon turn the tides combo is fucking amazing.

    Anyone buying the re-releases on March 9? The first 3 albums and First Rays of the New Rising Sun are being re-issued as a CD/DVD set and 180gram vinyl. Valleys of Neptune will be released for the first time ever in the same formats. Thinking I will pick these up.

    I will be doing that also. I'll be in LA that week for spring break so I'm wondering if I should buy them there or after when I return home? They'll be awesome either way.

  • I just listened to a nice mix of Jimi's stuff while hitting golf balls at the range. Great for staying in the zone and keeping the blood flowing, especially in 40 degree weather!
