The two disc BBC Sessions is a really good collection.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Electric Ladyland is hands down his best. Why? Because it has a song on it called "1983... A Merman I Should Turn To Be".

It's amazing.

Not to mention vodoo child...

All Hendrix albums are beautiful. My personal favorite is probably Are You Experienced, but it's a tough call. They're all so good...

Seriously, pick ANY Hendrix album. You CANNOT go wrong with Jimi Hendrix!!

edit: yeah, Revelation, "1983... A Merman I Should Turn To Be" is glorious.

Took the words out of my mouth, best song EVER!!!


About your question dblaney18, "Are you experienced" was one of the most revolutionary albums rock music has ever seen. From the start to finish it created incredible amounts of new sounds and guitar techniques never heard of before, while keeping a good standard song-wise. It's his rockiest work, and probably the easier to listen to.

If you want it for a party, this is your best bet.



"Axis:bold as love" is a little more mellow, showing better his songwriting skills and taking a more mature stance. The album is about love, in it's many ways. It is prominently a ballads album with such beautiful songs as "little wing" and "castles made of sand", IMHO Jimi's best lyrical work.

The song that gives the album its title is without a doubt one of the bravest ballads musically speaking I've heard to this date, and his use of colors to explain emotions is beautiful and gives it a psychedelic touch.
A nice election for a night with your girl or to relax smoking a joint and reading.


"Electric ladyland" What can I say about this album. It is IMO the greatest achievement in music of the last century, and my personal favorite of all times. The sounds Jimi achieved in this one hasn't been achieved by anyone else. THIS is the definition of psychedelic music.

But not only did jimi get the sounds of an acid trip right, he also composed some of the most amazing soulful songs, from "voodoo chile" a drunken, late night-ish spacial blues with the collaboration of Jack cassidy and Steve winwood, to "All along the watch tower" (even tho composed by Bob Dylan, it's considered by most to be Jimi's performing masterpiece), and the enormous "1983, a merman I should turn to be" (a song which takes a full side of the original four sides LP, and which I find one of the musical masterpieces of all times as far as I'm concerned) Jimi shows an amazing contrast in sounds while filling every second in the album with masterful guitar playing, songwriting and carefully chosen emotions.

Truly worth it for every situation, but specially for tripping. A trip without 1983 is not a trip :grin: I seriously have had orgasms with that song on 2gr of mushies.



If I had to choose only one album to hear for the rest of my life, it would be Electric ladyland only for 1983, with Live at pompeii by Pink floyd in second place, then "The dark side of the moon" and then "axis bold as love"

I hope this wasn't too much of a reading, but I LOVE Jimi :grin:

Peace and happiness  :heart: :mushroom2:

goddamn, I love Hendrix - he's my favorite performer/artist from the psychedelic-era. I cannot image what he would have accomplished if he lived longer. He was possessed - he was a force - the music just came right through him.

I'm glad I was of any help :smile: I just love the guy.

Oh, I forgot about "Band of gypsies" but it's not that interesting. The highlight is "Machine gun" and well... you have to hear it for yourself to believe it.
There is no guitar, no amps... that was Jimi's soul in sounds. Just amazing, I just can't explain it. I recommend hearing with headphones, alone, and in darkness. Pay attetion to the lyrics, it will give you the chills.

Quote:


Machine gun
Tearing my body all apart

Machine gun, yeah
Tearing my body all apart

Evil man make me kill ya
Evil man make you kill me
Evil man make me kill you
Even though we?re only families apart

Well I pick up my axe and fight like a bomber
(you know what I mean)
Hey! and your bullets keep knocking me down

Hey, I pick up my axe and fight like a bomber now
Yeah, but you still blast me down to the ground

The same way you shoot me down, baby
You?ll be going just the same
Three times the pain,
And your own self to blame
Hey, machine gun

I ain?t afraid of your mess no more, babe
I ain?t afraid no more
After a while, your, your cheap talk don?t even cause me pain,
So let your bullets fly like rain

?cause I know all the time you?re wrong baby
And you?ll be going just the same
Yeah, machine gun
Tearing my family apart
Yeah, yeah, alright
Tearing my family apart

Like Revelation said, 1983 A Merman I should turn to be is the most incredible Hendrix song and one of the greatest tripping songs that I have ever heard. I think it is only available on Elictric Lady Land as I have never seen it on any greatest hits or compilation albums.

Listen to that song peaking or any time durring a trip & you shall be in for one hell of a treat!

anybody have some quality rips of hendrix? the mp3s that I have were all encoded poorly (p2p acquired) - I am looking for a LAME VBR encoding - alt preset standard (or higher) or .ogg @ -v5 or so (prefer .ogg over .mp3). Lossless would be even cooler (.flac). If you guys just have cds, I can walk you through it - I can get them from you via instant messenger or soulseek or dc++...or even yousendit.com if you dont want to install anything.

There is a plethora of poorly encoded hendrix on soulseek - it's kinda sad.

If you're looking for some good live Hendrix pick up 'Live At the Filmore East' and 'Band of Gypsy's' (both from the same series of concerts).  Other than that you can't go wrong with 'First Rays of the New Rising Sun', 'South Saturn Delta' or 'Axis Bold as Love' (probably my personal favorite).  'Morning Symphony Ideas' really kicks ass as well, if you like unpolished studio work that illustrates his song writing technique.  And don't forget the boxset, that is definitely worth picking up too(Slow Blues anyone?).

Shit, just do yourself a favor and get them all:grin:
