November 28

Seems like a good day for a little Jimi Hendrix:

This is the 1980 German reissue on Polydor of their 11 Jimi Hendrix albums plus a bonus 12 inch single of Hey Joe that was apparently never released in Germany.

This was another record store trade in success story. The box came in to the record store and seemed like the records had barely if ever been played. I was able to trade half a dozen yard sale finds and some record store credit for the set.

The first four I already owned, but the used copies I have are a little rough for playing. The remainder of the posthumous releases send me a mix of studio outtakes and live recordings.

There are some real gems in here and surprisingly some things I never heard before that would sound up to date on any Pearl Jam or Black Crows record.
