5 stars Most know that this is the single greatest guitar album in the history of Rock, and that it was a "debut" of a new artist just boggles the mind. Can you imagine what guitar aficionados thought when they heard this for the first time? There's been nothing like it before.

Have you ever read the notes on the back of the album? They're cheesy as heck, trying to shoot way over the top and build and add to the hype surrounding the young guitarist. What just slays me is ultimately how "under" the cheap promo words really were. Hendrix went on to be the most profound guitarist of the Rock era. They continue to crank out unreleased compilations and albums that were never meant to be released. Just think of all the music we lost that he never recorded? There were significant signs that he was moving in a more fusion and progressive direction too. "sigh"
