5 stars If you are any sort of musicologist, or rock historian, then you must have this album. Nearly all of the electric guitar techniques that you might hear on any rock album made since 1967 were initiated by Jimi Hendrix. Sure, after over forty years of great guitarists building on his techniques, some of this is not as impressive to jaded ears, but this was where it started.

Bassist Noel Redding and drummer Mitch Mitchell, who perform well on this album, have the good sense to lay down some nice rhythm tracks, and mostly stay out of Jimi's way.

And note that eight out of the eleven tracks on this album have become classics, and still get plenty of airplay.

Evolver | 5/5 |
