Review by ZowieZiggy
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Alan Douglas produced this album in 1994. When one knows that Jimi was so deeply influenced by blues music, it might sound strange that a compilation of blues songs from the master only saw the light in the middle nineties.

Douglas also had a bad reputation in terms of the releases of studio albums; so lots of fans were taken by surprise when they discovered the quality of this material. This record had a very decent career in the US charts (it peaked at spot 45).

This is more than just a compilation since six songs were unreleased at that time. It is a combination of Hendrix songs and several cover ones.

Highlights are many: ''Red House'' (although inferior to any live version) and ''Catfish Blues'' for instance. But one of the most interesting piece here is the mixing of several takes of ''Voodoo Chile''. Not only is the final mixing appropriate but to listen to Steve Winwood on the organ is quite fine as well (he was also playing on the final version available on ''Electric Ladyland''). Another highlight.

Although a cover of a blues legend (Muddy Waters), these mixings which will deliver this version of ''Mannish Boys'' sounds more rock than blues. Again, it is a very good track that denotes from the overall mood of this album.

Some tracks as ''Jelly 292'' could have been avoided and to be honest, I don't find that the acoustic version of ''Hear My Train?'' will be much remembered.

My favourite moment form this release is the live version of ''Hear My Train?''. It was performed at Berkeley during the first of the two concerts Jimi played that night of May, 30 (1970). To my knowledge, this version was officially unreleased so far. It is at times slower and heavier than on other occasions and one can figure out the huge difference between this accomplished version and the one played at Winterland (October 68) which was one of the first version played by The Experience. This is Hendrix at his best. THE highlight.

Overall, this semi-compilation is a valuable item for Hendrix fans. Three stars.

4 stars I like best Jimmi Hendrix songs, but I'm not his hot fan or collector. So, I just have some his albums, without special system of collecting.

I think my opinion could be interesting for many music lovers, who are not a Hendrix maniacs, but are interested in some entrance to his collection. Almost hundreds of different compilations are all around, so it is not easy to choose.

I have just few Hendrix albums, but that one I like most of all of them. Hendrix has many great songs, and many well known songs, but at the same time he has many fillers as well.

So, this album is all strong. But please note - there are compilation of his bluesy songs. I can't say, that all them are blues, more psychedelic compositions with long solos, but on bluesy side. Nothing is boring or repetetive there if you like long jams and bluesy solos.

All connection with progresive rock is mostly in very psychedelic atmosphere. For sure, this album is not representative for ALL Hendrix musicanship. But you will find there perfect example of his bluesy side. To hear everething, you will need to purchase one more compilation of his more regular songs.

4 stars Obviously, by the title, this is a collection of blues songs, some previously unreleased by Jimi Hendrix, so don't come here looking for prog (unless you not the similarity between Jelly 292 and the break section of Pink Floyd's Money :)

Even playing straight blues, Hendrix could astound with his technique and advanced ideas. It's too bad he made such bad decisions when it came to drugs.

The sound quality is just okay in some parts, and downright spectacular in others. Billy Cox' bass sounds amazing on Born Under A Bad Sign.

As a blues collection, this would rate five stars. Jimi loses one star here for no prog.

Review by Muzikman
PROG REVIEWER
5 stars When people think of Hendrix psychedelic rock is one of the many things that come to mind. And thinking along those lines of what a great rock guitarist he was can steer you away from the fact that everything Jimi did was rooted in the blues. He took everything to another level, especially the blues. Those that recorded with him well tell you that without hesitation. His longtime friend and bass player Billy Cox perhaps said it best - "You can call Jimi Hendrix whatever you like, but he was a bluesmaster. That's what he was. A hell of a bluesman."

With the repackaging of Jimi Hendrix: Blues in a CD/DVD remastered deluxe package you can explore that statement further and crystalize it in your mind. The package includes a booklet with plenty to absorb including a track by track rundown and a DVD. Although the DVD is short lived it is another glimpse into some live footage of Jimi along with interviews that delve into where Jimi was coming from with his music.

Hendrix loved Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and other legendary blues players. He learned their music at a very young age with a $5 acoustic guitar his father bought him. His father also encouraged him to develop his own style and he took that to heart.

The eleven tracks presented in this package will give insight into the blues and the Hendrix style and how his unique musical voice spoke for the genre and an entire generation. For instance with "Hear My Train A Comin'", you get a good helping of it in its modernized rock- blues form and then again in an acoustic setting to remind you how the electric version was realized in the first place. The blues Jimi really appreciated were played on the acoustic guitar. Everything starts somewhere and with the two contrasting versions of this track you are taken from a foundation to the musical stratosphere. Hendrix did that with all of his adaptions of blues tracks, using electronics and studio manipulation and his incredible guitar playing. And let us not forget how brilliant he was bringing that music to life onstage, yet another seemingly impossible feat at the time.

To break it all down is no easy task but I can tell you every track is smokin' hot blues and acoustically it is best illustrated by "Hear My Train A Comin'" and again with the same track which is an electric guitar production clocking in at 12:08. The rousing instrumental "Jam 292" is equally masterful and will certainly blow you away. There is much more to be enjoyed throughout this set however I found those three tracks the most exceptional.

If you are a Hendrix beginner or longtime listener, Blues will bring you down to earth then to the ends of the musical universe in one sitting. Jimi had a way of doing that with his music. This a good starting point before exploring the entire Hendrix catalog. You have to build a foundation first before a house goes up and in the case of Hendrix it was already built in his mind before he walked into the studio. You hear it all like never before on 11 amazing tracks that need several listens before you fully understand the impact and importance of the blues on the music of the late great Jimi Hendrix.
