Review by Guillermo
4 stars In late 1988, in one (now defunct) FM Radio station in my city, they broadcasted for several weeks all the discography (or at least most of the discography) of John Lennon. In one of the radio programmes, they broadcasted a recording of "Day Tripper" and they announced it as being played by "the Jimi Hendrix Experience with John Lennon", so I was a bit surprised but anyway I recorded it in a cassette. A lot of years later, with the availability of the web, I finally could search for information about this recording, and I found that this recording of "Day Tripper" was not recorded with John Lennon, but in fact only by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, with Noel Redding "singing a bit like Lennon". In fact, all the three members of the band sing in this song, doing a very good heavy version. Finally, I also found that this song was included in an official album from 1988 titled "Radio One" which also included other recordings done for the BBC in 1967.

"Drivin' South - Alternate Version" is a heavy and very good instrumental musical piece played with energy by the band.

"Hear My Train A Comin' - Alternate Version" is a very good song, sung by Hendrix, and also played with energy by the band, also including some "chatting" and good humour between the members of the band.

The recordings are very good.
