Again 6 masterpieces, all released in Track-label originally (and its UK version of Are You Experienced, so no Purple Haze, Hey Joe & the Wind Cries Mary in that). I believe this time Who has more chance to win! I put now Whos Next, so I have much easier to vote Hendrix this time.

Hendrix. A force of nature.

I get more mileage out of the Who than Jimi. It's just that I prefer their songs; this says nothing about the musicianship.

The world of sound is certainly capable of infinite variety and, were our sense developed, of infinite extensions. -- George Santayana, "The Sense of Beauty"

Wouldn't having the Who albums my generation, a quick one and Sell Out go against the JHE albums make more sense?

The choice is obvious: just take a look at my profile picture. I'd much rather experience the Jimi Hendrix albums any day of the week and three times on Sunday. Smile

Extremely difficult choice

the weaker albums are Tommy and Axis . The only two albums I still listen to are Ladyland and Quadrophenia.

The Who by far. Jimi Hendrix may be a mythical virtuoso and I don't deny his great talent, but unfortunately, he does not hit the right string with me very often.

How about the left string? After all, he was left handed. Wink

Yeah, kind of bizarre to compare, particularly since Who's Next (1971) and Quadrophenia (1973) came out after Hendrix died (September 18, 1970).

It should at least be A Quick One (1967), The Who Sell Out (1967) and Tommy (1969) for a more direct reference point to Experience (1967), Axis (1967) and Ladyland (1968). Who knows what Hendrix would have released by the time Quadrophenia came out in 1973.

Hendrix death is and was a great tragedy. yet he deliverd much while he lived. Both units packs a ton of energy which is hardly matched by anyone.

I wouldn't go quite that far..  it would have been interesting to see who Hendrix worked with in the years to come. Face it.. the Experience was a good backing band for the 'show'. but was already obvious before he left that he wanted upgrades around him. I often thought considering the massive massive MASSIVE influence of Sly Stone on what came musically in the 70's.. I think that is the direction he would have moved in..  hell.. nearly everyone else did.

Hendrix was brilliantly creative, but one album alone wins this poll for The Who. Who's Next. If that were taken out, then Jimi wins hands down.
