3 stars So, new (?) Jimi Hendrix album. How good it is? I think, it is generally good.

You can really enjoy it if you never owned original Hendrix studio album, or his great live album, or good compilation (one from hundred possible). If you have his name, but just missed his legacy ( all generation is growing, so it's no joke). It is not a best entry album, but could be used for that as well.

You can enjoy this album as well if your only Hendrix is "Blues" compilation (really great one). So, you will hear more different sides of his music. For sure you must have it, if you're collector ( I believe this category is main market target of this release).

In all other cases this album is still not bad. For your money you will get 12 songs ( four of them are really unreleased), good sound quality and feeling that you own fresh Hendrix album. Possibly, you wouldn't be too much happy, when after listening you will realize, that almost half of all songs you heard many times before (ok, there are formally slightly different versions). And possibly you will be a bit disappointed because some compositions sound more as demo versions or studio outtakes ( they really are). But what could you expect from new album of great guitarist some decades after his death?

So - no way sensation. Listenable and pleasant in many moments, but hardly "new" album, and money wasn't the last reason of this release for sure. But -what a terrible time we are living in? Listening new Hendrix album I am speaking about money....

Just listen and enjoy - once again, he is one of greatest guitarist in rock history.
