Jimi Hendrix: Hendrix in the West 2-LP 12" 200g Vinyl
[+] enlarge image

Consisting of live material recorded at venues ranging from the Berkeley Community Theatre, San Diego Sports Arena, Winterland Ballroom, to the Isle of Wight Festival, Hendrix In The West captures the guitarist exploring new directions in sound during 1969-70. Robert Christgau, the Dean of American Rock Critics, called Hendrix's versions of "Red House" and, "Johnny B. Goode" on this album "definitive."

Out of print in the U.S. since 1974 and for more than two decades internationally, Hendrix In The West has remained one of the most requested albums by fans to return to the commercial marketplace. Mastered from the original sources and pressed on high-quality 200-gram audiophile grade vinyl at the new world-class Quality Record Pressings facility in Salinas, Kansas; and up to the same stellar standards as fellow Experience Hendrix / Legacy Recordings' reissues of Jimi Hendrix's groundbreaking studio efforts, the record has never sounded or looked better. Each of the first 5,000 copies of the vinyl edition of Hendrix In The West will also be individually crash numbered.

The album's iconic cover features a classic Jim Marshall photograph of the guitarist, while a lavish booklet is filled with rare and previously unseen images captured by Marshall's distinctive lens. Moreover, listeners get to discover five previously unavailable bonus tracks that, believe it or not, add on to Hendrix's considerable legacy. In addition to the Chuck Berry cover, Hendrix also re-imagines the Beatles ("Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band") and Carl Perkins ("Blue Suede Shoes").

This expanded edition of Hendrix In The West is also available as a single CD digipak.

Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live in Cologne 2-Disc LP
The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live In Cologne , the twelfth release in the Dagger Records official bootleg series, documents this spirited, January 13, 1969 performance at the Sporthalle in Cologne, Germany. Hendrix kicked off the proceedings with a scalding “Come On (Let the Good Times Roll)” from Electric Ladyland. This Earl King chestnut had long been a favorite of Jimi’s and here he began with a driving solo introduction before signaling Redding and Mitchell to join. Next followed a blistering version of “Foxey Lady,” a perennial stage favorite. An abrupt tape cut precedes a memorable rendition of “Red House.” Thankfully the performance is essentially complete lacking only Jimi’s prefacing stage banter, offered as he likely changed guitars before starting. “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” followed next, not yet established as Jimi’s closing number as it would become later in 1969 and remain so throughout his career, but no less muscular. Jimi then shifted directly into “Fire” and then a thunderous “Spanish Castle Magic.” The Experience were clearly locked in sync, pushing each other throughout all to the delight of their audience. The Experience never backed off, launching next into their first single “Hey Joe.” Jimi had to do some quick tuning on the fly, but he pressed on undaunted, boldly dashing off a lick from the Beatles’ “I Feel Fine” as he barreled through this uptempo rendition. This driving intensity built up after the solo, underscored by Jimi’s rhythm guitar work and Mitchell’s superb drumming before culminating in a rousing finale. “Sunshine Of Your Love” was offered in tribute to Cream, all to the delight of the audience whose howls of approval can be heard even during Redding’s bass solo. “Star Spangled Banner” and “Purple Haze” capped off a truly memorable night and then the Experience were gone, whisked off to the next city and another unsuspecting audience.
