    I enjoyed this album immensely, Hendrix continues to impress 43 years after his death. They cleaned up the audio so it's crisp and clear and feels like your in the same room as the Experience.

    This album is what I would consider to be an awesome surprise to the Hendrix fans. Even though it does feel out of place from time to time, you need to remember that the tracks are all recorded on a separate occasion and probably for a different album at the time, so it does feel as if it is a bit everywhere.

    I myself got the LP in the mail today, gave it a spin, I decided not to listen

    I myself got the LP in the mail today, gave it a spin, I decided not to listen to this album on spotify, but to get the full fledged impression i'd get if you'd buy the album, needless to say, I was not disappointed. The album is great, catchy and everything you could really ask for from a artist that has been dead for about fourty years.

    Reason I am giving it a 8/10 is because it feels "loose" and some of the songs don't really fit in with the major "sound of the album." Like I said, they all were recorded on different occasions.

    Get this album!

    Must listen track: Izabella.

    I was shocked the first time i heard the album. Album of the year! It forces me to open a beer and enjoy the rest of the album. How much we miss you!!

    Great album, my favorite tracks are Hear my train a comin' and Hey Gypsy Boy although i preferred the other versions on "First rays of the new rising sun". I enjoyed the other recordings as well.

    This fourth is no less essential for fans than the previous three. [May 2013, p.117]

    There's enough here that's new to renew your love of Hendrix. Yes, there's blood in the stone yet. [Apr 2013, p.94]

    The posthumous tracks that have emerged are among the best of Hendrix's late work. [Apr 2013, p.50]
