Framed by his 1967 acoustic 12string rendition of Hear My Train A Comin and a 1970 Trio performance of the same song these 11 rough and ready tracks illustrate Hendrixs deep spiritual connections to his blues roots and his daring experimental take on the shape of future blues to come And theyve never sounded so vital necessary or dynamic

When the American expatriate James Marshall Hendrix made his triumphant return to the United States with ARE YOU EXPERIENCED hed just smelted British pop psychedelia R&B Bob Dylan and Cream into a gleaming rock and roll alloy Nothing quite looked or sounded like the musical melting pot that was the Jimi Hendrix Experience Yet the American release of ARE YOU EXPERIENCED differed from the British version in one significant respect Everybody was scared to relase Red House in America Hendrix recalled because they said America dont like blues man

Yes its hard to believe but the Experiences original rendition of Jimis epic Red House recorded in London on December 13 1966 appears stateside for the very first time on this superb compilation of Hendrix rarities including 8 previously unreleased tracks simply entitled BLUES

BLUES is probably the best packaged richest sounding most coherent postmortem release from the Hendrix archives Fleshed out by Michael J Fairchilds detailed informative essay BLUES portrays Jimi Hendrix as a classic bluesman a devout student of the tradition from down home delta stylings to sophisticated urban forms Framed by his poignant 1967 acoustic 12string rendition of Hear My Train A Comin and a stirring 1970 trio performance these 11 rough and ready tracks illustrate Hendrixs deep spiritual connections to his blues roots and his daring experimental take on the shape of future blues to come

Thus you have a moody studio outtake of his autobiographical Voodoo Chile Blues and a ruminative Born Under A Bad Sign in which his Albert King tribute evolves with ragalike complexity Hendrixs Catfish Blues is a powerful evocation of tribal elders Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters while his abstract chord changes and soaring strident leads on the shuffling Jelly 292 are an affectionate parody of classic urban blues lines such as After Hours and Sweet Home Chicago Taken as a whole Jimi Hendrixs BLUES is the portrait of a great American original who was like Stevie Ray Vaughan a generation later just beginning to scratch the surface of his awesome talent

Includes liner notes by Michael J Fairchild

Rolling Stone 5/19/94 p100 what sets this album apart is the way it illuminates the guitarists debt to other bluesmen as well as his genius for pushing beyond those influences
Entertainment Weekly 6/14/94 p66 paints a more complete picture of Jimi as traditionalist Loose and improvisational he had an amazing range Rating A
Option 8/94 p89 Hendrixs masterful guitar playing even on the most derivative of these thirdstring outtakes 24 years after his death provides a better lesson on creativity
Musician 7/94 p89 Through the hiss and crackle of these recordings you can actually hear the blues giving birth to the gymnastic bluesrock and psychedelic guitar that influenced the Stevie Ray Vaughans the Robin Trowers and the Vernon Reids
