On the Killing Floor
Swingin' Pig (TSP-CD-012-2)
Intense, incredible, the true genius of Jimi Hendrix at his best. Both
shows from the Konserthuset in Stockholm. With Jimi not in true form during
the first show he blasts back later that night and delivers a knockout
performance. I Don't Live Today, Spanish Castle Magic, Voodoo Child and
Sunshine of Your Love are all delivered with blistering intensity. Both
CD's crystal clear sound make you feel as though you were there yourself. A
must have for all Hendrix enthusiasts.

Only the Good Die Young
White Knight (WK22)
Double LP release of various studio and concert songs. Sound quality is
rather bad with many of the songs sounding as if they had been taken from
audience recordings. There is some Stockholm '69 and '70, some Singer Bowl,
Monterey and L.A. Forum.
1. I Don't Live Today
2. The Wind Cries Mary
3. Killing Floor
4. Stone Free/Lover Man
5. All Along the Watchtower
7. Spanish Castle Magic
8. Cherokee Mist
9. Are You Experienced
10. Come On
12. Pass It On
Rating: B- A great compilation of rare shows, but mediocre sound quality
keeps this rating low.
Out of the Studio: Demo's From 1967
A must have, if only for the studio run-throughs of "Red House" and "I
Don't Live Today". Jimi's playing is absolutely stunning!
1. Purple Haze 2:39
"incredible psychodelic (sic) version with overdubbed
voices from Hendrix"
2. Red House 10:45
"various takes of this number with fuzz guitars"
3. Ma Poupee Qui Fait Non 3:35
"an unheard of conversion from the top hit of M. Polnareff"
4. I Don't Live Today 16:10
"4 different takes where Hendrix really showed what he was able of
at that time"
5. Fire 2:35 "unreleased version"
6. Wind Cries Mary 3:30 "unreleased version"
These are just the quotes from the liner notes.
