A CD-R release on the Major Tom label! Another in a nice series of
Deluxe CD-R releases. Another fancy color insert and a nice label on the
disc itself once again. Major Tom puts out very nice homemade releases.
The slip cover found in the front of the jewel case is of the fold open
variety. The cover is a photo of Jimi, Mitch and Noel. Its from the photo
session where there is the psychedelic swirls behind the boys. I have a
nice poster from this shoot. A great photo!! Across the top left is "Jimi
Hendrix" in yellow font and the title of the disc is across the bottom
left of the cover, in smaller yellow font.
On the reverse slip cover, the background is pinkish red, "Jimi Hendrix
TV Sessions" runs across the top in white font. The song titles beginning
at the top and running down the middle in small white font, center
justified. At the very bottom right is the label and disc number.
Open the slip cover and we see on the left page "Jimi Hendrix",
followed by the title of the CD and then the the song titles down the
left. To the right of the titles are some location information. Shotgun
is noted as "First TV appearance 1965". Hey Joe is "Top of the Pops
1967". Manic Depression is from "Late Night Line-Up 1967". Foxy Lady is
said to be from "US TV 1968", but I think it is Clark University. Hey Joe
and Wild Thing it says is from "French TV 1967". Definitely these songs
were recorded in October 1967, but I am not too sure about the actual
date and venues. Tracks #7-#12 are from Jimi's two appearances on the
Dick Cavett show in 1969. The remainder of the tracks are noted as being
from "Top of the Pops 1967". Again, I can't be sure of the dates, but I
can tell you the sound is absolutely horrible. Sounds like someone
recorded the tunes while they were on TV and the tape machine was across
the room. Very disappointing as I don't believe these tunes survived on
I may be wrong there and I would ask for anyone who is more
knowledgable about the dates Jimi appeared on TV, especially the French
and BBC stuff, to impart their wisdom as to when these tunes were recorded.
At the bottom of the page is "Major Tom MT 035". On the right hand side
it lists the MT releases from MT 031 to MT 045. There are no new Jimi
titles that haven't been discussed here previously.
The back of the jewel box has the cover photo again, although this time
it is stretched a bit horizontally so it looks a bit wide. The same text
found on the cover of the CD is present, albeit in a bit of a different
location, as well as the label and disc number and "Made in Taiwan" in
the bottom right corner in yellow font.
No times are indicated anywhere on this release. The times given above
are from my CD player. All tracks are indexed separately.
The disc itself has a nice reproduction of the cover photo and is a
gold/brass in color. It has "Jimi Hendrix" at the top with the title in
the lower left. The label name and disc number, along with "Made in
Taiwan" is at the right.
The sounds is uneven throughout as would be expected. The Cavett stuff
sounds good, it is just the last 5 tunes that sound really bad.
A nice collection and it is good to see that they stayed away from the
more well known BBC stuff like Lulu show and the Radio One songs.
It would be nice if anyone can contribute their thoughts as to the
dates that are missing.
