    I have over 350 live Zep shows I've collected over the years, mostly during my college days and early days of internet tape trading. I've managed to copy about 50 or so shows to cdr, but it's time consuming to do it right. I gotta get on that project one of these days and get it completed. :D

    Zep is my all time favorite band

    You may want to check out his Band of Gypsies stuff too. More bluesy than the later psychedelia.
    What later psychadelic stuff? He was dead a couple of months after Band of Gypsies was released.

    At the end, he was also experimenting with jazz, look for an album called "Nine to the Universe".

    He wasn't gay, he was bi-curious.

    Stay away from any of the Alan Douglas hack work he did to capitalize on a dead Jimi Hendrix. Bringing in session muscians to fill in/write and finish many of the sketches Hendrix had recorded was deplorable. "Nine to the Universe" was one such release on German Polydor.

    South Saturn Delta & First Rays of the New Rising Sun are much better representations and are sanctioned and approved by what's left of the Hendrix estate. Sure there was in fighting and pilfering and bad feelings amongst Jimi's relatives but they have done a hundred times better trying to preserve his legacy than Alan Douglas "the hack".

    P.s For christ sake Alan Douglas had the drummer from The Knack (My Sharona) fill in several times for Mitch Mitchell

    Nine to the Universe
    Midnight Lightning
    War Heroes
    Voodoo Soup-released later using cuts from the above releases

    Were all released shortly after Jimi's death and most if not all the songs were finished using session musician's. They didn't even bother to call in Noel Redding or Mitch Mitchell for insight or to play. They were present at most of the original jam sessions.

    When Experience Hendrix released South Saturn Delta and First Rays.... they either left some parts in sketch form or brought in Eddie Kramer, Mitch, Noel, Billy Cox and Buddy Miles to consult and finish the songs in what they thought Jimi's vision was at the time since they were actually part of it.

    However, according to one biographer, Jimi pretended to be gay and engage in compulsive masterbation so he could get kicked out of the Army.

    Here's another interesting historical tidbit -- initially, Jimi's talent wasn't recognized in the USA until he went to the U.K. for 1 year and impressed folks like Eric Clapton, then released his first album there. Upon his return, he was catapulted into superstardom. Three years later he was gone.

    I've also heard he swallowed tin foil to make it look like he had bad ulcers when they x-rayed him. The most credible (believable?) thing I've heard is he hurt his ankle during training. I also remember hreading that he met either Billy Cox or Buddy Miles while in the Army.

    Anybody remember John Mayall and the Blues Breakers? Eric Claptons first recording at the tender age of 15 before he got together with Bruce & Baker to form Cream. Or how about Jerry Garcia being a bluegrass/americana artist before he started the Dead? Man there was a bunch of great music back then. Haven't heard it's equal since. Hendrix inspired many that followed with his unique style. Robin Trower and Stevie Ray Vaughn are two that used his playing style in many of their works. I still play Jimi's version of the Star Spangled Banner every 4th of July.

    Brad,, I owned a record store in the early seventies.I have a large Hendrix collection on vinyl(british,french, and other european pressings. The one pictured has never been opened, you will have to come over and we'll open it and listen to "monday morning blues", either thru the tylers or amazings.

    Still has the price tag,, I think that I paid 3.25 for it in 1972,,,BTW, the name of the shop was "Neptune Gardens" :D ;)

    I agree, I was just suggesting he check it out to hear a different style of Hendrix, although I have never seen it on CD.

    I think a lot of the stuff being released by his family is also pretty worthless, and never would have saw the light of day were Hendix still alive. Oh well...

    Screw that!!! I have a lot of records that are "worth some money." I opened them all up and listen to them often. I never purchased music to look at!!!:D :p

    In all honesty, who but collectors not audiophiles buy sealed records for tons of money? IMHO a record is only worth the amount and quality of music on it. I would never pay more than $40 to $50 for a record unless is was a new remastered heavy guaged hunk of vinyl.

    I saw an MFSL UHQR sealed recording of Cat Steven's, "Tea for the Tilleraman" for $250 on eBay. . . this is an excellent, exquisite, extraordinary recording of a perfect master job of this particular recording, I know because I owned it, I still wouldn't spend that kind of money on it. BTW the copy I owned was stolen from a condo I owned back in 1997. But that is just me!

    My best friend owned a record store in the early 70's called "Atlantis . . Lost Records" Those were great times when you could find a cool boutique store that sold records and other paraphernalia ;)

    Those Alan Douglas releases I mentioned are avail on import cd's (very expensive these days)

    I agree to a certain extent about the Experience Hendrix releases by the family. They are a mixed bag some great and some mediocre. I tend to be a completist so for me I'm glad they are available in good quality and the liner notes in most of the releases are great as well.

    Of all the stuff I enjoy my bootleg recordings the most. There is some superb Hendrix stuff out there outside of officially released stuff. Also the Dolly Dagger label is family sanctioned and offer legit bootleg recordings.

    The Sothby tapes and the Winterland concerts are some of my favorite bootlegs.

    That particular album isn't worth much from a monetary stand point, but the nostalgia might be :) .

    After Hendrix's death there was a huge push to release anything and everything of his. There is so much out there from that period that claims to have him on it and it's simply not true.

    In The West had tracks from the Berkeley shows in 1970. Another great string of concerts. Probelm with In The West is it's all chopped up and edited. Still at the time it was one of the few sources for that material. Now there are stellar boots as well as an official DVD and audio release.

    Screaming version of "Johnny B. Goode", too. Question for you, on your copy does the track sequence on the album jive with the track sequence in the inner cover?
