Strange But Wonderful

"I can't tell. Is this love or confusion? Many different styles and ages are presented in this strange four CD set. Some songs start off mid song, some just stop, some taken from other cd's and some I can't distinguish if Jimi is really there. But hell, it's got some nice rarities and different versions of songs live so it's worth the 20 bucks."
Should be illegal

"Please dont promote substandard music related with the name of Jimi Hendrix associatted with producer Ed Chalpin. It is downright criminal. Jimi would be suing all these people if he was alive. He even asked Ed Chalpin while he was doing some of these rehearsal sessions. "your'e not going to release this are you?" in which Chalpins response was ".. no way Jimi.. are you kidding?". Well why is so much of this crapp allowed on the market? Somebody should do something about it.!!!!!!!!"

"I haven't heard this album, but I own a dodgy Hendrix CD with an identical track listing to disk 2. I'm not saying that some of it does not involve Jimi Hendrix. But, listening to these tracks made me very curious, and I found a very creditable website about Early Hendrix which says that 'Bring My Baby Back', 'Suspicious', 'Good Feeling' and 'Hot Trigger' are fakes, as in containing no involvement by Hendrix, just a 'lead guitar player playing "Hendrix-style".' In the case of 'Good Feeling', it's also singing 'Hendrix-style'. A bit lame and sad, unless you think it is an homage. Apologies to all if this is all genuine Hendrix, though I seriously doubt it. Track 15, for example, is the real deal. But, my feeling is that these 4 tracks, at least, are as phoney as a two-bob watch. The music on the 18 tracks on disc 2 is mostly pretty groovy, but I suggest you bear in mind that it might not all involve Jimi Hendrix playing."
