"This was my introduction to all the great Hendrix stuff outside of 'Purple Haze' and 'Foxy Lady'. The man had a gift for songwriting and creating a vibe in the studio or on stage and this disc documents it all the way. The live I Don't Live Today (shades of Jimi's Native American heritage?) and Killing Floor are worth the price of the CD itself, and the awesome build up in the guitar solo (multi-layered) in Stepping Stone is unparalleled elsewhere in Jimi's studio work. I used to own this on cassette tape and am totally happy to see it on CD. All the tracks are noteworthy, not dull moment or filler song on the entire album. After buying Jimi's three studio releases and one live album during his lifetime (up to 1970), this is the next one to get.
**** Jimi , your talent is missed !!! ****

"Now THIS album is really producer Alan Douglas' best effort.....I just like the whole ' vibe ' of this compilation , and the songs really flow well together....the inclusion of the Monterey Pop Festival live track ' Killing Floor ' , and ' I don't Live Today ' from the San Diego , May 24, 1969 show , REALLY add a nice touch to the track selection.......and as far as a 'greatest hits ' compilation , this is THEE one to go with .... it truly represents some of his BEST work and shows the diversity of his talent.....everything from his Blues roots to his Instrumental masterpiece 'Third Stone from the Sun' to his INCREDIBLE sonic landscapes on ' Voodoo Child ' [ slight return ] and ' Are you Experienced ' plus the song by Dylan that Jimi made his own ' All along the Watchtower ' are all here...........BUY THIS ALBUM NOW , you won't be disappointed !"
