Hendrix destroyed Coryell
M. C. Finley | Saint Paul, MN USA | 09/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Coryell and Hendrix emerged at the same identical moment, developing some of the same sounds. It is not true that Coryell "copied" Jimi. Hendrix was far luckier than Coryell, emerging with the sponsorship of Paul McCartney, Pete Townsend, and Chas Chandler of the Animals, and rode his work to glory. Coryell lacked Hendrix's 4 star sex appeal. Coryell eked out an existence as a jazz rocker. It is wonderful that his catalog is now being restored. This is a fabulous, furious recording."
Larry Coryell sounds nothing like Hendrix

"Larry Coryell is a jazz-based guitarist, Hendrix was a blues-based guitarist. They sound NOTHING like each other. I have no idea what the reviewers below are talking about. They must be rather young and not have lived through the era and experienced what music was like at the time. A little distortion does not make one sound like Hendrix.
Larry Coryell is a fantastic guitarist, but this album is kind of dated. Not that there's anything wrong with that. However, in his later albums, he developed his real style.
