CD Reviews

Great Posthumous Hendrix
Christopher Fama | Chicago, IL USA | 02/09/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Alan Douglas takes a lot of flack for 1975's Crash Landings, which is too bad because its a solid record. If you don't read the credits, you'll never know other musicians recorded backing tracks to these well developed tunes. This recording is a very logical sequel to the cry of Love which Hendrix was working on at the time of his death.

Some reviewers here have suggested that extensive overdubbing was done on these recordings, which I suspect to be false since they would have been included these on First Rays or the miserable South Saturn Delta, both "authorized Experience Hendrix" releases.

In fact, the CD vesrion of Crash Landing reveals a click track in the backround, so perhaps Hendrix was ahead of his time (again) preparing tracks and ideas as quickly as possible to be fleshed out later.

Alan Douglas really deserves praise for delivering a "new" Hendrix record in 1975. I've been listening and studying Jimi for years, and if this isn't the real thing, its too close to call."
Great album, very underrated

"I have to scratch my head and wonder about people who gave this album a bad review. Huh?

I first got this in the early 80s and have always loved it. So- the backing musicians are different. I don't see that as deminishing the album's value. But then, I listen to Jimi to hear Jimi.

In short, this album completely smokes. Highly recommended. Peace in Mississippi, baby."
Excellent album

"This album was put together after Hendrix died. Regardless the essence of Hendrix is captured wonderfully. Several of the tracks here are first rate, my favorite being "With The Power". "Message To Love" and "Stone Free Again" are also classic tracks. This is a must have for any Hendrix enthusiast."
