I bought a few blues albums at once, including jimi. I am really blown away by this album. In a world of subscriber based services, I would recommend sacrificing the price of one month's subscription listening to anything for a month to buying this outright to hear forever. It's well worth it.

Hendrix and Winwood, connected. Beautiful and it needs to play loud or in headphones.

Just but the whole album and i do not have any regrets!!

Hephest

Just amazing. The improvisation of Hendrix is uncanny.

Want to have some fun? Compare Jimi's "Red House" to John Lee Hooker's; Jimi's "Mannish Boy" to Muddy Waters'; Jimi's "Catfish Blues" to B.B. King's. All great stuff!

Gives me chills of joy to listen.

My favorite Jimi album! There are obligatory "greatest hits" collections, but this compilation of Jimi's best blues covers outranks them all. A fantastic collection, highly recommended!

Greatest album I've ever bought. EVER!

this is without a doubt my favorite Hendrix album. Long live the king!!!!! Born Under a Bad Sign and Once I had a Woman are the best songs

I paid for a song already that is now album only and i can't download it. What the F iTunes. I already paid for the first song in particular. At least make it a "complete" my album. Please fix this.

I like Hendrix, but let's get real. The good: Born Under a Bad Sign, Red House, and Bleeding Heart. The mediocre: Everything else on this album. Hendrix died at a young age, and although he definitely showed signs of brilliance, it was far from realized. Play these tracks and imagine that one of your friends and his band had recorded them, and not the "mythical" and "legendary" Jimi Hendrix. What would you honestly think? Most of this album gets on my nerves.

I just found out about these 4 posthumous albums and decided to try this one first. I was skeptical because I thought it was just a ripoff of a great artist. But this shows Hendrix without the constraint of recording a 'hit'. He's just playing and playing great; the sound quality is excellent. If you're a fan this is a must have: I do put this atop all of my other Hendrix albums.

iTunes, i think you got a typo. i never heard of the song "Jam 292" but on my copy of Blues, track 9 is called "Jelly 292"

I love this album because it mixes Jimi's style with the music he first started playing the blues! Any Jimi Hendrix fan or blues fan will love this it's worth the money.

Peter Rashid

This album is a must have for any blues fan, and for any fan of music for that matters. Just a great album!

I was slightly apprehensive about purchasing this album. I love Jimi Hendrix, but I thought he only played hard 60's rock. How wrong I was! This album is his own unique brand of muddy blues. The band is great, and production is fantastic, and after listening to "Mannish Boy" just once, you'll find yourself tapping your foot to the driving beat. This is a must buy for Hendrix and blues fans alike!!

Buy it. You are here, obviously, because you like either Hendrix or the blues -- and either way, this album is a total no-brainer. I'm amazed at how many serious blues aficionados are unaware of Hendrix's contributions to that genre. He's one of the great ones, folks -- right there with any blues immortal you can name. Most rock musicians get their start with the blues, and many come back to it eventually; but Hendrix never left. This is Blues 101 -- it's the album I suggest to blues neophytes for their first serious listening experience, and the one often, inexplicably, missing from hard-core collections.

This compilation is just a non-stop, constant flow of ridiculous jam's that never cease to amaze. Hendrix was always trying improve his technique and grow as an artist while he was alive and by the end of this album it's obvious why he is considered of the best artists of all time. His guitar playing was so insane you really NEED to buy this album and listen to it multiple times to really understand what I mean.

do you feel like we do

Its Hendrix, what else would you expect but 5 stars???

AeroGunsHendrix

This album is Epic: containing insane, soulful, and amazing guitar riffs. This Album futher proves why Hendrix is the Greatest guitar player to ever live.

I love this album. I stumbled across it when I had an itunes giftcard, was down to the last $10, and had to decide between this one and another album. So glad I went with this Blues Album by Hendrix. It captured me from the drop C tuning on the 12 string on the first track "Hear My Train a Comin" to the amazing guitar instrumental of "Born Under a Bad Sign" to the jam "Jelly 292" and "Hear My a Train a Comin" electric is just a great way to end this. I would have to say phenomenal musician and phenomenal arrangement. So glad this album was released. It makes a great addition to any music collection and if you've only heard Hendrix's rock and roll, then this is the other half! Worth every penny! Jimi Hendrix Rocks!

1st listen... I felt he was holding back, maybe confining his style.. But even then it's an awesome listen. 2nd listen.... I'll revisit while on the road and see how my opinion changes. Definite buy for the collection!

Perhaps no other album managed to capture Jimi Hendrix and his roots in such a pure and raw form. The songs on this album portrays Jimi's deep roots as a blues guitarist first, and maps out a progression in his early style that helped shape the legend we know of today. If you are a true Jimi Hendrix fan, then this album is a must for your collection.

This is my favorite Jimi Hendrix Album. It was compiled after his death from all the "Blues" songs he had recorded. It has all the elements of rock, while still keeping its true blues/jazz feel. He is truly an amazing guitarist! Definitely recommend this album, as well as the songs "Born under a bad sign" "catfish blues", "bleeding heart" and "voodoo chile blues". These songs are straight from the heart!
