Jimi Hendrix - ACOUSTIC JAMS (Sphinx Records SXCD-001) [Bootleg] [live 1967-1970,soundboard]

Hello friends, enemies and all the rest of you.
Hendrix! What a guy. I like his personality, or what I know of it considering I was a snivelling imbecile whilst he was alive(so what's changed? Not much probably), but he always seemed like a really likeable personality. A genuine guy. If you know much about him and have seen much footage then you'll also know there was another side to him. A few moments have been taped, videoed, whatever where he was a moody fecker. Some shows he was so disinterested that he would wind up shouting insults at the audience, not playing the songs 'properly' or just generally displaying a lack of respect for performing. Some of these were in reaction to a fucked up and disrespectful audience: being so rowdy and arsey that Hendrix would reply by giving them a crappy show and leaving as soon as it was done. Sometimes leaving beforehand. I am just talking here; no googling; no 'Life Of Hendrix' guidebook in front of me, no quotes or factoids. It is true however as I've been following and looking up his performances for a while now. There will be many postings here in the future no doubt.

So this is a bootleg release which I believe was done twice over the years with the same title of 'Acoustic Jams' but the important thing to note here, before you immediately think you've heard it(as there are a few 'hendrix acoustic, hendrix in his flat in NY and other hendrix acoustic stuff torrented or going around the net..') you need to pay attention to the SPHINX part in the title. This one is worth hearing believe me. Of course the NY/Drake Hotel solo stuff is the same here as found elsewhere but I find on this one it is about the best quality I have found. It is a compilation, as a million bootlegs are but it's a great set of tracks and some lovely, mellow playing by a guy who is obviously under no pressure, chilling out and strumming away.
Please be aware I am bringing you only the FIRST CD today due to having to reupload so many files, I will be uploading and posting CD TWO very soon don't fret!
The facts as far as I can tell are as follows:

Title: ACOUSTIC JAMS (Sphinx Records SXCD-001)
The guts of this are:
'Drake Hotel Demos, New York City, NY apr.1968 / Electric Demos 1968 / Outtakes 1967-70 plus The Apartment Jams, Jimi's House, Shokan, NY july-aug.1969 [The so-called "Taj Mahal Jams"])' - taken from various bootleg sources online!

Thanks a lot for this one. You are very right saying Jimi is playing relaxed here: I love it!!!

You say about Jimi: "There will be many postings here in the future no doubt".
I hope you mean non-official releases because everybody should have his official discography by now :-).
I'm surprised how many Hendrix stuff is still out there. Yesterday I downed a 5CD set of studio reels: very interesting!

Cheers. I do have a very large collection of the man and by that I mean, mostly, exclusively non official stuff!
People can go get bloody electric ladyland anywhere so I will only post the bootlegs and maybe some interesting DVDs or documentaries I have here.
They are in the queue for upping to the site but one problem is, the queue is getting very frigging long!

No -sorry mate but you missed the boat on this one....check the date - 2006!!!
There are plenty of more recent and good quality bootlegs to be got in the last year at least so search the site for Hendrix and see what else you find.

Someone either hates me, hates hendrix or has a strange affliction for killing either other peoles enjoyment or just links.
