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 one...it 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!
