    Yes, but well worth having.

  4. I made the same mistake answering the same question in a different thread. It's not that hard to do, as it was s just Jimi strumming his electric guitar like others would an acoustic.

    I'm with you on Kramer, but I kind of doubt it's Janie's idea to frankenstein the tracks. I really cant picture her being cognizant enough of the Valley's of Neptune takes to suggest it
     
  6. Janie is credited as one of the producers of VON. Why wouldn't she be party to conversations concerning production decisions and track selections? She doesn't strike me as a hands-off personality type or an idiot.

    Has anyone heard if there are going to be Target exclusive tracks for their release, as the last two archival releases?

    Producer's input can vary. You really think Janie was like hey, you know that Valley's of Neptune's take lol. That is not her job at all. There is no way that was her idea and I just cant picture her listening to the raw takes in the vault. Just look at how many Hendrix fans havent heard Linda before. Janie isn't the one digging through the vault But whoevers idea it was...I have a BIG PROBLEM with him and Kramer.....

  9. I never said she was digging through the vault, but you really think she was unaware of how VON was created? It was the single from the album ffs. Why do you think she is so far out of the process that decides what gets released?

    My guess is no one person makes a decision on what studio leftovers get released or cut and pasted together. My guess is Janie, McDermott, and Kramer probably discuss what is there and what can be done with what. Janie probably doesn't have a lot of say, but I am sure she is involved in it to some degree. As to the cut and paste jobs, it's better than completely erasing takes and replacing them with players that had nothing to do with Jimi. How anyone can even compare that is beyond me. And you know, ever since there have been razor blades and splicing blocks, cut and pasting performances has been going on. It's not like this is something new. You might not like the results and that's fine, but some of vitriol in here is just frankly ridiculous.

    Yea I mean I think Janie is just way up on the chain, she probably gets handed a finished product and approves it
     
  12. Very well said. Much better than my cranky party-impacted brain could construct last night.:winkgrin:

  13. Maybe, but She,via Experience Hendrix, bankrolls all of Eddie's time and effort in editing these songs together so I would be surprised if she is not involved in deciding what's worth investing in before approving the effort spent. I could be wrong, but at least I'm not dismissing the possibility out of hand like other folks here apparently because she is a woman and not a musician or audio engineer.

    Always looking forward to a Hendrix release. There are some on here that will be new to me as I have never heard them so I preordered the vinyl from Amazon. Kinda wish it had "Message To Love" on it (I prefer the Crash Landing version to the South Saturn Delta version but probably since i have known that version since I was a kid. Crash Landing, for all the hate it gets, was the first Hendrix album I was exposed to at the age of 5 when my then teenage brother bought it and played it for me).

    Of course she is. I mean, I don’t know her but she is obviously taking care of business and she can have my money.
    To those who seem to think she is just clueless and hungry for cash: have u ever seat with Sony executives? She must be VERY good, because Music is not a nice business.

    What I don't understand is why some of the tracks off of Dagger releases Burning Desire and Hear My Music weren't saved for a mainstream "new Jimi Hendrix album." Some of the it was even better than People, Hell and Angles I thought.
    I can understand a lot of the live shows due to sound quality, Morning Symphony Ideas , the Gypsys rehearsal all being Dagger. But Burning Desire and Hear My Music?

    I just can't get over the fact that we still haven't gotten the full-band version of "Midnight Lightning" without the Alan Douglas overdubs and editing. Sure, "Linda" is nice, and I'm actually looking forward to the version with vocals, but the backing track of "Midnight Lightning" is simply my holy grail of things they should release!

    The versions of "Message To Love" that you are looking for (which Douglas built on for Crash Landing) are in the purple box set and West Coast Seattle Boy. The one on SSD was a looser Gypsy Sun & Rainbows take.
    It's a stupid shame that the best versions of the song are deep inside box sets and not part on regular album release. Instead, they prefer to Frankenstein songs together and throw in anything that they can find.

    Does anyone think the Purple Box reissue price will go down? I paid like 65 dollars shipped for a sealed copy of WCSB vinyl box set last year. It was barely in stock anywhere althought Best Buy still had a copy for sale on for 70

    You'll have to call Experience Hendrix to get the scoop, via long distance on the public saxophone ;)

    I think it is a pretty big omission as well, but do wonder if the omission of this song is due to its incomplete nature. Perhaps EH is content with the solo version on SSD.

    Probably because a lot of that material is extended and expansive jams. None of the mainstream, single disc compilations have really gone that route -- the music is typically comprised of structured songs with vocals or shorter instrumentals.

    Put me down as looking forward to it...with reservations. I make the one Frankensteining exception with Valleys of Neptune, since it wasn't done and it gave us an idea of what it would've sound like. They should have put out the full 1969 version on WCSB however. I can't see them doing it with Linda because the BOG jam and the solo Jimi version are just to0 different. Mostly looking forward to Power of Soul in digital and a nice clean Cherokee Mist.
