I guess the most egregious thing Kramer did on the Valleys Of Neptune comp, was what he did for the title track. He had a take with full band but no vocal and a take with just guitar, drums and vocal. So he put the vocal from the one take onto the other full band take. A lot of people here felt that the original take with the vocal was just fine and should have been released as is. On the next comp, People, Hell and Angels, there was some tampering with Jimi's vocal on the track Crash Landing. For some reason the vocal lines are sort of time-shifted away from how Jimi originally sang it. I think there are several other instances where Kramer did some tinkering, but I dont remember. This was all discussed in the threads at the time the releases came out. As for the new release, I'm always excited to hear more Jimi. But man, Black Gold is long, long, long overdue. Royal Albert Hall long overdue. Would love to hear fresh mixes of whatever is salvageable from Maui along with all existing film. They should have done the smart thing a long time ago and created a best of BoG studio tracks comp. 2 CD or 3 CD, whatever. But no. More piecemeal, of course. Also, who thought up the title? Is this part of a line from one of the tracks included? I dont recall Jimi using this phrase. This is the best they could come up with? Kramer said though “Both Sides of the Sky” is the last of the trilogy, someone could find new Hendrix music in an attic or a basement, which could be re-worked. Seriously, with all the amazing piles of reels upon reels that have been described to us in the Ultimate Hendrix book, you are going to say something like this? 1. You have loads of stuff still unreleased. You dont need to hope for some stuff to turn up in someone's attic. 2. Nothing has to be ''re-worked", whatever that means. Just mix the stuff that you have into decent stereo mixes and put it out on CD. 3. Trilogy? Haha, when was this ever discussed? Hendrix at 70: New album offers different look "This is the last studio album, but what's coming up is the fact that we have tremendous amount of live recorded concerts in the vault," Kramer said.
