    Well the new Hendrix album is finally with us. What do people think? I love Easy Blues, Isabella, Earth Blues, Somewhere and Villanova Junction Blues. Most of these tracks have been heard before but these raw versions don't contain any overdubs and I feel that Hendrix's soul really comes through. I got my vinyl copy a day earlier than its release date - stroke of luck! I've also preordered it on iTunes so I can play it on the move!

    I have only listened to the first disc, I have been busy covering at Oxfam.. on first listen it is a bit hit and miss, some I really like from the off and others I feel are like filler.. I'll give it proper full listen over the weekend.. I have a feeling it will be a grower, the more I play it the more I will like.

    Initially I felt the same but I am finding it to be a grower. I was disappointed in the beginning by the fact that many of the songs have been heard before but I like these raw versions without overdubs and I'm beginning to really get into them now.

    New Hendrix concert film just aired in the US on Showtime. I'm not sure if it's been acquired by a UK broadcaster (ideal for BBC4/More4/Sky Arts), but it's easily obtainable ;), and is scheduled for a UK DVD/Blu-ray release on 30th October.
