Jimi Hendrix

First Rays of the New Rising Sun

This for me was Jimi's Finest Hour; He had matured as an artist and tunesmith. Pali Gap was and still is my favourite instrumental by any artist including "The Shadows" who I love. The tracks originally appeared on a series of albums after his untimely death; and was only released in its originally intended package in the 1990's. Bob George

  • All the focus seems to be on 'Electric Ladyland' but IMO this is his best work. Imagine if he finished it, the songs are even better written than those on 'Electric Ladyland' and he really took his guitar playing and production to new heights on this material.
