Jimi Hendrix – Martin Scorcese Presents The Blues
This disc is from Scorcese’s TV documentary series (there are a bunch of discs from it, I have a few). Let’s be honest, we know what we’re getting going into this, right? I mean, it’s Jimi, playing a bunch of blues tracks… what more do I need to say? 😉
Even better, it has two previously unheard tracks? Yeah baby!
“The album features two previously unreleased blues inspired performances. “Georgia Blues” (recorded on March 19, 1969 at New York’s Record Plant Studios) was recorded with saxophonist Lonnie Youngblood, with whom Hendrix played some early sessions in 1966. Also previously unreleased is “Blue Window”, recorded in March 1969 at Mercury Studios in New York. This track features Buddy Miles Express members: Buddy Miles on drums, Duane Hitchings on organ, Bill Rich on bass guitar and brass players Tobie Wynn, James Tatum, Bobby Rock, Pete Carter, and Tom Hall (now known as Khalil Shaheed).”
