The debut is the best.

One of the few albums I can play all the way through on both guitar & bass.

It's a phenomenal record.

Shit, just realized that there were two versions of the debut album: the International and North American versions.
The one I grew up on was this one:

The UK version included Red House, Can You See Me and Remember, and excluded Purple Haze, Hey Joe, and Wind Cries Mary.
Guess I'll have to get the cd with bonus tracks. :yes:

The UK version excluded what are arguably his 3 best known songs?  Wow.

Is it bad that I have only heard 3 or 4 songs?

Yes.

The coolest thing about Jimi Hendrix is that he was half-Canadian as his late father was born in Vancouver, BC from this 2010 Toronto Globe and Mail article here.

By the way, thanks to Tex for making this thread.  I had all but forgotten about Hendrix, but have been binging on his stuff since reading this thread.  Simply brilliant.

:cheers:

It's interesting to hear original founding member of Canadian band Max Webster and solo artist Kim Mitchell's take on Jimi Hendrix and his favorite album here, which I've time stamped.

Electric Lady Land. A long eclectic mix of a double album. Hendrix started out good but got better each time, I thought. I`ll hold out for Cry Of Love.
