“Communication is coming on strong.
I don’t give a damn if your hair is short or long”

The official site first of course:

Check out the “MEDIA” section (under Diffusions Concerts and Videos Hendrix) to listen to unreleased concert recordings (hours of the stuff!).
These are from amateur audience tapes, so they have poorer sound quality than soundboard or multi-track recordings.

There are a few promo videos to be found also + various Hendrix themed radio shows, interviews
and links for purchases of music, videos and merchandising.



If you are looking for opinions about the sound quality of the various CD and vinyl releases over the years,
then check out these informative discussions at Steve Hoffman Forums:

Unbeleivable. Musician Jim Hendricks teamed up with Casse Elliot and … TIM ROSE to form The Big 3,
a mid sixties folk trio ! In 1966, Rose released his own solo interpretation of “Hey Joe”, which inspired Jimi to parform it.
Talk about a cosmic coincidence..
