Jimi Hendrix - Valleys Of Neptune

The Experience Hendrix people decided to release a few previously unreleased tracks from Jimi this week. Valleys Of Neptune is just a compilation of some unseen studio stuff, similar to what Nirvana did with a disc of their box set. This didn't really jump hugely out to me, but it's nice. There is some neat stuff on here, and any time Jimi lays down some guitar - you have to respect it and listen closely. No one in the world plays like Jimi did...and you can hear it in everything he does. A couple tracks are songs you've heard before, but just jam session type stuff. Pretty neat to hear this what, 40 years later? My only real pet peeve, is Sunshine Of Your Love is covered, but it's just instrumental. I would have loved to hear Jimi really cover Cream. Regardless, still a great jam track. Big kudos to his family for releasing this stuff, and keeping the legend alive.
