    5-0 out of 5 stars Johnny Cash at His Best
    This is Johnny Cash at his best. With the bio-pic "Walk The Line" making the cable TV circuit (I've watched it on HBO at least three times in the last week), people are going to start searching out Cash's albums. If you're a fan, like I am, please direct them to this honest, insightful album. The music alone is well worth the small price of this CD, but with the additional gems such as the extra photos, liner notes, and Johnny's banter between and during songs, this is by far one of the 20th century's musical classics. June Carter's wit shines through, however briefly, and her voice is as lovely and true as Cash's. Don't mistake this for your run-of-the-mill country album. This is the Man in Black at his darkest, playing prison songs to approximately 2,000 inmates. This is Cash bringing entertainment and inspiration to hardened men who are probably smiling and laughing for the first time in years.
    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best CDs I own
    This CD is an absolute blast to listen to. Not only is each and every one of the songs great, this CD also includes some of the onstage interaction between Cash, his band, and his audience that really livens things up. And this CD has very, very good sound that has been digitally remastered for the best quality of this recording to date. Crank up the volume on a good sound system and you can hear the prisoners shout all kinds of funny stuff. All in all, a very good portrait of a great entertainer.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Lots of Fun
    It is ironic that even though this concert was given at a prison and most of the songs are about being destitute, this recording is fun to listen to. It really helps to have seen the movie, "Walk the Line." When you listen to the CD in the context of Cash's life and the reason he played at Folsom, this CD takes on a whole new dimension. I am not usually a fan of Country music, though I have been striving to care less about style and more about content, but this music has a lot of heart. It is not intricate, nor is it ingenious in its conception, but the passion is there. The only annoying thing is that if you are not careful, these songs get stuck in your head, especially "Folsom Prison Blues."

    Editorial Review

    Smothered by the indulgence of his rock star ranking, Jack White steps into the eccentricities of the supergroup, and at first glance, this seems to be a band where White's imposing presence could overshadow the rest. Not the case with these Raconteurs. Teaming with fellow Detroit songwriter Brendan Benson and Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler, the rhythm section from Cincinnati band the Greenhornes, White exhales a bit, deferring enough to his mates to make Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have!! Two thumbs up!
    THIS is a great album!! I've always been a nominal fan of The White Stripes, but I heard "Steady As She Goes" and it just stuck in my head and I knew I had to buy this CD, and what a great investment it was. I would highly recommend it. The White Stripes are great, but I can only take them in small doses, if you know what I mean. The Raconteurs are different. I can listen to this entire CD over and over.

    5-0 out of 5 stars wow!
    I came to Amazon awhile back and listened to a couple of tracks, didn't think much of it.A few weeks later, I had some extra cash and decided to buy it, as I love The White Stripes.From the first listen I was blown away. I had heard "Steady as She Goes" on the radio, but the rest of the cd lives up to that song, and surpasses it.Loved the vocals on "Hands," the Middle Eastern flair on "Broken Boy Soldiers," and the silliness of "Intimate Secretary."The rest of the songs are solid, with "Blue Veins" being one of Jack White's best songs ever.Don't know if this is a one and done thing, hopefully not!Saw an interview with Jack and Meg on the Charlie Rose Show, and this guy is for real.What he did with Loretta Lynn was amazing, and I'll buy pretty much anything in the future from him.

    5-0 out of 5 stars *****WOW*****
    Wow, this is one of the best cd's I have heard in years, not a bad track on here! There are elements of great bands (Zeppelin, Beatles) here but with a modern edge that makes this effort sound almost experimental.Check out Broken Boy Soldiers and Blue Veins, freakin' amazing!The beat on the title track is driving, raw and practically primal.Blue Veins is bluesy with a provocative edge.Run, don't walk to your favorite music store and buy this!Be warned, tho, this cd has teeth, once they sink into you, it won't let go. ...

    I am so glad that Apple finally has gapless playback in iTunes 7.0 because I can finally hear this album in the way it is intended: no gaps and seamless segue between songs. I will have to buy one of the new iPods to get the same effect mobiile-wise.
    5-0 out of 5 stars "Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way"
    'Dark Side of the Moon' marks the point where Pink Floyd were catapulted from being a decent size rock/psychadelic band with a healthy following, into the realms of musical immortality. This album is an astonishing and groundbreaking achievement in terms of both its musical, and lyrical content.
    5-0 out of 5 stars I wish I could give this less than 5 stars, but...
    it's too damn good.Dark Side of the Moon, perhaps more so than any other album in rock and roll history, tends to be liked because of a certain cool factor (possibly tied with Nevermind and Zeppelin IV).Every stoner and wannabe stoner will put this in their top 5 and say things like "It's a trip,maaaaan", while making to sure to wear a Dark Side T-shirt to let everybody know they have cool status.Nevertheless, I must give credit where it is due, and this truly is one of the most innovative and pleasing works of the past 50 years.In fact, the only Pink Floyd album that tops it IMO is The Wall, which I would rank as the single greatest album of all time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Essential"for Cash fans
    I have always loved Johnny Cash. He is defitnetly the best country music singer there ever was. This CD is an absoulutely perfectly done collection in honor of the artist's 70th birthday. It has all of his best songs,(but where's rusty cage?) From I Walk The Line to The Wanderer with U2. A great reprersentation of Cash's career. Buy this CD, you won't regret it.

    this is genuine drug addix muzak, come together is sexist theme, the sun king is slang for heroin, you only give me your funny paper is a hint at LSD use, so this spells out a terrible disgusting and bad influence on your clean mind. I have also always hated the cover and now I see why.
    5-0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get any better than this..
    The Beatles last album just happens to be their best. Only the Beatles could get together one last time, dispite all the personal acrimony and substance abuse, and deliver the ultimate timeless swan song.
    5-0 out of 5 stars plus one more star if you please.
    All I can tell you is that this is the way a swansong SHOULD sound.Even though they had major issues amongst each other at this time,they along with producer George Martin put out one hell of an album.This time around George Harrison came up with two of his best in "Something" and (my favorite song on the album) "Here Comes The Sun".Although John's heart wasn't truly in it,he still contributed "Come Together" and "She's So Heavy".Both songs are John Lennon classics .Paul's major additives were the infamous second side/second half medley,and a McCartney classic in "You Never Give Me Your Money" and it's reprise during the medley.It's mind boggling how a group can evolve from "I Want To Hold Your Hand" to "Here Comes The Sun" in six years.

    Although I don't own this album, my dad does and I listen to it all the time. Songs like "I'm Looking Through You", "Drive My Car", "Wait", and "The Word" rock! Other soft songs like "In My Life", "Nowhere Man", "Norwegian Wood", and "Michelle" are good to. So if you don't already have it, go out and get it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars RUBBER SOUL IS AS REAL AS IT GETS
    I purchased this album in 1966 and was blown away, but first had to readjust from the Fab's earlier works and learn to appreciate how different Rubber Soul was from Help, yet still analogous. I mean, we all knew it was the Beatles when I've Just Seen A Face (American release) leaped into our ears upon our first listen, but they had transcended their classic sound a year earlier, surpassing anything they or anyone else had come close to perfecting prior to Rubber Soul. I'm still marveled by these lads, who were in their early 20's during the time Rubber Soul was composed and recorded, and their incredible sophistication for only being barely out of their teens. It's always been difficult for me to listen to anything new without comparing it to their standards. I guess that's not a grumble. I was so lucky to be elevated to this level of music appreciation at such an early age that it has forever changed my manner of thinking. This is one heck of a classy album and my fave forever! It just keeps getting better with every listen. If I may borrow John's line - "In my life...I love them more!" ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Better known as the "White Album," this was meant to be the record that brought them back to earth after three years of studio experimentation. Instead, it took them all over the place, continuing to burst the envelope of pop music. Lennon and McCartney were still at the height of their powers, with Lennon in particular growing into one of rock's towering figures. But even McCartney could still rock, and the amazement on "Helter Skelter" was that he had vocal cords at the end. From Beach Boys knock-offs to reggae and to the unknown ("Revolution #9"), this has it all. Some records have Read more

    Hi, my name's Joao, I have heard anything by this group from Starclub in Hamburg sessions to Twickenham outtakes and beyond to the Ringo Rotogravure and Wings @ the speed of sound and although this bunch is familiar for burning holes in people's pockets with their trite melodies (i would suggest maladies) and nonexistant depth in lyrics (think: 'I once had a girl', 'one to three four can I have a little more' and for instance 'because you're sweet and lovely girl I love you').
    5-0 out of 5 stars The greatest album from the greatest band
    If I were trapped on a deserted island for eternity and could only have one album with me to pass the time, it would be the White Album. It is the most diverse, interesting and well crafted album ever made. The songs range from rock to country to surfer rock to heavy metal to folk to camp to progressive to the just plain weird. The unparelled songwriting genius of Lennon and McCartney is well on display here as is there obvious differences in style. Harrison also emerges on the White Album and showcases his best song ever "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". Some may point to "Sgt Pepper" as the Beatles crowning achievement, I point directly and emphatically to the White Album.

    If all documentation of music was destroyed (99% of today's music should be anyways)this album would be the only blueprint needed for an ALBUM.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely the best
    Even more than Pepper, I think this was the album that changed pop music forever. I was in the UK and a teen at the time, and I have to admit it took several listenings and a healthy dose of illegal srimulants to figure it out. Today the music is still revolutionary and I no longer need the stimulants (sniff) but it ranks as one of the best 5 albums of all time

    3-0 out of 5 stars Whose Top 10?
    I've no designs on being iconoclastic or a hater or anything like that, so before you read on, please understand that. I fully understand that Beatles fans can be a fanatically loyal bunch who back up their beliefs with scores of critical support from the "experts" who have annointed the Beatles as kings of rock and roll music and innovators of all sorts of styles, production values, and other musical milestones. One reviewer even had the audacity to say that this album was "unquestionably" one of the greatest works of art of the 20th century. Well, I certainly question it. Am I able to say that "Road to Ruin" by The Ramones is unquestionably one of the greatest works of art of the 20th century as well? Why not? It's all subjective no matter how much one wants to convey their expertise. This album is good but there are dozens I'd rather hear instead and that criterion alone is the sole one I use to rate albums. As with so much of the Beatles, a bit less of the excessive banner waving and veneration would be a nice change.

    Proving yet again their willingness to dice 'n' slice their burgeoning legacy into new--if not exactly fresh--product, the Fab Four Minus One have released this single-disc compendium of their No. 1 hits. Though obviously superfluous to the faithful (who may also find themselves quibbling over the precise definition of "No. 1 hit" and the exclusion of seeming contenders like "Please Please Me" and "Strawberry Fields"), newly arrived visitors from the Pleiades star cluster and other neophytes will find it a concise and generous (nearly 80 minutes) single-disc introduction to the band's career-spanning, unparalleled dominance of pop music in the 1960s. But beyond being a mere trophy case of commercial success (and it won't be hard to find critics who'll argue that these singles aren't even the band's best work), it's also a Read more

    I understand why the Beatles are the top sellers in rock music as they suck. They only made about two decent songs in their "Hey Jude" a pretty song, and "Ballad Of John And Yoko". The sixties was a horrible decade of rock music. I would have to be said that only very few good songs came out in the sixties, which one of them is Neil Young's "Down By The River".

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Cornerstone Of All That Came Behind It
    My title says it all.As a music historian, the release of this album is one of my top 10 moments in the history of recorded music, because it did something that only a handful of other albums ever did - it changed the entire industry.Until 1967, albums by "youth-oriented" artists were rarely more than collections of singles and never seemed to have much flow or continuity - in other words, nothing more than miniature greatest hits collections.But on June 1 of 1967, the Beatles changed everything.Other artists were expanding their horizons as well - the Beach Boys had released Pet Sounds, a bold experiment of sounds mixed with songwriting we had never realized was possible from a young artist.But the mammoth success of Sergeant Pepper would make other albums like this marketable - and it would lead to other recording stars to become artists as much as entertainers.
    1-0 out of 5 stars or better, none!
    One star is waaaaaaaaaaaay too much for this funny fart CD,
    1-0 out of 5 stars yes, you read right: ONE star
    Hi dear muzak lovers, yes, you read right: ONE star for this CD is ab-so-lutely enough, no actually it is over the top for try listening to this junk without dangerous mind-altering substatiaries and you're left out in the cold. NO ONE should even dare to attempt to digest this collection of laughable concoctions like Fixin' a Whole (drug related), She's leaving her home (because of a drug habit) and Within and without you (sexual lust caused by bad trip), Good morning (a wake up call to use drugs), LSD (need I say even more????)

    Editorial Review

    All hail the riff king! The Black Keys' guitarist/singer Dan Auerbach has the meanest way with a hook since Jimmy Page. He adds to his arsenal on the band's fourth full-length release, on which each track pounds its way into your skull with fuzzy, swampy fury. Less is very definitely more in Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney's world as the stripped-down guitar/drums attack smolders, burns, and then ignites without shifting into heavy-metal overdrive. But even with the occasional ballad such as "You're the One" slowing the momentum, this is an intoxicating blast of raw, thudding blues power. The duo impressively control the dynamics, raising and lowering the tension in a yin-yang struggle of ominous, greasy, heavy blues-rock that never sounds forced. With the exception of a few subtle but effective overdubs, this is the sound Auerbach and Carney heard in the drummer's basement studio where the music was recorded. Like the best rock and roll, the disc exudes a dark, cramped claustrophobia and foreboding sense of danger, just like wandering through a haunted house, unaware of what is behind the next corner. It's the main ingredient in the band's deceptively simple yet potent formula that creates this addictive, compelling, and often intense album. Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Unadorned rock and roll
    The Black Keys are one of my favorite rock and roll bands with their garage band minimalism tempered by touches of blues and psychedelia. But I was a little surprised when the band signed to the eclectic Nonesuch label and wondered how this would affect their sound. Well, I needn't wonder at all as this album was literally recorded in a band member's basement and keeps the same raw and exciting sound as the bands previous work. Most of the songs are kept short and sweet with blistering blues based guitar and basic drumming giving way to melodic hooks like in "Your Touch" which is very catchy and has elements of pop without compromising their rough and tumble sound.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Magic Potion
    Focus: that's the element that seems to be missing from The Black Keys' latest long-player, their fourth album in all. The blues-rockin' riffs, courtesy of Dan Auerbach, are present and correct, and Patrick Carney's drums are rarely less than suitably bombastic, but Magic Potion suffers, rather, from alarming dips in concentration. For every romper-stomper of a four-minute fuzz-soaked foot-stamper, there's a meandering exercise in mediocrity just around the metaphysical bend.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Magic indeed...
    Unlike many of the other reviewers here, this is the first Black Keys album I have heard, and I was extremely impressed.The vocals remind me of a mix between Bob Dylan, Led Zeplin, and Jimmi Hendrix and the guitar work is absolutely amazing.Many of the reviewers here stated that this album may not be as good as their previous releases; if that statement is remotely true I will be buying every one of their cds.After hearing the first 3 tracks I knew instantly that this band will be one of my all-time favorites.Do yourself a favor and check this out.I highly recommend this album. ...

    This is a great and smart collection. Just look at the selection of songs you get, Monster Mash, Ghostbusters, Purple People Eater, The Addams family theme, Twilight Zone and my new favorite The Martian Hop. I never heard the Martian Hop before even though it's from the early 1960s, pretty catchy song. It's a great cd and unlike other compilations that have movie themes this one has the actual real legit songs. That's the real Monster Mash song by Bobby Picket, that's the real beginning to the Addams Family show and that's the real RayParker Jr. singing Ghostbusters. It would be nice if they had more songs but you'll still be glad you bought this cd when you have company over for a party come October or Halloween Night.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Music Sung by the People that Made them Great!
    A CD of fun, & silly Halloween music that you can enjoy because it's the recordings of the original singers, not the original singers brother's cousin's hairdresser's aunt.If you like Dr Demento type music, then you'll love this! My kids enjoy it as well.The 2 best songs are of course, Monster Mash and Martian Hop.Give it a try!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest Album of all time.
    I'm not sure if I like the new cover art, but this album will stand the test of time as being the greatest piece Rock n' Roll ever. I havn't heard this version but I'm sure that the audio is just fine for your average listener. The great audiophiles of the world can disect the sounds to death, but if you turn it up (on a decent stereo) I'm sure it sounds better than on vinyl. Who are these people with super hearing anyway?? Are they memebers of the canine family??

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sounds great, to me
    I don't understand what everyone's gripe is about the sound of this disc, I think it sounds really great. Anyway, "Dark Side Of The Moon" is a masterpiece by Pink Floyd, it really captures their brilliance. I would not hesitate to recommend this version to anyone looking for "Dark Side Of The Moon", it's as good, if not better than the original recording. I'm pleased with it, all of the songs are great, though I think "Money" and "Brain Damage" are my favorites. But, it's all great. Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the music - 1 for the format
    The "Dark Side of the Moon" is one of the greatest musical contributions of the twentieth century. This truth makes a 5.1 surround sound release long overdue. While looking for a surround sound home theater, I was conscious of getting an SACD compatible unit so that I could specifically listen to this disc. I shopped around at a few stereo stores. None of the salesmen that I spoke with had even heard of SACD. After seeing no units identified as SACD compatible, I purchased a system and hoped for the best. As it turns out, no luck. This release will not play surround sound music in a regular DVD based surround sound theater. While there is supposed to be a format war between SACD and DVD-Audio, it seems that DVD-Audio is winning and SACD is quickly joining the fate of Beta video cassettes. With hindsight, DVD-Audio would have been a superior choice of technology for this 1973 classic.The only way most of us will ever hear the "Dark Side of the Moon" in surround sound is by listening to the live version on the "Pulse" DVD. That written, there's little loss since this hybrid disc plays like a regular CD. I am also baffled by the audio technician wannabee reviewers. To my ears, this disc sounds exactly like the existing audio releases. I'm sure this information is buried someplace within the 298 reviews. I didn't care to read through 50 pages of reviews for a single disc purchase and you probably don't either. Thus I thought I'd pass this along for those especially interested in the surround sound aspect of this release. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Elvis, it's the wonder of YOU !!!
    Elvis Presley died too young; but his music and his gift to us will live forever. This CD boasts a whopping 30 number one hits recorded by Elvis. This is not merely an introduction to Elvis or a standard retrospective of his work; this CD is also a celebration of Elvis' talent and the wonder of Elvis sharing his artistry with all of us.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Elvis on Vinyl
    I always enjoyed listening to Elvis growing up. My parents were shattered when he died in August 1977. Mom especialy enjoyed Elvis and thru that enjoyment I grew up listening to him in our home. This compilation is an excellent package for seasoned fans as well as newcommers to enjoy the magical legacy that Elvis has given us
    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Talented Entertainer.
    As well as being the most successful performer of all time ,Elvis Presley is also the most ridiculed.In the end though, all that will matter is the musical legacyhe left behind. Of all the 800+ songs that he recorded there are only a handful that could be considered trash. As well as the standard hits which are found on this album , there is a abundance of rarer tracks to be found on box sets and the "Follow That Dream " BMG label which caters to the fans who have to have everything!. Elvis was probably the most versatile singer of all time and because of his willingness to try styles that other singers wouldnt even attempt , we are left with magical music to satisfy us for a long time to come.Long Live The King!!. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Covers the basics, but Legacy: The Absolute Best is a better comp
    Okay, don't get me wrong, I love the Doors - they made some of the greatest American music (along with Dylan and the Velvet Underground) during the British Invasion days, and their music has not dated in the least. And this two-disc, nineteen-track comp does do a good job of rounding up the bare essentials (Light My Fire, Break On Through, The End, Love Me Two Times, The Unknown Soldier, Five to One, Hello I Love You, Touch Me, Roadhouse Blues, Riders on the Storm, L.A. Woman), it's missing some very important songs, most notably Peace Frog (an inexcusable omission), plus Soul Kitchen, Not to Touch the Earth, Moonlight Drive, Twentieth Century Fox, Back Door Man and a few other good ones that managed to make it on Legacy: The Absolute Best. And why Alabama Song was included in the place of any of the above songs is simply inexcusable - in my mind, that's one of the group's weaker songs (along with Touch Me, while I'm ranting). That said, it's not at all a bad way at all to get into the Doors, and tends to be less expensive than Legacy. So if you need the absolute basics, and nothing more, this would be a good way to get them in one fell swoop. But if you want to dig a bit deeper, that's what Legacy's for.

    2-0 out of 5 stars For your own good, please don't buy this!
    This two disc set just barely brushes the surface of what the Doors have to offer.Here are some awesome, essential Doors songs you'll be missing out on, just to name a few:

    The "Lizard King" was a hero of the "counterculture" until 3/1/1969.Then, he turned into a cowering wimp!!!When it came to assaulting traditional American values, the "Lizard King" was awesome.See: the Ed Sullivan Show, the Singer Bowl riot, his Oedipal days at the Whiskey, etc.However, when the powers that be finally decided to push back, the "Lizard King" became a professional victim-a misunderstood artist who simply had "something to say."He whined about how everyone was out to get him.That's why the "conterculture" failed.They were good at pushing, but, when it came to pushing back, they were exposed for what they were: a bunch of bed-wetters.Thirty-eight years on, it's no surprise that America never "broke on through."Hey Ray, John, and Robbie: your fearless leader turned into a gutless turd!!! ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Okay, but Let It Be Naked is what you want...
    When George Martin was asked if he wanted his name as the producer of this album, he reffused. I can't blame him. The Beatles intended Get Back, or Let It Be, as it was finnished, to be pure rock without overdubs and that junk. Thanks to Phil Spector and his "Wall of Sound", this back to the basics album was ruined. Although it wasn't that good for beginers, some of these songs would have been better. Then,in 2003, the seldom played Let It Be Naked... was released, the way it was intended. If you want REAL Beatles' music, buy Let It Be Naked... and get your money's worth.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Beatles let loose
    I've always thought that the "Get Back" sessions were one of the most fascinating periods of the Beatles' history. The back-to-basics concept; the infighting; the iconic rooftop concert; the multiple attempts to create a finished album from dozens of songs and hours of aimless tapes; the treasure trove of bootleg material that surfaced years later. The album that finally did emerge from the sessions, "Let It Be," is as intriguing a document as any other produced by the band. The Beatles have such a reputation for perfectionism that it's refreshing to hear them let loose and bash out a few jams. And despite the palpable strain of the sessions (captured in the "Let It Be" film), their musical partnership was still strong and capable of producing amazing collaborative efforts.

    The title of this 2-CD Kinks compilation says it all,'Ultimate Collection'.Total of 48 tracks for our listening pleasure. Sound quality is over the top, which is to say it is simply S-U-P-E-R-B! The FM radio hits you all have 'etched' in the back of your minds like I do are all here,like "You Really Got Me", "All Day And All Of The Night", "Tired Of Waiting For You" (my personal Kinks favorite), "Sunny Afternoon", the so-so "Come Dancing" (I like the video better than I do the song), "Lola"," Mr. Pleasant" and the unforgetable "Celluloid Heros". Just all around great British Invasion rock&roll. A must-have.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best of all the Kinks' greatest hits compilations
    This is a quality double CD that tracks the history of one of the most talented and influential groups ever, not just of the 60's and 70's. There are some great "B" sides with all of their major hits included. There are a few songs left out that, if included, would have made this an even better collection - Misfits, 20th Century Man, Destroyer, Low Budget come to mind. But the Kinks have such a vast repertoire' I guess only a boxed set of 3-4 CD's could contain the entire depth and span of their music that many of us would like. But this is a gem for what it is.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Compilations Ever For Any Band
    This cd, which I have been looking for for ages, is a truly awesome collection of all The Kinks' best stuff. These two discs contain just about everything you need if you only want one Kinks cd in your collection. Everything from "You Reallly Got Me" to "Lola" to "Celluloid Heroes" to "Come Dancing" and so much more is included. There's a great wealth of lesser known tracks (including some Dave Davies solo material) that are just as good as their biggest hits, there's a great essay for the liner notes and the sound quality is pitch perfect.

    Oh WOW what a CD 20 musical gems by the late and great Jimi Hendrix. It has all the famous radio hits like "Purple Haze", "Fire", "Voodoo Child", etc. And it also has the underated gems that you will never hear on the radio like "Castles Made Of Sand" and "Bold As Love". If you are new to Jimi or experienced this is the CD for you. You will love it. The best part though has to be the original recording of the "Star Spangeled Banner" at Woodstock. That one song alone makes it completely worth the price. Buy It Today!

    If any music lover wishes to break into the works of Jimi Hendrix then this CD is the perfect place to start.
