    Subject: Great Guitar
    Date: Nov 2, 2006
    Sender: GlennPrevious

    The blue wild angel dvd is a great movie in the fact that it documents a very important festival at the peak of great music. However, the quality of the songs is mostly poor. The guitar playing is amazing and perfect, but we see that Jimi was not the greatest of singers. He seems to forget the words, probably because he is so dropped out on acid, and Mitch Mitchell is not all that great at keeping time for some songs. The documentary type build up to the concert was nice, because it shows the viewer that the concert was more than just hitting the right notes and sounding good, it was about portraying feelings through the music. Overall, it was a great performance on the guitar by Hendrix, but not the greatest singing. I have no idea why anyone would buy this on CD. Electric Ladyland might as well be a live CD, because it was recorded while the band played for their friends. That is a great CD and it doesn't sound like the band is all drugged up. The lesson is don't buy live Hendrix CD's, unless you just want to hear the guitar.
