Funky Discography



If you have read this far and you are a "hendrix purist", you will hate this discography. If however you have an open mind about Jimi Hendrix and his music, I think that you will appreciate it. There are many "complete" discography’s of Jimi Hendrix available on the internet, just go to your favorite search engine and you will find dozens of Jimi Hendrix web sites which will have all the detail you seek.

In addition to the listing here there are several other detailed Hendrix album reviews here on the web site....

  • JIMI HENDRIX: LIVE AT THE FILMORE
  • The Very First FUNK Record - "Testify pt's 1&2" - Isley Bros/w Jimi Hendrx?
  • First Rays Of The New Rising Sun (the missing Hendrix album)...click here to check out the review !!

    The first part of this discography are the key albums which you can actually hear Jimi Hendrix making the transition from a “rock star” to a funkateer.

    "Band of Gypsies" 1&2 is the live recording of Billy, Jimi & Buddy playing at the Filmore East on New Year’s Eve, 1969. "Band of Gypsies 1" is a must have. The song "Who Knows" is a song which should have been a hit record. Machine Gun" is a great example of Jimi's power as a guitarist and is also a powerful political statement.

    "Cry Of Love" and "Rainbow Bridge" are two albums that Jimi recorded before his death and were released after he died. His intention was to release them both as part of a double album. "Rainbow Bridge" is probably my favorite Hendrix album. Unfortunately I don’t have any .wav files for Dolly Dagger or Pali Gap”, my two favorite songs on the album. If you have .wav files for either one.....I’ll take them & post them here so anyone reading this page can hear how badd those two songs are !!!


    "Doriella Du Fontaine" is an interesting EP, pick it up if you can. It features Jimi (playing guitar and bass), with Buddy Miles on drums. "Lightning Rod", who at that time was a member of the Last Poets, sings/raps on top of the playing of Jimi and Buddy. Some consider it the first "hip hop" recording !!!

    "Crash Landing" is an album hated by "hendrix purists" because of the controversial work done by producer Allen Douglas. Since Jimi was no longer around to supervise, Douglas made the bold move of “substituting” other musicians to play behind Jimi on several "incomplete" songs which appear on the album. The result is "hard core blues-FUNK" that would fit right in with say WAR or Johnny “Guitar” Watson. When this album was first released ity was an absolute shock to Jimi’s rock fans because it is so "black oriented", which is the real reason in my opinion they hate the album so much.

    I have also included the albums which made Jimi a "rock star". Despite what some of you may be thinking at this point, I like them as well. But they are very different from the first set. If you are a Hendrix fan you probably already own them all. If you are new to Jimi I would recommend starting with "Smash Hits" which is really sort of like a "greatest hits package" of all of the other "rock albums".
