  • Just spun my HENDRIX Smash Hits remaster LP for the first time

    Just finished playing Jimi Hendrix Smash Hits RSD Remastered LP for the first time and I must say I'm satisfied. While I don't have an original pressing to compare it to, it sounds pretty damn good to me ( despite some early bad reviews and rumours of digital processing ). The guitar has excellent bite, there is good macro dynamics, maybe a touch lean on bass on a few cuts but not all. My pressing is #177, its flat, and its quiet. The highlight of this record is "Red house" in stereo, and it sounds fantastic.

    I don't remember the original as a great record, but as mentioned, I have a couple old copies, so I can clean one and fire it up. Red House- do you have Hendrix in the West- the UK Polydor is the way to go- long version, live. Jimi apparently didn't play much straight blues live- the audiences wanted the hits. Too bad.

        I have to recommend "Hendrix in the west" on UK, Polydor, its one of the best originals of his music that I have it in my collection.
        It should be possible to find, I found mine in Germany.
        Here one closer to home for you

          I bought a copy a while back that claimed it was a Classic reissue. I don't remember Classic reissuing it though and wasn't readily identifiable as a Classic release. But Classic did reissue a boatload lot of Hendrix recordings.

            I will prefer the original record in nm over a reissue.
