Hendrix in the West

Sealed - Brand new 2LP 180 gram vinyl with gatefold cover. Made in USA. Out of Print Since 1974, Live Classic is Fully Restored and Includes Five Previously Unavailable Bonus Tracks

Collection of 1969-1970 Performances Contains Definitive Renditions of 'Red House' and 'Johnny B. Goode'.

Legacy's Archival Restoration of Hendrix Catalog Continues: Uncork the Guitarist's Magic With This Splendid-Sounding Analog Pressing.

Includes Lavish Booklet Filled With Rare and Previously Unseen Photography from Legend Jim Marshall.

Legacy's unprecedented archival restoration of Jimi Hendrix's catalog continues with more treasures. Consisting of live material recorded at venues ranging from the Berkeley Community Theatre and the San Diego Sports Arena to the Isle of Wight Festival, Hendrix In The West captures the guitarist exploring new directions in sound during 1969-70. Robert Christgau, the Dean of American Rock Critics, called Hendrix's versions of 'Red House' and 'Johnny B. Goode' on this album 'definitive.''

Out of print in the US since 1974 and for more than two decades internationally, Hendrix In The West has remained one of the most requested albums by fans to return to the commercial marketplace. Mastered from the original sources and pressed on high-quality 180g vinyl, and up to the same stellar standards as Legacy's reissues of Hendrix's groundbreaking studio efforts, the record has never sounded or looked better.

The album's iconic cover features a classic Jim Marshall photograph of the guitarist, while a lavish booklet is filled with rare and previously unseen images captured by Marshall's distinctive lens. Moreover, listeners get to discover five previously unavailable bonus tracks that, believe it or not, add on to Hendrix's considerable legacy. In addition to the Chuck Berry cover, Hendrix also re-imagines the Beatles ('Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band') and Carl Perkins ('Blue Suede Shoes').
 
Don't miss this gem, back in print for the first time in decades!
