Three songs are not Hendrix songs at all, with no vocals by Jimi - $20 Fine, Georgia Blues, and Woodstock. This version of Georgia Blues has already been released and is a Lonnie Youngblood song. $20 Fine and Woodstock are Stephen Stills songs with Jimi only contributing bass guitar on Woodstock! Three instrumentals with no vocals from Jimi - Jungle, Sweet Angel, and Cherokee Mist. Jungle was already released in a full 9 minute version, but here we get a 3 minute version. That's half of the songs on the album without Jimi singing a note. Lover Man, Hear My Train A Comin' and Mannish Boy have all been previously released in superior versions. Lover Man & Hear My Train' A Comin' were both released as even more complete studio versions on the album the released just a few years back, Valleys Of Neptune and have appeared on 3 out of the 4 "studio albums," they've released. Mannish Boy appeared in a superior version on the Blues album they have not only released and has much more heart & soul in the performance as a whole, although Jimi fumbles a few words. Things I Used To Do & Send My Love To Linda have been chopped up, badly. Things I Used To Do was released in a complete version on the Lifelines boxed set. The Both Sides Of The Sky version chops the song nearly in half, deleting 2 minutes and 30 seconds of the performance. Send My Love To Linda is a composite that has Eddie Kramer combing a solo demo version of the song with numerous chopped up takes of a later instrumental performance, which to many is not very flattering. It is still listenable. Power Of Soul & Stepping Stone - Stepping Stone is an excellent alternate version of an already definitively released studio song, but has no place on a "new studio album." Power Of Soul is great to have, but this exact version was already released by Experience Hendrix just a couple of years ago.
