Oh, I understand you completely. It's been my love, too!
Too bad Jimi never had the chance to finish it.
We can't even imagine how would the finished "product"
sound if Jimi did have time to put that magical final touch of his....

yes, same here. When I recorded the Hendrix tribute with John Marshall Gibbs, that was one of our fav songs. we compiled our own version from the different boot versions floating around. I will upload it in the Memberīs Music forum, check it out....

Well, Jimi did made some recordings with GS&R bad in September 1969
(Hit Factory) but all these takes so far are unreleased (as I remember it).
All Valleys of Neptune takes released so far are from June-July 1970
period, including session(s) on this disc.
In fact, even this artwork is quite old, all the dates seem to correct.

P.S.
Upssss, I did edit the artwork a little
(you have the original as a part of this torrent)
but only track listing not the dates.

I believe that this disc here has versions not from 1970, I canīt be too sure about the dates in the info file, but soundwise, I would place them in 69 as well, at least some of them.. the well know full band versions supposedly from June 24th 70, are already well shaped and rehearsed takes, and it would not make sense to me why Jimi should sit down with Billy to learn the song from scratch just two days later. To me these takes sound like Shokan actually....but who knows

this disc has a nice variety of Valleys versions....

Mods, please take special notice about these exemplary guys:

User: lachacore - Ratio: 0.03 - uploaded 1.52 MB - left after less than 10 hours
User: Flexpoint - Ratio 0.04 - uploaded 6.56 MB - left after less than 10 hours

That's an example how a "good" trader should care about his ratio (!).

P.S.
Uh, nearly forgot our "Cane" fan:
raoulduke711 - Ratio: 0.08 - uploaded 57.00 MB and, of course, already long gone.

This torrent is definitely sourced from 128 to 160 kbps MP3 files, i am sorry to say.
I noticed something was up when i realized i had an mp3 verion of the same album, with the same spelling errors and track idiosyncrasies (i.e. disc 2 starts at #20 instead of #1)
Being on a mac, i haven't got the rstandard file checking tools, but there is an almost foolproof way to test..
convert both the lossless file (you'll have to convert flac to aiff first) and the MP3 to Apple lossless.. ALC calculates bit rates according to the amount of audio info in the file, so in principle, a 128 kbs mp3 should come out at no more than 60 % of the bit rate that a lossless copy of the same file will come out at.. i.e if the 128 kbs mp3 converts into a 600 bit ALC, the lossless AIFF should come out with a 900 kbs ALC..
This is nopt perfect, inasmuch as incrteasing the amplitude of a file will also increase the amount of music information , so the ALC will also be modestly bigger.

howebver, in this situation, there is only a difference of 2 to 3 points between the 128 kbs mp3 files, and the supposed lossless files in this torrent.

you'll notice the spread is only about 8 points..
In my experience, 6-700 kbs Apple lossless tend to result from 128-160 kbs mp3...

sorry....
