Hi All !
First of all sorry for my english/united state language (lack of !) skills !
But this is not my childhood/parents speaking (french/spanish) !
As all of you i guess i'm crazy about guitarist :Jean (alias Django) Rheinardt, Wes Montgomery, Steve Ray Vaughan, Paco de Lucia and of course James marshall (alias Jimi) Hendrix ! are my favorites !.
But i'm also a audiophile lover . I hate bad sound recording that spoil the play of the artist.
For example if Django is a hell of a player & definitely the best french guitarist of all time [ try to play Jazz and "Manouche" music guitar without using 2 fingers of your burn left hand ( 2 years of treatement in an hospital in Paris when he was 20 ) and we talk again after !]
But sadly i cannot listen oftently (in fact rarely) because it's a pain for my ears to listen to those poor recording of the mid XXth century !! That _really_ sad ! ( not his death , we're all meant to die but the poor audiophilie technology of those years.
But that's not the point of my message here ! .
Yesterday ( i discovered this website recently ! i didn't know they were so many bootleg/unofficial recording of JH !) i DL a live recording call "The Jimi Hendrix Experience - 8.16.68 Columbia 2nd gen" .
Well the sound is just HORRIBLE ! despite the FLAC lossless format i just CAN'T understand such recording suit to somebody ear !.
It just mess up , waste the artist play !.
So i would like to know if they're somewhere a list of live recording ( bootleg or else )
of JH with sound quality check.
I understand that those recording were all made in the 60's wich is ...last century ( okay ..okay no discrimination beside i'm myself born in 64 !) so i'm not asking for a 24bits/92Khz DDD recording ! but just a good sound like those i already have like :
Live in Woodstock
Concert isle of Wight
Live at the Royal Albert Hall
Jimi Plays Monterey
Jimi Hendrix - Concerts (the one with a painting of JH of the cover) etc...
Those are quit good sound for my ( & i guess everybody ) ears !
Perhaps you're gonna ask why i crave those "live recording" ?? Simple :
like Janis Joplin, the genius of Jimi Hendrix just show up beautifully in those moment !
Too bad that i can't see in our century Artist that can even get close of those 2 !
Thanks for reading until here & for your information if you've got some !
