    Nine to the Universe.....(Message from)





    Mesage From Nine to the Universe was first released in Brazil in late 1979 with a different title ,cover and song line up than it's US and UK vinyl counterparts.

    Warner Bros US/Canada released Nine to the Universe in March 1980.
    Highest chart position on Billboard Top 200 was # 127 and it lasted only 7 weeks.

    Released by Polydor Records in UK/worldwide in June of 1980.

    Produced by Alan Douglas.

    This is the third of the Alan Douglas "remake" projects and this time he did not wipe out the original musicians tracks taken from " jam" sessions Jimi recorded between March and August 1969.(except Devon's original vocal on Message) .During this time(1980) Douglas' lack of credibility was exposed as he self promoted himself and his protege John McLaughlin (whom Douglas both managed and produced) by claiming to have a tape of the 2 guitarists ,which turned out to be bogus and "of unreleaseable quality"

    Douglas would also promote this release as Jimi's move toward Jazz...but the only Jazz connection to the project was Larry Young who had played on Miles Davis' Bitches Brew

    I'm assuming this is a bootleg release: http://cgi.ebay.ca/JIMI-HENDRIX-MINI...item27bac79cdc? I'm not really buying (nor understanding) the story behind the CDs this guy's selling...

    Hi there trampledunderfoot,
    I should warn you about this guy,don't buy annything from him,because what he sends you is not the advertised item,but a CDR of the item with scanned & printed artwork. To keep his custommers from complaining he throws in another CDR of the artist with miscaleneous tracks. I got fooled this way 5 years ago also, with this so called "Nine to The Universe-Radio Promo" and looking at his feedback he's still at this fraudulent scheme. So if you'd like to buy a reasonable release of the Nine to the Universe tracks,I'd go for the "Message from Nine to the Universe" on reclamation records. (but don't tell Janie LOL) And there's also the ATM 55 with all the tracks complete, If you're interested send me a PM.
    all the best,
    Thunderbaas.

    Thanks for the offer and the warning, Thunderbaas! I actually already have both the ATM release and the Reclamation CD - both digital. I've seen the latter crop up on eBay every now and then...might pick it up eventually.

    I don't have a (physical) copy of the LP - hopefully I'll remedy that eventually - but I do have a fairly good vinyl rip.

    i like "message from nine to the universe" very much, one of the less "interfeared with" posthumous recordings.
    shame about that a**hole on e-bay taking the p**s out of good people.

    I got burned by this goof years ago as well-- the cdr was junk and the art work was crap (bubble jet quality). I reported him to Ebay as well as EH-- guess it didnt matter. Save your money and deal with someone else other than ebayer Rockybafoon
