Jimi Hendrix – The Collector’s 1970: Studio, Private, Related & Remixed Recordings

The Collector’s 1970:
Studio, Private, Related & Remixed Recordings

Hey gang, I have a little request to make. I have this massive 375 track set from Hendrix filled with lots of cool stuff. Trouble is I’m not overly familiar with Hendrix and what’s been officially released. From the looks of this set it seems like its a lot of unofficial b-sides and outtakes, etc. I’m happy to post it but if most of it has seen an official release then I don’t want to deal with it. So if any of you are Hendrix superfans and want to dig through the track list to see if its ok to post I’d really appreciate it.

I’ve uploaded a PDF that includes all relevant info which you can download here. The track list and notes are too big to even post directly to my blog as it would just look like garbled goop.

Anyways if it is cool to post (or if the majority of it is ok and I can trim out whats not) then I’ll do it. Thank you.

From the original uploader:
This release clears up a lot of speculation about the Beatlesí Star Club tapes, thanks to an unedited and unprocessed source tape (for which we cannot thank DarthDisc and the Darthelves enough). Although the recording dates are still guesses, we now know the correct order for about 2/3 of the songs. Even so, the second half of disc one is sequenced based more on smooth transitions than solid setlist information.

We tried to make sure every Star Club sound was accounted for, but not repeated: auditioning many Live At The Star Club CDs and LPS on a number of labels. Even so, we used Darthdiscís unprocessed tape wherever possible. As well as offering upgrades and previously unheard chat Red Hot, though still incomplete, is twice as long as before. ìRed SailsÖî now has an extra verse compared with the released version, while “I Saw Her Standing There” on disc two has an extra guitar solo. Conversely, we removed looped portions of “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down”, “Twist And Shout” and “I Remember You.”

It’s by no means perfect, but itís the best we have at the moment. And it’s the first time we’ve listened to the Star Club tapes in years. Hopefully you’ll gain a new appreciation for these historic recordings as well.

All tracks mono, at the correct speed, and eq’d for the most coherent listening experience. Enjoy!

Here’s why the original updates:

The full third version of “A Taste Of Honey” magically appeared, just after Star Club came out. It turns out that some dialogue that we placed on disc one belongs just before it. So we cut it out of disc one, put it at the end of “Hippy Hippy Shake” and did a minor tweak to “Money” just for the sake of continuity. A change of the info file and inside artwork to reflect this, and we’re all done.

I’m Back From Vacation


As mentioned in a comment a few days ago I spent the last couple of weeks in Glacier National Park. It is a spectacularly beautiful place and if you ever get the chance to go I highly recommend it. For once, before I trotted off on vacation, I actually managed to pre-load some shows to post throughout my absence. I hope you enjoyed them, and this does explain why there were some screw ups that took time to get fixed. Sorry about that.

I’ve been back since Friday night which is why you are seeing the uptick in the number of posts coming in each day. There is lots of cool stuff coming up so sit back and enjoy the tunes.
