RECORD STORE DAY 2017 COUNTDOWN: DAY 2
April 11, 2017
April 22 is the tenth anniversary of that very special day in the music calender, when we celebrate not just the fine independent record stores all across the land but the dark, crackling warmth of vinyl itself.
Sony Legacy have plenty of exclusives for you and we’re counting down to the day itself one limited edition, specially coloured, picture disc at a time…
Curtis Knight + Jimi Hendrix – ‘Live At George’s Club 20’
‘Live At George’s Club 20’ collects raw amateur live recordings of Jimi Hendrix performing with Curtis Knight, made in December 1965 and January 1966 — just months before his discovery in Greenwich Village by Animals bassist Chas Chandler. These raucous blues and soul recordings represent the closest approximation to what Chandler heard when he first spotted Hendrix at the Café Wha?. Never before officially released in America, Jimi’s primal guitar, compelling voice and engaging persona are evident throughout spirited versions of classics by Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Ray Charles and others.
This specially priced, two LP offering from Dagger Records, the official bootleg label created by Experience Hendrix, presents the original recordings restored by Eddie Kramer and free of various overdubs and excess manipulation present on earlier, unsanctioned releases.
