    A stray ‘The Th’ at the top of your article :-)

    Being a recent convert to jazz of the left field variety I think I`ll take a punt on the Herbie Hancock box, nice price too.

    Those of you haven`t got the Jimi Hendrix box and are tempted – get it, it`s great.

  3. colm47 says:

    As I am someone who bought the original Hendrix box set, I am a bit miffed, to say the least, that the money grabbing Hendrix estate have now added on 4 “new” tracks to tempt Jimi’s fans to purchase it again.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      I agree, that’s a bit annoying.

    • richie says:

      I wasn`t aware of the 4 new tracks, what are they?

    • Gisabun says:

      Ya. Considering they re-released it maybe a year ago in the old format.
      Miffed? Maybe. But with the amount of unreleased material lying around [look at the take numbers in some releases] you’ll never get everything. I didn’t compare but unless these 4 tracks are brand spanking new never before released songs, I really don’t care.
      The way they are cranking out material for a guy with a half dozen studio albums under his name…

  4. Phil Wilson says:

    The 4 new tracks were on the 2013 reissue, so this is a reissue of that, I suspect in smaller packaging.

  5. Michel D. says:

    I received an email from Amazon.co.uk that Supergrass’ I Should Coco was again delayed, to 9 October this time.

  6. bob says:

    Jimi Hendrix and Marc Bolan must have the most abused back catalogues of dead musicians ever. At least in the case of Hendrix the family controls the estate so presumably benefit financially, unlike Marc Bolan’s family. Absolutely shameful.

    • colm47 says:

      I agree with you re Marc Bolan, Bob. It’s a terrible treatment of Marc’s legacy and his family.

      Sadly, I think that what remains of Jimi’s family are selling as much as they possibly can in as many formats as they can.
