Loose Ends is a posthumous compilation album by American guitarist Jimi Hendrix, released in February 1974 in the United Kingdom. It was the fourth and last Hendrix studio album released posthumously by manager Michael Jeffery.
Jam 292" is great but the superior second take of this appears on the Blues collection. Other than that it's just running through stuff in the studio, never meant to be released.
This release was also repackaged in 1983 under the name The Jimi Hendrix Album on LP and cassette Contour Records, UK. Contents.
Loose Ends is a posthumous compilation album by American guitarist Jimi Hendrix, released in February 1974 in the United Kingdom.
Album by Jimi Hendrix. Coming Down Hard on Me Baby. I'm Your) Hoochie Coochie Man. Have You Ever Been (To Electric Ladyland). MusicBrainz: Loose Ends.
Some tracks from 'Loose Ends' (see? I'm refusing to call them songs, because some of them are not complete songs) are taken from previously released material, some are rehearsals that end with a fade-out, some are instrumental versions of known-songs, there's a blues standard. The blues standard is good old Willie Dixon's 'Hoochie Coochie Man' and it's decent, even if a bit sub-par in vocal delivery (Jim could had it better certainly). It ends with a fade-out, implying that a jam continued for who knows how long. That's the material we are dealing with here. It might be interesting to Hendrix fans who are interested in knowing how was Jimi working with his colleagues - it could be aimed at fans that are musicians, I guess. First a certain truck driver took his song and became famous, and then he experienced numerous butcherings of it.
