Description

Offered for sale is an early U.S. pressing of Hendrix in the West by Jimi Hendrix.

About this copy: This copy of Hendrix in the West is an early, and possibly original, pressing on the Reprise label of this 1972 LP.

The cover is VG+, with edge and corner wear.

The disc is VG+ on side one, with a few scuffs from the original paper inner sleeve, but no significant marks.  Side two is VG, with the same scuffing and a couple of light scratches through “Blue Suede Shoes.”

A nice  playcopy of a terrific Jimi Hendrix live LP.

Background: Released in 1972, Hendrix in the West reached #7 on the UK charts and #12 in the U.S. where it was certified gold by the RIAA.

Allmusic.com gave Hendrix in the West a 4 star review:

 Yes, it’s a hodge-podge, made of live tracks largely from 1969 and 1970. But it’s a bunch of great live tracks, including some real rarities. The opening sequence of “God Save the Queen” and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” is rare and excellent in itself, and Hendrix’s intro is hilarious (he was a truly funny guy). “Little Wing” and “I Don’t Live Today” (not on the original LP) were also live rarities for Hendrix, but not as rare as him covering “Blue Suede Shoes” or “Johnny B. Goode” (an absolutely blistering version that might top Chuck Berry’s).
