Great Introdution to Jimi's Stuff
Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice is a neglected Classic that appeared on Track Label's Backtrack Series and wasn't on the initial albums.B-side to the "Burning of the Midnight Lamp" single.

Absolutely.
But all the greats ARE there.EXCEPT the greatest of them all - the mind-blowing No.1 - VOODOO CHILE (Slight return)
Therefore, I'll give it a miss.

Funny That's My Fave Hendrix Track - Hated it when I first heard it but can't stop playing it nowadays and the full version on Electric Landlady I Mean Ladyland

It's about 20 songs too short but worth 2.99. 'Voodoo Chile'?, 'Crosstown Traffic'?, 'All Along the Watch tower'? where?

Likewise. I find it amazing that these Greatest Hits/Best Of albums always miss out on my favourite track by the artist. I wait for the utopian album to come out with all of my favourites !

I was wondering about this too, so I did a little digging, and it turns out that the answer is that they aren't on it because they hadn't been written yet. All of the songs you list there are from Electric Ladyland, which was released some six months after this came out.

Ahhhhh Thanks dxx Now I understand

Worth it for track 8 alone.

True statement. Best track on the CD/LP.

Yes Glad to see it wasn't only me that loves track 8 Stars That Play
It's a neglected classic .
