TRIVIA: The Seattle-born guitarist recorded most of these 12 tracks in 1969, when he was at his creative peak, working on the follow-up to Electric Ladyland.
STANDOUTS: The lead single and title track, Valleys of Neptune, has been sought after by Hendrix fans for decades. They wont be disappointed.
FANS DIG: Billowy shirts.
ANDY SAYS: Love him or not, no one can deny Hendrixs furious skill, which is on full display on this collection. Valleys of Neptune finds the guitarist balancing strong original material like that lead single with admirable covers, including one of Creams Sunshine of Your Love.
