"Smash Hits" made its debut in 1969 at the height of Jimi Hendrix's
career. This year you can experience again all of those classic Hendrix
rock masterpieces in fabulous remastered form. It goes without saying…none
of these songs ever loses their appeal and timelessness, now to hear
them all like they were recorded just yesterday is quite a sensation.
New listeners are fortunate to come onboard and enjoy the Hendrix
legacy in such a bright new way.
The sound is just unbelievable; I noticed details in each song that
I have never heard before. Universal has done a wonderful job with
this set of songs, and they should be highly commended for their tremendous
efforts in bringing all of this music out in its full-unadulterated glory.
There have been countless bootlegs, greatest hits packages, and various
other sundry releases from the Hendrix archives. This is the real
deal and the very first hit collection that ever hit the racks of
your local brick and mortar store. If you already have the original
copy, put it to the side and listen to the difference on this CD, you will not believe it.
