Review by Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck
4 stars out of 4

"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.
