JIMI HENDRIX - Cosmic Feeling (1981)Released on Accord
Added Sunday, January 31, 2010
Cosmic Feeling consists of more practice tapes of Hendrix’s. The song credits however show that most of these are Hendrix compositions, so I’m not sure which sessions they come from. Most are unremarkable instrumentals that sound like they were recorded in a small room with plenty of echo. Amidst all the mediocrity however, comes the funky Blues composition You Gave Me Love with the Hendrix’s playing off the harmonica. Jimi’s singing comes in half way through. The last track, Young Generation has, I think, Lonnie Youngblood singing over an upbeat RnB number with female back-ups. It’s too bad that the music is far in the background in the mix.
