The Smash Hits for 6.99 is a reissue. I don't know if it's remastered or not. It has a lot of the popular stuff but I'd probably go with the disc that came out like a year ago.

As for the song that Hulk walks out to that is is "Voodoo Chile".

Once you get into Hendrix you must check out the Blues album as well as Band of Gypsies. Sweet music.

Getting into Hendrix will open a whole new world of music for you. Get a greatest hits and if you like it post back to theis thread, because honestly his best stuff would never be found on a greatest hits album. Those are just songs that people identify him with.

my only problem (with the radio versions) that a lot of jimis vocals only come in one speaker, which can be a little annoying.

More than likely. A lot of stuff in the 60's was mixed hard to the left or right like that. I think they were just showing off that it was actually stereo. the beatles did this a lot too.

all of the Hendrix discs I have are this way.
Still, IMO, the lyrics aren't the most important part. I listen to Jimi for the guitar.

Personally, I'm not a fan of greatest hits albums. IMHO, the best place to start is "Are You Experienced". After that pick up "Axis: Bold as Love", then "Blues".

There are still plenty more after that, but those three are the best (again, IMO)

I could be wrong but if I'm thinking of the same car/truck commercial as you that was actually Stevie Ray Vaughan's rendition of Voodoo Chile. Just to clear the air. Although I could be wrong.

I have Ultime Experiance. It's worth it for Sand Castles, but it also has Vodoo Child and the Star Spangled Banner Live at Woodstock.

I believe what BigJim25 is referring to is that the "Smash Hits" disc is only $6.99 because of the tiny song selection, hence "you get what you pay for". You'd be better off going for "Experience Hendrix: Best of Jimi Hendrix" (or the "Ultimate Experience" if you can find it, it's OOP), 'cause the live disc on the "Voodoo Child" set isn't very necessary. Once you get into Hendrix, you'll probably pick up his actual albums and live sets thereafter, anyway.

Nothing, I just meant you'd get more for your money buying a CD with more songs.
I'd go over to half.com and get a used copy of the OOP The Ultimate Experience with 20 songs (around 72 minutes) for under $9 shipped.
