Jimi Hendrix - Gypsy Sun and Rainbows - Studio Tapes (STU/FLAC)

 


(Studio FLAC)

A 3-disc collection of available studio recordings from the Gypsy Suns and Rainbows. These recordings date from late August to mid-September 1969, a period of a little over two weeks. The recordings all likely took place at the Hit Factory except for the last track (from the Record Plant). Shortly afterwards Jerry and Larry left the group, and the ensemble that played at Woodstock was only a memory.

There's nothing unexpected in this collection; all of the tracks are readily available on scores of discs. The versions included here are the best quality copies circulating, and they've been checked and corrected for technical issues including pitch, phase offset, and digital errors.

Together with the Shokan tapes and the complete Woodstock live concert, these complete the coverage of the brief existence of the GSR.
