·  JIMI HENDRIX - THE CRY OF LOVEORIGINAL 1971 REPRISE RECORDS STEREO LP MS-2034

 

·       ORIGINAL U.S. PRESSING

 

 

·       *** WHITE LABEL PROMO ***

 

 

·       *** IN ADDITION,  THE PROMOTIONAL TIMING STRIP ON THE COVER CLEARLY IDENTIFIES THE ITEM  AS PROMOTIONAL ***

 

·       ORIGINAL TAN REPRISE RIVERBOAT LABEL WITHOUT WEA LOGO ALONG THE LABEL’S EDGE, WHITE PROMOTIONAL VERSION

 

·       The bidders should note that this is a rare Bob Ludwig-mastered “hot pressing” of this album, with his initials “RL” (Robert Ludwig) etched in the trail-off vinyl of the disc. All the wonderful elements of Bob Ludwig’s trademark mastering style are here: incredible clarity and balanced channel separation, vivid and spacious “ambience” sound, as well as wide dynamic and frequency range of the sound spectrum.  As is almost always the case with Bob Ludwig’s masterings, the Bob Ludwig-mastered pressings of this album are CONSIDERABLY rarer than the regular, non-Ludwig copies of this album.

 

·       THIS IS THE ORIGINAL, AUTHENTIC, FIRST U.S. PRESSING; THIS IS NOT A REISSUE, AN IMPORT, OR A COUNTERFEIT PRESSING.

 

·       ORIGINAL GATEFOLD COVER, MADE OF THICK CARDBOARD (AMERICAN STYLE) 

 

·       COVER HAS A NIFTY, TRANSPARENT 'HYPE' STICKER STILL AFFIXED TO THE FRONT PANEL

 

·       MATRIX NUMBER IN TRAIL-OFF VINYL (DEAD WAX) ENDS WITH '-1A/-1A'.  ON SOME LABELS,  SUFFIX '–1' DENOTES THE VERY FIRST, ORIGINAL PRESSING)

 

·       CLEAN, WEAR-FREE LABELS (BUT WITH PREVIOUS OWNER'S NAME WRITTEN ON ONE SIDE)

 

·       FAIRLY THICK VINYL PRESSING On the scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the least thick, and  10 being the thickest), we assess the thickness of the vinyl as 7.

 

·       As far as we know, this album is currently out of print and unavailable on Compact Disc, or in any other format (although the material itself has been repackaged in myriads of ways).

 

 (PLEASE SEE THE IMAGE OF THE COVER, LABEL OR BOTH, SHOWN BELOW)

(Note: this is a REAL image of the ACTUAL item you are bidding on. This is NOT a "recycled" image from our previous auction. What you see is what you'll get.  GUARANTEED!)

This is the final batch of recordings Jimi Hendrix completed before his death, and probably the last recordings he ever intended public to hear. His conversion from Fender to Gibson resulted in a clearer and sharper sound, which was much jazzier, but - alas - much less improvisational and spontaneous in nature. The songs assembled on this album are some of the finest he created during his all-too-short career. The songs are: Freedom - Drifting - Ezy Rider - Night Bird Flying - My Friend - Straight Ahead - Astro Man - Angel - In from the Storm - Belly Button Window. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s , as the legal battle between Jimi Hendrix’ family and his long-time manager Allan Douglas heated up, we experienced the arrival of two revisionist pieces of history: The first, Allan Douglas’ "Voodoo Soup" album , which purports to compile Jimi Hendrix’s final album in the shape the artist himself would have wanted - and the second, a few years later , titled "The First Rays of the New Rising Sun", issued by Hendrix’ estate , claiming exactly the same thing, sporting some nice sound and plain godawful pseudo-psychedelic cover which undoubtedly made Jimi make a triple salto-mortale in his grave. So far, nobody succeeded in ascertaining with any degree of certainty just exactly what Jimi Hendrix’s true intentions were and how his final album would have looked had he himself been involved in its release. What we do know is that this is the last Jimi Hendrix album and that it will never be issued on CD (or, for that matter, LP)  again, courtesy of Hendrix’ family members. Miss it now, and CRY (of love, or otherwise) LATER.

 

THE WHITE LABEL PROMO, RADIO STATION-, AUDITION OR DEMONSTRATION COPIES AND RELEASES (such as the one we have here) were often distributed to the radio stations before the record was released to the public, sometimes as much as four months ahead. These records are generally considered to be the "first among equals": the VERY FIRST generation and the VERY FIRST pressings of the particular title; a PROTOTYPE and the earliest known official pressing of the record.

·       CONDITION:

 

·       THE RECORD

 

(IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we  grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)

 

(a)          WE GRADE THE VINYL AS STRONG VG++. A few light abrasions  ARE VISIBLE, but they appear fairly  insignificant relative to the overall condition of the vinyl, and are only moderately visually distracting. For most part, the vinyl looks impeccable, without any MAJOR visual flaws or imperfections. Much of the original luster is intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.

 

(b)            The record is pressed on a RELATIVELY  thick, inflexible vinyl. This is NOT a thin, flimsy ('dynaflex' type),  vinyl, but not the thickest, most rigid vinyl, either.

 

(c)           White Promo Label version of this title is much rarer that a regular, commercially released, version of this title. We estimate that stock copies of this album outnumber promo copies by a ratio of at least 200:1.

 

(d)          Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!

 

 

·                               THE COVER

 

THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT VERY GOOD++ (VG++).

 

The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover:

 

-        Cover has some writing on its back side (name of the radio station KWLN) written in black marker, about 1 x 2 inches in size)

 

-        Cover has a small, round, sticker residue (small yellowish discoloration from the removed price sticker)

 

-         Cover has some ring wear.  On the scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the least, and  10 being the most severe), we assess the severity of ring wear as 3  (front side) and 5 (back side). Inside gatefold has some light ring wear as well

 

-         Visible shelf wear noted on the seams

 

-         Cover shows JUST A HINT of yellowing on both sides, apparently from aging.

 

-         Cover has two corners slightly worn / frayed / bent (just a beginning of the split seam)

 

 

NO OTHER VISIBLE FLAWS OR IMPERFECTIONS ON THE  COVER
