Jimi Hendrix: A Shoddy Hendrix Record?

Michael Lydon, Rolling Stone, 20 January 1968

THE NEW Capitol LP, Got that Feeling: Jimi Hendrix Plays, Curtis Knight Sings, is not what it appears: Hendrix's latest release. The cover, with no liner notes and no dates, has a picture of Hendrix taken at the Monterey Pop Festival, but all the tracks were recorded before then and before Hendrix's fame and full artistic development. Some of them may be three years old.
