Description Band of Gypsys is more then a pop/rock record. the styles on this record include blues r&b funk rock metal and even hints of jazz.In my opinion this is Jimi's best guitar playing.

This is a must lsten to cd if you haven't heard this one yet.Here Hendrix lets his "freak flag" fly in all of its glory whether it's going thru the funky jam of "Who Knows" or showing his dark side on the epic "Machine Gun" this album is argubaly one of his greatest pieces of work and shoud belong in any guitarist's collection.

After the 1st,Axis,& Electric Ladyland, this was disapointing. Buddy Miles & Billy Cox were less than adequate & can't keep up w/ Jimi like Redding & Mitchell. I think because of them the album as a whole drags.

Excellent guitar playing by Hendrix. His best work IMO, especially if you like funk/R & B. That one note in Machine Gun still makes me cry every time I hear it.

Truthfully, when in the band of gypsies, jimi had the opportunity to let flow his most inner creativity, without the bars of constricting managers on image or sound to keep fans - he went all out, as with electric ladyland -
