This is a great album, allthough "Axis:Bold" as Love is my favorite Jimi Hendrix album. "First Rays" has alot of overdriven guitar in it, with alot of great licks. The songs are nice, and show some of the Jimi's best lyrics. Alot of the songs have an r&b feel, like Wilson Pickett or Otis Redding theres also alot of funk stuff like Jimi played in the Band of Gypses..
There are also good showings of the wah-wah pedal, so if you want to hear some wah-wah stuff.
Overall, I would suggest this for fans of Jimi, get "Axis:Bold as Love", "Electric Ladyland", or "Are you Experienced?" if you are starting out with Jimi Hendrix and don't have any of his albums.
