Notes

The Cry of Love is a posthumous album by American rock singer-songwriter and guitarist Jimi Hendrix. Recorded primarily in 1970, it features new material that Hendrix was working on for his planned fourth studio album before his death later that year. While most of the songs were included on proposed track listings by Hendrix, the final selection was made by recording engineer Eddie Kramer and drummer Mitch Mitchell, with input from manager Michael Jeffery. Hendrix, Kramer, and Mitchell are credited as the album's producers, with Jeffery as the executive producer.
Released on March 5, 1971, by Reprise Records in the United States and Track Records in the United Kingdom, The Cry of Love was successful on the record charts in both countries and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in 1998. Critics responded favorably to the album, viewing it as an impressive tribute to Hendrix. Several of its songs were later featured on other efforts to recreate the album Hendrix had been working on, including Voodoo Soup in 1995 and First Rays of the New Rising Sun in 1997.

      Great sounding record. Vinyl from these days just sounds better than today even if all analog, 99% of the time. Has important songs you need like Belly Button Window.

        This is THE BEST Edition of this I have to include the original RL which is also very good. The vinyl is better and has an incredible clarity and thump to it all through the album. I have had great success with the German 1st editions from Electric Ladyland which is mind blowingly good (also the best I have but I don’t have a 1st UK) and Rainbow Bridge. I need to get a Band of Gypsys even though the RL is decent but hard to find vinyl in decent shape.

            This Scandinavian pressing sounds great. The sound is fresh and very crisp. I think this is a Norwegian pressing.

              Time has been kind to this first posthumous release, aided by stellar recording quality.
              Sounds more like 1991 than 1971 to these ears
              Gritty socially conscious rockers like Freedom show show the pearl jam and soundgarden wing of alt-rock who started it all

                i noticed in sales history that someone was selling this issue in a jacket without the standard canadian circular yellow design on front, they thought it could have been accidently mismatched at some time but i have this version in a usa unipak jacket, does anyone know if kinney in canada was supplied with american jackets at any time for any reason? (record companies would do stuff like that, gotta sell what you can when you can) the photos here show a canadian jacket but you can't read the inside text where the company info is listed, if it's a true canadian kinney jacket it would say something inside, any thoughts?

                  This version is from 1977. Gatefold with Warner inner sleeve that has 1977 on it.

                    This is, hands down, one of the absolute best records I have ever heard. I have about 80 LPs and the majority of them don't have the sheer dynamic range, bass, clarity, and lack of inner groove distortion as this. It is THE version of the album to own, you wont regret buying this for about 15 to 25 dollars. Highly recommended, Robert Ludwig fuckin KILLED it with his mastering here.

                      Matrix / Runout (Side A Runout, Etched): 88843091781-A RE1 BG

                      However, I don't believe I have a 200 gram pressing

                        My favorite posthumous release. Great mixing. Fantastic through headphones. Highly recommended.
