There have been a large number of tributes to the great Jimi Hendrixgenerally ranging from spotty to awful, but here's one that actually works. Power of Soul: A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix is the first to appear under the auspices of Experience Hendrix, the Hendrix family's umbrella company for all things Jimi Hendrixand despite a couple misfires and hints of nepotism, it's very well done.
Reynolds is co-producer on the album, along with his wife, Janie Hendrixand here's where the nepotism creeps in. Reynolds is the only individual involved in more than one track, and a couple of them are probably the weakest tracks on the album. There is a brief snippet 43 seconds of Hendrix 's friend Velvert Turner playing guitar, with organ and vocal overdubs by Sheldon Reynolds. It's a nice thought to include Turner in the comp, but the track is a throwaway. Devoted Spiritswhich features George Dukeis another Reynolds project that does a decent instrumental version of "Who Knows," but the canned applause added to this studio track is completely unnecessary.
Ultimately, those are minor quibbles because the tracks that really work are so good that some CD programming makes for a fine album. Prince reinterprets "Red House" with great gospel-esque backing vocals and a monstrous guitar solo. Bootsy Collins and Pronto Chi Parla! Chi Parla Pronto! - Gegia - Gegia Clown of the P-Funk crew also take a few liberties and add some new lyrics to "Power of Soul" to great effect, making the tune their own.
The album ends on another definite highlight, with a blistering live medley of "Little Wing" and "Third Stone from the Sun" performed by Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Hendrix himself never even attempted to perform "Third Stone from the Sun" live, and Vaughan absolutely nails it. There are some flubs in his performance, but the amount of feeling he plays with easily overcomes them.
