South Southern Delta (1997) Created by Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., under exclusive

license to MCA Records, Inc. in 1997.
Peaked at the 51th spot on The Billboard 200 in 1997.
        Shortly after the Hendrix family reacquired the rights to

Jimi's catalog, they signed a long-term deal with MCA

Records and pulled many of the compilations of unreleased

material and rarities off the shelves, with the intent of
re-releasing the material in better collections. First Rays of the New Rising Sun, an attempt at

assembling Hendrix's uncompleted last album, was the first release from Experience Hendrix LLC, and

it was followed months later by
South Saturn Delta, a collection of rarities -- all but one of the 15 tracks

were never officially released in the U.S. -- that spans his entire career. Its intent is to capture the full

range of Hendrix's music through an alternate history, and it works pretty well. Among the highlights are

tracks from the
War Heroes and Rainbow Bridge Concert albums ("Look Over Yonder," "Tax Free,"

"Midnight," "Pali Gap," "Bleeding Heart"), "Sweet Angel" (an early version of "Angel"), an instrumental

"Little Wing," a solo take on "Midnight Lightning," and a studio version of "Message to the Universe

(Message to Love)." There are also alternate mixes of "All Along the Watchtower," "Power of Soul,"

"Drifter's Escape," "South Saturn Delta," and "The Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice." It's an

intelligently sequenced, listenable collection of some of the very best outtakes and rarities from Hendrix,

and is another sign that Experience Hendrix LLC's restoration of Jimi's catalog will be smart, stylish,

and logical. (
