Rainbow Bridge is a compilation album by American rock guitarist and musician Jimi Hendrix, originally released in October 1971 by Reprise Records.

Back when Rainbow Bridge was originally released, it was actually among the best of the posthumous Hendrix releases. Billed as "the original motion picture soundtrack" (it wasn't, really), it was a mix of excellent, finished studio tracks and a couple of live tracks.

In many ways this is one of Hendrix's best albums – it's diverse, but not a goulash. Here the songs are full, and full of spirit. Though there are technical drawbacks that might have precluded their release if Hendrix the perfectionist lived (ragged endings, out of tune choruses, etc.), they certainly don't detract from the essence. In fact the “good enough to go” feel of the tracks adds to the albums essence

Highlights include overlooked gems like "Pali Gap" and Jimi's rarely heard studio version of "The Star Spangled Banner," which is made of multi-tracked guitars and basses. However “Dolly Dagger”, “Hear My Train A Comin’” and “Hey Baby (New Rising Sun)” are cornerstone works of Handrix’s post-Experience era, and reflect an artist on the move to shake his past and forge his future. Wrapping the blues in entirely new shades, Hendrix guides these songs with an assortment of musicians including former Experience members Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding, Band of Gypsys Billy Cox and Buddy Miles, Steve Winwood and Stephen Stills.

While the 1997 release of ‘First Rays Of The New Rising Sun’ (which is mostly made up of Cry Of Love And Rainbow Bridge), reconstructs, as closely as possible, Hendrix’s vision for his fourth studio album, Rainbow Bridge remains a pivotal releases in Hendrix’s discography. It not only got there first, (along with The Cry Of Love), but also proved that vault sweeping didn’t necessarily have to leave fans feeling betrayed.

Check out the tracks: “Dolly Dagger” and “Room Full Of Mirrors”. 

This LP with remastered audio and reproduced artwork is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight audiophile vinyl.
