The Cry Of Love is a compilation album by American rock guitarist and musician Jimi Hendrix, originally released in March 1971 by Track Records.

The Cry Of Love was the first of the posthumous releases in the Jimi Hendrix catalog and probably the best as it collected most of the studio tracks that were either completed or very near completion before Hendrix died, and remains an integral part of the Hendrix catalog.

Some of these tunes, like "Angel" and "Ezy Ryder", have become well-known pieces in the Hendrix canon, but they sit alongside lesser-known gems like "Night Bird Flying" and the Dylanesque "My Friend".

Freedom”, “Drifting”, “Night Bird Flying” and “Angel” 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, The Cry Of Love remains a pivotal releases in Hendrix’s discography. It not only got there first, (along with Rainbow Bridge), but also proved that vault sweeping didn’t necessarily have to leave fans feeling betrayed.

The Cry Of Love is the genuine article, Hendrix' final effort, and it is a beautiful, poignant testimonial, a fitting coda to the career of a man who was clearly the finest electric guitarist to be produced by the Sixties, bar none. The fact that The Cry Of Love is still as good as it is must serve as some sort of reminder as to just how large looms the shadow of its creator.

Check out the tracks: “Freedom” and “Angel”. 

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