SAVE THE DATE. This Black Friday (November 25) we’re celebrating the release of an exclusive translucent orange and red vinyl pressing of the Dagger Records title Burning Desire. Pressed by QRP as a limited edition series of only 5,000 copies, this new release is part of Record Store Day new Encores series highlighting significant releases from past RSD Black Friday events.
Burning Desire is part of Dagger Records’ authorized Jimi Hendrix “bootleg” releases. Mixed by Eddie Kramer, the collection presents compelling examples of Jimi’s remarkable creative explorations through 1969 and early 1970. In the shadow of Electric Ladyland, the original Jimi Hendrix Experience struggled to remain a cohesive unit, and Jimi’s ceaseless creative pursuit would lead to experimental sessions with bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles and ambitious attempts to integrate fresh musical elements. On these studio recordings, Jimi can be heard developing exciting new material such as “Ezy Ryder,” “Cherokee Mist,” “Villanova Junction Blues,” “Izabella,” and “Burning Desire.”
