    That is about the same here in the U.S.. But, like I mentioned before, there were obviously younger cats and musicians who dug Hendrix. The R&B establishment had no use for him.

    Oh, we're all talking, just about different things. Most of we members have our pet issues that we like to discuss, from live shows, to funk, to the old days of Detroit, to The Supremes, to...

    That is an interesting thought: what direction he would have taken. He was trying desperately to gain credibility as a Black artist, but he also wanted a pop hit. It seems he was doing both of...

    My purpose isn't to just take what I like. I archive the entire album. So what if there's a song or two I don't like off an album? I want an exact copy of the album. I have also don't thousands...

    That doesn't answer the myth of dead people voting.

    That New York rejected jazz is very surprising to me, Splanky! And, I know you're right about Black fans liking Hendrix's music. I think that it was more of a generational thing than anything.

    CD sales are on a steady decline. There are a few die-hard CD buyers, but the sales of them are still dropping.

    If it weren't for the ability for people to cherry-pick album tracks, sales would...

    I listen to the local top 40 hits station and the hits channel on XM radio. They both play the song every hour, or so.

    Say what??? Ike & Tina were doing rock in the early 70s when Ike realized that was the way to go. Ike later said he didn't care for it.

    Not so fast! Vernon Reid started the Black Rock Coalition in the early 90s because he, and other Black rockers, even then, didn't get much respect because they were Black. Fishbone and Lenny...

    Here's the interesting and sad part: Hendrix died before he could ever see the appreciation many of the younger Blacks had for him, especially the other musicians, most notably the younger three...

    I guess you haven't heard many contemporary songs, have you? "Anaconda" is very mild compared to the uncensored rap part in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines", the uncensored Nicki Minaj' rap in Big...

    These voter ID laws are a solution looking for a problem. There is no voter fraud except in the minds of paranoid conservatives/republicans. If anyone is committing fraud, it's them, tricking...

    The year isn't over yet. Taylor Swift's new album hits the streets next week, so...
  16. Jimi Hendrix was frustrated that he wasn't accepted by Black audiences

    Here's a very interesting article from CNN about a side of Jimi Hendrix people didn't know or understand:

    Yup! All of em! It took me nearly a decade to accomplish this, but I did it, and i'm always adding more! I just added an Ashford & Simpson CD, and am about to restore a Spinners album. This past...

    About 55,000 songs. No joke. It was an easy estimate because I have all of my music on a server.

    I don't mind profanity, but "Anaconda" just a lousy song.

    Hey...I just paid attention to the lyrics of "All About The Bass" this time instead of just playing along with what you all are posting. I don't care for the song's lyrics any more than I care about...

    I don't consider a post from a non-news source credible. Henry Crosby can be wrong.

    I wish people on this forum wouldn't post stuff like this unless there is a credible source of information that can be linked.

    Nothing much to say. It's the same things all the time. I think Ralph should drop the "Motown" or "Detroit part of it and make it an R&B forum, period. Then, members would be more encouraged to...

    That's my point. Curtis Mayfield still had more control.
