dUg PINNICK – Tribute To Jimi [Often Imitated But Never Duplicated] (2018)
Renowned King’s X front-man dUg PINNICK released “Tribute to Jimi (Often Imitated but Never Duplicated)” a special limited print tribute album to the legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix. “Tribute to Jimi” was recorded at Blacksound Studios, Pasadena, CA and was co-produced by dUg and Michael Parnin, and mastered by Kurdt Vanderhoof (Metal Church).
About the release dUg states, “I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time, so when Joe at Rat Pak Records brought the idea up to me, I couldn’t wait to get started! We wanted to recreate the analog recording process as closely to the original recordings as possible, so we did our research and tried to use as many of the original effects and equipment that we could find.
I’m very happy with how this turned out and I hope everyone enjoys listening to this music as much as I enjoyed recording it in memory of Jimi Hendrix!”
And they made it indeed. All these classics from ‘Crosstown Traffic’ and ‘Purple Haze’ to ‘All Along The Watchtower’ and ‘Voodoo Child (Slight Return)’ sound darn close to the originals, replicating that atmosphere and bulb-amp guitar sound.
dUg’s voice sounds similar to Hendrix to begin and the band did an amazing job with the arrangements and sound.
If you like Hendrix’s music (who doesn’t), the vibe of the music we love when all this started, all done with respect and integrity, “Tribute to Jimi (Often Imitated but Never Duplicated)” is a must listen.
