Fair use rationale for Image:BestofHendrix.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:BestofHendrix.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

A table needs to be added for the original UK singles. I'll do it later. By the way, RIP Jimi - 37 years ago today. -- Mickraus 12:42, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Complete re-haul[edit]

I was working on this in my sandbox and have changed the discography to comply with the Manual of Style according to the WikiProject pages, and examples like Pink Floyd discography and Metallica discography. The new style is much more surfable, easier to use and tidier, with more releases and articles. Please discuss here before completely changing it back, I strongly believe this is for the better. Andre666 (talk) 09:08, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

I hate this, but if it's what you want at least get your facts straight - do not list North American Are You Experienced together with the rest of the world issue it is quite different a separate LP, as is Smash Hits, also the North American singles singles are in almost every case different from the rest of world (mainly B sides, but also A's) A few LP's were also not released in North America. Platinum, gold etcetera have no meaning outside US.Jameselmo (talk) 01:25, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Are You Experienced is one LP, the fact that it had different track listings is irrelevant; I'm pretty sure you can't just list the same released twice. Smash Hits also just has a different track listing, and when you say "A few LP's were also not released in North America", what are you referring to? Andre666 (talk) 06:51, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Just what is your definition of an LP? If the track listing differs it's a different LP, especially in the case of Are You Experienced which in its original release did not include the first three UK singles. The US version included those single A-sides, but at the exclusion of three tracks from the original release. It's very important for an encyclopedia to distinguish between such things and not regard fundamental differences such as track listings as "irrelevant". -- Mickraus (talk) 12:12, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
Different track listings based on the country of issue is a common problem with many LPs, even LP versus cassette versions of the same LP. The name under which an "LP" is released is the LP; different versions of it are subsets and should be listed and identified as such. The real problem, I guess, is which is the master to which the others are subsets -- 'US version is always the master' will certainly ruffle some feathers somewhere.
On another note... I have a copy of "High, Live, and Dirty", a red vinyl LP with a release date of 1980 that was recorded in a club somewhere. A Google search for "hendrix" +"high, live" results in release dates of 1980 and 1978. Is this one of the bootlegs? If so, the bootleg(s) should be identified with the name rather than simply the place of recording.

Image copyright problem with Image:JimiHendrix2.jpg[edit]

The image Image:JimiHendrix2.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

AfD closed as merge to here[edit]

I've just closed Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Albert Hall Experience as merge all to here. I've only added the one {{afdmergefrom}} tag above to avoid it becoming horridly choked with them (there were quite a few pages in the nomination). Please discuss the merger below, and feel free to contact me if there are any problems. Thank you. lifebaka++ 15:07, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

I don't understand how that article can be merged into the discog. The way I see it, the album is unofficial and not worthy enough to be on Wikipedia full stop, surely? Andre666 (talk) 16:46, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
I just watched a clip from the movie on YouTube [1] and came looking for more info on the other players - happy to find the article - with good info on the history of the recording - but a lack of personnel info.. Would like to see it expanded. Wwwhatsup (talk) 18:19, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

"This article may be too long" notice[edit]

In reference to this, I am most probably going to split the discography up into Jimi Hendrix discography (the regular one) and Jimi Hendrix posthumous discography (containing, obviously, all posthumous releases. Also the lead section needs to be summarised; I may do this at some point too. Any suggestions as to anything else in reference to this? Andre666 (talk) 06:50, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Split complete, check it! Cleanup still pending. Andre666 (talk) 21:23, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Earlier records (before Jimi Hendrix Experience)[edit]

There should be a section with earlier recordings that feature him as a guitarist (e.g. with the Isley Brothers, Rosa Lee Brooks, Little Richard, Curtis Knight and the Squires...) Spandrels (talk) 09:04, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Rolling Stone, Vol 1. No. 4, dated January 20, 1968 - features Hendrix on the cover with a story about a sketchy, dated, bad quality "official" bootleg being released by Capitol called "Got That Feeling: Jimi Hendrix plays, Curtis Knight sings". If this album was actually released, should it be included? - Redrkr (talk) 16:21, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
Heard about this record before, it is not official. Andre666 (talk) 10:21, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Woodstock movie soundtrack album[edit]

Is there a reason this is not included in the discography? Likewise for the posthumous section: Woodstock 2; The First Great Rock Festivals of the Seventies: Isle of Wight/Atlanta Pop Festival; Red House: Variations on a Theme. Ojorojo (talk) 03:49, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Tribute albums?[edit]

Who sneaked in tribute albums to a discography? A discography is the collected works of the artist - not of everyone who ever played his songs. If Jimi didn't play on it - it's not part of Jimi's discography - very simple. MarkinBoston (talk) 03:09, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Highway Child?[edit]

At the EP part, it says 'Highway Child' instead of 'Highway Chile'. Is it really a different song, or a simple mistake by the guy who typed it there? I've seen Highway Chile and Voodoo Child getting mixed up before, so I thought that that might be the case here too. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.194.230.174 (talk) 13:20, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

It's a typo; I've corrected it now. Andre666 (talk) 14:04, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

Merge Jimi Hendrix posthumous discography with Jimi Hendrix discography. I think there's absolutely no need to have two separate pages. We don't have two separate pages for Elvis Presley. Randomuser112 (talk) 02:07, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Agree. I definitely support merging this page into the regular JH discography. Having two pages seems unnecessarily confusing to readers and also unnecessarily hard to navigate. If I want to view Hendrix's discography, then I want it all in one place. --Kohoutek1138 (talk) 22:24, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

December 2013[edit]

I really don't know whether or not today's edit by 12.76.141.89 is accurate. If it is, it needs citations and quite a bit of work on setnece structure. Actually, maybe the whole article could do with splitting into sections? This isn't my field, so I'm standing well back. Nick Levine (talk) 20:33, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

  • I slept on this, and have decided to revert 12.76.141.89's edit. On top of yesterday's unease, I see that further edits from this IP were identified as possible vandalism by others. Nick Levine (talk) 11:12, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Filmography?[edit]

How about a list of concert films featuring Hendrix? FunkMonk (talk) 20:01, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I was planning to add. There are quite a few; Roby and McDermott are good sources. —Ojorojo (talk) 15:04, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Nice work! FunkMonk (talk) 17:47, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
Added Jimi Hendrix posthumous discography#Filmography. There are probably some that didn't get transfered to NTSC. Any additions or more info (South Bank episode & The Man They Made God)? —Ojorojo (talk) 20:13, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
This isn't meant for a discography article; would you mind moving this to a separate article/the main Hendrix article? Andre666 (talk) 20:36, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
Says who? See The Beatles discography, The Who discography, among others. FunkMonk (talk) 20:39, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

May 8, 2014 edits[edit]

(Moved here from User talk:Ojorojo#Jimi Hendrix Discography):
Hi you seem like a good editor so I am just here to ask your opinion about something, do you think it would be a good idea to list the live albums that Hendrix was on but are not hendrix albums in their own section to avoid confusion with his own live albums.Lukejordan02 (talk) 16:55, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for assuming good faith. Hendrix biographer Shapiro (Electric Gypsy) and AllMusic both list the Monterey album as part of his discography. So it appears that this is considered a "Hendrix album", although it has a equal credit with Otis Redding. Woodstock is not listed as such, but contains "The Star Spangled Banner", which is one of his best-known recordings, along with the only other officially released recordings by his interim "Gypsy Sun and Rainbows" band (at least until they were re-released years later). So, it definitely deserves a place in his discography. I think a separate section for one entry is unnecessary; the notes included next to the album titles (along with the album links) advise the reader exactly what they are and should avoid any confusion. Likewise, Electric Jimi Hendrix was an official release and is listed by Shapiro. The note next to the title explains it. Readers of an encyclopedia should expect more detail and comprehensiveness than what they can find on most music sites. These comments also apply to the Posthumous discography. —Ojorojo (talk) 18:06, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Australian charts[edit]

The recently added column for Australian singles links to the Kent Music Report, which states that it was compiled "from May 1974 through to 1998". Since this this discography only includes releases up the Hendrix's death on September 18, 1970, Kent would not contain any pertinent information. Additionally, the source cited is a forum with postings by various members, including dodo_fleet. The Hendrix infomation was posted by BeansterBarnes on June 15, 2008. This doesn't appear to meet the WP:CHARTS#General Guidelines of "published by a recognized reliable source" and possibly "covers sales or broadcast outlets from multiple sources". Currently, ARIA Charts (1988-present) and Hung Medien (1988-present) are listed in WP:GOODCHARTS (Hung Medien appears to be the forum site used, but since it only dates back to 1988, does not include any Hendrix pre-9/1970 releases).

For layout considerations, adding more columns for each country leads to crowding and is the reason for the "Other" column (see Talk:Jimi Hendrix posthumous discography#Table configuration). By hovering the mouse over the note link in that column, the reader can see the various countries and chart positions for each entry. It is a more visually appealing solution, without any loss of information. If a reliable source can be found for pre-9/1970 Hendrix Australian releases (or any other territory), adding them to the "Other" column is a simple procedure. —Ojorojo (talk) 15:51, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
