JIMI HENDRIX - The Essential Volume Two LP 79 w Smash Hits bonus 69

I borrowed and never gave back in 4th grade this tape and Smash Hits from the older brother with tapes (other brother had only vinyl) and used to really enjoy it.  A year or two ago I saw this vinyl with the bonus Gloria 7 released only in U.K. at the time and snatched it up without hearing it until now.  I had forgot how much I enjoyed it!  He influenced so, so many artists and I can see why now.
My old actual tape extra songs:
