RE: It was a part of a long, strange trip...

Years ago, on far-off Planet Seattle, I was the field engineer for the steel on the Experience Music Project (Paul Allen's Jimi Hendrix museum). It was the construction Bear's trip of a lifetime- I even got to see Paul Allen play some blues guitar- he ain't half bad... The construction team was so tight we had a 15 year reunion!

At the time of the grand opening they gave us free memberships that included a heavy discount at the museum store. I bought the "Jimi Hendrix Experience Limited Edition Box Set" - the one with the purple velour case. I was in shock at dropping like $75 for a rekkid set! But it truly was a limited edition and I like authentic useful souvenirs, no snow-globes. It sounds superb and includes some tracks I've seen nowhere else. They had some hookup with the Hendrix family vault- it was complicated.

I guess that box set trades for few $C these days, but I want it playing at my funeral- no- seriously. I keep the case in a frame on the wall.
