ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Oreo Blue in conjunction with BC Promotions and Doug Haase is proud to announce the release of "The Oreo Blue Experience / A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix" in May 2003. The "Oreo Blue Experience" is a live double disc package that includes a full length DVD concert movie with all the extras, plus an audio CD as well! This project is officially licensed by The Experience Hendrix LLC and $1 from each unit sold will be donated to VH1's Save the Music Foundation in Jimi's honor. The concert includes such classics as "Purple Haze, Voodoo Child (Slight Return), Hey Joe and Little Wing" along with some more obscure songs like "Who Knows and Them Changes" from the Band of Gypsies album. An original solo instrumental tribute by Oreo Blue guitarist Gary Hutchison, "US" is included along with a never before covered Hendrix song "Stratto-Strut". This funk instrumental song was featured on the Jimi Hendrix 2000 release Morning Symphony Ideas. The DVD concert has all the visual qualities of a full blown Rock Concert with world class production. Also, all who attended and signed the guest book are listed as co-producers in the movie credits.

tribute: something given or contributed voluntarily as due or deserved; especially : a gift or service showing respect, gratitude, or affection; something that indicates the worth or virtue of the one in question.

"That Jimi Hendrix is due respect, gratitude, or affection comes as no surprise. Hendrix reinvented the electric guitar as we know it today, and there is scarcely a player who plugs a Fender Strat into a Marshall amp that doesn't owe the master a debt. To pay a musical tribute to the man, or in this case, to play a tribute to him, is a tall order- like writing a sonnet for Shakespeare. So when the veteran R&B band Oreo Blue decided to become the Oreo Blue Experience Tribute To Jimi, they approached the project with a profound appreciation for both the technical skill and the spirit of the late, great Hendrix. The bands' desire to evoke the freedom and electricity of a Jimi Hendrix performance is attained by a rare combination of musical talent and beyond-the-boundaries risk-taking. The result is not mimicry or a paint-by-numbers greatest hits set, but a highly creative, emotional performance that embraces the familiar and the obscure, the subtlety and the bombast of The Experience."
-Tim Jones / Porter Entertainment-


"The Oreo Blue Experience" is a definite Jimi Hendrix & Oreo Blue fan pleaser capturing the raw energy a Hendrix show on tape in the unmistakable Oreo Blue style. Hendrix fans will want to absolutely add this to their collection. It will be available in select music stores and as always, at www.oreoblue.com . Oreo Blue is proud to support VH1 Save the Music.

Did we mention the DVD? It is a world class production full length Concert DVD Movie with all the extras. If you love Jimi Hendrix you'll want to add this to your collection. Oreo Blue captures the passion and energy of a live show perfectly to video and cd. You'll be telling you friends about this one, it's hot, smoking and for a good cause! What a bargain getting the DVD & CD in the same package.

Great Live DVD with killer sound.
Just recieved this new Oreo Blue Experience CD/DVD in the mail. The sound quality is amazing...crystal clear and punchy. The show was filmed nicely and features some really cool versions of Hendrix tunes done by a band in top form. Seems like the band was having a great time on stage. It has great versions of some of Hendrix's best stuff and features this great unreleased Hendrix tune called Strato Strutt...a really cool fusion type tune with some nice added percussion. The guitar and sax work is smokin' thoughout the whole set. You can either listen to the CD or play the DVD and watch the show. At any case it's definitely worth the money. It would be a great DVD to put on at a party. When I play it in the store it gets the place rockin'...play it loud!!! you'll see.

Should be on the airwaves!!
The most spectacular tribute to Hendrix available. Loaded with licks that you would swear were Jimi. Packed with awesome tunes and both DVD and CD. What more could you ask for? I would suggest all of the Oreo Blue titles you can get your hands on. True Musicians!

Almost as good as live!
I was there that night and love the DVD almost as much as the live performance. Few bands play with the passion Oreo Blue dose. This DVD and seeing them play live is a must for any blues/rock fan.

Excellent! I was more than impressed.
I have seen them once live and read the reviews so I had high hopes. I was completely surprised by just how much better it was than I thought it was going to be. I echo all other reiveiws with great video and great sound quaility. I really felt like I was there that night.

I had no idea how much I'd love it!
I've seen and heared many Hendrix tributes, but this one comes from love.
The guitar-sax arrangements are fabulous, especially on little wing. The
guitar playing is superb throughout. Red House is a blues masterpiece, with
licks Jimi himself would have digged. And the rythm section is solid and
funky, with some of the best drum and bass lines I've heared. The CD/DVD
package is a real treat. Why have'nt I heared of OREO BLUE before? We have
a strong blues audience here. We've had visits by BB King, Buddy Guy, Hiram
Bullock, Paul Rodgers, John Mayall and many others. I'll try and connect you
with some promotors and clubs, maybe we'll see OB here someday. Please thank
the four members of OB for their love of music, passionate playing and
talented singing.

The Greatest!
The Oreo Blue Experience is absolutely a fantastic tribute to Jimi Hendrix. The work that Oreo Blue put into making this a 5 star music CD is absolutely amazing! I agree with some of the other reviewers....this CD should be making the airwaves on the radio! If you ever even thought that you liked any Jimi Hendrix music, you will be very pleased with The Oreo Blue Experience. I'm sure that Jimi is smiling over the work that Oreo Blue did to take this music to the next level. This CD is a MUST HAVE!!!

Best Hendrix tribute I have heard
I have several Hendrix tribute CDs in my collection and I quickly found that this is my favorite (yes, I even like it better than the Hamster's tribute). Last year I purchased their Ten Down CD and became an Oreo Blue fan. When I saw that they had a Hendrix tribute available, I couldn't quite see, based on Ten Down, where the Hendrix influence came in. This just goes to show that you can't judge a band by its previous CD. I have never seen them live, but I imagine they have been including Hendrix material in their set for years. I also had a few reservations about how a sax would fit in a Hendrix tribute. Wrong again. The sax player enhances rather than detracts from the music. The guitar playing is tremendous. Gary Hutchison, one of those guys who deserves guitar-god status in my opinion, has the knack for capturing Jimi's style of playing while avoiding any attempt to copy him note-for-note. It also doesn't hurt that he really knows his way around a wah-wah pedal. The band is tight, the recording quality excellent, the choice of covers right up my alley (versions of Voodoo Chile, Hey Joe, Red House, and All along the Watchtower that are around 10 minutes each). This is one of the best purchases I have made in months.
