After going through rounds of litigation over the years due to Jimi Hendrix’s brief tenure as guitarist with Curtis Knight & The Squires, and subsequent use of the former guitarist’s name once international recognition and stardom with the Jimi Hendrix Experience took place, the release of ‘You Can’t Use My Name’ is a means to restore some justice. In order to do this, the family of Jimi Hendrix continued with their litigation until Hendrix’s contributions as a sideman with Curtis Knight & The Squires could be presented in its original context. Prior to this latest compilation, the problems have been associated with countless inferior copies being released and featuring images of Hendrix at the height of his own personal fame, and therefore nothing to do with the Curtis Knight project. However, with balance restored by the sterling efforts of Eddie Kramer behind the mixing desk and creating a far superior listening experience in terms of what has gone before, You Can’t Use My Name’ is also notable for the inclusion of the previously unreleased ‘Station Break’ and for adding several full-length versions of previously compiled songs; ‘Knock Yourself Out (Flying On Instruments)’ being the pick of the bunch for a peek at the greatness that was emerging on guitar. If there are any grievances regarding ‘You Can’t Use My Name’, it solely lies with the opinion that it’s all a tad mediocre with nothing particularly standing out, apart from the previously mentioned instrumental track, and for the shortage of a charismatic frontman because Curtis Knight falls someway short. It was no wonder that the coattails of Jimi Hendrix were well and truly clung to once he departed to pastures new because it’s his guitar work – ‘No Such Animal’ for example – that leads from the front here. ‘You Can’t Use My Name’ goes some way to readdressing previous issues, but remains for the completest only.
