About Loose Ends

Loose Ends is a posthumous compilation album by American guitarist Jimi Hendrix, released in February 1974 in the United Kingdom. It was the fourth and last Hendrix studio album released posthumously by manager Michael Jeffery. The album features a collection of outtakes and jams, with the exception of "The Stars That Play with Laughing Sam's Dice" which is the sole authorized track by Hendrix, in a new stereo mix by Eddie Kramer.

The album was engineered, mixed and compiled by John Jansen, who is listed on the record's sleeve as "Alex Trevor" because he did not wish his name to be on the LP's credits. Additional engineering was provided by Eddie Kramer, Dave Palmer, Kim King, Gary Kellgren, Jack Adams, Tom Flye and Jim Robinson.

Reprise Records (Jimi Hendrix' label at the time), declined to issue this album in the United States and Canada as they considered the material below standard. All the tracks on this LP have been subsequently re-released on other official albums, in some form, except "Blue Suede Shoes". The UK, French and Japanese pressings all had different covers.

This release was also repackaged in 1983 under the name The Jimi Hendrix Album on LP and cassette (Contour Records, UK).
