Love on Jimi Hendrix

17 posts in this topic

Kids at my HS still dig Hendrix. They wear tie-dye t-shirts with his face on them. They listen to his music. They ask me what it was like back when he was alive.

Hendrix is as timeless as he is great.

Post your favorite Hendrix memories, concerts, song/albums and video here.

I Hear My Train a Comin'

I think the most underrated Hendrix song is Long Hot Summer Night. The beginning sounds like T Monk. The key change in the middle is wild. The backing vocals are great. The switching back and forth between jazz and e flat blues licks is hot. All around great song.

"Rainy Day, Dream Away" was always one of my favorites of his 'lesser-known' tunes (if you could call it that). It's got a great laid-back bluesy groove and some tasty B-3 by Mike Finnegan. Also a nice interplay between guitar/organ/sax at one point.

Me too. And that was before I moved to the Pacific Northwest. Here the song makes lots of sense, especially this time of year.

~ Edited to add I thought this thread was going to be about Arthur Lee's collaboration w/ Hendrix.

That sounds just like me!

Band of Gypsies. . .I don't think that will ever NOT floor me.

Jimi sang and played a lot about freedom, both in music and in life. I have always loved his music.

My favourite song: Gypsy Eyes

Favourite song #2: Ain't no Tellin'

This is my favourite album, strangely unavailable:

Some of my favorites:

Wait 'till Tomorrow (from ABAS) has to be one of the hippest tunes ever.

You Got Me Floatin' (from ABAS) is another classic that should be more popular than it is.

Gypsy Eyes (EL) is easily one of his best songs.

Any of the instrumentals (Midnight, Pali Gap, Villanova Junction, etc) particularly the version of Axis Bold As Love from the Experience Hendrix box.

Favorite album:

Band Of Gypsys - no competition, this is the album that firmly turned me into a Hendrix fanatic.

I have a feeling that within a few years this will show up as an official family offering.

If I'm not mistaken that tune is being used for a commercial now.

Along with the Beatles, Jimi was the first artist I listened to at the advent of my "musical awakening" in college. His music showed me so much that I'd not seen before. Here, 13 years later, his music still excites me. I love all his studio albums, along with most of the various releases that have come out on CD throughout the years. My favorite is still Band of Gypsys....I love that direction he was heading in towards the end of his life. A shame he didn't live longer to bless us with more.

I made a comp for my own private use a few days ago and I ended it with the Star Spangled Banner. Not a live version, but the multi-tracked guitar orchestra edition. As in:

This has ended our programing day...
