Don't know why, but it holds a special place in the amazing greatness that was Jimi Hendrix for me. Beautiful and too short.

Was there anyone at any point who could have said, "You know Jimi, you've written a lot of great solos but something tells me this is one of the best. Maybe we should let it ride for a few more bars?"
 
I think the early cut-off is an essential part of experiencing the greatness of this song. Often it is better to get only a glimpse of perfection, than to be given all of it and allowing oneself to be overexposed to it.

Love this track. I've heard it performed at 4 different concerts, including Randy "sounds like Jimi" Hansen, Slow hand (with Robert Cray) , Paul "the Voice" Rogers and Steve "guitar" Miller.
10s across the board!  

The original album version also gets a 10, if not just because of how beautiful the song is, because of how much of a 'staple' in rock/blues guitar it would become. 

Long Live RP!

There were other epic Hendrix fade outs which left us wanting. The ultimate was on Bold as Love. Just blazing, then gone away...

I wish I could hear this song for the first time, without any knowledge of Hendrix just to see how I would respond to it.  I can't imagine not still loving it, but then I also can't imagine my music perspective without Jimi Hendrix in it.

I got to see The Doors but the wife got to see Jimi's last NA concert in LA.  I think she won that one.  {#Cheesygrin}

I have been listening during lunch for an hour.  This song will extend past the allotted time.  Tough.  What a great hour of music Bill.

Yup. Leaves you wanting for more.
Same thing on Bold as Love, perhaps even more so. Listen to what he's doing when the fade comes around the 4:00 mark. Mind blowing.

Hi Laz! I've seen ABB a few times, and I dig Duane. No prob with him at all, loved him. Sex, drugs, & R n' R too!

Just saying why do we try to make larger gods out of those who were already gods when they were still with us on this rock? Aren't we all "divine" in our own way?

Yep this Jimi tune and the many others, I agree. Awesomely great stuff that not so many are making these days. Who among us doesn't miss them all enormously...like air or water? I hope we all get to drink some cold ones together in the next world...if there is one.

I'd agree with those picks (no pun intended).
Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck at 3 & 4, IMO.
Or maybe I'd put Page & Beck ahead of Allman, but it's kind of splitting hairs.

It's past noon here in The Hague in Holland so I can use some uptempo music here though the mellow night music is nice to get accustomised to a dreary winters Saturday.
