PSD and I land here!.. Great rendition, but an even better one is on the hard-to-find record Hendrix in the West.

Even today, many years from the first time I heard this "song", I feel the same strangeness the sitted guy holding that thing at the bottom of the picture, seems to.
And every time, it sounds better !

Just...wow. Maybe a little OTT but so damned what. This must have gone off like a bomb in the world of professional rock guitarists when it came out. 

Fled from Interpol's "Rest My Chemistry" to this via PSD--from worst to first.

The Maestro... I just listened to Steve Earle talk about "Are You Experienced" and "Axis Bold As Love" coming out in the same year, 1967. Unreal...

If you're ever in Seattle, do yourself a favor and go see Paul Allen's gift to the world, The Experience Music Project. They've got a Hendrix exhibit there that is unbelievable.

It's funny how the electric guitar has been around for the 42 years since Hendrix died, and about that long before. There is not now, never has been, and never will be his equal. Here's to the best axe man who ever lived. {#Cowboy}

Come to think of it, I didn't know that e=fþ. But I see your point. It really is a shame. I may be slow but I eventually know sarcasm when I see it.

Andy Rooney of 60 Minutes fame, an amateur guitarist, said he heard Jimi play, I believe, at Altamonte.  And he said Jimi could play better with his toes than Andy could ever play on his best day.  Ah, Andy is good at other things.

Everybody has a right to there opinion - why should we ever assume that someone else hears the meaning we do (or doesn't hear what we do not)? I could care less what someone else thinks - if a song moves me to shake and scream like a madman or reduces me to naked emotion and stirs me as deeply as I can imagine anything ever would (as this song always does no matter how many times I hear it) - or both, I like it no less if someone else doesn't feel any of that. It doesn't change a thing for me. I'm going to react the very same way the next time I hear it.

Perfection. I rarely resort to negativity on RP, but whoever voted Sucko Barfo above is on crack. There are a few artists who just seemed to land on this earth out of nowhere and capture the world. Hendrix was one of them. Like a nuclear freight train with no brakes...

The whole album sounds best though headphones or a really good stereo with good speaker placement.

Nope, 59% of RP listeners give it a 10.  I have noticed women tend to not like Hendrix as much as men for some reason.

Being an amateur athlete I'm always looking for music to amp up before a race. I've used a number of tunes over the years but this always returns to my playlist. It's not as hard-driving as, say, Fishbone's "Modern Industry" but it has an intensity that's hard to match.
