My god, what an outstanding lineup. The Ragin Cajun, Emmylou and Hoyt Axton - how terrific. I just bought a slew of compliations - SRV (of course), Hendrix (of course), CCR & Springsteen. Listening to all of them, sorry,can't single out any individual songs yet. Did play Hendrix' Star Spanled Banner for the kid, who's learning the song in his guitar lessons - he couldn't pick out a lot of it but was fascinated when I told him part of it was Jimi playing with his teeth.

Wasn't around Wednesday to say YAHOODY, so YAHOODY!!!

btw, verification is dedpc -there's something there,n'est pas?

Jimi was a true musical force. A friend of mine who is into bootleg stuff has some soundboard tapes of Jimi playing rythym guitar for the Eisley Brothers. There's even rumours of stuff out there from his days playing Calypso. My favorite came from "Slam" Stewart the jazz great who said "I don't get it. It's the blues played by a martian." Except, with no disrespect to Slam, that's exactly it. There's a great track out there of Pepé Romero playing a beautiful version on classical guitar also. And José Feliciano's great version. It's a good damn song. Technically intricate and demanding (requiring a full octave and a half vocal range, which is beyond most casual singers) I enjoy doing it as a folk song and singing all four verses, as Key wrote it.
