    Default I Discovered a Guy named Jimi Hendrix

    I never liked that ealy 70's psychadelic flower child on drugs music which was epitomized by the late Jimi Hendrix. Then I ran across a CD where he sings blues and was blown away:

    http://www.amazon.com/Blues-Jimi-Hen...0531486&sr=1-1

    Now the roots of the music he played becomes readily apparent. Jimi was actually an excellent blues musician. A couple of cuts are studio jam sessions. He also wrote several of the songs. The liner notes are like 26 pages, too.

    You may want to check out his Band of Gypsies stuff too. More bluesy than the later psychedelia.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    he died in the early 70's so not sure which segment of his music you are reffering to..most of his 60's music was based in blues with some psychedelic thrown in..

    You are just now discovering Hendrix ? :D . He has to be one of my top 5 favorite artists, a true musical genious, way ahead of his time. I have so many outtake and bootleg recordings it really fills in his whole career quite nicely. The Experience was a very dynamic combination and really that trio is unsurpassed even today.

    The Band of Gypsies line-up is no less musical just a bit more laid back and groovy. I highly recommend the complete "Live at the Fillmore" concert.

    Enjoy and explore as much of his music as you can!!

    Jimi's got a lot of good material besides the "I've got LSD dripping from my headband" stuff. IMO, his Band of Gypsy period is incredible, a perfect segue from his psychedelic first releases to the jazzier later releases. That being said, I'd recommend listening to "First Rays of the New Rising Sun" and "South Saturn Delta" if your interested in some of his not-so-freak out stuff. These 2 titles have some of that on there, but they also have a some great instrumental jazz oriented tracks. "Pali Gap" is one that comes to mind.

    "Blues" is a great release, start to finish. There's also a release from the Martin Scorsese blues series he did that's pretty much all blues numbers.

    Late 60's early 70's was some of the best rock ever. Most of the "classic" rock is blues based music. Hendrix, Winwood, Joplin,Claptin....all blues based music.

    I lived those years and have been to hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of concerts!!! If your mind is closed to that era, you really don't know what you are missing. Eric B. and the Animals, mixed bands like The Yardbirds. . . I have an old Yardbirds LP where Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, a 15 year old Steve Winwood, Jeff Beck & Jim McCarty converged to make a hell of a concert! Traffic. . . the list is endless!!!

    Two dollars and fifty cents was the price of the ticket to see them at The Singer Bowl in the late 60's. The Chambers Bros. and The Soft Machine were also there that night.

    They played it that night. I don't think it was 30 minutes, but it was the whole side of the album. It was a lot more tolerable than In-A-Gadda-Davida.

    As long as she didn't "sing" her songs, I liked her. Man, that was a crappy voice to me. Everyone has someone musically they cannot listen to and she would be on my short list. I don't mean to offend anyone of course. We are all different and that's just my opinion....

    I think she was as soulful as a person can get! When she sang you knew her pain and joy and sorrow and ecstasy and despair.

    I also believe she sang with passion but her voice was scrapped from screaming. What made me like the music was her passion but the voice was bad.

    There is a quote from someone saying that the Janice Joplin
    that made the records was only about 50% of what she sounded
    like before. Mind numbing prospect. She must of been a real vocal
    powerhouse before the booze/drugs.

    There's a lot of gems from that era that never get airplay.
    Try XM's deep cuts. Sometimes there's something that will send you
    scrounging for lost records.
    One of deep cuts hosts summed it all up. Why would you call a station
    and ask them to play music you already own?

    One of my favorite songs of all time. Their epic songs are without equal. "Since I Been Lovin You", "The Rain Song", "In My Time of Dyin'", "Ten Years Gone"... Oh man. I'm definitely listening to some Zeppelin tonight.

    I remember the Balcony boutique on 69th Street!!! Purchased lots of paraphernalia there as well as records. I grew up in Yeadon.

    If you are ever ready to give up the "wax" I'll be like a hungry wolf waiting for scraps. Seriously, all my Zepplin LPs were damaged by water and then mold. I've restored LZ III but it sounds like crap. I haven't tried the others yet but am pretty sure of the same result with them because on top of being damaged, they were played excessively.

    I saw on one of the "big three" sites that there are new LP releases of all the Led Zepplin LPs. I don't think they are under $30 a pop.

    I admit, I saw them too. I also saw The Doors (twice), Vanilla Fudge, Jefferson Airplane, Black Sabbath, Grand Funk Railroad, Rolling Stones and many more. All in their hey-day. It was a lot of good music and a fun period in American culture.
