Jimi Hendrix, in a rare appearance with a twelve string guitar… and what a superb blues performance. Hendrix plays one of his standards, Hear My Train a Comin’ for a film crew, and in an acoustic finger-picking country blues style. And what a treat.
Jimi Hendrix is synonymous with blues rock. Whilst his psychedelic rock guitar playing is well known, his more subtle blues work perhaps doesn’t get the attention it deserves.
Jimi played a lot of blues, both live and on record. Hendrix originals, such as Red House and Voodoo Chile graced his albums; but he also performed numerous covers live and in the studio. This collection features a range of tracks, played in different blues styles. There are some outstanding takes here – blues rock guitar playing at it’s best.
