In Jersey...that ain't a cloud, it's a chemical fire.
I recall a boyhood dream...I wanted to be the upper bout of an acoustic guitar...
I have a version of my old buddy, Bobby Mayo (RIP) doing it that'll knock your socks off.
I'll see if I can post it, but I bet the CD is copy protected.
The voice Yoko strives for...
I like SRV's version of every Hendrix song that I've heard. I don't hate him by any stretch, Hendrix just never flipped my switch.
I thought this was gonna be a thread about who Little Wing was written about.
I hope you've learned one thing today
Well...who it is?
Still unsolved at 3 pages.
Someone probably already posted this, but I'm too lazy to read the whole thread: When I listen to the Stevie Ray version, I keep expecting the vocals to start as the next verse rolls around... but it's right back into a solo.
It's like the Famliy Guy episode waiting for "... and then there's Maude".
Thair that'll show'em
Ha, that's pretty good!
Jeff Beck doing his best Nigel Tufnel is pretty good.
To who is the song originally dedicated? Who is/was Little Wing?
His sensitive original playing/singing of his self penned song is streets ahead of SRV's over long boring lyric less version.
No disrespect to SRV but Hendrix is Hendrix.
I never liked the album version of Little Wing.
This version however blew my mind..
I "got it" then.
Seems like Little Wing was everyone, including the police, wrapped up into a matchstick sized flying girl....
"According to Hendrix, "Little Wing" came from an idea he had originally developed while playing in Greenwich Village, when he was fronting his band Jimmy James and the Blue Flames in the summer of 1966. He later explained that he was further inspired during the Experience's performance at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival:[e]
I got the idea like, when we were in Monterey and I was just looking at everything around. So I figured that I take everything I see around and put it maybe in the form of a girl maybe, somethin' like that, you know, and call it 'Little Wing', and then it will just fly away. Everybody's really flyin' and they're really in a nice mood, like the police and everybody was really, really great out there. So I just took all these things an put them in one very, very small little matchbox, you know, into a girl and then do it. It was very simple, but I like it though."
i never realized until now just how much of Marilyn Monroe they put into Tinkerbelle.
