Noooooooooo!! You cannot have Jimi in the same universe as the Boors
Well, it's my opinion so I can have whatever I damn well please.
Or the version done by Roger, Pete, Keith and John.
Shirley you jest.
That version makes me want to put it on a loop and have tantric sex on a sailboat in 1983.
I’d rather listen to Neil Young’s Little Wing.
I would have liked SRVs more if he had sung the song. The song has fantastic lyrics and melody.
As good as SRV was, I feel he kinda missed the point of the song.
Eric Gales kinda overplays too but, he sings an admirable version.
This version is cool, as there are 3 different soloists all with a different take.
Nope, that is my honest opinion. There is considerable skill behind it for sure, and it's an impressive interpretation of the original. My problem with it is that it's too precise, too sterile, almost like it was played by a robot. It lacks all the mojo and feel of the original.
Try to tap a steady beat to the original intro. You can't, because the tempo changes, a lot. Yet it works and it adds to the song.
SRV? Technically skilled, but for the fedl of the song... Meh!
Your opinion is not so humble unless you can outplay Stevie.
Nobody could out play SRV but everyone can form an opinion. Nothing wrong with that.
here they be...
Like a rectum. Everyone has one and they all stink!
Not to be argumentative but, not all opinions stink. Im sure yous dont stink to you.
I can't. And I never claimed it was humble.
I like Jimi’s live versions and Stevie's about the equally, but extra points to Jimi for writing the damn thing and coming up with the basic improvisations that Stevie changed slightly, but not that much. Gotta go with Jimi...
I’m sorry, that’s not for me .
My feelings exactly.
I’m a fan of both versions, but my choice is the Beatles version.
