Yahoo LAUNCHCAST song of the day
Album:Voodoo Child:The Jimi Hendrix Collection
Newcomers trying to figure out where to begin with the music of guitar legend Jimi Hendrix would be wise to start with this 2CD comp Voodoo Child. It's got all his most popular songs from The Jimi Hendrix Experience along with The Band Of Gypsys. This version of Machine Gun was recorded with The Band Of Gypsys at the Fillmore East in New York Jan. 1, 1970 with Billy Cox on bass and Buddy Miles on drums. The Fillmore East concerts have been released on 2CDs. A comp like Voodoo Child give neophytes the opportunity to figure out what they like. Otherwise the Hendrix catalog is very confusing. Here's Jimi Hendrix performing Machine Gun at the Fillmore East Jan. 1, 1970. Jimi Hendrix was like a comet. He shone brightly but didn't last very long. His music is still fresh today.
