Wild Jim

Years ago, I had the opportunity to watch and listen to Hendrix play his ax as no one had ever done before. Besides being a wild thing and fabulous performer, I later found out that guitarist Jimi Hendriks was brave enough to serve in the military when his time arrived.

Hendrix had a dazzling technique that combined the use of feedback and fuzz to almost casually create music of stunning strength and inventiveness. At times he played guitar with his teeth his vocals were warm, wistful or lascivious on cue, and never less than engaging; what passes for banter between numbers is winningly self-effacing.

These are Hendrixosity recordings that have never been bettered or were never heard before. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLV4_xaYynY&list=RDEM4wqYxGDi5M2b4yJ9MZZXtw&start_radio=1
