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 often doesn’t get the attention it deserves. But Blues aims to put this right!
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 its best.
