Let The Good Times Roll
I've been listening to a lot of Jimi Hendrix at the moment, in fact on Sunday I listened to the whole of the Woodstock album and Electric Ladyland which is an absolutely stunning album. I thought I had it in digital form until it came to preparing for this post when I found to my annoyance that it has not been ripped so you will have to do with the Youtube clip. Come On (part 1) is on Electric Ladyland, the Experience's third and final studio album before the group disintegrated. The track is a cover of a track by Earl King, itself based on a jump up blues song from the late forties by Louis Jordan which in typical Hendrix fashion he makes his own. I got really into the guitar solo during this at the weekend and lifted the needle to repeat three times. I think I might be regressing back to my fourteen year old self. I wonder if my Italian army jacket is still at my mother's? I can smell the patchouli oil.
