Jimi Hendrix video - Gloria


Recommended Posts

Wow, that was cool. Never seen that before, some GREAT footage there [thumbup] (Youtube just keeps on giving :))


some song facts

Jimi Hendrix's version of "Gloria" was first included on the 1979 compilation, The Essential Jimi Hendrix Volume Two, as a 7 inch, 331⁄3 RPM, one-sided single. It is also included on the 2000 released box set, The Jimi Hendrix Experience. His version was not a traditional cover he included entire verses of his own creation, and appeared to be ad-libbing as he went along. The lyrics included lines about drummer Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding.

Yes I've always liked that one, great rough one-off. Hadn't seen all of that footage though. They were so powerful weren't they? The Lulu show was around the same time or a bit later.

Also'The Stars That Play With Laughin' Sam's Dice' is such a classic and his solo entry still does me in everytime to this day.

'The BBC Sessions' is live-in-the-studio and unmissable, and I can really recommend to any Jimi Hendrix fan who hasn't heard it the 'Live at Clark University' CD which has by far the greatest live 'Purple Haze' I have ever heard. Trust me.....


And they're all gone now.
