Jimi Hendrix – Live at Woodstock

22 09 2010

Listened: Friday September 3

Jimi says Live at Woodstock is the sound of a new band “just jamming”. Anyone in a professional band probably gets a little annoyed when they hear that – when Jimi “just jams” he blows everyone out of the water. Even while he’s high (someone in the audience asks him if he is and he confirms).

I remember seeing the Woodstock movie when I was a teenager and hanging my mouth open at Jimi’s part of the film. I saw all the moves and tricks and I still said “Wait, how does he do that?”

This is one of my favorite work albums. The jams and grooves are so long they help with concentration. I’m sure everyone is sick of hearing the Star Spangled Banner coming out of my office by now.
