Thread: Your fav Hendrix cover? (pick one!)

  1. #26
    Derek and the Dominos Little Wing - my favorite by far. I didnt even recognize it was the Hendrix version. I thought they were 2 different songs. Slow hand did a nice job, not by "covering" Hendrix, but by making it his own. Best song on the Layla album!

    ...avoiding any implication that I have ever entertained a cognizant thought.

    Tell that to SRV. Did you actually listen to FM's version of "Red House"? I have dozens of Hendrix performances of that song and FM's is quite different. Now, his version of Voodoo Child (the slow version) is another story.

    Hendrix covers often tend to be quite underwhelming, but Kingston Wall's version of Fire is quite intense.

    Damn.
