I first heard Jimi Hendrix at a friend's house courtesy of this rare 1967 EP.
The guitar and the voice were fascinating.
It was also my first introduction to the Blues,as it was before I had heard John Mayall.

Albums were a luxury item for me and my contemporaries,so what we purchased was 45's.
It was not until 1970 that I could afford to buy my first album.
And what an album.

yeah,missed them.
and missed eric bibbs set.he (rarely) does the best version of ANGEL on BLUE HAZE-THE SONGS OF JIMI HENDRIX.
also just bought EXPERIENCE HENDRIX a dvd featuring
KENNY WAYNE SHEPHARD AND DOUBLE TROUBLE
LIVING COLOUR
HABERT SUMLIN
ERIC GALES
BUDDY GUY
ROBERT RANDOLF
MICK TAYLOR
BILLY COX,MITCH MITCHELL
and a great band called INDIGENOUS featuring MATO NANJE a great guirarist,who would make a good artist for BF 2010.

ALL THESE ARTISTS are doing hendrix songs.

i think this is a continuous tour in the states called EXPERIENCE HENDRIX that just changes artists.

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

Seems this has gone from a hendrix thread to a chubby thread(sorry bout that) but given we dont stand a chance of ever seeing hendrix this guy may be the next best thing-if he ever tours outside europe.

Davy Knowles (Back Door Slam) does a great "Red House". I saw both Chubby and Knowles in the Blues Tent at the Beale St Fest and while Chubby was ok, I thought Knowles was much better. Knowles and the BDS rhythm section have parted company recently. Knowles has been touring the US solo with Jeff Beck in April. Last year BDS toured with Govt Mule, with Knowles and Haynes jamming with each other's bands. See Knowles and Mule playing "Almost Cut My Hair" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZp5HevV9bs or "It Hurts Me Too" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHrj4-c57ho . Myspace has some great original tracks and covers ("What in the World", Willie Dixon; "Outside Woman Blues", Blind Joe Reynolds, also covered by Cream) http://www.myspace.com/backdoorslam

I am looking forward to the Hendrix covers at Bluesfest 2017
I am hoping that we will hear some of the lesser known tracks.

Peter Northcote on guitar will be a major highlight of this act.
Very much looking forward to it.

Hendrix's voice was so important.
Difficult to replicate.
Who are the best vocalists from those listed to perform ?

In forum posts past there have been reports of the many Hendrix covers played by the diverse acts, so this is a great act for Bf to present- a real sleeper and it will fill a tent amongst anyone who has done their homework and loves good aussie musicians who play for their livelihood.

I agree Steve Edmonds is excellent!
If you get a chance, check "The Bandeleros" playing around Sydney.
One of the best drummers ever heard lends support.

An apt bump, especially when you consider that the previous post was about Davy Knowles. Maybe I have to add him to my list of acts to see.
