  1. Hendrix fans... What in your opinion was the best song and album out of all of Hendrix's releases?

    Best song for me is Castles Made of Sand and the best album is Electric Ladyland.
  2. Electric Ladyland / 1983 (A Merman I Should Turn To Be)

    Haha yea the dudes amazing I wish I could have seen him play.
  6. Don't we all.
  7. For Hendrix, you simply cannot narrow it down to one best song. But, for Experience, I'd have to say Electric Ladyland stands at my favorite for the Experience.
  8. Crosstown Traffic / Electric Ladyland

    I still have it as my ringtone and get compliments for it all the time.
  9. Yeah, because they're always so different.

    pick up my axe and fight like a farmer is a classic line
  11. Definitely. Hendrix had a very wide variety of music to offer. What he left in 3 years time is amazing.....if only he were alive.
  12. Album? i'd say electric ladyland

    Song? This version of Angel

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGLnR34XqQs]Angel (Jimi Hendrix) - YouTube[/ame]
  13. favorite album from start to finish is probably cry of love. seems pretty underrated.

    as far as my favorite song goes, i'd have to say it's a tossup between angel and voodoo chile (not slight return)
  14. I dont know man, you just cant pick one song when it comes to Jimi. Power of Soul, Machine Gun, Love or Confusion, Purple Haze, Manic Depression, The Wind Cries Mary, Red House, Have You Ever Been, I mean this guy and his bands wrote so many amazing songs its just too difficult.

    As far as best album, well for me its Are You Experienced. It has the most amount of songs on a Jimi album that I like. Axis and Electric Ladyland are very good but they both have tunes I skip over, but I usually play Are You Experienced from start to finish.
  15. I can't believe no ones named Stone Free, or If 6 was 9
    Two of my favorite tracks
  16. Electric Ladyland, followed by Are You Experienced.

    As for songs, damn it's hard to choose.
    There's; All along the watchtower
    Purple haze (a great MJ strain too)
    Voodoo Chile
    Machine gun
    Crosstown traffic
    Are you experienced
    Little wing
    Wind cries Mary
  17. I forgot manic depression too
  18. Everything he made is legendary
  19. my fav song is let the good times roll off electric ladyland which is my favorite seems to be the consensus with alot of people here
  20. My favorite is jimis blues CD although as I said before everything is amazing.
