Album: Live At Woodstock
Complex says: This is the last thing Hendrix played at Woodstock but it also seems like the last thing he ever played in life—though that night was still nearly a year away at the time. A master cellist named Rufus Cappadocia did a note-for-note every-speed-bump-intact rendition of this song at a Black Rock Coalition Town Hall Hendrix tribute years ago. After hearing that it was impossible not to recognize that Hendrix truly was as great a writer of symphonic themes as any of the 4 B’s—Bach, Brahms, Beethoven, and [James] Brown. Yeah we said it, we meant it, we even represent it.
