'Freedom' by the Jimi Hendrix Experience

REVIEW: Experience Jimi Hendrix Live on 'Freedom: Atlanta Pop Festival,' Legacy Recordings >>

Just like Ray Charles was one of the greatest country singers of his generation, Jimi Hendrix was one of the greatest blues guitarists of his. Jimi wanted his "Red House" blues to be included on his 1967 'Are You Experienced' debut, but it wasn't. On the new 2-CD (or four-sided vinyl) 'Freedom: Atlanta Pop Festival' live album (Legacy Recordings), he plays it and plays it hard.(as well as 15 others) just 74 days before his death.
