RIYL: blues, rock, blues rock

Label: Nude Berries Comikz

Here at SlyVinyl, we love getting turned onto new music. ¬†In late 2014, Newbury Comics introduced the world to¬†a man named Jimi Hendrix. ¬†Prior to their¬†much-needed reissue of his debut album, Jimi was nothing more than a distant memory…an artifact of a time long ago when men and women freely enjoyed mind-altering drugs,¬†engaged in promiscuous sex and had conversations with little to no help from their cell phones.

Legend has it that in 1955, Jimi Hendrix was enjoying a slow dance with his girlfriend at a local sock hop called Enchantment Under the Sea when a short and strangely-dressed white kid got up on stage and played what is now called a “guitar solo”, shredding a blues riff with a completely different tone and style that was at least 20 years ahead of its time. ¬†It changed a lot of lives that night including Chuck Berry’s, whose brother was in the band playing at the dance and held a telephone up to the speakers. ¬†Chuck Berry went on to change rock and roll forever and start a successful restaurant/pee cam franchise. ¬†Jimi Hendrix, unfortunately, only played at a few unsuccessful festivals like Monterey Pop, Woodstock and the Isle of Wight before he died from vomit sickness. ¬†Right, I haven’t heard of these festivals either. ¬†Anyway, if you like blues, rock, or blues rock, check out Jimi Hendrix and grab the 113th edition of Electric Ladyland after the ‘buy’ link.
