Who likes this song I think its great!

It has great guitar playing and makes some pretty cool music.


But my question is who actually still likes this song?
So what do other people these days think of the oldie?

Cheers,

Great song, but Stevie Ray Vaughan's version of it was even better.

Great Song! Just heard it yesterday.

SRV's version is fine, but Hendrix's is the best - why degrade the original and the mind who thought of the song in the first place.

Me. Most intense start of a song, stolen by Slash and others on concerts.

Absolutely intense and mindblowing riff, solo and lyrics, that show Hendrix's poetic talent.

Not to be confused with Voodoo Chile, which is softer, but as trippy.
The subject of this thread is actually "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)".

Who gives a sh*t, but I suspect many would dig it as well. But would soon switch back to Green Day and Mando Diao.

One of the P-51 race planes at Reno used to be called "Voodoo Chile" but everyone, announcer included pronounced it Voodoo Chili so he changed it to just Voodoo.

Hell yeah, it's one of the greatest songs for guitar ever penned.

I love Hendrix, but would also concur that SRV's version is better- I have Voodoo Chile live by Stevie from a few dozen different concerts and every one of them just peels the paint of the walls.  Smile

The whole damn Electric Ladyland album is fantastic (including the cover relased in the UK). While I'll admit SRV's versions are very good, they're just a bit too slick and polished for me. Jimi had the raw balls hanging out - that's what makes his stuff just a cut above to me.

I love both the SRV and Hendrix versions but I have to give the slight edge to Hendrix....for some reason the slightly distorted sound on his opening guitar riff sounds better to my ears.

Have you heard some of SRV's versions live? They're raw and all-out, just like Stevie played.

Hell, I love them both.

the BBC Sessions CD.

Another one done by both Jimi and Stevie was Little Wing.

Jimi's version had vocals, SRV's just instrumental. On SRV's, which I think does have more nuance, you can hear the amp buzzing on the quiet parts. It's just one of the most amazing songs I've ever heard and am amazed by it every time I hear it.

Damn I miss Stevie. And Jimi.

Both of them did so many common songs, it's spooky. Third Stone from the Sun is another good one.

I agree fully

Also,
I think the best version is the 14:00 long live from woodstock version, It has real attitude and grunge it is distord and as he say were just jammin' and Its true its just layed back and jammin' it goes for ages but you can listen to it 15 times over.

Not especially. I'm a musical snob though, so don't be suprised.

Voodoo Chile's good however.

Not only voodoo Child boy...but also all the rest of jimi hendrix and jimi hendrix experience. I've got practically all his discography. What a complete, creative and fantastic artist he was .

thanks to my brio I really got into Jimi. I made an A380 model of Rootsair in my own colours called bob Marley. I'm working on a 744 which I will call jimi Hendrix

This would suit Little wing .....tho in Ray Vaughan's version its not sung..

SRV used to do many Hendrix tunes live.......Ive seen him a few times....in fact, I was still in the conert and a couple of 100 yards away from the helicopter when it crashed....I don't think anyone realised what had happened....certainly neither did I, nor anyone else....

it was a VERY foggy night that night...I still remember being the "lead" all the way from Alpine Valley (where the concert was) to the border of Wisconsin/Illinois..

I had a very difficult time seeing the hood of my car, let alone the expressway...

I still have my ticket stub for SRV's concert..

its was actually an Eric Clapton concert headlining with Robert Cray and then SRV as the opening acts.

As a finally, SRV, Clapton and Robert Cray played "sweet home chicago" together..

i was very sad when I heard the news... Sad


Anway,Jimi rocks and I can still play Vodoo Chile on my guitar... biggrin
