I dunno d.....I tried WIKI, ALLMUSIC, IDBM and any other source I could think of and can't find any info on any 1984 by Hendrix. Was that JIMI Hendrix, or some OTHER guy named Hendrix? wink




Oooops, yes I meant "1983", his epochal future-dystopian track on the ELECTRIC LANDLADY alb grin ....here covered, in the spirit of the thread, w/violinist Nigel Kennedy playing most of the song's themes, including the aforementioned spookifying bs line & a whole series oof other arrangement alterations.

Here's one I heard for the 1st time just last night by an artist I'd, somehow, also never heard before.

Somewhat an acquired taste (she hits somewhere in the orbit of Billie Holiday & Macy Gray but w/a country blues flavor), KD had an apparent penchant for breaking up the usual cadential & melodic flow of songs.
Dig what she did to Marvin's song here.

ORIGINAL

COVER
Besides her, uh, Appalachian jazz take on the vocal dig the consecutive gtr solos [1:50~2:20] twothumbs

Pretty cool...I do a little country version of You Really Got a Hold on Me by Smokey Robinson, but if you want to get back in the woods, these guys do a whole lot of Mowtown Bluegrass:

One of my all time fave covers. For me, a cover has to bring something different to the table for it to be worth doing. The solo slays me, for upending all expectations.

Scott, that intro scared me as much as when I was a kid & played Mom's copy of "Stranded In The Jungle" by the Cadets (see below) & later covered by the New Yawk Dolls (not posted for the reason yer abt to read).
I'll have to return to it another time.

I endorse that, as might be garnered from my selections so far.

Here's one you'll rarely hear.
The cat even attempts the gtr solo ! {1 min mark]

Those were all pretty good. And y'know, some "covers" I find I like BETTER than the originals. For example, I never had any use for this tune originally, but I LOVE this cover of it! roll

Yeah, DanA, Li\una's a monster.
She not only does those market-targeted covers [1] but she's a legit trad musician [2].
If one watches her techniques she's really just a fantastic player.
Dig....
[1]
She does lotsa covers but here's one of my faves...also relevant per gtrs rawk

Some might wonder what a gtr's doing in the "trad" mix but that's what keeps music of any culture from becoming just a museum piece & alive/relevant.

Hello, 21st C !

Q for them pay'n' attention:
The gtr cat seems to be doing the Bootsy foot (i.e., stomping in time w/tambourine on foot ..but whence the tambo ? ! idk

That's a really old version, pre 1992 when I started mixing them. After I took over the sound duties Purple Haze got a LOT louder, heavily overdriven, & drenched in feedback. Big fun.
Kronos also does a transcription of Hendrix's Woodstock 'Star Spangled Banner'.
