we would turn out the lights , turn it up and have to hold onto something then when we heard "you may never hear surf music again we knew the ride would gently end .

3. An amazing tune, especially when you consider that was made somewhere around 1967.

Way, way ahead of its time. It still makes some modern music sound primitive. It's tied for my favorite by Jimi, "1983...A Merman I Should Turn to Be" being my other favorite.



That gets me high just listening to it.

4. Mitch Mitchell was such an important part of Jimi's sound

His jazz background and the fullness he provided to that trio with his ever present subtle chops made him the best rock drummer of the era, in my opinion. He could play with the raw power of a Keith Moon and also the fluidity, complexity, restraint, and soulfulness of a great jazz drummer. Mitch was a devotee of Elvin Jones and Max Roach. Jimi in fact called him "my Elvin Jones".
