I eventually became more of a Mitch Mitchell fan than a Jimi fan. Weird, huh.
?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:11am markr:

Bit of trivia: that's Mitch's voice as the proper British interviewer on EXP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 3:13am pacific standard simon:

There was a point where I had listened to so many Hendrix boots that I never wanted to hear another version of "Red House" again in this life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:14am markr:

Yeah that's one he pretty much played every night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 3:15am pacific standard simon:

OK, this is the ultimate Mitch drum part. I DON'T LIVE TODAY
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 3:17am pacific standard simon:

This out-Keith Moons Keith Moon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:21am markr:

I love Keith Moon, but I'll take Mitch over Keith Moon any day of the week. Keith was flashy and fun, but he was also often drunk and out of control. Without John Entwistle, that band would have gone totally off the rails. Mitch was more skilled (was he jazz-trained?) and definitely more under control and able to anchor the band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:22am markr:

PS I'll be commenting a lot on the board tonight because I don't want to take any valuable Jimi time away from the airwaves with my jibber jabber. So I'll be jibber jabbering over here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 3:26am pacific standard simon:

I think I agree with you about the drummers. Mitch did play in jazz band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:28am markr:

Yeah, it shows. Very swinging--nice cymbal work, tasty tom tom action. Not that I'm some kind of drum expert, but I have listened to a fair amount of Max Roach, Art Blakey, Buddy Rich, Kenny Clarke etc. in my time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 3:29am pacific standard simon:

Jimi read Fantastic Four comics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 3:32am pacific standard simon:

There was an awesome documentary that ran on the Pacifica radio stations in the early '80s about Hendrix. Lots of good stuff that later turned up as bonus tracks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:32am markr:

And Ray Bradbury
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 3:34am pacific standard simon:

Montery Pop is running later this week on Turner Classic Movie channel. Turn on, tune in, drop out.
  Mon. 9/18/17 3:35am Ajay:

Oh man...an all Hendrix session. My Monday in Amsterdam is blasting off the perfect way

Visited Monterey in the summer and stood on the same stage where he performed. The burn marks onstage still visible where he set his guitar alight. A trip!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:37am markr:

Amazing, Ajay. A holy shrine, for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 3:40am pacific standard simon:

It still amazes me that he didn't like his own voice. So much better than Dylan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:41am markr:

Yeah he was so shy and self-conscious I guess he'd record facing away from the control room. The only time he was really happy with a vocal was "Have You Ever Been to Electric Ladyland." He was very happy with that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:51am markr:

I think maybe he's chewing gum...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 3:52am pacific standard simon:

One of the things I really love is "Doriella Du Fontaine" that he did with the Last Poets. I hope you have that up for later. Totally off the wall, for rock expectations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:53am markr:

I'm sorry, I don't--I wasn't even aware of it. Seriously, we could do a whole other show (or two) of all the stuff I'm NOT playing tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:54am markr:

I just thought of that great Steven Stills track he played on, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 3:56am pacific standard simon:

It's true, that's why the Pacifica show lasted for hours and hours. And hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:57am markr:

Well I've only got three. I had to make some tough calls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 3:58am markr:

Love the phase shifters on Mitch's drums here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 4:00am pacific standard simon:

We'll have to agree to disagree there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 4:06am pacific standard simon:

BTW, I love my Circle Time t-shirt. I wear it to work every week, advertising the station and the show. Doubt it does any good, but it's worth a try.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:07am markr:

Very cool, glad you like it, it fits OK? Who knows, you might help recruit a whole new gang of Left Coast weirdos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 4:11am pacific standard simon:

It's from a good manufacturer too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:13am markr:

That's good to hear. That's the work of our recently retired Assistant Station Manager Liz Berg. She was responsible for a lot of the amazingness that occurred at WFMU in her 12 years here, including, of course, her show, which was one of my favorites.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 4:15am pacific standard simon:

Wow, no more Liz Berg signed letter after the marathon? That's kind of a stunner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:18am markr:

It was. Liz leaving and Wm. Berger dying in the same week was a little much to take. We''re all hanging on by our fingernails (emotionally) around here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 4:22am pacific standard simon:

I remember where I was when I heard about Jimi. Talking with my 9th grade buddies about "Spoonful" and Neil Young during lunch break .
  Mon. 9/18/17 4:28am Hippie Jesus:

Thank you for doing this, Mark. I will revisit this show many times in the archives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:29am markr:

Glad you're enjoying, Hippie Jesus. In one way or another, I've been preparing this show in my mind my entire life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 4:32am pacific standard simon:

A couple of weeks later I was watching a live PBS TV show of a concert featuring several San Francisco bands, when they announced that Janis Joplin had been found dead in a motel. Then reporters were sent out to ask the musicians what they thought about that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 4:39am pacific standard simon:

In some ways, The Cry of Love is may favorite Hednrix album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:41am markr:

I love it, too. Jimi was enjoying a very fertile songwriting period in the summer of '70. Those songs on "The Cry of Love" are among the best he ever wrote.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 4:41am pacific standard simon:

I like how Kramer and Mitchell finished it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:43am markr:

Billy Cox said he and Jimi would sit around hotel room, unplugged, and work out what he called "patterns," little riffs and things that grew up into whole songs. Then Jimi would write lyrics to go with them, or maybe attach some lyrics he already had. I think Jimi enjoyed collaborating with Billy a lot, it was a lot more fun than sitting alone in a room with a guitar and a pad of paper and the ticking of a clock.
  Mon. 9/18/17 4:46am bnowb:

Jimi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 4:48am pacific standard simon:

I'm a Billy Cox fan too; I think it's a shame there wasn't a Hendrix Mitchell Cox megaband in the '70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:50am markr:

Right, with added musicians as needed--keyboards, horns, whatever they wanted, but the three of them would have been the core. I think that would have been amazing. Jimi had a lot of plans, he just ran out of time, man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:51am markr:

Sorry, Simon, I know you've been "Red House"'d to death, but this is my very favorite version and I had to play it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 4:51am pacific standard simon:

With Miles Davis on trumpet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:52am markr:

Is there really a tape around somewhere of them jamming? It's not necessarily great, by the way. But I'd sure love to hear it. Ever hear the soundtrack to "The Hot Spot," with Miles and John Lee Hooker jamming? It's amazing, I should play that one sometime.
  Mon. 9/18/17 4:55am flightless:

Awesome show markr, thankyou. Happy Birthday Jimmy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:56am markr:

Actually it's Happy Death Day, but...any excuse will do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 4:57am pacific standard simon:

It's widely rumored, but I've never heard of a real copy. "The Hot Spot," on the other hand, is a wonderful real thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:58am markr:

I mean, there couldn't have been a long term band with both of them in it, because they were both leaders. But a jam session here and there or a special concert would have been marvelous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 4:58am markr:

Apparently they shared a girlfriend, although I'm not sure Miles knew it at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 5:00am pacific standard simon:

BTW, you can save the Harry Dean Stqnton tribute for his birthday, July14th. It's my birthday too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 5:30am joeray:

Heavy metal hoedown at the end of Steppin Stone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 5:32am markr:

Yeah they were gettin' down fo' sho'!
  Mon. 9/18/17 5:46am Ajay:

man, that was a great show! Jimi forever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 5:54am markr:

Thanks so much for tuning in everybody. Next week, back to 100% freeform.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/18/17 5:56am markreichard:

This is my favorite part you guys. This groovy, jazzy little instrumental. So mellow after all that violence and madness.
  Mon. 9/18/17 12:05pm gregg:

yesssss!!! its very very ok, you picked a great version. ya know, jimi is so seminal, so completely required, and engrained in everything that came after him that we tend to forget to listen to him sometimes. at least i do. so thank you for giving him a due and proper tribute!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/18/17 8:38pm thedunkel:

Lots of Jimi! Lots of Goodness!
