I really enjoy his tone on this track from People, Hell and Angels. I'm no Jimi afficionado, but on this track his guitar seems to be a bit growlier than usual. Does anyone have any insight to his setup, and how it (if it did) differs from his usual?

Thanks!

Rainbow Bridge was a great album, highly recommended to any Hendrix collector or fan. The versions of the songs were picked as best, hear My Train a Comin' is the best version. Earth Blues is tight.

Dig up copies of Rainbow Bridge and Cry of love...
You wouldn't believe what I just got today from my aunt...about 200 "records", including Rainbow Bridge and Cry of Love. I got all kinds of stuff, from Janis Joplin, Stones, Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder, Santana, Pink Floyd, Marshall Tucker Band, on and on.

I'm pretty stoked!

That's awesome, congrats!

No idea what Hendrix used on Earth Blues...

You are joking I hope.
a big P&W board. How else could he get such a righteous sound?
One of my favorite later Jimi tracks. The new Rainbow Bridge CD is great. It's actually the first CD issue of the album though the album was the second posthumous (mostly) studio album released. Many of the songs have also been reissued on the some of the newer Jimi CD releases too but the mastering on the Rainbow Bridge CD is more sane...not slamming into volume wars range.

standard jimi gear. Strat, wah, fuzz, vibe, marshall and fender amps. He started using his flying V a little more in the later years too. You can hear it on the odd track.

Awesome album. Though Jimi never released many duds. Before or after his death.

I'll take the rough edges. I've heard killer straight-up organ trio stuff with Mike Finnegan, the rest of BOG at Fillmore, and on and on. Now that Jim Morrison/Johnny Winter jam is another story.

Johnny Winter said that he never met, let alone jammed with, Morrison. That recording is a mess, mythical JW presence or no, though.
