Great 7″ singles from the past

17 March 2023

On 17 March 1967, this day 56 years ago the late genial guitar hero
(27 Nov 1942 – 18 Sept 1970) JIMI HENDRIX and his experienced tandem,
bassist Noel Redding and drummer Mitch Mitchell released their second
single, the rad classic called PURPLE HAZE.

Hendrix about the song: “The song we had named ‘Purple Haze’ had about a thousand, thousand words. I had it all written out. It was about going through, through this land. This mythical land, because that’s what I like to do is write a lot of mythical scenes. You know,
like the history of the wars on Neptune.”

“Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don’t seem the same
Actin’ funny but I don’t know why
‘Scuse me while I kiss the sky”

Studio version.

Live version.
