... that were to become his image-the strutting star of the sixstring
who played it upside down, around the back, with his
teeth, and generally with a lot of gusto.
The London of 1967 was, of course, going through its own
peacock transformation. "Swinging London," with its Mods
and Rockers, The Beatles, The Who, and The Rolling Stones,
Mary Quant, Lord Sutch, and Brian Jones, Jimi's stone buddy
in the heyday of flower power and psychedelic society. All of a
sudden, it was Jimi's world, and the lanky left-hander was on
top of it. He was more than just a novelty-a black American
raver cavorting with the cockney pretty things-he became the
mascot of the whole Brit-pop movement.
This accounts for the absolute cheerleading atmosphere that
prevailed in the studios of the "Top Gear" radio show when.
Jimi exhorted them to "get their hearts together" and join him
in a rendition of the blues-drenched "Hear My Train A
Comin'." "I see we got some friends laying around in this
studio," he said, "We're gonna lay some blues on you ...can
you dig that?" Then he sang a few verses of funk and 'Tm
gonna leave this town, leave this town. I'm gonna be big. I'm
gonna make a whole lot of money, baby, and come back to this
town, and 1 might even get a piece of you." That was to
become prophecy as Hendrix exploded like a supernova, and
the exuberant fans in the radio studio audience (as well as the
ones in the listening audience) that night and the others
collected on Radio One would henceforward have something to
tell their grandchildren about.
With Ryko's release of Radio One, bolstered by Joe Gastwirt's
digital mastering and Alan Douglas' wizened ear, the rest of us
will have that pleasure, too. Radio One is a treasure for those of
us who keep track of the limited supply of recorded evidence of
The Master's work, featuring as it does seventeen great versions
of songs we love, half of them selections not often heard on
"official" recorded sets. While "Purple Haze," "Stone Free,"
"Foxy Lady," and "Hey Joe" are interesting as "live" versions of
the same arrangements as on the official records, there are
fascinatingly bent renditions of "Killing Floor," "Love and
Confusion," "Hear My Train A Comin'," "Hoochie Coochie
Man," and "Fire." Thank God the tapes were rolling.
And there are cute vignettes of Jimi Hendrix the showman,
Jimi the evangelist of the Goodvibes Church of the New Rising
Sun, burning the midnight lamp with a cosmic grin. There is
the "Radio One Theme," Hendrix goofing on the role of the
cosmic radio announcer, playing as white as possible, spinning
off a jingle from the top of his head-"Radio One, you're the
only one"-as he inaugurate the event. And the wild
renditions of other people's classics-these are manna from
heaven. Jimi slashes through "Day Tripper" with reckless
abandon, obviously enjoying this romp through John Lennon's
song repertoire. Though Ryko purposely keeps the issue
vague in its position about the controversy about whether
that's John Lennon there doing the choruses and falsetto "day
trippers," Charles Shaar Murray, in his otherwise authoritative
Crosstown Traffic, states unequivocally that it's John Lennon
"joining in on the lead vocals." Alan Douglas says it's not!
What he heard from Noel Redding is that Noel sang it,
accounting for the nasal Brit accent on the tape.
There's nothing white about his version of "Killing Floor,"
though, and it's captured here on tape much as he would have
played it at many of his live shows-with passion. This is the
Jimmy James approach to a Howlin' Wolf classic in an
updated Muddy Waters country blues pattern, with lead and
rhythm integrated firmly. Ouch! There's just some great blues
on this album. There's also a real Muddy Waters tune,
"Catfish Blues." To me, the chance to hear Jimi stretch out in
this live setting with this bluesy material is one of the added
pleasures of Radio One. From the point of view of Jimi's
development as a musician, the time-frame has Jimi at the
peak of his interest in his own musical roots-not the shifty
slickness of soul, but the deeper, Mississippi Delta-born
motherlode of blues, which Jimi approached as a historian,
uncovering more and more gems in his research. "Catfish
Blues" reveals the blues scholar Jimi, having studied the
recorded works of Muddy Waters and John Hammond both,
and taken some from both, ironically pouring out this new
thing----experience.
When a musical genius has been dead for twenty years, the
discovery of a previously unreleased body of work becomes
an awesome event for those of us who study the master's
every nuance. When Radio One came out, it offered guitar
scholars a whole new palette of sounds to investigate,
correlate, appreciate, and imitate. The book you are about to
read will become your indispensible guide to that pursuit.

DRIVIN' SOUTH

I WHOLEHEARTEDLY AGREE WITH THE LINER NOTES TO RADIO ONE, BUT HAVE TO SAY THAT THIS HARD ROCKING INSTRUMENTAL IS DEFlNITELY
more than "worth the price of admission." It starts out in high gear and never once down-shifts. In fact, it seems to go into overdrive via an ascending whole-tone modulation from D to the key of E. Besides its entertainment value, there is truly a thorough education available here in the of art of playing blues and rock guitar. The study of Jimi's playing here will be the equivalent of years at the School of Hard Knocks for Aspiring Stringbenders and Licktraders. He uses all the scales common to these musical idioms, such as the "blues" scale ( 1 b3 4 #4 5 b7 ) and major pentatonic ( 1 2 3 5 6 ), plus he plays many of their characteristic riffs and licks, but in his own unique way that always transcends sounding cliched.
Since the dominant seventh chord is the harmonic base here, this chord's related scale, the mixolydian mode ( 1 2345 6 b7), is reflected in the key signatures. However, the notes used in this song aren't restricted to this particular mode, but these additional notes are used in a logical manner, often functioning as what are called chromatic passing tones. For example, during the first two beats of measure 11,he goes from A to G via Ab,the flatted fifth. Four measures later, he does a little more complicated move that involves delaying the resolution of the G note (which could be described, in this context, as a suspended fourth) by using E#as a leading tone into H, the third of the implied D7 chord (D F# A C). You'll also see these two ideas used frequently throughout this song in conjunction with partial chords, which is very pianistic and also fills up the consequential harmonic void when soloing in a power trio.

17 songs on the album of Jimi's live radio studio performance. Includes authoritative transcriptions for guitar, bass and drums with detailed players' notes/tablature and photographs for each composition.
