Riff: Jimi Hendrix – “Earth Blues”

Mar 4, 2013

On a mountain stands a woman/Hey I feel her shining light/Love must be the answer/Thank you Lord and keep her alright

from Earth Blues lyrics by Jimi Hendrix

Jimi strips away the psychedelics and opts for a cleaner, more streamlined sound, embracing his deep affinity for blues and funk. He laments over Earth’s trite sensibilities, and how the only point of salvation is love – a woman’s love; [LISTEN].
