Riff: Jimi Hendrix – “Let Me Move You”

Mar 4, 2013

You know you looking so good mama/Have you ever been moved?/C’mon let me move you

from Let Me Move You lyrics by Jimi Hendrix

In the stylized way in which history remembers Jimi, it’s easy to forget his days grinding it out on the chitlin’ circuit. This is his way of returning to his roots, conjuring up a bit of Chuck Berry panache. On vocals is Lonnie Youngblood, who begs and pleads for a shot at love; [LISTEN].
