Riff: Jimi Hendrix – “Mojo Man”

Mar 4, 2013

I see electric flames ya’l/They, are, burning all over/All over me

from Mojo Man lyrics by Jimi Hendrix

By featuring guest vocalists it’s easier to pinpoint the creative direction Jimi was leaning towards. Albert and Arthur Allen push forward at a blistering pace, turning this Motowny cooker into an instant dance floor igniter. Not much to dissect – just a shut up and dance track; [LISTEN].
