Artist: The Jimi Hendrix Experience
LP: Axis Bold As Love
Let’s call it a throwback Thursday. “Up From The Skies” is the first song off of Jimi’s ground-shattering LP “Axis Bold As Love” (after the acid-noise psychedelic intro track, of course). It also is one of Jimi’s most endearing tracks, ever. There is the simple and attractive ‘wowing’ guitars, setting the tone and time for the song. The shuffling drum line /rhythm section is subdued yet catchy and toe-tapping. Jimi’s wonderful blues rock guitar riffs move left and right through the stereo field. It’s uncomplicated, and it’s a timeless classic. Enjoy!
