Jimi Hendrix - Ezy Ryder



I've been listening to this one a lot lately. I get the impression not that many people know about this song, my guess is it was not that popular. But it's really a gem, I just love the feel of the song. The song's lyrics are said to be insprired by the 1969 movie of the same name (you know, that one with Dennis Hopper).

The completed song was originally released on the 1971 album The Cry of Love  – the first posthumous album of original material compiled by The Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell and engineer Eddie Kramer. As well as featuring on posthumously released live albums Live At The Fillmore East and Blue Wild Angel: Live at the Isle of Wight, "Ezy Ryder" was included on the 1997 compilation First Rays of the New Rising Sun along with the rest of the songs from The Cry of Love.

Jimi Hendrix was a God when it came to the guitar, it's a shame he had to go out the way he did.
