Band of Gypsys - We Gotta Live Together

Part 1



Part 2



Today, something very special. This is one of my all time favorite songs. It's written by Buddy Miles, and there are other versions of it, but none of them very good. This one however includes Jimi Hendrix, and as a result, is damn amazing.

This was performed live at the Fillmore East (like the other Band of Gypsys songs), a full 16 minutes long. The album versions are edited heavily. You have a 5 and 9 minute release, but to enjoy this song fully, you have to listen to this one.

Buddy almost turns it into a gospel session, the audiance goes truly apeshit on this one. However, this is not an official release (it's a bootleg), so around the first minute mark the quality drops. But in this case it isn't that bad, because it really sounds like you are actually there, instead of listening to a clean studio release.

I really suggest listening this one all the way if you are into some very, very groovy guitar. Enjoy!
