  4. Going original baby, Jimi all the way! Same with Little Wing...
  5. Im gonna have to go with the original too, no one beats Jimi! I like the SRV version to though.
  6. Melvin Taylor & The Slack Band
  7. Jimi's live version on the BBC sessions is one of the most spine-tingling things I have ever heard. The cut on Electric Ladyland just doesn't compare.

    IMHO the best version is by "The Hamsters"
    Absolutely brilliant!

    A great song that is overplayed to the extreme. I have to go with Jimi, but SRV did a hell of a job with it as well. As far as Little Wing, Jimi again but there is a fantastic guitar player named Monte Montgomery that I saw do Little WIng live and it blew me away.

    I second The Hamsters!

    Absolutely cool!
  11. Jimi's performance on Live at the Fillmore East is tops for me.

    I saw Buddy Guy this summer in Chicago and he launched into an awesome rendition.
  12. what no poll? i think SRV's live versions of voodoo chile were awesome but also Kenny Wayne Shepard's version is way up there too.
