but its quite not in agreement with my current playlist, i'm listening to all sorts of horrible loud thrashy screaming wishing death and evil upon the world kind of stuff and here you are posting a really cool riff laden song with
Ray Gillen on vocals ( have you heard his seventh star album on Black sabbath? ) it is one of the really underrated albums they have made.
solo at 3:23 is really nice and no wonder I
on the subject of Sludge, its normally associated with stoners and people who are in no particular hurry to sound fast, the slow pace of the songs and distortion add their own heaviness to the songs.
ok fair enough. I stopped listening to Sabbath before that album (but still listen to everything else), but will check it out.
If you never heard this then you should, this was the start of it all, but few know this, probably Jimi's heaviest, grittiest, grungiest.
But oddly from his most soulful album. Unfortunately the 'technology' of music of the time was not where it is today and the drums and bass don't do justice to what Jimi is doing.

I should get a guitar again. I had to sell off mine for the move.

TRAFFIC LIVE AT SANTA MONICA 72
Thanks for that, I most certainly am going to enjoy it. I got 10 minuites in (note the long hair man! ), but will give it time justice when I get home later.
Linking this here as might interest and similarly I wish to read it later.

Anecdote: Coincidentally his UK home is near where I grew up, and near where my parents lived until recently. My mother used to participate in the country sport of 'beagling' (hunting on foot with a pack of beagles). In the season the beagle-pack would get invites from landowners, and hence they'd have a schedule of farms and estates they were invited to hunt at.
I remember visiting back home one time (c1990?) and my mother describing her day out:
Her: 'It was a lovely day, and the owner couldn't have been more charming. Apparently he's quite a successful musician'.
Me: [Curious yet cynical] 'Oh yes? What's he called?'
Her: 'Um Stephen... ... Stephen Winwood'
