Hey Joe





If I had to take one album with me into the afterlife, in the style of the Egyptian Pharaohs, one of the two or three candidates would be Are You Experienced, on which, "the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together", (Romans 8:22).


Listening to Hey Joe tonight, I'm blown away by Mitch Mitchell's drumming. He was on fire all through this album, especially on Third Stone From The Sun, but here he seems almost to seize the melody.

Listen to Hey Joe.
