Rock Band DLC

As announced earlier this week, Rock Band brings in its 2000th song home. How better to do so than with Jimi Hendrix’s Are You Experienced album? It’s tough to think of a way. (Though to be fair it’s a sort of Frankenstein “full album”, as you’ll see below.)

As with the previous Hendrix release, I’m not going to go too much into each song this time. The Jimi Hendrix Experience is a group with a lot more complexity and versatility than you might be thinking if you only peripherally know about Hendrix himself; it’s not a release just for guitarists, there’s so much here for all the instruments. Give them all a listen, particularly to some of the deeper cuts (re: not just “Purple Haze”).

Some notes:
– This version of “Fire” is live, thus different from the LEGO Rock Band import.
– “Hey Joe” is also live (from the Voodoo Child collection) and is the version linked.

    To repeat…
    And with its crutch, its old age and its wisdom,
    It whispers ‘No, this will be the last’
    And the wind cries ‘Mary’

    And to repeat again…
    Luv, luv, luv that song!

      We’ll make sure to get it, no fear. :)
