Jimi Turns 70

Two rarities from Mr. James Hendrix (and Mr. Robert Zimmerman) for Jimi's 70th birthday.   First, amazingly, rehearsing "All Along the Watchtower" on acoustic guitar in the studio--allegedly racing there after first hearing the song on John Wesley Harding.   Then, his take on Dylan's obscure single (which bombed, although I still own the Bob 45 that I bought back in '66), "Please Crawl Out Your Window," live on BBC.

Jimi was also: "Too Fast To Live, Too Young To Die, Bye! Bye!"
