Hendrix - All Along The Watchtower
Hello Phil -
first&foremost, thanks a LOT for taking the time and sharing...well, whatever U'll choose to share - much appreciated, which goes to accompany a truckload of thumbs up and compliments for the many fine sounding, emotion conveying and often history making records U've helped come to existance.
"H" is for a question about the great (and sorely missed) Jimi Hendrix: he is often described as one of the nicest/most fun guys to work with and be around not only by myth making books etc, but by many of his co-music creators, aquaintances etc that I have had the pleasure to speak with/meet.
Is that your memory of him, too - and if so, why, or why not?
A totally tech-nerdy subquestion about "All Along The Watchtower": any idea or exact tech recollection of how the wonderful, "squishy" and fading then swelling instrumental section slide and then and wah wah solo guitar sound was recorded and obtained?
(I remeber Dave Stewart of Eurythmics raving abot that being his "Holy Grail" of mystery, unobtainable sound...and I quite agree!)
Thanks in advance and long may U rock - greets from the Adriatic,
