Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
Sunshine Of Your Love
Jimi gave one of his most memorable performances on this day. He performed “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” and an unforgettable medley of “Hey Joe” and Cream’s “Sunshine Of Your Love”. Partway through “Hey Joe”, Hendrix came to a stop and launched into “Sunshine Of Your Love,” dedicating the soon to the recently disbanded Cream.
In 1998, this performance was included in its entirety as part of the double CD BBC Sessions.
