Well, she's walking
Through the clouds
With a circus mind
That's running wild
Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams
And fairy tales
That's all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind

When I'm sad
She comes to me
With a thousand smiles
She gives to me free
It's alright, she says, it's alright
Take anything you want from me, anything

Fly on, little wing

I still find this thrilling. It's a stunning version of one of the best guitar songs on the planet. Jimi had a raw musical talent that glowed
This is still the shit. And Stevie RV version also makes me want to lay down and weep. 

Wow! I think I like this even better than the studio version!?! Would have liked to have be in the audience the night this was recorded, it sounds as if he really had his act together.

Mine too my friend!  Although I noodle on the guitar a bit, I don't think I'll ever try this since my hacking might damage any neurons involved in my enjoyment of this classic.

Might be sacrilege, but I have to admit that SRV's live version is my fav.  But both artists are sorely missed ...

We should all have circus smiles for people we meet.

What's with the ending!?!?  Guitar out of tune.
Maybe I'm wrong, maybe my ears are cheating me, but Paradise's sound seems clear than ever. New gear, Bill? {#Music}
I can't stop wondering what music JH would make when he would be among us today.
It is about 10:45PM EST here and no way to shut off RP tonight for the past 2 hours. I will be miserable at work tomorrow morning. WTF! Thanks Bill & Rebecca! And now the Derek Truck Band .. Dammit! 
Jeez Louise!     Bill, the Mpeg2/4 AAC stream is really good, really good....over
How did you guys know I'm working late tonight!!  Thanks Bill!!  You guys rock! {#Music}

Awesome! This is the verison of Little Wing from the original Hendrix in the West - still have it on vinyl.  Unfortunately, it didn't make it to the CD version of HITW due to legal matters and was replaced by a lesser version.  Oddly this version was recorded in London at the Albert Hall in '69 and not in the 'West' as the album title suggests.  Sorry for geeking but this is my fave version of this Hendrix classic and I've been missing it for years after I took my turntable out of commission.

Interesting. I didn't know that. I'll have to check out my CD of HITW now. 

This is my favorite version. A lot of nice covers out there (especially SRV's) but this has always been the standard.
