I was turned on to Hendrix by a classmate at Holy Cross H.S. in New York who had read about the coming debut of this album. He bought it on the first day of release. In study hall the following day, he showed me the cover and told me how he stayed up all night, listening to this NEW musical experience. He wouldn't let me borrow it, so stopped to buy that very afternoon. you'll never hear surf music again. Jimi changed it all for me forever. Got to see him on Aug. 24.1968 at Singer Bowl in NYC. Chambers Bros, Janis Joplin and JIMI!! Ya shudda been there--
My buddies and I waited as the roadies finished stacking the Marshall amps one on top of the other across the stage at Redrocks. We were pissing our pants when "Jimi took over". How lucky can you be! If you were there let me know! I was living in Boulder at the time.
I am freaked out by the fact that I wound up on this board, with this topic, and I have the same name. My name is Peter Favaro. I know there is a guy in Bayside, Queens with this name. If that's you, someone has written a nasty post about you on ex-so.com. I did a little research on this thinking it was me, so if you want to get in touch write firstname.lastname@example.org (Sorry about the off topic post)
