RAINBOW BRIDGE “Tribute to Jimi Hendrix”


1 in stock


RAINBOW BRIDGE “Tribute to Jimi Hendrix” (U.S. Private) 1980  Absolutely great tribute to Jimi lp  M-/M- small press rare now

By this wicked heavy-psych guitar trio places this crew in the top echelon of Jimi Hendrix explosives, no weak tracks on the album, that’s for sure.
Yes, along with the Badcat Records cat, we’ll readily admit that we’re all in on Hendrix-influenced outfits (Purple Fox, Velvert Turner, etc.).  Guess than makes it pretty easy to figure out how this album joined our collection too…
Musically and sonically RAINBOW BRIDGE “Tribute To Jimi Hendrix” is pretty dang excellent, sonic rushes of wah-wah and feedback “Jimi” guitar raining down all over the place on all the tracks staying pretty much true to the Hendrix originals, no easy task…   Featuring the talents of singer/guitarist Bill Baker and brothers  John and Ron Holswade (bass and drums respectively), the album title gives you a pretty good overview of its contents – in this case the trio working their way through eight of Hendrix’s better know tunes.  Baker and the Holeswades are quite good in their roles as the “Experience”.  They certainly have their Hendrix moves down pat.  The album has excellent deep & wide sound quality – far above what you’d normally expect from a vanity project.  It’s quite impressive with a good pair of headphones and a Belgian beer (etc) in your hands.
