Watchtower was Dylan's song....which is why I said, in an earlier post, that I "preferred Dylan and Hendrix". Dylan's lyrics and Jimi's guitar....Watchtower had the best of both.
You are correct about Mason...you will also read how Jimi was a freekin' perfectionist (at least with this song, he was).
"Are you experienced"?
"The Jimi Hendrix Experience began to record their cover version of Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" on January 21, 1968, at Olympic Studios in London. According to engineer Andy Johns, Jimi Hendrix had been given a tape of Dylan’s recording by publicist Michael Goldstein, who worked for Dylan’s manager Albert Grossman. "(Hendrix) came in with these Dylan tapes and we all heard them for the first time in the studio”, recalled Johns. According to Hendrix’s regular engineer Eddie Kramer, the guitarist cut a large number of takes on the first day, shouting chord changes at Dave Mason who had appeared at the session and played guitar. Halfway through the session, bass player Noel Redding became dissatisfied with the proceedings and left. Mason then took over on bass. According to Kramer, the final bass part was played by Hendrix himself. Kramer and Chas Chandler mixed the first version of "All Along The Watchtower" on January 26, but Hendrix was quickly dissatisfied with the result and went on re-recording and overdubbing guitar parts during June, July, and August at the Record Plant studio in New York. Engineer Tony Bongiovi has described Hendrix becoming increasingly dissatisfied as the song progressed, overdubbing more and more guitar parts, moving the master tape from a four-track to a twelve-track to a sixteen-track machine. Bongiovi recalled, "Recording these new ideas meant he would have to erase something. In the weeks prior to the mixing, we had already recorded a number of overdubs, wiping track after track. [Hendrix] kept saying, ‘I think I hear it a little bit differently.’” The finished version was released on the album Electric Ladyland in September 1968. The single reached number five in the British charts, and number 20 on the Billboard chart, Hendrix's only top 20 / top 40 entry there. The song also had the #5 spot on Guitar World's 100 Greatest Guitar Solos."
I'm not saying that was the demise of Hechingers but everybody I knew that was in construction and hunted wouldn't set foot in there.
The NRA is a single issue organization and has been maintaining a list like this for quite some time. Those paying attention would have known that already. The list is nothing more than opposition research. The individuals and organizations on the list have all earned the privilege of being included. They have demonstrated beyond any doubt that they are the enemy when it comes to 2nd Amendment rights. Itís a war. Spend your money wisely. Donít give it to your enemy so that they can use it to beat you over the head.
This country is seriously divided with no end in sight.
I want it both ways.
Ben and Jerry's and my "Assault weapons".
According to the list, The Baltimore Sun isn't NRA friendly. I guess gun nuts will stop posting.
It should be noted that IMO the list is way to short.
We've happily handed over our country to the pacs to be run by the pacs, for the pacs. Why does this surprise anyone? You live in an oligarchy which means money makes right. Of course there are going to be enemy lists.
