I couldn't choose between the 2 versions of Jimi's
fierce and brutal, guitar-grinding statement.
The theme is obvious ofcourse, some songs are about the river
and some are about the state (the state's in?!).
Not only the music here's great (I only bring you the best, d'oh)
the lyrics are well worth listening to also!
And yes, David Murray does a great job without 'em :-)
