There desperately needs to be a Stevie Ray Vaughan list here.

so why doesn't "axis" make his top echelon albums?


Nice catch George. I would never refer a new Hendrix fan to Blues before ABL.

Hendrix's lists should just read '' Listen to anything and everything studio'' and then have some of his better live takes....

Also, he needs a lot more songs in the studio version. For starters, Third Stone from the Sun not being there is sacrilege

Blues has his most intense playing of any studio album, by far. Once I Had A Woman, Born Under A Bad Sign, Bleeding Heart, Jam 292...it's all guitar devastation.
Axis has some really beautifully-crafted stuff but I dunno, I'd take Blues over it for pure quality playing.

Well, doesn't the purpose of these lists dictate that they be somewhat biased? All we're doing is putting down the best performances by guitarists, not the objective greatest ones. At least, I don't. I think the Hendrix list can go up soon, after Neg adds Red House.

And I guess I could work on some SRV list.

its a mixture of both really, the greater ones most certainly also go up to indicate their importance, but the best lesser appreciated ones also do. and the Hendrix list is most certainly incomplete without Third Stone from the sun, its as important and great as it is one of his best performances

Well, the greatest pretty much always ends up being one of the best sounding ones that would end up here anyway so w/e.

Fine, add Red House and 3rd Stone and then put it up.
Once I Had A Woman is still his best studio performance though. :biggrin:

SRV list? Hmmm...

Riviera Paradise
Testify
Lenny
Leave My Girl Alone
Little Wing
Voodoo Child
Crossfire

These come to mind immediately.

Good names, don't forget "Texas Flood", "Pride and Joy", "Scuttle Buttin'", "Couldn't Stand the Weather" and "Rude Mood" though. "Tin Pan Alley" is damn good too!

Yeah, Rude Mood! Knew I was forgetting something.

I'd say Texas Flood if it wasn't so repetitive (he just does the same little phrases over and over). Same with Dirty Pool.
