Jimi Hendrix's Angel

I love the song "Angel" by Jimi Hendrix, but have had a damn hard time finding an original copy on YouTube that I can download.  Yeah, there are some very good covers, but I'd like to find the original and grab an MP3.

If you know of where I can find one, please let me know in a comment.

Here are some good versions on vimeo:  -  original  -  if you like Hendrix, you'll like this mellow version

Here's some of what YouTube's got:  -  an odd, (I think), version  -  Fiona Apple cover, which I like - nice instrumental cover

While we're on the topic of Hendrix covers, I'd be remiss not to mention this video from Jess "CHECK OUT THE BOOBS!" Greenberg.  Yeah it's "Little Wing", not "Angel", but she does a good job, and she does have nice boobs: .

Return of the Chicken Wire Gang!

A long, long time ago I wrote a post about the Chicken Wire Gang, a bunch of talented guys who played some tunes in Chapel Hill, NC.   Well ladies and gentlemen, I am very please to announce that they have apparently regrouped, at least according to their Facebook page: .

For a sample of their music, check out these videos on YouTube:

"Buddha, Buddha, Buddha" -

"Grand Mamoo", live!  -

"Pine Tree Shade"  -

Some guy even made a tribute video to them!

Long live the Chicken Wire Gang!!
