It was on May 3, 1968 that Jimi Hendrix and his crew spent an entire day playing one song, “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” over and over again in the studio. The resulting track has been covered dozen of times by top guitarists, notably Stevie Ray Vaughn, but no one has ever come close to Jimi’s version.
