Jimi Hendrix – Bright Lights Big City

Originally written by Jimmy Reed, this version was taken from a live recording at St. George’s Club in Hackensack, New Jersey. The recording is from 1965 which was before Hendrix was famous. At this point he had really just been a side man for The Isley Brothers, Sam Cooke, Little Richard, and others. It sounds like Curtis Knight is singing on this version of Bright Lights Big City which was released on the album Drivin’ South.

I would rather listen to Kenny GVote it up! (+2 rating, 3 votes)

  1. I’m sorry to be the one to tall you this, but that is not Curtis Knight’s voice. I lived with him for 16 1/2 years and spent a lot of time with him in the studio. It was one of the other band members, perhaps Nate Edmonds, although I can’t verify that. Curtis was playing rhythm guitar on that occasion, but he encouraged other band members to sing on occasion.
