I was listening to some Mingus and was about to check out some Willie Dixon when I found this little treasure.

Originally written in 1959 as a eulogy for Lester Young


There were several covers of this song over the years. Joni Mitchell even added lyrics. 
But I like Jeff Becks version perty good.
I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering, "I love you" repeatedly as they struggle to break free.

This is a dialogue; in the original, Roy Harper sings both parts; Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush separate it:

Speaking of Clapton, not many guitarists dare to do a Hendrix song, for obvious reasons, but his version of Little Wing is almost as fab as the original (thanks partly to Duane Allman playing with him), but very different.

Clapton is okay.  I prefer Stevie Ray Vaughan's instrumental version



SRV is my greatest guitar hero. The night he died he had played a concert with Clapton and Robert Cray.  When they interviewed Clapton about it, he said:
Quote
We played on the same bill on his last two gigs. On the first night, I watched his set for about half an hour and then I had to leave because I couldn't handle it!. I knew enough to know that his playing was just going to get better and better. His set had started, he was like two or three songs in, and I suddenly got this flash that I'd experienced before so many times whenever I'd seen him play, which was that he was like a channel. One of the purest channels I've ever seen, where everything he sang and played flowed straight down from heaven. Almost like one of those mystic Sufi guys with one finger pointing up and one finger down. That's what it was like to listen to. And I had to leave just to preserve some kind of sanity or confidence in myself.

Original, you've probably heard it a bajillion times, particularly with Glee covering it a while back.


Northern Kings cover, which IMO is amazing:

To go back in time in this thread...

Speaking of Clapton, not many guitarists dare to do a Hendrix song, for obvious reasons, but his version of Little Wing is almost as fab as the original (thanks partly to Duane Allman playing with him), but very different.

Worst version ever, by Sting:



My favorite version of this song was the instrumental version done by my favorite guitar hero, Stevie Ray Vaughan. 
Studio version from The Sky is Crying

I think he also played drums on this version

Live version


man, I miss him.
