The True GIft

So, I'm sitting hear watching VH1s "classic albums" doing "Electric Ladyland"; and I'm seeing how one of the greatest rock albums of all time was crafted from moment to moment.

I had forgotten how much I loved "Burning of the midnight lamp; and "Rainy Day Dream Away" "Long Hot Summer Nights" and "House Burning Down" and... you listen to it, and theres Jimi, completely unmistakable, but if you didn't know it was Jimis playing, it's completely different music than you'd expect. Jazz, blues, gospel, classical... Just awesome stuff.

Every minute that goes by, all I can think is how much Jimi had. He had the true gift, and nothing in this material world can touch that.
