A long-loved part of Jimi Hendrix's early catalog, "Red House" was originally cut in 1966 and was issued as a great B-side. In the midst of his super-psychedelic sets, Hendrix would often riff on this one for 20-plus minutes to "cool the audience out." This is precisely what he did in a May 1969 show in San Diego, where this cut was culled from for The Jimi Hendrix Experience box set. A straight, Son House/B.B. King-influenced slow blues, the song is a spectacular showcase for his unparalleled guitar mastery, and is one of the finest live performances of his short but brilliant career.
