As far as I can remember the first cassette tape I ever bought on my own was The Best of Jimi Hendrix Experience. My dad was a gardener and I worked with him mowing lawns all day. On the way home I begged him to stop by the record store so I could spend my days pay on some of Hendrix's music. I still remember the cashier saying "starting him on the classics huh," as i forked over the bread. In the truck I ripped open the cellophane and inspected every inch of the insert. We pulled up to the house, I jumped out of the truck before it had completely stopped and made a b-line for my walkman. I sat in my room all night just playing it over and over. That tape didn't leave the walkman for over a month. Jimi Hendrix's birthday was yesterday.
A couple of my favorite JImi Hendrix Experience Songs.
