Hendrix did Voodoo Chile and Voodoo Child (Slight Return) both on Electric Ladyland. Different songs. Stevie Ray did a cover of Voodoo Child (Slight Return).
Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

$250 for an amp? wow. is it worth it to invest that much in the amp?

they are both different songs one being named voodoo chile and the other being voodoo child (slight return)

so the main differences are the content of the songs and one ends with E and the other ends with D (slight return)

Voodoo Child was just a jam session that came out with a song, while Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) is the end result, and the actual song.

You're wrong, don't confuse things. It's Voodoo Child (Slight Return) and Voodoo Chile.

They were both supposed to be called Voodoo Chile (which is just a phonetic spelling of how he sang Voodoo Child). Voodoo Chile was just a big ole jam session that they kept and put on the record, when Jimi listened back to it he liked it but thought they should do a cut-down, more refined version, but the album was due to be pressed a couple of days later, so they ended up spending all night in the studio recording what was supposd to be Voodoo ChilE (Slight Return). Jimi immediately had to add it to the sleevenotes for the album, and because he was tired and in a hurry to go home and get some sleep, he accidentally scribbled down Voodoo ChilD (Slight Return), and he only realised he'd done it when the album hit the shops with the two different spellings. So now you know.

I've also heard that someone tried to change the name of the album from "Electric Ladyland" to "Electric Landlady". Jimi was pissed off, obviously.

On a related note, Voodoo Chile is way superior to Voodoo Child (Slight Return).


i have to disagree there, voodoo child (slight return) has to be one of the greatest pieces made in my opinion.

Voodoo Child is great too, but Voodoo Chile is just epic. Without a doubt the best blues jam i've ever heard.
It's got everything. Amazing guitaring, a great drum solo and a great organ solo.

Not sure how I know this, but I'm pretty sure SRV's cover of the song is called "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)", but Hendrix's were "Voodoo Chile" and "Voodoo Child (slight return)".

And on an unrelated note...supposedly Jimi borrowed the licks for this song from one of Buddy Guy's performances in England. Someone said something about a video of Jimi in the front row with a tape recorder....if anyone has found that video on the net let me know!
