  • The bass line on this track is simple, and terribly low in the mix, which makes me miss Noel Redding and the drumming unfortunately doesn’t capture me like Mitch Mitchell used to
  • The reason I criticized the low bass earlier is because with The Jimi Hendrix Experience, whenever Hendrix would take off on a solo, you’d still have an extremely solid rhythm under the solo due to Redding’s bass line

      Lullaby For The Summer is an instrumental by Jimi Hendrix which appears on his posthumous album, Valleys Of Neptune. The track starts off with a guitar riff coming through the left channel before the music picks up and it starts coming through both channels.

      Thus far I wouldn’t say that there’s a very dominant tone to the song, not really very blues-rock sounding but at the same time not extremely


      psychedelic sounding.

      The bass line on this track is simple, and terribly low in the mix, which makes me miss Noel Redding and the drumming unfortunately doesn’t capture me like Mitch Mitchell used to.

      However, Hendrix’s guitar solos all throughout this track still manage to really grab my attention and keep me into it.

      I said that there isn’t any very dominant tone on the track but a lot of ...


      • this is due to the fact that the bulk of this song is really just Hendrix soloing.

        The reason I criticized the low bass earlier is because with The Jimi Hendrix Experience, whenever Hendrix would take off on a solo, you’d still have an extremely solid rhythm under the solo due to Redding’s bass line.

        Nevertheless, the solos on this track still sound excellent but the rhythm section is certainly

        not what Hendrix had in The Experience.

        If, for some very strange reason, you were never really into Jimi Hendrix’s guitar solos or just solos in general, then I would firmly say to stay away from this track because the entire instrumental is really just Hendrix soloing for about four minutes.

        However, if Hendrix’s solos managed to captivate you and impress you, then this is certainly a track to be listening to.
