She's So Fine

Album: Axis: Bold As Love (1967)

Songfacts®:

  • This is one of the few songs Hendrix performed that was written by a member of his band. Noel Redding, who played bass in The Jimi Hendrix Experience, came up with this with little help from Hendrix. It was the first song recorded for Axis: Bold As Love. >>

  • Renfield from Long Island, N.y.I was revisiting this tune 52 years later and thought, "This is a Who tribute." I looked to see if anyone else thought the same and found Rob's comment. Funny because in the Spring of 1967 I saw Cream and The Who live in NYC and later in July 1967 I saw Jimi's Experience also in NYC. Thanks Rob!
  • Rob from Plainfield, NjGreat tune. Different vibe with Hendrix not writing and lead singing. (He wasn't always a frontman and played for some GREAT acts). Always thought this was a nod to Pete Townsend. Very "Who" sounding song, the Experience started out opening for the Who, Townsend & Hendrix were friends as a result and I can't believe Redding didn't pick up an Pete's style while they toured. (Wouldn't be surprised if Townsend actually contributed.)
  • Mark B. Stoned from Desperate Hot Springs, CaThis is such an excellent psychedelic-pop song. I love Hendrix's falsetto backing vocal. Beautiful.
  • George from Calumet City, IlGreat, underrated song. Noel Redding was a pretty good singer back then it seems.

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.

"Come On Eileen" was a colossal '80s hit, but the band - far more appreciated in their native UK than stateside - released just three albums before their split. Now, Dexys is back.
