In music, so much is borrowed, sampled, mimicked and plain ripped off that some songs with different names are essentially the same lick. These two examples are no doubt to me plagiarized by admiration of one younger musician, Jimi Hendrix, to one older veteran musician, Albert Collins. Released around the same time period. Jimi got his start as a blues and r&b guitarist. And whom better than the incomparable Albert Collins to inspire a great lick and song by. Albert's instrumental, Thaw Out, sounds verbatim in structure and similar in tempo and drive to Jimi's, Drivin South, with a few lyrics thrown in. Both stand on their own as hard driving, searing blues guitar. Differing in one being a studio recording and the other recorded live. I just wish the live recording of Jimi's version was better captured. But his genius shines through. Boy he could scorch a guitar.
