The Shadows of Knight - Hey Joe

I'm probably milking the Hey Joe thing a little too much, but I couldn't overlook one of my favorite versions of the song. Recorded in 1966 by Chicago band, The Shadows of Knight, it's a unique version with Joe Kelly's lead guitar work creating a great raga feel to the extended jam. This appeared on the band's second and final album, Back Door Men, for the famed Dunwich label.
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!

  1. Wow that is fantastic! Been a long time since I listened to that. You are right - the lead work is great throughout. I did the single chord playing behind the verses by Kelly too.

    1. Joe Kelly was a hell of a guitarist.

  2. Also, keep the Hey Joes coming. There has to be at least one or two more.
