Jimi Hendrix - First Rays Of The New Rising Sun: Wikipedia Album Entry
This for me was Jimi's Finest Hour; He had matured as an artist and tunesmith. Pali Gap was and still is my favourite instrumental by any artist including "The Shadows" who I love. The tracks originally appeared on a series of albums after his untimely death; and was only released in its originally intended package in the 1990's.

Somebody has to sing
Hello, my friend
So happy to see you again
I was so alone
All by my self
Here I come to save the day
A little boy inside a dream just the other day
His mind fell out of his face and the wind blew it away
