The 10 Best Covers of Jimi Hendrix Songs
We pick the 10 best covers of Jimi Hendrix songs, featuring SRV, Jeff Beck and The Cure.
09. Emmylou Harris, "May This Be Love"
"May This Be Love" is one of the best things about Emmylou Harris' super-atmospheric 1995 album, Wrecking Ball. Harris, who had built her rep as a country star, enlisted producer Daniel Lanois (U2) and took some chances in terms of direction and eclectic song choices.
Thus the presence of a Hendrix track sandwiched between songs composed by Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch. Harris and Lanois (who plays guitar on the track) devised their own highly satisfying arrangement — and it works.
