“Hey Joe” – Wilson Pickett

Apologies to Jimi Hendrix, but the Wicked Pickett’s cover of “Hey Joe” is probably the best cover of this garage-punk war horse ever recorded.

The 2nd best version? Probably Jimi’s though Patti Smith’s version gives me the chills. I guess there’s only one way to settle this … below are the Jimi and Patti versions. You tell me which is better.
