Jimi Hendrix's album Band of Gypsys was recorded over the course of two live shows. Various biographers have theorized that Hendrix used this album to achieve some political gain for black power activist groups. It was expected of him to use his fame to help further the activist cause. Band of Gypsys is super funky and truly allows Hendrix to let loose. Jimi is accompanied by Buddy Miles on drums for this album. Miles seems to give Jimi confidence with his stable and on point beat. Band of Gypsys contains the track "Machine Gun" whichwas described as "the premiere example of [his] unparalleled genius as a rock guitarist ... In this performance, Jimi transcended the medium of rock music, and set an entirely new standard for the potential of electric guitar," by musicologist Andy Aledort. "Machine Gun" is a cry to stop the war in Vietnam and speaks to the era which inspired Jimi's music. This album is one of Jimi's best, he really shines when he plays for a live audience.
