The Leaves

We all know Jimi Hendrix’s version of “Hey Joe.”  The earliest known recording of the song is by a Los Angeles garage band called The Leaves.  It recorded three versions.  The first, which is featured here, was done in 1965.  It then recorded a second version in 1966, but pulled it.  A third version, with a new guitarist, was released later that year and became a hit.
