Crosstown Traffic 45 by the Jimi Hendrix Experience

December 7, 2011

Jimi Hendrix will never be associated with top 40 radio. He had seven singles reach the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart but only one made the top forty. “All Along The Watchtower” made it to number 20.

“Crosstown Traffic” was released as a single November 10, 1968. It was not he usual AM radio fare of the late 1960s. Hendrix takes off on his guitar and the result is pure late 60s psychedelic rock.

The release managed to climb to number 52 on the singles charts. It may not have been a successful single but it was a great performance.
