Cover of Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix

From Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix and 33 other releases

“Fire” is a song written and originally recorded by Jimi Hendrix and released on the 1967 Are You Experienced album by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. The 1967 USA Reprise stereo remix was also subsequently released as a stereo single in 1969, outside of USA & Canada under the title “Let Me Light Your Fire”. One of Hendrix’s most played efforts, the track has been included on a number of greatest hits collections, including Jimi Hendrix: The Ultimate Experience. ‘The Experience’ frequently opened live concerts with this song.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers covered the song. They did so from their early beginnings, around March 1983, on a regular basis during their gigs. They recorded their version of Fire during the Freaky Styley sessions, but the song was left off of the album but released as a B-Side on a few of the band’s singles. When the band’s original guitarist Hillel Slovak died in 1988, the recording of “Fire” was added as a tribute to the late guitarist to the track list of Mother’s Milk, released in 1989.
