A Cover By Izzy Johnson On The Classic Jimi Hendrix Song “The Wind Cries Mary”
“The Wind Cries Mary” was written by Jimi Hendrix for his then-girlfriend Kathy Mary Etchingham after they had an argument and she ran off, only to come back after a few days. According to an interview by Q Magazine published last February 2013, Kathy Mary said: “We’d had a row over food. Jimi didn’t like lumpy mashed potato. There were thrown plates and I ran off. When I came back the next day, he’d written that song about me. It’s incredibly flattering.”
It was recorded on January 11, 1967 at the De Lane Lea Studios in London. It was then released on May 5, 1967.
