Jimi Hendrix Plays A Kazoo On "Crosstown Traffic"

Jimi's song "Crosstown Traffic" on his "Electric Ladyland" album from 1968 was recorded 50 years ago! And now that I JUST found out that's a homemade kazoo (a comb with cellophane over it) that Jimi is playing on that song, doubling with the guitar line, I realize that Hendrix was very much on-the-spot-resourceful! It must have come from his 101st Airborne Army training as a paratrooper! Or, he had just done some really good acid and felt like f*cking around in the studio with a kazoo.....Hendrix Kazoo
