An extended instrumental cover of the Jimi Hendrix song of the same name. It was performed by blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan and his backing duo Double Trouble. It was recorded in 1984, but was never officially released until 1991, where it appeared as the 4th track on his posthumous compilation album The Sky is Crying.

Containing none of the lyrics of the original, yet maintaining (and in some ways, amplifying) the emotions present, SRV’s cover of “Little Wing” is one of his most beloved recordings and regarded as one of the greatest guitar compositions in all of rock.
