I can't remember his name off the top off my head. I think the Standells recorded the first version. My fav version is Deep Purple's from 'Shades Of Deep Purple'.
I like the Deep Purple version as well as the Jimi Hendrix version. It's an old song and made in lots of versions and genres. Yes, it is on The Standells album "Dirty Water" from 1966. It was released from the label Tower in the USA
A garage/psych staple. Many great versions.
Another great version is a 13 mins release with the band Fever Tree on their album "For Sale" from 1970.
I looked up this song when I was listing a bunch of different versions in this thread https://www.classicrockforums.com/threads/covers-uncovers-remakes-etc.37707/. It has along and confusing (and confused) history. Every garage band in the 1960's included it in their set lists. It was second only to "Gloria" as a must-know song for any garage rocker.
Wikipedia has a very detailed, and mostly accurate, article about it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hey_Joe
Probably the key to both tunes being so "must play" in the Garage Band market was the fact that each possessed a considerable amount of working depth and yet seem like songs fairly easy to learn.Amazing what some of the sixties writers did with just a few chords and not many(if any)particularly tricky changes or chord patterns.Simplicity has filled the bill many times in rock,going all the way back to the "three chord" pioneers........
