Here is a digitized cassette which I originally got from my dear friend, Michael Fairchild. Since Michael was Alan Douglas' consultant at that time a few items are really special. Some are not, though, because they were recorded off of the Lifelines radio broadcast.

I would appreciate everybody's help to identify each of the tracks. What is worthwhile, and what isn't? What are the recording details of every item? Some are obvious and some are not.

Many thanks in advance for your comments.:homer1:

Thank you Kees! let´s check this out. I received two cassettes in the mid Nineties, which were also labelled as Michael Fairchild Tapes Vol. 1 & 2. At that time some of that stuff was pretty rare. I wonder if this is an upgrade or even more unknown stuff sourced from Michael....

Awesome, I await the verdict of the experts.

Whatever happened to Fairchild, anyway?

Mike still has his own website.

He is kind of bitter because he was dumped immediately when Experience Hendrix took over.

The Hoochie Coochie Man at least to me sounds like a big upgrade, makes me wonder if there is more from that date... and i don't think i heard that driftin outtake before. Some of the studio recordings sound a little fast to my ears.

Again, many thanks :)

I've never heard that version of Cat Talking To Me before. I'm familiar with the title, but the version I have is a completely different instrumental. Would this be a completely new track? Anyone familiar with it on bootleg? Maybe it's on a boot somewhere, but I don't have hardly any commercial bootlegs anymore. Or maybe it's from Lifelines, and I just forgot about it.

It's definitely a backing track to an unfinished tune, and a good one at that. A real rocker. New to me! Great stuff!

thanks to Michael Fairchild, and Kees too!

yes, this version of Cat talkin to me is an upgrade to mine. I also used to have it only on the "Michael Fairchild Tapes Vol1&2.....this is the original drumtrack from back in 196??. The more familiar version is the one from Studio Haze wich has Mitch´s overdubbed drums from 1988. This one is the original version. very nice! thank you again Kees!

There is a very nice description of the "Cat Talking To Me" session in John McDermott's new "Ultimate Hendrix" book. It took place on June 5, 1967 at Olympic. I wonder where the other instrumental on the tape comes from: track number 12. The one that is cut abruptly. I don't have a clue really, first I thought it was TTG but to my ears it sounds earlier. It reminded me that Jimi already was trying to do Instrumentals with the Squires in 1966, like Knock Yourself Out. The number on the MF tape has more or less the same feel.

Now that's a real mystery item!!! Who is playing slide? Alexis Korner? It would have been recorded in England then. It is the best club jam I ever heard. I just can't believe this is the only thing that survived from that very special night.

Oops, maybe I made a mistake. The trackcounting was done by Nero. Maybe there was some "dead air" on the tape. I'll play it again later.

Thanks! Korner played slide on the BBC version, but why would you assume he plays here though? Doesn't sound too much like him. I've seen this track dated as 1968, New York, but where does this info come from?
Sounds like it could have been recorded anytime from, say, 1966-68.

Ha ha::) that info came from me in the version of Plug Your Ears I did in 1992. Since the tape copy we got, originated from the USA I thought that it was an American jam. But I never could decide really: the piano playing still sounds a little European to my ears. I hope some-one will come out some day and give us more clues. I really have no idea about the participants other than Jimi in this jam.

Thanks for these. Some of these are huge upgrades. I think the Shokan house jams in particular sound way better than what I had already.

I'm still trying to find the time to add more details. I'm very thankful to Ayler for sorting things out. If I may propose suggestions for art work. I would go to Michael Fairchild's website for inspiration because I think all the items on this tape are a tribute to Michael for sharing them with us. A nice title would be "Rock Theory."

Difficult question: I've seen it as April 1968. I've always stuck by that. Does anyone have a clue? Jimi complained about "false compliments" in the Dick Cavett show as well.

Hello,

I had a chance to speak to Michael Fairchild a few years ago and he was very elusive about what he is doing. I am originally from Rochester, NY and Michael is still there and keeping up with his prophecy. I was hoping he would help lead me to a possible Rochester recording but he is a difficult man to talk to, especially about Jimi+recordings. Anyway, thank you so much for this and the artwork as well.

John
