This book is full of errors, it's also full of unecessary hyphenated abbreviations that are quite stultifying, as 'n' [for an'/and], try'n' s'posed, ev'ry, brotha/bro' [for brother] etc., often when it's clear that the full word is being pronounced.

Spanish Castle Magic:
line 11 - You know it's a... isn't it
line 12 An' just...
line 24 - 'It puts everything else on the shelf' was the original line, but possibly due to [the story about?] Jimi losing the master of the final mix perhaps this is possible vocal mistake and it was overlooked? Replacing the 'official' words with: "Look out, you can hear you make me nervous-ah." The 'shelf' lyric was only used for the lyric sheet and sung during one BBC radio performance. He always chose to use a variety of differing ad-libs for this part when played 'live', so probably he wasn't satisfied with the original line anyway.
But [U]DEFINITELY NOT this: "Really let me groove you, baby" - FFS give the man a break!

"with Zodiac rides" ? Sounds like fun but I always thought it was "the zodiac laughs". I guess your version makes more sense though.

stplsd
08-08-09, 05:59 PM
Thanks for you response Roland, it's a pretty muddy sound, but I still think it sounds more like 'rides', and the 'Zodiac rides' would be on the 'Milky Way Express' -I presume?

The original mono single version has the clearest lyrics.
I much prefer Eddie's 1972 stero re-mix, though, as it brings out the amazing guitar solo that plays all the way through - stunning.

Corrections of my corrections, due to hearing the, much clearer, isolated vocal tracks from the games ‘Rock Band 3’ etc.:
Spanish Castle Magic has “you can hear you make me nervous-ah” and not “you can hear you makin’ up an acid?/nasty? song.”
It also has “here’s some [as in Janies’ book], ha-ha-ha.” and not “mushrooms”
Ain’t No Tellin’ has “Let’s-uh” and not “Miss-uh”
On Rainy Wish has (Line 22) “lilac” and not “violet”
Little Miss Lover has “oh-look at you, you look so heh-heh” and not “oh-look at you, you’re so good”
Freedom is “bought” [as in my earlier transcript and Janies’ book] not “brought”
