    Ist mention that Jeffery is involved too. Note the timing (NME Friday 14-10-66), the info would likely have reached the journalist the day, or shortly before the band left for the Hallyday gigs.
    This second only mention of his name in the UK press also has him as just 'Jim', although a French paper dated 15th already has him as 'Jimi' in a report from 14th and the French program for the Olympia show, no doubt printed prior, has him as 'Jimi' too. The band name 'Experience' is first mentioned only on Thursday 3 November in Disc, although they get his name wrong: 'Jimmy Hendricks Experience' the band name is not on the first pressing of Hey Joe either and it is seldom used in the press prior to Purple Haze' being released, except for some club date ads:

    The day Jimi and Chas got on the plane in the US, in the UK it was announced (Friday 23-9-66 in NME) that Mitch had plans for after his last gig with Fame (1-10-66) - until Chas phoned him (the day after he picked up his severance pay packet from (one of Chas' mates) Rick Gunnell's office). Note: Larry Page was Mitch's 'producer' (and quasi 'manager') with the Riot Squad, prior to him joining the 'Flames'.
    Two days after he joined Jimi it was announced (Thursday 13-10-66 Melody Maker) that Mitch's group was to be ['have been' Ed.] called, 'Mitch's Mates':

    'This Week's Singles', Record Retailer reviewed Hey Joe for 'the trade' Thurs 22-12-66. (why is it displaying sideways?!)
    It was also reviewed on this day by Record Mirror and Disc. NME reviewed it next day, Friday.

    Has anyone seen a proper review of Hey Joe in Melody Maker? I've not seen one. Did they just miss it? Or was their 'Jimi Joins Track' short (22-12-66), as much of a review as it got by them?

    Tony Hall in his 'My Scene' column, in Record Mirror (Thursday 29-12-66), is still pushing Hey Joe. It has just appeared on their very dodgy chart for that week, it is the only paper that has it in their chart (it is not in sister paper Record Retailer's chart either) that last week of December. It also appears in their even dodgier 'R&B' chart. The chart had this discalimer underneath:

    “We should like to point out to readers that the British charts this week are provisional, owing to early printing over the Christmas period. The returns were taken from a limited number of retail outlets in the London and Liverpool areas, and the R&B are also provisional. However the charts will resume their full accuracy next week.”

    The cowboy cover (with gun in his guitar) that week seems quite appropriate
    Anyone know who he is?

    P.S.
    Radio London has had Hey Joe on their chart since Sunday 11 December and have likely been playing it since at least 25 November!

    Tony Hall (Record Mirror 16-03-67) ‘What’s Your Policy For A Top Forty Radio Station?’ “[...]
    From my investigations, I've found out that there's recently been a trend towards an accurate Top 50 of genuine sellers. Not on [radio] London, where new records are really exposed. But certainly on Caroline. And their list is supplemented by paid-for spots on records not yet in the charts. By big names and unknowns alike. Even the Beatles' single wasn't played on Caroline till it had actually entered the charts*. Whereas London played it about two and a half weeks before release. In fact, the best 'in' gag I've heard this year is that The Beatles were going to award London a Silver Disc for 250,000 plays on their current record!

    *Hey Joe did not enter Caroline’s chart until 29 Jan 67


    Paul McCartney (International Times 16-01-67): “Stockhausen isn't played on Radio London every day, so there's not much of a chance of him becoming an idol over night.

    Paul McCartney (OZ magazine, May ‘67): ‘POP’ “Have you ever tried to listen to BBC radio? Can anyone be really serious about suggesting it as an alternative to Pirate Radio? Let’s suppose in fifteen years time or whenever it’s going to be the BBC does set up a pop station [less than 15 weeks actually, 30 September 1967! Ed.]. Can you imagine it; the mind breaks down and whimpers. The dead touch of “live performance” again. By those people. Not the pop groups themselves ['those people', ie the (musicians union) BBC Northern Dance Orchestra playing their own arrangements of the ‘hits’ of the day. John Peel bears witness that they even played a version of Purple Haze! Ed.]. It’s balls to say that pirates injure record sales. Most people only buy records because they’ve heard them on the air. Los Angeles with 28 FM stations and 26 AM stations, most playing Top 100, 24 hours a day buys more records than London. London’s population is three times that of Los Angeles.”

    Tony Hall still pushing Hey Joe in his 'My Scene' column in Record Mirror (Thursday 5-1-67).
    Note: their 'back to normal accuracy' Top 50 chart has Hey Joe dropping 3 places down to the Retailer's, new entry @ (41). And they dropped it a whopping 8 places on their dodgy R&B chart - the only UK paper to have one.
    Note the Retailer chart gives radio chart position for several pirates: London @ 18 (this is actually the previous week's position) & Radio 270 @ 98 presumably they were running a 'hot 100' - a ludicrous idea in the UK.
    Disc also had it at 41 NE, but Melody Maker had it down at 48 NE (a figure Keith Altham remembered 'it was bought' in at although he didn't name the paper) NME only had a top 30, so no HJ.
    After persistent accusations in the media, (mid-'67) MM admitted that it was likely that the lower reaches of their charts had been compromised in the past and were dropping the 50 in favour of a top 30 (like NME always had), Disc followed suit and shortly after that Disc just ran the MM chart. Only Retailer, the only UK 'pop music', subscription only, trade paper, (the most easily corrupted as it used such a small selection of shops compared with NME & MM) retained a 50 chart - its chart was used by Record Mirror - who, in turn, ran the UK's only R&B chart (very dodgy, but probably not of great importance) which Retailer published from time to time.

    2nd appearance and promos for Bag O' Nails and the 7 1/2 Club, under 'Club Scene' in RM's Pop Talk - in 2 bits:

    Beyond any shadow of a doubt THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE is the ‘in’ thing with London ‘in’ clubs — he’s worth a fortune to any West End Club sensible enough to book him. Last Wednesday he appeared at the Bag O’ Nails—“sensational” is not a word adequate enoughto describe his success there. The club was so packed it was almost impossible to breathe. Among the ‘faces’ who gathered to watch him were BILL WYMAN, PAUL McCARTNEY, MIKE WILSHER, DONOVAN, KEITH MOON, TONY HALL, BRIAN EPSTEIN, VIV PRINCE, TONY BOOTH, GEORGIE FAME, TWIGGY, BOBBY ELLIOT, ERIC CLAPTON, PETE TOWNSHEND, LISA MINELLI, ALLAN CLARKE, CHRIS DENNING, JOHN ENTWHISTLE, RINGO STARR, DENNY LAINE, TWINKLE, PHIL MAY, PETER FENTON, THE FOURMOST, etc., etc., etc.
    He also drew a great response when he began a week’s residency at new London club THE 7½ in WHitehorse Street. The 7½ is an interesting new club with live entertainment by groups who play from 1 a.m. in the morning.

    Almost a repeat of the previous day's ads (almost 1/2 page also) in Record Mirror, Disc and Melody Maker , but just a 'P.' now, instead of the full 'Paragon' title of the publicity company. What is the odd shape of the, amateurish, writing supposed to signify? It looks like he's maybe supposed to be cloaked in writing? This new 'groovy' ad appeared in every pop paper - except, probably, the Retailer, at least I don't remember seeing it there and it's not in my notes.

    Cat, Hendrix - Walker tour dates, AYE progress, club dates, Marquee bullshit - and totally smarmy photo of later muslim convert fanatic, cowardly shit bag, nut job, who incited others to murder. Famous and respected internationally, novel writer, Salman Rushdie, because some muslim fanatics didn't like his novel 'The Satanic Verses' [at this point any self respecting government would have gone into action] (a great read by the way everyone who believes in free speech (and wants to learn a bit about the birth of islam in an imagined though informed (there is not much actual history of the time apart from a pishing contest about how to limit personal freedom and subjugate women the most (even no music etc.) written by competing arseholes as to who 'remembered' what 'what's his name' (just by-the-way a sexual molester of a 6-year-old child (according to 'hadiths' ie stories treated as 'holy'), who he (45 ~ years old) fully raped at the age on nine!) said (he was illiterate, as were his psycho followers) and what it meant) and very entertaining way, it's mostly not about that, it's just part of the story) Cat 'Yusef Islam' (puke!) Stevens who shit on his Greek family and should be in jail in the UK for incitement to murder. Why is this arsehole not in jail - because we don't want to upset muslim fanatics?

    You may not like it, but this is all FACT
