    02 Hendrix, likely New York City or thereabout

    Early June New York City, Kettle of Fish, Greenwich Village, New York, USA Hendrix claims he met his “idol” Bob Dylan [at some point year not given]. But they were too stoned to talk, and just giggled.
    Bob Neuwirth (Dec ’64): Bobby Dylan and I occasionally ventured out into the poppy nightlife world. I think somebody who had met Edie said, 'You have to meet this terrific girl.' Dylan called her, and she chartered a limousine and came to see us. We spent an hour or two, all laughing and giggling, having a terrific time. I think we met in the bar upstairs at the Kettle of Fish on MacDougal Street, which was one of the great places of the Sixties. It was just before the Christmas holidays; it was snowing, and I remember we went to look at the display on Houston Street in front of the Catholic church... Edie was fantastic. She was always fantastic."

    Features two guitar parts by Hendrix, the second one played through a fuzzbox with Jimi imitating a trumpet.

    I’M A FOOL FOR YOU BABY (by unknown)

    You know why you can do anything
    You can say anything, see me when you want
    And you know I’m gonna be waitin’
    I thought I’d try it, you know why
    I just couldn’t do it
    ‘Cause I’m a fool for you, baby
    Fool for you, baby-y-y-y-y

    Some people go through their life never finding a true love
    But I’ve found out from you sometimes
    It hurts to be in love
    ‘Cause I’m a fool for you, baby
    Fool for you baby-y-y-y-y

    Why, you can do anything to me
    Say anything, see me when you want
    And you know I’m gonna be waitin’
    I-I thought I’d try it, you know why
    I just couldn’t do it
    ‘Cause I’m a fool for you, baby
    Fool for you, baby-y-y-y-y

    Fool for you, baby
    Fool for you, baby
    Fool for you, baby
    You know I love you
    You can see me any time you wanna

    Fool for you, baby
    Fool for you, baby
    Fool for you, baby
    You know I love you
    You can see me any time you wanna
    I’m gonna be waitin’
    I’m gonna be waitin’… I’m…

    This track is a re-recording of a Curtis Knight solo 45 A-side released only in the USA in 1963 on ‘Gotta Have A New Dress / When You’ve Got Love’ (Shell 45-312). The original single had no Hendrix involvement.


    GOTTA HAVE A NEW DRESS (Sampson Horton, Curtis Knight)

    Girls are all the same they play that gi’ me game
    They say they got to have a new dress
    Girls are all the same they play that gi’ me game
    Hey, hey, they got to have a new dress
    When they are only two it’s pink instead of blue
    They, they, they got to have a new dress

    When they are nine and ten
    It’s the same old thing again
    Look out they got to have a new dress

    Well, if they are nine and ten
    It’s the same old thing again
    They got to have a new dress

    From thirteen to nineteen
    They’re someone’s teenage queen
    That’s why they got to have a new dress

    Might be a meeting, might be a party, might be a record hop
    When they want somethin’, they’re short and sweet
    You’d better look out Mom and Po-o-op

    Girls are all the same they play that gi’ me game
    They say they got to have a new dress
    Girls are all the same they play that gi’ me game
    Hey, hey, they got to have a new dress
    When they are twenty two and they start chasing you
    Look out they got to have a new dress

    When they are only two it’s pink instead of blue
    When they are nine and ten
    It’s the same old thing again
    From thirteen to nineteen
    They’re someone’s teenage queen
    When they are twenty two and they start chasing you
    They got to have a new dress
    They got to have a new dress

    Listen, all these modern women
    Don’t know the value of gold
    They’ll wear a dress one time and then they’ll say it’s old
    They got to have a new dress
    They’ll say they got to have a new dress
    Hey, hey, they got to have a new dress


    THE UFO* [demo - Jimmy & Curtis] (Curtis Knight?)

    Now I decided I would solve the mystery
    ‘Bout that flyin’ saucer scare
    ‘Bout the UFO’s people been seein’
    And what’s goin’ on up there
    So I went to the most likely place
    Where I thought they’d come around
    Took a peanut butter sandwich and my binoculars
    And thought I’d have a sit down, to wait that is

    Then suddenly I saw it
    Doin’ about ten thousand miles per
    Why it landed right beside me
    And a strange voice said, “Good evening sir”
    If I knew that you were a man like me
    And you liked rock and roll
    I would have come to see you, friend
    A long, long time ago

    Now I’m the leader of a band back home’, said he
    ‘And you should see our go-go girls
    Now I’ve got a new dance I’m gonna show yuh
    That’s gonna solve all the problems in The World
    Now it’s good for rheumatism, heartache, misunderstanding,
    Space achin’ (on Earth I think you call that sore feet)
    Now here’s what you do

    Here’s all you got to do
    Now you take your little girl by the hand
    And you look her in the eye
    You put one hand on her shoulder
    And then you’re gonna try
    And you blah, blah, blah, blah, blah-blah [etc.]

    And I can still hear him sayin’ as they went away
    Who that you were a man like me
    And you liked-uh rock and roll, yea-eah
    I’d have come to see you, friend
    A long, long time ago

    Whoops you’ll say
    If I knew that you were a man like me
    And you liked rock and roll, yea-eah
    I’d have come to see you, friend
    And taught you the UFO

    One more time
    If I knew that you were a man like me
    And you liked rock and roll, yea-eah
    I’d have come to see you, friend
    A long, long time ago

    Mm-hm-mm-mm-mm-mm
    And the moral of this story is
    UFO means, “You found out.”

    *Jimi’s first recording with a sci-fi subject, he later went on to write several with sci-fi imagery/themes


    THE UFO* (Curtis ‘Knight’?)

    Now I decided I would solve the mystery

    Now it’s good for headache, heartache, misunderstanding,
    Space ache, I think here on Earth you call that sore feet
    Now just about the time he was gonna show me the dance
    He got a phone call from the space ship
    He said oh-oh I gotta go back home now

    And I can still hear him singin’
    As he winged his way back home
    If I knew that you were a man like me
    And you liked rock and roll yea-eah
    I’d have come to see you friend
    A long, long time ago

    If I knew that you were a man like me
    And you liked rock and roll yea-eah
    I’d have come to see you friend
    A long, long time ago

    If I knew that you were a man like me
    And you liked rock and roll yea-eah
    I’d have come to see you friend
    A long, long time ago

    There he go-o-oes, by-y-y-ye
