    Machine Gun prototypes?

    I can hear some melody lines in the Woodstock' Hear My Train A Comin.
    And Jimi used part of MG lyrics in Earth vs Space jam at Newport Pop.

    What are the earliest live prototypes of the Machine Gun?

    The above mentioned performances would have been before he played Cavett, however.

    What do you mean with prototypes? Concerning the basic pattern it seems to have evolved from Catfish Blues > Hear My Train > Voodoo Chile (slight return) > Machine Gun with probably some other songs (Izabella?) thrown in along the way. If you talk licks and phrases, there must be dozens more.

    Certainly, the ending of I Don't Live Today / The Star Spangled Banner on 24 may of 1969, at San Diego, there are some machine gun shoots and cries. It's a real Machine Gun prototype.
    And if I see you no more in this world,
    Then I'll meet you in the next one -
    And don't be late
