Hendrix plays guitar on the session, but none of the tracks were released and the masters were destroyed in a warehouse fire. Personnel: Ray Sharpe - vocals, King Curtis - tenor sax, Jimmy Hendrix - guitar, Cornell Dupree - guitar, Chuck Rainey - bass, Ray Lucas - drums and Bernard "Pretty" Purdie - drums.
New York City, Cheetah, New York
Opening night at Cheetah. It’s claimed Hendrix met the Chambers Brothers and was invited to sit in with them, using Willie Chambers’ guitar, (on their opening night? invite an (almost) complete unknown up? to take over guitar? - very unlikely).
