    1966-01-21 Atlantic Studios, New York City, NY

    Friday 21 January 1966
    New York City, Atlantic Studios, New York, USA

    Studio session by Ray Sharpe and the King Curtis Orchestra with: Jimmy – rhythm guitar
    Song: Help Me (Get The Feeling) part I / part II
    Composers: ‘King’ Curtis (Ousley), Cornell Dupree [NOT!]
    Lyrics - Ray Sharpe [probably], music – ‘Gloria’ by (Ivan) 'Van' Morrison.
    Producer: ‘King’ Curtis (Ousley)
    Released: USA 1966 7” 45 single
    Label: Atco records, Catalogue number: 45-6402

    The tune is a rare thing, a straight copy of a European (Irish) 'R&B style' tune by Van Morrison's band 'Them' - 'Gloria'. More bizarrely Curtis Knight plagiarised the title and theme of Ray Sharpe's lyric for his 'Get That Feeling' - an overdubbed vocal over an edit of a Hendrix jam at PPX studios in 1967.

    I think Ray Sharpe is supposed to play the lead guitar on this. Which leaves the chord work to Dupree and Jimi with the dampened string part, "chucka chucka...".
