    We still don't have an official unedited straight mix of Power of Soul either...are they resurrecting that experimental(?) mix again? I don't believe that was anything more than just a test...
    That didn't stop them last album from Following up Earth Blues with Somewhere, even though they have the same lyrics!

    I haven't seen this mentioned yet but IMO the horrendous new cover photo has been photo shopped to make Jimi look like a 2017 celebrity/rapper/sportsperson in order to appeal to a younger and broader demographic. I mean look at the face?? There's literally a hundred guys that with that face running around in the NBA/NFL or releasing hip hop albums. Such a shameful and disgraceful move by EH. I've always stuck up for Janie and EH but they've really lost me on this one, both with the cover and the barrel scraping of Jimi's studio material.

    I'm pretty sure they've already released the 'more complete form' on that 'Somewhere' single 'B' side, whether it was actually more complete or just had another verse from a different take cut into it is questionable? It also has a couple extra words in the chorus but some of the ooh-aahs have been mixed out or are missing:

    Come on back up to Earth my friend
    Come on back up with me
    We all been up through the night time, baby
    Now let’s reap the waves of reality-y
    Oh-yeah (of soul)
    (Yea-eah)
    Yeah (Yea-eah)

    We´ll see.
    Amazon states For this album, we present the mix that Hendrix and Kramer prepared of the complete song at Electric Lady on August 22, 1970.
    The version on the vinyl 7" b-side was mixed by Jimi and Bob Hughes(the sleeve says).
