    Cool Happy Birthday - Version

    Hi all,

    First at all, sorry to bother you, but I have a doubt about a song called "Happy Birthday", this song was sang with Curtis Knight:

    https://www.discogs.com/Jimi-Hendrix...elease/4964471

    And it was used the sample for Beastie Boys "Jimmy James" song.

    My questions is... I can't find it anywhere in CD format, I have the The Authentic PPX Studio Recordings, and at the Disc 2 - Flashing, "happy birthday" is there, but is not the version that you can hear in the sample, or at the link sent it before at discogs.

    If it will be very helpful if someone knows at with boot or official release (that I doubt this), could be find it?

    Thank you in advance!
    Pablo.
