    notes

    Session began with 5 takes of rehearsals with no attempt to record. The first take was marked "good" by Assistant Engineer Phil Brown. Takes 2 and 3 broke down before any real progress. Take 4 was a nice solid take but Jimi insisted to preform another 5th take, which ultimately produced the master. Chandler had a problem with a slowdown the EXP took at the ending of the song and this led to 4 attempts to edit this section out. After this basic track had been realized, Jimi recorded more overdubs. After more overdubs were completed, mixes were prepared for both Tax Free and All Along the Watchtower. This mix of Tax Free was used on the 1997 compilation South Saturn Delta.

    Friday 26 January 1968, Olympic Sound Studios, London. JHE
    Producer: Chas Chandler
    Engineers: Eddie Kramer, Phil Brown

    Tax Free (6 rehearsals) - unreleased
    Tax Free (takes 1-4) - unreleased
    Tax Free (take 5 - master, 5 edit sections, overdubs & mixing) - unreleased
    All Along The Watchtower (mixing) - (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 16) **

    Mitch: “We also did 'Tax Free', which is probably the version that came out on one of those posthumous albums. That cropped up live several times over the years, and I hope Hansson and Carlsson have got some royalties for it. Unlikely, but who knows?”

    Chas: “The song had stuck in Hendrix's mind, and he wanted to complete a definitive version. We must have done that eight times, all instrumentals, but he wanted to find a vocal and a melody for it."

    ** In a radio interview Eddie Kramer said that (2) was the last mix he prepared in England. The track was then taken to America and transferred from 4 to 12 track and subsequent overdubs added at the Record Plant including a new bass part by Jimi.
