    Sunday 5 January 1969
    London, Polydor Studios.
    18:00 – 09:00, 15 hours!
    Recording for Eire Apparent’s ‘Sunrise’ LP and single ‘A’ side
    Jimi – guitar, Ernie Graham - vocal, guitar, David ‘Tiger’ Taylor – guitar, Eric Stewart - bass, David Lutton - drums
    Arranged [?] by Vic Briggs
    Producer: Jimi Hendrix
    Engineer: Carlos Olms
    Olms was the engineer on Polydor’s Jimi Hendrix Isle Of Wight (1972) release.

    Song:

    Rock And Roll Band (David ‘Tiger’ Taylor & Ernie Graham)

    Carlos Olms: "Eire Apparent had come in around six p.m.. We messed around trying to get the right sound until ten or eleven before Jimi arrived in his very colorful dress. He sat very quietly in a corner. After he heard our work, he started to convert everything to his taste. He started with the drums, setting up each microphone to get the right sound, then the right equalization. The boys had a hard time trying to please him with their sound, but I was impressed with his way of working.
    After the microphones and sound adjustments had been made, the group attempted to record the song's basic track. We did about five or six complete versions, but Jimi always found something which he felt was not correct and we would do it again. It was three a.m. before he started to put his [guitar] parts down on tape. He had to play the middle eight part and the ending.
    He asked me for a very insensitive microphone, because, he said, 'I will play quite loud.' We turned the lights so low in the studio that I could just see the shadow of his guitar and amplifiers. Every time he played his part, we thought it was fantastic. Only Jimi didn't think so. He always raised his hand and said, 'Again.' He was still playing his part at five a.m., but was not satisfied At the end, he agreed [to stop] only because it was so late. We started mixing and stayed until nine a.m. That was the longest session I had ever been involved with at Polydor. Other employees came into the studio that morning and were surprised to see that we still there."

    Jimi is based in London for a couple of months, while he does a brief tour of North West Europe which will, it is planned, provide the content for a ‘Farewell Experience’ film, a bit like the ‘Farewell Cream’ but not just limited to their Albert Hall concerts, as Cream’s was. Gold & Goldstein’s ‘FarOut Productions’ have been hired to film it (bad mistake).
    Mitch & Noel have been back home in the UK since 2nd December 1968.
