    The opening lines of "it's too bad" already appeared in "1983" in almost the same phrasing, just some different words. The song structure and blues melody is a bit reminiscent of Hear My Train and I reckon it later morphed into Midnight Lightning.

    PS it is wikipedia, and I don't know who wrote or compiled this entry, but he/she put a lot of effort in it with all the references (including the RFOM article etc). Because the song is so damning to Leon, I surmise it was EH. You can edit it if you like :-) That is wikipedia (and wait how long it takes to be edited back).

    Clearly as members you can have what you want here at CTT, within reason of course J
    Difficult to understand why the so called Knowledge threads are being so devalued in such a manner. We have plenty of platforms for debate so why introduce it here?
    I am having difficulty collating Wiki with knowledge in the first instance and following that a whole debate on what has been posted.
    I’ll refrain from taking an interest, as in using this source for a “knowledge” base search, and simply apply my time on moderating it generally as I do with the rest of the site.
    Another great idea pissed on by the members!

    Tuesday 11 February 1969
    Record Plant, New York City. - No gig
    Buddy Miles Express
    Jimi is in his home town, New York City, where he will produce four tracks for the Buddy Miles Express LP ‘Electric Church’ (Miss Lady, ’69 Freedom Special, Destructive Love and My Chant) at Mercury Sound Studios.
    Surely unlikely that this was an official Mercury session?
    Recording 24:00 until 04:00
    Rough mix 04:00 until 05:00
    Producer: Jimi Hendrix
    Engineer: Tony Bongiovi
    2nd engineer: Dave Ragno

    Buddy Miles Express:

    “I Can See” (aka Destructive Love)* (Buddy Miles) - unreleased

    *It’s possible that Jimi may have overdubbed bass on this

    Buddy gtr, Duane Hitchings org, Jimi bs:

    Jam #1, unreleased.
    JMcD: [Long, shambling, uneventul.]

    JMcD then implies another jam followed with Jimi back on guitar, Buddy back on his drums and, we are left to assume, Rich was back on his bass. He doesn’t comment further on this implied jam, or personnel, going straight on to the next tracks:

    Jimi gtr, Duane Hitchings org, Billy Rich bs? Buddy dms:

    Jam #2? Jimi – guitar, Duane Hitchings – organ, Buddy – drums:

    World Traveller
    It’s Too Bad - (1, 2, 3)

    Jimi – guitar, Jim McCarty – guitar, Duane Hitchings – organ, Billy Rich – bass, Buddy – drums:

    Untitled instrumental jam (JS17)


    Billy Rich: "Jimi just seemed to be looking for different things to do. He and Buddy had grown pretty close. At that time, Buddy was trying to get Jimi to do anything he possibly could with him. We did do a bunch of recording. We'd play all night, putting some little things down on tape and having a ball. Jimi never asked me to join the Experience, but he hinted that he wanted to get together with me at some point. It wouldn't have been with the Experience, because they were a solid thing. He was to also do something else."

    Jim McCarty: Jimi was tired of having to do 'Purple Haze' on the road every night. He wanted to make the transition from psychedelia to his own style of funk rock. He was talking to people like Miles Davis and Buddy Miles about doing different projects, but his drug use was wearing him down."

    Wednesday 12 February 1969 – no gig
    London, Brook St. flat
    Jimi flew from his home town, New York City back to London, about 7 hours.
    Jimi is based back in London again for a month, while he organises the recording of a couple of gigs at the Albert Hall which will, it is planned, along with the previous European gigs 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.
    Noel is having a short break in Majorca.
