    Band of Gypsys 2 ....regular or mispress ?




    Capitol Records released Band of Gypsys 2 worldwide in October of 1986.

    Known as Banda de Gitanos in South America

    There are actually only 3 songs from the original Band of Gypsys (Hendrix,Miles,Cox)on the album:
    "Hear My Train" aka (Getting My Heart), "Foxy Lady" and "Stop"...side 1.

    Side 2 has :
    "Voodoo Child" (Atlanta Pop Festival) and "Stone Free" and "Ezy Rider" from Berkeley shows,with Mitch back on drums.

    Ther are (at least)2 different US pressings of this record.

    Somehow Capitol also issued side 2 as a mispressing with "Hey Joe","Hey Baby"(Land of the New Rising Sun), "Ezy Rider"and "Lover Man" on side 2 instead of "Voodoo", "Stone Free" and Ezy Rider" all from the Berkeley shows May 30,1070.

    Hard to tell the 2 pressings apart as the same side 2 labels were used on both.
    but you can clearly see 4 songs on side 2 not 3 as listed on the label.

    (I remember boxing up over 100 of these to return to Capitol Records when I worked retail at the time and I was in charge of the returns. )

    Reportedly there are 2 other mispressed versions of BOG2..but I haven't seen them yet

    peace is hard work, you have to keep after it by fighting hate and listening to Jimi Hendrix records.
