    Jimi & Mitch:
    ‘Gypsy Blood’ (Valleys Of Neptune*, 10 takes) unreleased

    JHE:
    ‘Gypsy Blood’ (Valleys Of Neptune*, take 11) unreleased

    *JMcD says that this ‘Gypsy Blood’ was actually many demo’s of Jimi and Rocky trying Valley’s Of Neptune. Gypsy Blood an earlier separate piece seems to have morphed into an early working title for Valleys.

    JHE:
    Noel’s Tune (take 1)

    BILLBOARD (page 7) [Full page Warner Bros. ad.] In '66. we defied The Rolling Stones. We bucked The Beatles. We dared Dylan. And we came out smelling like a million. Cash. We did it with The San Sebastian Strings, a deliberately aggressive stride into quote good music unquote.
    Now. in '69. Warners defies Jimi Hendrix. We take on Led Zeppelin. We stir against Cream
    Hell, we may even challenge The San Sebastian Strings.
    Think us too ambitious? Before you ante up your $8950.36. friend, a few words of warning: KJR. WDRC. WNEW. WGN. KOL. KSFO. WCAO. KMPC. WHK. KGIL. WSAI. WKDA WOKY KUF. All are helping sell the first Neon Philharmonic single, MORNING GIRL
    It's from the new Warners album, "The Moth Confesses." which cost The Neon Phil $8950.36 to produce. That's our ante.
    For once, beat your kids to something groovy.
