    New version of 3RD STONE in new multi tracks

    3rd STONE FROM THE SUN (intro) (early vocal overdub.)
    Jimi and Chas appear to think they are so far ahead from the rest that they might as well be from another planet

    JH : I don’t know, man. Do you think it’d be-ah, wise to come down to Earth and all, and
    mess with these people. With these little, funny tape recorders?
    CC: As long as the tape machine goes fast enough, it should sound all right
    JH : Yeah, well, ken* how smart some people think they are?
    CC: Find all the hippies playin’ their records at twice the speed
    JH : [Vocal sound effect:] 'Brrooh' [first missile from Earth forces explodes?]. Pilot to co-pilot1, uh-can you read me?
    There’s something down below. Can you check it’s down below?
    CC: Looks like it’s coming in all right
    JH : War? Speak war [The forces of Earth have attacked their spaceship, therefore they
    will retaliate?]. . .

    [Slowed down speech, sound effect imitating a blast:] ‘Tsshjjoohhnnh’

    [Slowed down speech:]
    CC: Okay, do it again George1
    JH: [Coughs]
    GC: Piss

    *Jimi using North East of England/Scottish dialect word ‘Ken’ in place of ‘Know’!
    1Eric Burdon, a close follower of Jimi, in 1969, apparently used this ‘concept’ as a title for his 1969 song ‘Sky
    Pilot’
    2George Chkiantz, engineer at Olympic Studios

    JH: Hmm, shooh, Heh-ha-ha, hmm-hmmm, [slowed down vocal and electronic effects]: Shoohh, shoohh, whoooh. . . [etc.]

    [Slowed down speech:]
    JH : Something just doesn’t seem right with these-uh, people. Over, heh

    [Slowed down speech:]
    JH : Oh, yeah?
    CC: Trying to suppress a yawn, ha-ha
    JH : Uh, I think we’re gonna have to, kind o’, check this out.
    CC: Ha-ha
    JH : Like, there’s a lot o’ acid heads around here
    CC: Ha-ha
    JH : Ha-ha
    CC: Heh-heh
    JH : Heh-heh.
    CC: Heh-heh.
    JH : Just tryin’ to be a acid drop to make people fly
    CC: Heh-heh
    JH : [Making whooshing noises vocally and electronically]. . . Mmm. Let’s see now. How
    about this. I’m tryin’ to time this right, heh-heh

    EK: Yeah [not slowed down]

    [Slowed down speech:]
    JH : [Loud breathing] Furry

    Unfortunately this track's multis are a little out of synch. 'funkydrummer' though has apparently managed to get it in synch. We fans, with less time? ability? and commitment? await his efforts, I am sure, with baited breath.

    I don't think Chas' voice appeared on the final cut of Third Stone. Strange.

    ^
    Chas does appear on the final cut. He is the voice of the 'scout ship' Jimi is the 'star fleet' commander, who decides to destroy planet Earth. He is also on one of the early 'chat' takes released on the purple box. So, no, not strange at all.

    Here's a FLAC8 of the most complete 'fan made' version of '3rd Stone' I'v heard - not official and not released of course so I hope it's cool to post. Let me know if it's not ok to post and that's cool too.
