After a day full of recording at DeLane Lea Studios, The Jimi Hendrix Experience performed two shows at the venerable Bag O’Nails. Hendrix continued to make waves in the local music scene, and whenever possible a large group of fellow musicians would attend The Experience’s shows.

On this date it has been reported that The Beatles’ Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were in attendance, as was The Who’s Pete Townshend and John Entwistle, The Rolling Stones’ Bill Wayman, The Cream’s Eric Clapton, Lulu, The Animal’s Eric Burdon, Georgie Fame, Geno Washington, Denny Lane, and Donovan. This evening also marks the first time that Jimi Hendrix meets guitar effects wizard Roger Mayer, who would later create several effects pedals for the guitarist.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience appear at Radio London’s booth at the International Racing Car show held at the Olympia in London. Their mimed performance is reportedly filmed for Radio London but it never airs. Hendrix later laments about the miming experience in a January 28th interview published in New Musical Express saying, “The one thing I really hate is miming, it’s so phony. So far the only thing I was asked to mime was a Radio London appearance and I felt guilty just standing there holding a guitar. If you want to scream and holler at a record you can do that at home, I’m strictly a live performer.”

Tape Log: Purple Haze The studio sessions on February 3rd marked The Experience’s first foray into Olympic Studios and their first time working with engineer Eddie Kramer. This initial session saw Hendrix return to the January 11th masters for “Purple Haze” to record some additional overdubs. This initial “Purple Haze” session at Olympic foreshadowed just how creative and cutting edge the team of Hendrix, Chas Chandler and Eddie Kramer would become in the months that followed. This recording session also marked one one of the first times that Hendrix recorded in the studio with Roger Mayer’s experimental Octavia effects pedal.

The Experience returned to London’s Olympic Studios to continue work on their debut album. This significant session resulted in new recordings, overdubs on some unfinished compositions and final mixes for several tracks.

The group focused their initial attention to recording “Highway Chile,” with the 8th and final take being flagged as the master. Work then began on “Waterfall” (as originally marked on the tape box). Studio engineer Eddie Kramer later prepared a four-to-four mix of the 4th take during which time the song was retitled as “May This Be Love.”

Hendrix then focused his attention on “Title #3” and later “Title #4” which eventually became “Are You Experienced?” Despite the the complexities of these recordings, the full song “Are You Experienced?” was completed start-to-finish in this one session.

Before the session came to a close, final mixes were prepared for “May This Be Love,” “Are You Experienced?” and “I Don’t Live Today.”

The stunning initial take of “Title #4” [“Are You Experienced?”] was included on the 2010 Box Set West Coast Seattle Boy as was one of the outtakes of “May This Be Love.”

Returning to London’s Olympic Studios, an additional four-track-to-four-track reduction mix was created for “Are You Experienced?”

Later the group revisited the January 11, 1967 recordings of “Third Stone From The Sun” before redirecting attention to creating both mono and stereo mixes of “Highway Chile.” The mono mix was eventually held back and included alongside a stereo mix of “The Wind Cries Mary” as the trio’s third single in the United Kingdom.

Before the session was completed, Hendrix focused once again on the work completed in December 1966 on the song, “Love Or Confusion” which resulted in a final mix being produced and later included on the debut release of Are You Experienced.

Before the session ended, the group worked on the B.B. King inspired “Here He Comes,” before putting that aside to focus on complete mixes of songs they had earmarked for the new album.”
