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.”

I lost some hair, but I might have lost the lot if they hadn’t been guarding me!”
