In the interview, Hendrix makes references to the hectic recording schedule of the past, saying, “I felt we were becoming the American version of Dave Dee – nothing wrong with that, but its just not our scene. We decided we had to end that scene and get into our own thing. I was tired after of the attitude of fans they’ve bought you a house and a car and now expect you to work the way they want you to for the rest of your life. Buy we couldn’t just say, screw them, because they have their rights, too, so we decided the best way was to just cool the recording scene until we were ready with something that we wanted everyone to hear. I want people to hear us, what we’re doin’ now and try to appreciate what we’re at.”
