In the afternoon, The Experience head to Hilversum to conduct rehearsals for their forthcoming appearance on Fanclub, which is scheduled to air live on national television. During the rehearsals, it is suggested that Hendrix mime the live performance because they are playing so loud that it knocked plaster off the ceiling in the studio below their rehearsal space. Despite considerable argument from Hendrix, the final live performance on Fanclub at 7 p.m. is in fact mimed while its broadcast throughout The Netherlands. As Fanclub was broadcast live, the performance was not preserved on film.

April 17th, 1967

The Jimi Hendrix Experience perform two songs, "Manic Depression" and "Purple Haze" for the BBC Two program Late Night Line-Up. The show airs on May 17th as part of their show "Psychedelic Happening," which also featured an interview with the band.

Unfortunately, the original tapes from the program were never preserved and all that remains is a copy tape from a later re-broadcast of the program that omitted "Purple Haze." This source tape was used in 1998 for the inclusion of "Manic Depression" on the acclaimed compilation The Jimi Hendrix Experience: BBC Sessions.
