Recording

January 11th, 1967

Looking to get something new to market following their debut "Hey Joe," Chas Chandler brought The Experience to DeLane Lea Studios in London to commence work on their next songs. This session included the basic track for "Purple Haze," which was recorded in merely four hours. Additional recordings including "The Wind Cries Mary," "51st Anniversary," "The Wind Cries Mary" and "Burning Of The Midnight Lamp" were also completed.
