Recording

Revisiting the December 19 recording of "Message To Love," during an evening session back at the Record Plant, the group completed the final overdubs for this track while Hendrix added a new lead guitar part to the master. The group also revisited "Earth Blues" (Take 11) from the same December 19 session - adding a series of overdubs and a new lead guitar track.

In revisiting take three of "I'm A Man" (January 7), Hendrix retitled the track "Sky Blues Today" while adding new guitar overdubs to the recording. Hendrix also revisited the December 18 recording of "Ezy Ryder." Rough mixes for each of the session's recordings were also completed, which would later be revisited at Electric Lady Studios later that summer.

January 07th, 1970

The February 7 edition of Rolling Stone took a candid look at the year that was... 1969. And in top marks to Jimi Hendrix, RS said, "Jimi Hendrix had a big year, a pretty neat trick for a musician who made no music. He was busted for dope and got off, his Experience broke up with Hendrix starting a "serious" new experimental group, he quite gigging except for a few festivals, and there were no new records. To Jimi Hendrix, the No News Is Big News Award."

In a session at the Record Plant, overseen by engineer Bob Hughes and second engineer Dave Ragno, Hendrix crafted a rough sketch of "Send My Love To Linda" which featured Miles on drums and Cox on bass. As the track progressed it extended into a lively extended jam. Additionally, twelve takes of "Paper Airplanes" (AKA "Power Of Soul") and five takes of "Burning Desire" were also put to tape.
