This recording session also marked one one of the first times that Hendrix recorded in the studio with Roger Mayer's experimental Octavia effects pedal.

The Experience returned to Olympic Studios where the group completed a final mix on their new single "Purple Haze." Afterwards, the trio revisited the four-track master for "Fire" which was previously worked on at DeLane Lea Studios. In the end, the original DeLane Lea track was basically replaced with new work. "Foxey Lady" received similar treatment, this time revisiting the December 13, 1966 tapes that were conceived at CBS Studios. By the end of the night, a final mix was in hand.
