The group focused their initial attention to recording "Highway Chile," with the 8th and final take being flagged as the master. Work then began on "Waterfall" (as originally marked on the tape box). Studio engineer Eddie Kramer later prepared a four-to-four mix of the 4th take during which time the song was retitled as "May This Be Love."
Hendrix then focused his attention on "Title #3" and later "Title #4" which eventually became "Are You Experienced?" Despite the the complexities of these recordings, the full song "Are You Experienced?" was completed start-to-finish in this one session.
Before the session came to a close, final mixes were prepared for "May This Be Love," "Are You Experienced?" and "I Don't Live Today."
The stunning initial take of "Title #4" ["Are You Experienced?"] was included on the 2010 Box Set West Coast Seattle Boy as was one of the outtakes of "May This Be Love."
