Recording

January 16th, 1970

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.

January 23rd, 1970

With Bob Hughes and Dave Ragno monitoring the control desk, Hendrix guided the band through lively renditions of "Villanova Junction Blues" including one take lasting in excess of fifteen minutes. Several extended jams were recorded on this evening including "MLK," "Slow Time Blues," and "Burning Desire."

Later joined by an unidentified harp player, Hendrix leads the session through another extended track, this time Carl Perkins' "Blue Suede Shoes." Joined by Billy Cox, Hendrix also dabbled around "Freedom" and "Highways Of Desire" the later which gradually segued into "Seven Dollars In My Pocket."

Following the blues groove already set in place, Hendrix then began to tackle "Midnight Lightning," "Freedom," "Country Blues," and "Once I Had A Woman." In 1974, an edited take of "Once I Had A Woman" featuring overdubbed harmonica parts by Buddy Lucas was prepped for 1975's compilation Midnight Lightning (Reprise Records, MS 2229). An extended rendition was also later included on 1994's Jimi Hendrix :Blues (Experience Hendrix/MCA, MCAD-11060).
