Hendrix makes a return visit back to hometown of Seattle, Washington where he is met at the airport by a large gathering of friends and family. Over the next couple of days Jimi spends considerable time with members of his family.
Trying to lay claim to a definitive master of “Lover Man,” Hendrix returned to Electric Lady to try and revitalize the recordings, unfortunately, with little success on this evening. Although a rough mix would be prepared, it too would be quickly shelved.
Hendrix and crew travel from the Isle of Wight to Stockholm, Sweden where Klas Burling of Swedish radio interviews him. Olle Jonsson of Aftonbladet also interviews Hendrix for a September 1 article. That night, The Experience perform at Stora Scenen in Tivoli Gardens, Stockholm.
Back at the Record Plant several spirited recordings were put to tape this evening, including six takes of Buddy Miles signature track, “Them Changes” plus a dozen meandering takes of “Burning Desire.” Hendrix was troubled by the tone of his guitar, resulting in few memorable highlights from the night’s session.
