Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, has announced a vinyl release created especially for Record Store Day’s Black Friday 2016, celebrated this year at the nation’s independent record stores on Friday, November 25, 2016.
Jimi Hendrix – Morning Symphony Ideas – 10″ Vinyl LP
Morning Symphony Ideas is an official ‘bootleg’ which places its focus on Jimi’s songwriting and his unique approach toward developing new material in the recording studio. This collection presents Jimi’s funk forays with Billy Cox and Buddy Miles, three shining examples of Jimi’s work in progress from late 1969. “Jungle” was recorded at the Record Plant on November 14, 1969. Side Two features a September 1969 session with Hendrix again joined by Miles yielding a vigorous then-new interpretation of “Room Full Of Mirrors,” a song Hendrix had attempted previously going as far back as August 1968 sessions at Electric Ladyland. During the same December 1969 Record Plant session which produced “Message To Love” and “Earth Blues,” Jimi put forward the funky groove which fans and bootleggers alike have come to know as “Strato Strut,” included as the third cut on Morning Symphony Ideas.
This compilation was produced by Janie Hendrix, Eddie Kramer, & John McDermott for Experience Hendrix, L.L.C.
