The session featured two non-musical tracks called described on the tape boxes as “Wild Chat” and “Noises” which featured Hendrix and Chandler talking through a variety of science fiction inspired passages.
Returning to London’s Olympic Studios, an additional four-track-to-four-track reduction mix was created for “Are You Experienced?”
