Hello everybody! A premature return from my summer hiatus. I spent some time this August revisiting The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s Electric Ladyland. Hendrix’s US fans had to wait until the 1968 release of the album to get hold of a copy of this song, but in the UK, ‘Burning of the Midnight Lamp’ had been released in August 1967 as the group’s fourth single. The song featured backing vocals by R&B group Sweet Inspirations, but YouTube does not house a copy of the final recording. An alternate version will suffice. Imperious stuff.
