Jimi Hendrix: Summer of Love

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by MikeyFingers, Oct 31, 2005.

  1. I heard of this from a friend of mine. According to him (and this isn't the most reliable source), Hendrix went into the studio ripped on acid and just started recording a ton of random stuff on guitar. The thing that really got me interested was that he says Side B is all him playing bass. Now, I never heard of this. If it is true, can someone confirm it and maybe show me somewhere online where it can be purchased?

    First I've heard of it, and although Hendrix did spend a lot of time in the studio, both straight and stoned, there are lots of people out there always trying to get one more buck out of him. :scowl:

    He did play bass on some material and it's possible that someone got some of the thousands of hours of tapes that he did and is trying to put out some more Hendrix material of questionable value to his fans. :scowl:

    By the way, is Summer of Love supposed to be the name of the CD?
  3. I googled it and found some stuff. Yes, it's called "The Summer of Love Sessions", but I can't find any website that are actually selling it.
