The version on Hendrix's posthumous album, People, Hell & Angels
, was drawn from Jimi's first ever recording session with his old army pal, Billy Cox, and drummer Buddy Miles. He would later record the groundbreaking album Band Of Gypsys
with the powerhouse rhythm duo. Co-producer John McDermott commented to Digital Spy
: "Billy and Buddy understood how to set the tempo. If you listen to this recording, they play it the same way as they did on the Live At The Fillmore East
album. They knew intuitively that the song should have a great, menacing groove; it shouldn't be old-school, old-tempo, four-bar stuff. They wanted it to have a totally different feel, and that's what makes it exciting."
