  • This song finds Jimi backing Albert & Arthur Allen, a pair of vocalists known as The Ghetto Fighters, whom he had befriended in Harlem long before he achieved fame with the Experience. The Ghetto Fighters originally recorded the master at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama before taking it to Hendrix, who laid down his guitar part during the summer of 1970 at Electric Lady Studios. Previously unreleased, the track finally got to be heard when it was included on Jimi's 2013 posthumous album People, Hell & Angels.

    The Ghetto Fighters can also be heard providing backing vocals on the Experience Hendrix track, "Dolly Dagger."
