This was recorded after Jimi Hendrix finished the long, slow blues of "Voodoo Chile
," a 15-minute jam that appears earlier on the Electric Ladyland
album. An ABC film crew came into the studio to do a piece on The Experience and told them to "make like you're playing, boys." Jimi said, "Okay, let's do this in E." The TV footage was lost, but their impromptu jam gave them the song "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)."
