"And so this is Christmas, and what have you done?"
Time for reflection amidst (hopefully) enjoying family and friends . . . and we will all do that in our own way.
Jimi did it this way.
This was part of some long studio jamming, the first two songs here were recorded in December '69 with drummer Buddy Miles and bassist Billy Cox in the Record Plant in New York and apparently welded onto Auld Lang Syne recorded slightly later in the session.
The result was released as a 12 inch promo single in '74, then again in '79.
Doesn't add much to the Hendrix legend, but it is certainly an appropriately seasonal item at this time.
