DID YOU KNOW THAT VOODOO CHILE WAS NOT SUPPOSED
TO BE INCLUDED ON "ELECTRIC LADYLAND"? HERE'S HOW
IT HAPPENED:
JIMI HEARD CREAM'S LIVE VERSION OF "SPOONFUL"
WHEN IT WAS RELEASED WITH "WHEELS OF FIRE" IN
JULY OF '68.SINCE HE COULDN'T COMPETE WITH A LIVE
RECORDING OF HIS OWN , HE DID WHAT ANY RIPOFF
ARTIST WOULD DO. HE TOOK AN IN-THE-STUDIO JAM
FROM EARLY '68 WITH STEVE WINWOOD ON ORGAN AND
JACK CASADY ON BASS (NOEL HAD HAD ENOUGH BY THIS
TIME) , AND TRIED TO PASS IT OFF AS LIVE "CREAM
II".ONLY PROBLEM WAS , THE SLOW BLUES FORMAT
DEPLOYED HERE ECHOED HIS "RED HOUSE" RIPOFF OF
ERIC'S "HAVE YOU HEARD".MITCH MITCHELL WAS
CLEARLY THE STAR OF THIS SHOW.
THESE ARE THE FACTS - ANY OTHER VERSION IS
NONSENSE.
