Opening this disc, is a blues jam between Jimi and Johnny Winter called The Things I Used To Do. Some great blistering guitar work, from both Jimi and Johnny. A whole album from these two would be a very interesting thing indeed. Following that is yet another visit to the Three Little Bears, this time it's the incomplete version. A different mix of Gypsy Eyes, from the album Electric Ladyland is next. After that, it's Band Of Gypsy tracks featuring Jimi on guitar, Buddy Miles on drums, and Billy Cox on bass. Who Knows, and Message To Love are the band rehearsing and preparing for their 4 shows at the Fillmore East, on December 31st/69 & January 1/70. Izabella features the same lineup, this time at work in the studio. -Original
