March 7th, 1968. The Scene Club - New York City, N.Y. 1. Red House 2. Wake Up This Morning & Find Myself Dead 3. Bleeding Heart 4. Morrison's Lament 5. Tommorow Never Knows 6 Uranus Rock 7. Outside Woman Blues 8. Sunshine Of Your Love Recordings: Woke Up This Morning & Found Myself Dead - (Bootleg L.P.) Red Lightnin' 50 min. Sound quality= A PERSONNEL: Jimi Hendrix - Guitar, Vocals, Recording Jim Morrison - Vocals, Abuse, Harmonica, Mumbling Johnny Winter - Rhythm Guitar Randy Hobbs - Bass Randy Z - Drums (tracks 1 - 3) Buddy Miles - Drums (tracks 4 - 8) NOTES: Actually a supposed legitimate release (not in the U.S.), the story is that Hendrix brought along a tape deck to a jam session at a club owned by Johnny Winter's manager. Morrison shows up, and can be heard on a couple of tracks screaming obscenities, playing the harmonica and "cavorting" (drunkenly) about the stage. As a Hendrix fan as well as a Doors fan, I thouroughly enjoy this recording. Morrison's contribution to this is minimal, but fun. Nothing deeply poetic here, no deeper meaning in life, Morrison seems to be enjoying shocking the crowd (who knows if he actually succeeds?)by screaming "f*** her in the a**." Perhaps he was trying a not too subtle pick-up line....One can never be sure with Jim..... Bottom Line - If you don't like Hendrix at all, stay away from this one! I love Hendrix, plus, it is nice to hear him playing without any pressure or effect pedals..... For the die-hard completist, a must have..... If you like Hendrix, a nice addition. Sometimes mislabled as 3/18/68
