MORNING SYMPHONY IDEAS REVEALS THE EARLIEST STAGES OF JIMI'S SONGWRITING TECHNIQUE FROM THAT PERIOD. WITH A NOD TO THE GUITAR STYLING OF CURTIS MAYFIELD, "JUNGLE" GATHERS TOGETHER STRANDS OF "EZY RYDER" AND VILLANOVA JUNCTION," THE HAUNTING THEME HE HAD SUCCESSFULLY PREMIERED AT WOODSTOCK IN AUGUST 1969. ON THE TRACK, JIMI IS HEAD SINGING THE MELODY OF "FREEDOM," DESCRIBING TO MILES YET ANOTHER NEW SONG HE WISHED TO EXPLORE.
 
THE IDEA OF "ROOM FULL OF MIRRORS" DATES BACK TO THE 1968 RECORDING SESSIONS FOR ELECTRIC LADYLAND. ON THIS 1969 RECORDING, JIMI BEGINS ANEW, MODIFYING THE SONG'S TEMPO AND EVEN THROWING IN A SHORT BURST OF "MESSAGE TO LOVE" FOR GOOD MEASURE.
 
ON "STRATO STRUT," JIMI PAYS HOMAGE TO JIMMY NOLEN OF JAMES BROWN'S BAND, AN ICONIC R&B GUITAR MASTER. KEENLY AWARE OF THE DEMO'S PROMISE, JIMI INSTRUCTS ENGINEER BOB COTTO TO "SAVE THAT" AT THE SONG'S CONCLUSION.
