Record Store Day

TO COMMEMORATE RECORD STORE DAY'S VINYL CENTRIC "BACK TO BLACK FRIDAY" EVENT, EXPERIENCE HENDRIX, L.L.C. IN CONJUNCTION WITH SONY MUSIC'S LEGACY RECORDINGS, HAS RELEASED MORNING SYMPHONY IDEAS, A SET OF RARE JIMIHENDRIX STUDIO RECORDINGS UNDER THE DAGGER RECORDS IMPRINT. THIS LIMITED EDITION 10" TRANSLUCENT YELLOW VINYL  E.P. CONSISTS OF THREE TRACKS RECORDED BETWEEN SEPTEMBER AND DECEMBER OF 1969, AT A TIME WHEN HENDRIX WAS STARTING TO PUT TOGETHER HIS BAND OF GYPSYS WITH BASSIST BILLY COX (WHO APPEARS ON THE TRACK "STRATO STRUT") AND DRUMMER BUDDY MILES (WHO APPEARS ON ALL TRACKS).
BY 1969, INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS AND THE DIZZYING SCHEDULE OF TOURING WRECKED HAVOC WITH JIMI'S DESIRE TO CREATE NEW MUSIC. HOWEVER, WITH FELLOW MUSICIANS COX AND MILES, WHO ALSO CAME UP IN THE SAME R&B "CHITLIN' CIRCUIT," HE BEGAN WRITING MUSIC THAT LEANED MORE TOWARDS THE FUNKY END OF THE SPECTRUM THAN HIS PREVIOUS WORK WITH THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE. MORNING SYMPHONY IDEAS OFFERS A GLIMPSE INTO JIMI HENDRIX'S RIGOROUS SONGWRITING PROCESS.
THE MORNING SYMPHONY IDEAS VINYL RELEASE IS THE NEXT VINYL DAGGER RELEASE FOR RECORD STORE DAY, FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF HEAR MY MUSIC, BURNING DESIRE AND LIVE AT CLARK UNIVERSITY.
DAGGER RECORDS WAS STARTED BY EXPERIENCE HENDRIX IN 1998 AS AN OFFICIAL "˜BOOTLEG' LABEL WHOSE RELEASES WOULD PROVIDE HENDRIX FANS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD WITH ADDITIONAL LIVE PERFORMANCES, HOME DEMOS AND STUDIO RECORDINGS NOT ISSUED ON COMMERCIAL ALBUMS.
