Notes:
First released anywhere in the world in the U.K. on Polydor 56139 on December 16th, 1966, coupling "Hey Joe" and "Stone Free" and crediting "The Jimi Hendrix Experience"; some editions credit Jimi Hendrix.
"Hey Joe" recorded at De Lane Lea Studios, London, Sun. 23rd Oct. 1966 ·
"Stone Free" recorded at De Lane Lea Studios, London, Wed. 2nd Nov. 1966.
Entered U.K. Charts on Thu. 29 Dec 1966, achieving # 6 position on the 4th of Jan. and spending 11 consecutive weeks on chart.

A version of "Hey Joe" was firt putt on single in 1965 by the Californian rock band The Leaves as Hey Joe, Where You Gonna Go / Be With You, without writing credits, to be on later releases credited to Chet Powers.
Already in 1962, William Moses Roberts Jr. , artistname Billy Roberts copyrighted the song stating he had written the song. But because it draws on so many well-established blues song conventions, the song seems considerably older.
