The B-side was sampled by Oh No for his album Dr No's Ethiopium and sliced and diced a wee bit (with some skill it must be said) for his ends and given the title The Pain. The original is much richer though, mellow but with a driving beat, a song of ... See full review

Thanks for taking the time to check it out and reply. Really appreciate it. Looks like we'll both have to save up for genuine copies (thanks to Niceroad77 and Combska too) - w

"...a Kinney number sleeve but LP with early WS1749 green label, and *G STEREO matrix stamped in the deadwax."

I have one of these too, and a number of similar UK Warner and Reprise LPs from this era. As you say, it looks like Pye handed over the ... See full review

Holy Sh*t! 'Say no to drugs' was never as funky as this when I was in school...

It sounds to me like a folded-down-from-stereo mono. The stereo panning becomes (to my ears) volume panning and it loses a bit of its impact. Occasionally like on track B3 the mono 'flattening' helps to make Jimi sound like he's playing in a real band, ... See full review
