<1> This is what one could call a jam session album. During Jimi's career he would jam with just about anybody. Frequently Jimi would also take those musicians into the studio with him, either just for fun or to try out his musical ideas. Jack Adams (engineer at the Record Plant in 1969): 'They would come in and jam all night. One song would blend right into the next one, but later on he'd remember every single one.'
<2> All song titles (except 'Message From Nine To The Universe') were made up in 1979/80. Jimi didn't give any of the jams a name while recording them.
<3> This release came out in Brazil in late 1979 with a different cover and a different song order as: Message From Nine To The Universe (on WEA 38.023).
