Refer to page 177(on Electric Gypsy) for the text of the 'transmission'. This transmission sparked off a Donald Duck story titled 'Officer For A Day' by script writer Carl Barks in late 1968 (first published in the Donald Duck comic issue 126, 07/69, in the USA). In the story Donald is playing a substitute policeman and is being faced with, among other problems, visitors from a flying saucer who believe chickens are the only inhabitants of the Earth worth talking to . . .

NOTE: George Chkiantz on the backward guitar parts: The original idea was to do a loop, but that gave a problem . . . we tried looping it and then we couldn't get it to loop . . . in the end Jimi got so impatient doing this, he said "look, it's quite easy, we're just gonna play" and played it in.' <2> It is possible that Jimi did some of the backward drums.
