I bought this disc (the original seeder says) back when A & B Sound still existed. They happened to carry a few select bootlegs on occasion. I remember thinking, "Wow, this is going to be amazing," and payed something like $19.99 for it. This recording has been available on many bootleg LP's for many years. Aside from the Red Lightning releases, most of the LP's only had a few songs. There was a picture disc version as well, but as cool as they are, picture discs aren't the same sound quality as black vinyl. This is the most complete recording available, and the quality is pretty good!

The harmonica player is listed as Jim Morrison, but even though the harpist isn't that good, I think Morrison was considerably worse at harmonica, so it may not be him. Jim Morrison was evidently just at the club and is quite drunk, coming onto the stage during the track called "Morrison's Lament" and staying basically for the rest of the recording. He starts "singing" into a recording mic, and Hendrix instructs him to use a different mic. Apparently Janis Joplin was in the crowd this night too, and Morrison spilled a drink on her lap, getting a slap in the face in return. There is some confusion as to who the drummer really was, and also a bit of debate as to whether Johnny Winter was actually there. Johnny Winter's manager at the time, Steve Paul, owned the club and in my opinion, no one else sounded quite like Johnny at the time. However Johnny Winter claims he wasn't on the stage that night and never performed with Jim Morrison, but he was also a major drug addict at the time, maybe he forgot? It does sound like Buddy Miles so I wouldn't doubt that it's him, possibly for the entire recording and not just half like the liner notes claim.

So this is far from a supergroup. More of a jam session that got ruined by one drunken Jim Morrison. But it is very interesting to listen to, and there's some great moments. Hendrix was supposedly the one operating the recording gear, how this got to the hands of a bootleg company, who knows.

The album documents Hendrix's jam session (which he recorded himself on his portable reel to reel machine that he had brought with him) at The Scene club, 301 West 46th Street, New York City in March 1968, with guest vocals from Jim Morrison (that consist almost entirely of drunkenly shouted obscenities). Other musicians on the recordings are unknown, though it is possible that the bassist is Randy Hobbs and the drummer is Randy Zehringer, members of The Scene's house band at the time. It has been rumored that Noel Redding and Johnny Winter also appear. In the case of Redding, this is definitely untrue.[citation needed] Winter himself has denied that he took part in the jam, saying he never met Jim Morrison, although at times during the recording a second lead guitar (at a lower volume than Hendrix's) can be heard playing in an electric blues style. The LP release is interesting for its strange depiction of Hendrix on the cover (an illustration by artist George Snow).

The material on Woke Up This Morning and Found Myself Dead was first released on a bootleg LP entitled Sky High [1], and at various times in the past and present under different names including High, Live 'N Dirty, Sunshine of Your Love, Live at the Scene Club, Red House, New York Sessions, Tomorrow Never Knows, Bleeding Heart, and many more, though all are semi-official releases. This is probably the most bootleged material from Jimi Hendrix appearing on hundreds of releases (records, cassettes, CD's etc.) worldwide. Experience Hendrix now owns the original reel to reel tape, and has it safely put away in the vaults

interesting fact:
"I never even met Jim Morrison! There's a whole album of Jimi and Jim and I'm supposedly on the album but I don't think I am `cause I never met Jim Morrison in my life! I'm sure I never, never played with Jim Morrison at all! I don't know how that [rumour] got started." (Johnny Winter)

As to whether or not Johnny Winter plays on this recording, I asked Johnny that specific question in an interview I did with him in February 2009. His reply was that not only did he NOT play on this, he's never even met Jim Morrison. A close listen will show that while there is clearly a drunk Jim Morrison, there does not appear to be any other guitar but Jimi's.

If you're an artist (or a legal representative of an artist or its estate) and you don't want your ROIOs shared on this blog for FREE among your fans, you may opt out any time by sending e-mail to the site admin. We will then put you in our list of not allowed artists. This will halt all sharing of your ROIOs in this blog within minutes. BTW, the ROIOs exist, you can't make them vanish. So, why not let your fans get them for free from one another instead of having to purchase them from commercial bootleggers on auction sites?
