The second set of studio sessions took place at Studio 78 in Los Angeles, with Jimi already a master of multi-tracking. "I'm Boring", "The Fool" (the overdub of a rhythm guitar) and "Ride Of The King" from the May sessions made it on to the final album as "You Can't Use My Name". The July sessions featured a lead bass on a 12 string Hagstrom and Jimi playing a custom twelfth-string on the lower frets. In the studio, with Jeremiah Knight on drums and Ed Chalpin (who used the same amp on all of Jimi's bass parts) playing lead bass, the songs were overdubbed with Jimi and the rhythm guitar in the studio. "Birthday" (windup). "Do Re Mi" (drum overdub with Jimi playing bass) "Hush Now" and "You Can't Use My Name" (both Jimi and the rhythm) are overdubs with Ed Chalpin on bass (he used his Hofner bass), playing a harder-edged rock bass sound. "Hush Now" Free Bonus Track, (Jimi playing bass and the rhythm). TheJerry Knight material ("Ride" and "Birthday"), now retitled "Birthday Song" is the only studio material of his that isnt on> Axis: Bold as Love.
"Ride" and "Birthday" were released as singles and are much easier to find, but "Birthday" is about 3:00 faster than "Ride". Its also different! The line up is Jimi Kimball, Curtis Gary, Ed Chalpin, Jerry Knight, James Chudacoff and the horn section from the Experience. The Domelo Experience, their first line up in 1967. The track is over 10 minutes and with Jimmy Booker on organ and Jerry Knight on drums. Jimi plays mostly twelve string basses, but on the over-dub that is "Birthday," Jimi plays an old twelve string Hagstrom. Again, Jimi plays fuzz boxes and uses the fuzz for picking and sometimes he does a bit of double picking to play chords.
