Numbered limited edition vinyl 10-inch record featuring a Hendrix medley of holiday classics!

Extremely limited 10-inch pressing of this single from the rock guitarist containing holiday classics. Side A includes 'Little Drummer Boy/Silent Night/Auld Lang Syne' and 'Three Little Bears'. Side B features 'Little Drummer Boy/Silent Night/Auld Lang Syne' (Extended Version).

As Christmas 1969 beckoned, Jimi Hendrix, bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles engaged in extensive rehearsals for their highly anticipated appearances at the Fillmore East in New York. Keenly aware of the special significance his forthcoming concerts represented, Jimi wanted to prepare something extraordinary for his audience. To mark the occasion in his own inimitable fashion, Jimi readied this special medley of holiday favorites to celebrate both Christmas and the dawning of a new decade. 

Music On Vinyl now presents this special 10-inch record, for a new generation to enjoy. It by no means should be considered a polished studio recording; nay, it's just Jimi simply having fun in the company of close friends. The photo of Jimi posing as Santa Claus on the back cover was originally published as the cover of the U.K. music newspaper Record Mirror to publicize the December 1967 release of Axis: Bold As Love, the group's second album. This is an alternative photograph from that session. As an added bonus with this record, included is a bonus track — Jimi's playful "Three Little Bears." This track was recorded with the Experience in May 1968 during sessions for Electric Ladyland. Bypassed for that album, "Three Little Bears" was originally issued as part of the 1972 posthumous compilation War Heroes. It had been unavailable in the U.S. for nearly 25 years.
