Jimi Hendrix: Stepping Stone/Izabella

"Stepping Stone" b/w "Izabella"
Hendrix Band of Gypsys

Now here's a hot little item that's only a few months old, released before the Capitol album and a dozen times as good. Hendrix and the guys rocket through "Stepping Stone" with its outrageous lyrics ("You're all woman – at least you taste like you are") and ever-increasing tempo, culminating in a frenzied guitar solo which ends with the engineer breaking in and saying "You made it!" Indeed. "Izabella" ain't much, though.
