Jayne Mansfield feat. Jimi Hendrix Suey/I Need You Every Day 45rpm 7" Vinyl
Historic 45rpm 7" Vinyl Single!
Before Jimi Hendrix became an international phenomenon, he struggled to earn a
living as an itinerant sideman for many rhythm & blues acts. Hendrix can be
heard on recordings by Little Richard, the Isley Brothers, Don Covay and many
others. This single presents one of his most unusual sessions as an unheralded
sideman while the other was only recently discovered and never before released.
Hendrix recorded both tracks in 1966 during separate sessions as a session
musician for Ed Chalpin & PPX Enterprises, Inc. “Suey” was originally the flip
side of “As The Clouds Drift By,” a single by the voluptuous B-movie actress
Jayne Mansfield. Licensed to several European labels just weeks after Mansfield
died in an automobile accident on June 29, 1967, Mansfield US recording rights
were held by a different label so this recording has never before been issued in
Ricky Mason was a young vocalist championed by Chalpin, and “I Need You Every
Day” is a pleasant surprise. This previously unreleased, uptempo shouter also
features Hendrix on guitar.
