Hendrix flew into London from New York on September 23rd 1966 with his new manager Chas Chandler and within a couple of days started auditioning for The Experience. Noel Redding got the nod on September 30th with drummer Mitch Miller joining on October 5th. After three days of rehearsals, the band played a four-date French tour supporting Johnny Hallyday and Brian Auger. Wild Thing was the finale of the October 18th show at Paris Olympia; all the other tracks on this LP come from recordings that were broadcast in the first five months of 1967.
