Stepping out retirement here to shed some much needed light on this Dance nonsense. Two things: -the riff Jimi is often said to have borrowed is *played by Jimi* on the 12/67 JHE recording. The basic clean toned guitar is Noel, the distorted guitar line similar to Ezy Ryder is played by the great man himself. -Dance is a Redding/Hendrix co-write. At least that is what Noel says in several early 1968 interviews as well as written correspondence during the period. Noel had high hopes that Dance would appear on a post Axis 45 release and for a short period such a release was considered by all involved. I love the guy but Noel's claim that Jimi stole his 'booker T riff' for Midnight and his 'My Friend' title are complete non-sense. Ditto his account of the events surrounding Denver '69.
