    "Stepping Stone " b/w "Izabella" US/Canada Reprise

    4 different US (stock and promo)/Canada (2 tone/Brown )
    shown credited to Hendrix Band of Gypsys.

    Released in US/Canada April 13 1970.Single did not chart. Never released in UK.
    Withdrawn from US market quickly because Jimi wasn't happy with mix and it was also released prematurely without his OK.

    Produced by Heaven Research and engineered by Bob Hughes (control room voice)at Record Plant.
    Recorded February 15 ,1970.Working song titles included "Sky Blues Today" , "I'm a Man" and finally renamed "Stepping Stone" ."Rolling Stone" was the lyric used when they performed it live 1/1/70 at Fillmore East first show.

    Heaven Research Unlimited was composed of Jimi and Arthur and Albert Allen who played percussion on "Izabella"

    Essentially a Band of Gypsys single w/ Billy Cox on bass and Buddy Miles on the drumkit.
