Bob Dylan: Highway 61 Revisited

Well Mack the Finger said to Louie the King
I got forty red white and blue shoe strings
And a thousand telephones that don’t ring
Do you know where I can get rid of these things
And Louie the King said let me think for a minute son
And he said yes I think it can be easily done
Just take everything down to Highway 61

Jimi Hendrix Experience: Third Stone From The Sun

Wikipedia has a nice write-up about the tune:

With the track sped-up by a factor of two (or playing the 33 1/3 RPM LP at 45 RPM), one can clearly hear what is said, especially at the beginning of the song. The version heard on The Jimi Hendrix Experience: 1966-1967 begins with the overdub session for the dialogue, including Hendrix and Chas Chandler’s first “verse” at regular speed, including two incomplete outtakes:

  • Hendrix : Star fleet to scout ship, please give your position. Over.
  • Chandler : I am in orbit around the third planet of star known as sun. Over.
  • Hendrix : May this be Earth? Over.
  • Chandler : Positive. It is known to have some form of intelligent species. Over.
  • Hendrix : I think we should take a look,(Jimi then makes vocal spaceship noises).

On the original mono version (titled “3rd Stone From The Sun”) the last line is buried by a normal speed overdub of Jimi saying “War, speak water” followed by a very quiet “Speak” (He later used this unusual phrase in ‘Freedom’ - “You’ve got my heart, speak electric water”) this was removed from the Stereo version in favour of revealing the last line - “I think we should take a look”

The later stereo mix reveals more slowed talk e.g. “Yeah, a acid drop can make people fly” etc.

Towards the end of the song, which was the only instrumental on the album, Hendrix, in a taunt to the popular music of the period, says, “To you I shall put an end, then you’ll never hear surf music again.” The aforementioned overdub sessions reveals two additional sentences:

  • Hendrix: …Then you’ll never hear surf music again. That sounds like a lie to me. Come on, man; let’s go home.
