Are You Experienced? was recorded over a five-month period between October 1966 and April 1967. Recording for the album began on 23 October, 1966, with the Experience recording Hey Joe at De Lane Lea Studios. The band’s manager, Chas Chandler, decided that they should use an original composition for the B-side of the single for Hey Joe, so he encouraged Hendrix to start writing. Hendrix composed his first Experience song, Stone Free, the following day. Following a short break from recording whilst the band toured Europe, the Experience returned to the studio, this time at CBS Studios, on 13 December, 1966. It was during this session that the band recorded Foxy Lady and Third Stone from the Sun; as such, it is fair to assume that the fragment of lyrics in this lot was written by Hendrix between 24 October and 13 December, 1966. Foxy Lady was reportedly written by Hendrix about Heather Taylor, a London socialite, who later married the Who's Roger Daltrey.
