In 1970, get closing with pop culture, the French songwriter Léo Ferré has a project with Hendrix. At last, Léo Ferré achieved it with John McLaughlin on guitar and Billy Cobham on drums. "Le Chien" ('The Dog' in english) is actually cover by Jef Lee Johnson. It's amazing to listen how the tune sounds like "Doriella Du Fontaine". Another project with Hendrix and Lightnin' Rod from the Last Poets, a proto-hip hop band. "Doriella" was produced by Alan Douglas who was near the guitarist in the late 1969. The third tune is about Radio Citizen first album. The group comes from Berlin and led by Niko Schabel. Schabel already perfomed with Express Brass Band, Poets o Rythm, Jojo Kuo and Last Poets.
