RUHtf Gem of the week: Jimi Hendrix - Doriella Du Fontaine

Think you know Hendrix? Can groove along to "Foxey Lady" a la Garth?? Got all the releases and box sets and reissues?? You don't know nothing about Hendrix til you say you have heard "Doriella Du Fontaine". This is definitely a bona-fide rare gem. It's a 1969 jam with Jimi Hendrix (of the Jimi Hendrix Experience), Buddy Miles (of Band Of Gypsys) and Lightning Rod (of The Last Poets). This is rap before rap was ever rap. This is extremely hard to find, but for you, the RUHtf reader, I present one of the fonkiest grooves ever committed to vinyl:
