Like so many of his songs, Hendrix tracked numerous versions of Lover Man, but this rendition, also cut at Olympic Studios, is more fleshed out that the recording that appeared on South Saturn Delta.
The pace is a shuffle, and the song is a good two minutes shorter, but there’s purpose behind this take. Mitch Mitchell seems to anticipate Jimi’s every tangled lick and bend - he’s got his back and he doesn’t let one second slip by.
At times, drummer and guitarist even sound as if they’re playing in unison. Jimi’s vocal is cocky, dripping with sex, and his intricate soloing is broken up by splashes of flashy rhythm-lead work.
