Buddy Miles - We Got To Live Together
n 1970, after the Buddy Miles Express split up, Miles began a collaboration with Hendrix and bassist Billy Cox. Together, they formed Band of Gypsys, producing one self-titled live album before disbanding.
Later in 1970, while recording the album We Got To Live Together, Buddy Miles learned of the death of Hendrix, which he mentions on the inner cover of the album. Released in 1971, We Got To Live Together was produced by Miles and Robin McBride. It comprises five songs, including the instrumental "Easy Greasy". The other cuts on the album were "Runaway Child (Little Miss Nothin)", "Walking Down the Highway", "We Got To Live Together" and "Take It Off Him and Put It on Me". All the songs were written by Miles with Charlie Karp except for the latter. With its high energy drumming, funky overtones and big horns, this album was described as quintessential Buddy Miles
