To complement the above, and for a bit of a northern spin on the topic, I covered a bit of the early days of the Hendrix interaction with Nashville R&B scene in the King Kasuals / Jimmy Church bio here in House of Broken Hearts:

There's a pretty neat photo of Jimi at a table in a club, possibly on Jefferson Street, with individuals associated with the Southern City label (Paramount Four etc) which appears in the book, previously unseen.

He was also on Frank Howard and the Commanders “I’m so glad”.

More from HOBH: “In July or August 1965, Billy Cox presented two of his own compositions, “I’m So Glad” and “I’m Sorry For You” to Frank Howard. Bill Allen was producing that session at Starday King studios on Dickerson Road. Jimi Hendrix was in the studio; Billy Cox previously commented that after Jimi Hendrix had left Little Richard’s band, he moved constantly backwards and forwards to Nashville, picking up odd jobs, before departing to join the Isley Brothers in New York. Other musicians on the session included Cox on bass, drummer Freeman Brown and a horn section led by Harrison Callaway. Allen just wanted Jimi to play a basic rhythm. Hendrix had a compulsion to express himself musically even at this stage, and demonstrated this in the session. Hoss didn’t think this was appropriate so turned his mic down on the session and “cut him in and out”. The record was ultimately released in 1966 on Barry, an Old Town subsidiary label (Barry 1008)”

I haven’t had time to read the article yet and this may be in the article, Mark’ s book, or elsewhere so if this is mentioned before then sorry)- Jimi played with Joey Dee and The Starlighters for 7 months ( after he played behind the Isley Bros)
