The fourth album mixes

There has been much speculation about what would have been Jimi's fourth studio album.
Some of the many working titles for Jimi's fourth album were "Freedom", "Both Ways","People, Hell and Angels"*, "Shine On", "Gypsy Sun", "First Rays Of The New Rising Sun" and his last memo called it "Straight Ahead".
Here's a run-down of the "Cry Of Love" and "Rainbow Bridge" tracks which were completed/mixed by Jimi
and those that were altered/completed after he died.
Thanks to Dino for all this !
